No. 5 Broken Arrow to strong for Lady Pioneers in Class 6A soccer playoffs

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — The Stillwater Lady Pioneers made a dream run to reach the Class 6A state soccer playoffs.

Tuesday at Broken Arrow’s Memorial Stadium, that run came to an end as the No. 5 Broken Arrow Lady Tigers scored four first- half goals in a 5-0 victory over Stillwater.

“Unfortunately we gave up some goals in the beginning that we shouldn’t have,” coach Joey Parker said. “All and in all, I’m just happy we got to this point.”

Broken Arrow (11-3) scored three goals in a 10-minute span starting with Julia Mathis at 27:19 left in the first half. Katie Killon increased the lead at 24:42. Reagan Whitlow scored with 17:36 left. Killon scored her second goal at the 5:41 mark to give the Lady Tigers a 4-0 lead.

SHS’ scoring chances were limited. The team’s best opportunity came on a free kick by Lauren Parker which BA’s goalie Taylor Stover caught.

In the second half, Stillwater (3-11) only gave up one goal on a penalty kick by Whitlow with 26:12 left in the game. The SHS coach said he liked how his squad competed in the second half.

“I was proud of how they held them in the second half, since they already had the win,” Parker said. “... All in all, it was a great group of girls and I’m privileged to have gotten the chance to coach them.”

The Lady Pioneers lose eight seniors from a team that made their first playoff appearance since 2003. Lauren Parker was the first Lady Pioneer to score against Jenks. Coach Parker said he hopes this is an experience the returning players can build on.

“It does nothing but help the program out for next year and years to come,” Parker said. ... “I’ll definitely miss this group of girls. I grew pretty fond of them. I coached a lot of them since they were little kids. Other girls will step up and take their spots.”
