Boys bounce back in consolation win



Chance after chance fell for Chickasha in the second half, but to no avail. Webb was outstanding, but could only watch on one occasion as Warden’s rolling shot hit the base of the post. Magyver Boles picked it up, got around his man and fired a shot to the near left post only to see it cannon off the upright once again. 

Elgin’s best chance to pull one back came from a Bradyn Sellars corner kick with about 11 minutes to play. Zach Taylor jumped high in the air for the header, but Chickasha goalkeeper Riley Williams was there to get his fingertips to the shot and push it onto the bar and out. 

While pleased with the result, head coach Scott Parkinson said Chickasha need to learn how to maintain a top performance level game-to-game.

“I think it was a good response for the first half,” Parkinson said. “It seems like we play well for a full game or a half, it goes to their head, and it’s a catastrophe. It’s almost like we play better when we’re wounded, and that’s not acceptable. We’ve got to find a way of keeping that level, regardless of score or opposition.”

Chickasha play in the boys consolation final at 5 p.m.
