Jenks girls blank Pacers, boys game postponed

ENID, Okla. — The shots told the story in the Enid girls’ soccer team against No. 3 Jenks Thursday at D. Bruce Selby Stadium.

The Pacers finished with two shots on the game, only one of them — with 9 seconds remaining — was on net. Jenks challenged Pacer keeper Grace Enmeier for the first time in the second minute, and hardly let up from there, peppering the Pacers with 20 chances on 34 shots to beat host Enid, 6-0.

“We had a game plan that kept us in the game,” Enid coach Craig Liddell said. “Tactically, we were good — kids knew what they were meant to be doing — but when (Jenks) is that athletic, that powerful, and when there are the little breakdowns technically, when they got the ball they kept the ball, and when we got the ball, we turned it over.”

Enmeier had saves on Jenks’ first four attempts, the most dangerous on the Lady Trojans’ first try, a chip attempt inside 10 yards that Enmeier caught.

Jenks scored on its fifth opportunity from the right corner of the 18-yard box in the 15th minute, and would put another shot on net before Enid (4-7) would get its first chance, which landed harmlessly at the side of the Lady Trojans’ net.

Jenks (9-1) added three more goals in the first half and bookended the second half with two more tallies — one two minutes in and a second with 9:31 remaining.

Shortly after the end of the Pacers’ loss, a power outage knocked out the lights, scoreboard and press box at Selby Stadium, postponing the Plainsmen’s game with top-ranked Jenks until next Thursday, though a specific time hadn’t been set.

The rescheduled game will force the Plainsmen (5-5) to play three games in a week and needing to win at least two to have an opportunity for a playoff berth. The Plainsmen and Pacers host Stillwater on Tuesday, Enid’s senior night starting at 6 p.m. with the girls’ game, and then visit Midwest City on Friday.

The Pacers also remain in the playoff picture, but likely will need to win both games next week to remain there.
