He then beat West to a ball passed down the left side to go in one-on-one. Warden’s right footed shot sailed frustratingly high and wide.
The equalizer came with just under six minutes to go in the half. Cooper Mosely lined up a free kick on the right. His cross in ventured too close to the goal, and Shawnee keeper Bronson Wise could do nothing but watch as it curled inwards and just under the bar at the far post. Warden had a chance to make it 2-1 before the break off a corner, but his header from point blank range was well saved by Wise on the goal line.
In the second half, Chickasha switched to a more attacking formation with three strikers up top, and it almost paid off immediately. Hayden Johnson ran onto a pass down the left side before cutting back in and past three converging defenders. With just the keeper to beat, he got to the ball first only to watch his shot sail inches wide to the left.
With the more open field after the switch of tactics, Shawnee struck quickly. Young pounced for the Wolves’ second with 10 minutes left when a Chickasha goal kick failed to make it out of the defensive third of the field. Williams was left stranded with Young clean through and the striker finished powerfully.
A free kick deep in Shawnee’s half led to their second in six minutes. Austin McKay ran onto the long ball down the left and sent a pass across the face of goal where McKee bundled it home.
Another long-ball created the Chicks’ consolation late on. Wise failed to collect the lob into the box and the ball rolled out to Mata who finished low and hard first time into the left corner with about three minutes left.
