Making such an adjustment is nothing new to Chickasha. After hosting the Chickasha Invitational, the Lady Chicks went a week without playing before welcoming Newcastle at home on April 8, a game they won 2-1. It was the beginning of a wondrous district season.
"They're eager, ready to play," Goble said. "I think the week off has made them excited and ready to get out there."
The signs look positive for Chickasha, so long as they continue the work that got them here. Weatherford suffered a 1-0 loss to non-district Elgin, the team Chickasha beat 2-0 in the final game of the season.
Both teams have about a +40 differential between goals scored and goals conceded. Although if Weatherford had issues with the Elgin attack, it'll be even more difficult for them against the Lady Chicks, who offer more outlets for goals and are a faster team comparatively.
It will be fitting, then, that they face a Lady Eagles defense that did not concede a goal until eight games into the season, in that loss to Elgin.
