The Mustang soccer team finished fifth at the Oologah Showcase tournament last week with wins over Jenks JV and Rejoice and a loss to Tulsa Memorial.
“We continued to play better as a team throughout the tournament and that will serve us well as we head into district play,” Mustang head coach Tyler Chronister said. “We will have another tough test against Ft. Gibson fresh off of spring break before we open districts at Riverfield in Tulsa.”
Oologah opened the tournament in a 2-1 loss to a talented 5A #12 Tulsa Memorial.
Senior Shawn Worley scored in the first half off an assist from Wyatt Tucker. Memorial scored two quick goals to start the second half and Oologah moved into the consolation bracket. Senior Mark Franklin had five saves in the net.
The Mustangs took down Rejoice 4-0 in the second round.
Sophomore Justin Snook scored two goals for Oologah. Kolton Kitterman scored off a header on a corner kick from senior Josh Snook.
Freshman Bracken Sharp scored the final goal with an assist from Adam Long. Franklin had two saves in goal.
Oologah finished the tournament with a 3-0 win over the Jenks JV squad.
“This was a very physical well fought game. We had to play on a different surface but we still found a way to score goals and get a shutout,” coach Chronister said.
Worley had one goal with an assist from Josh Snook and another goal off an assist from Justin Snook. Josh Snook scored the third goal off an assist from Justin Snook. Franklin had four saves.
