Lady Pioneers fall short of first win in fight with Pacers

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater girls soccer team’s most competitive game this season came against Enid in the Stillwater Cup two weeks ago. Friday night, Stillwater had its chances but three second-half goals lifted the Pacers to a 3-0 victory on senior night.

Friday’s game was the fewest goals Stillwater allowed since the 2-0 loss to Enid in the Stillwater Cup on March 29. The Lady Pioneers (0-10, 0-4) had several chances to score, including on a free kick and corner kick. Two of the shots went over the net. For most of the first half, the Stillwater was on the offensive. Neither team found the back of the net in a scoreless first half.

“I think we played pretty well in the first half,” coach Joey Parker said. “I think we played pretty good in the second half. ... We had some good opportunities but we didn’t finish on them. All in all, my girls played well.”

The Lady Pacers (8-1, 3-0) quickly turned the momentum in the second half. Junior Abigail Resendiz put Enid on the board at the 27:58 mark. On the next possession, Sophie Holle made it 2-0. Enid had a breakaway opportunity with Brieanna Glaze but Alona Williams made the stop. Shelley Mueller got a breakaway and she converted with 20:33 left in the game.

Friday was the final home game for Lauren Parker, Monica Breivik, Jenkyns McAfee, Amber Most, Jessie Ralston, Hailey Selman and Josie Lathrop.

Parker said he wished the game turned out better for his seniors but is proud of them.

“The journey has been a good one because I’ve been fortunate to be with them the whole time,” Parker said. “Sure, I wish things would have been better. It would have been nice to have a win on senior night. They did their best and that’s all you can do in life.”

Stillwater finishes its season on the road starting with No. 13 Bixby on Friday.

“We go to our next game and do our best,” Parker said. “What happens, happens. That’s the main thing with us. I’m not giving up.”
