Chickasha soccer wins two at Del City

— After playing to a 1-1 tie in their first game against Carl Albert, the Lady Chicks unleashed their offense against Del City on Tuesday.

Chickasha beat the Lady Eagles 10-0 in a game that only lasted 32 minutes.

Head coach Bethany Goble said her reserves played much of the shortened game, giving the starters, who are banged up, a chance to rest.

The girls were on the same page all game, and it showed in the result, said Goble.

"The ability to work as a unit," Goble said about what her team improved on. "We didn't just send two attackers up, we all attacked as a team. That's something we're working together on, our defensive unit joining with our attacking four.

"I tell the girls, we're all defenders and we're all attackers," she said. "They're learning when we get the ball, we play it quick. I'm just looking for quick touches and everyone attacking as a team."

Chickasha had 27 shots on goal, and Del City had none, making for an easy game for goalkeeper Casey Black.

Hannah Elrod led the team with four goals. Kelsey Taylor and Ashley Owens had two goals, and Alyssa Willetts and Lucia Avila scored one goal each.

Willetts had two assists, and Taylor, Tara Arnold and Scenic Mosley had one assist each.

Fightin' Chicks get first win

The Chickasha High School boys soccer team followed up the girls blowout with one of their own, beating the Del City Eagles to win their first game of the season.

The Fightin' Chicks won the game 8-0, and are now 1-1 this season.

Devin Warden scored four foals, Cole Young scored two, Junior Avila scored one and Ryan Mosley scored one.

"We brought a squad of 19, and everyone got valuable playing time, and we got a few young freshmen in that have been performing extremely well in practice and warranted some time on the field," head coach Scott Parkinson said.

Parkinson said the team's offense, which is the weaker part of the team at this point of the season, showed improvement from the first game.

"We changed our formation slightly, and we went to the solid eight; four defenders, four midfielders, and we just switch out strikers constantly," Parkinson said. "So we felt the eight were our foundation, and the guys that were coming in every seven or eight minutes had fresh legs."

Del City got a few shots on Chickasha's goal, but none from close range. Parkinson said his defenders need to stay alert, even in a game like Tuesday's.

"I told the boys that I think in games like that, you've got to be careful not to switch off at the back," Parkinson said.

Chickasha's next game is scheduled for 5:30 (girls) and 7:30 p.m. (boys) at Guthrie on Thursday evening.
