EHS soccer teams sweep Sand Springs

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. —  Enid started off its soccer season with a pair of wins Friday night as the Plainsmen topped host Sand Springs 2-0 and the Pacers won on  penalty kicks after playing to a 1-1 tie in regulation.

Felix Mora opened the scoring for the Plainsmen in the nightcap, drilling the ball past the Sandites’ goalkeeper from 30 yards out in the 11th minute of the first half to give Enid a 1-0 lead. Enid made it 2-0 in the eighth minute of the second half, following a steal by Pedro Braga, who the passed the ball to Antoni Camarena. Camarena’s shot on goal was saved, but the rebound came back to Braga who buried the shot.

Victor I. Hernandez earned the shutout in net for the Plainsmen.

“It was a good, scrappy battle for the first game,” said Enid head coach Craig Liddell.

In the girls game, the Pacers took a 1-0 lead seven minutes into the second half when Abigail Resendiz buried a free kick in the roof of the Sandites’ goal. Sand Springs came back to tie the game 1-1 on a 25-footer that found its way into the net with six minutes left in the half.

The game went to penalty kicks where Enid scored on all four its chances on goals from Shelley Mueller, Sophe Holle, Resendiz and Kamika Ralstin. EHS goalkeeper Grace Enmeier stopped Sand Springs on its first and fourth penalty kicks to give the Pacers a 4-2 edge and the win.

“I’m ecstatic,” Liddell said. “We’ve just got some work to do, but overall it was good soccer.”

Enid next plays Woodward Tuesday in its home opener at D. Bruce Selby Stadium.

    Two games, just over 12 percent of the 16-game regular season. Two games for hitting a woman hard enough to knock her out cold.
    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
