Oologah’s soccer season ended Friday with a 6-2 loss to Poteau.
The Mustangs lost to the #1 team in 4A in the second round of playoffs.
“Poteau is a good team. We didn’t play our best Friday, but the guys battled their tails off all night,” Oologah head coach Chase Kime said.
The Pirates scored two goals to start the game and they never trailed. Oologah got on the board midway through the first half.
Wyatt Tucker sent a corner kick in front of the goal. Junior Josh Snook scored on a header in front of a crowded net. Poteau was up 2-1 at half-time.
The Pirates pulled away in the second half. Poteau scored two quick goals and the Oologah coaches moved a defender up field to create some scoring opportunities.
The tactic worked. Snook ricocheted a shot off a Poteau defender for a goal to cut the lead to 4-2.
The Pirates scored two more goals on breakaways and the Mustangs went down 6-2.
Oologah finished the season ranked #3 with a 13-2 record. Junior Shawn Worley led the team in scoring with 16 goals, Kolton Kitterman had 9 and Snook had 8 goals.
Snook led the team in assists with ten and Tucker had seven. Mark Franklin had 67 saves in the net and only allowed ten goals.
“I am so proud of what the guys were able to accomplish this year,” Kime said.
