CHICKASHA — For the second time in two days the Chickasha girls were well on top in an 8-1 drubbing of Santa Fe South.
The Lady Chicks move to 2-0 on the season with the win. Sophomore Taylor Lessig continued her impessive start to the season with a haul of five goals in the win. Ashley Owens bagged two while senior Alyssa Willetts put in her second goal in as many games.
It was the Lessig show for the first quarter of an hour. That’s as long as it took her to complete a hat trick. About five minutes later, Willetts had her goal. The senior picked up the ball in midfield before beating three defenders and blazing a shot low to the Santa Fe keeper’s right.
Owens made it five with about 10 minutes remaining in the first half. The move began with junior Tara Arnold further back than the left winger normally operates. She began a switch to the right by sending the ball up to Willetts who then sent a pass into Owens down the right. After the first show was saved, she made no mistakes on the follow-up to tuck it into the far corner.
Santa Fe did pull a goal back off a free kick, the first Chickasha has conceded in two games this season. That was quickly forgotten when, not a minute later, Lessig put away her fourth of the game by hitting home the rebound off the keeper from Owens’ shot.
Clearly benefitting from a move further up the pitch this season, Owens was clinical with her second of the game after halftime. Willetts once again provided the service down the right, and her shot was too strong for the keeper as it seemed to go through the left hand and right off the near post into the back of the net.
The Chickasha boys were also involved in a one-sided game but found themselves on the wrong end of a 10-0 result.
The match was called off with 30 minutes to go in the second half due to the deficit. State finalists Santa Fe were ruthless in the blustery conditions that only made things more difficult for Chickasha in the first half when the wind was right in their faces.
