  • Shawnee’s soccer teams opened their 2013 seasons at Jim Thorpe Stadium Tuesday, and each recorded 10-0 wins against Del City.
     
    The Lady Wolves led 6-0 at halftime, and the game was stopped with 15 minutes remaining on the mercy rule.
     
    Chelsea Evans scored the first of her two goals on the night just 35 seconds in to get Shawnee started. Evans was assisted on the goal by Jordan Leach, who came away with three assists and two goals on the night.
     
    Evans also had three assists, and Shannon Spillers posted two. Jordan Brittain had one.
     
    Spillers finished with two goals, and Brittain, Memery Sloan and Darrian Bingham notched one apiece. Keeper Lauren Mackey, who took a penalty kick, got the first goal of her career.
     
    She finished with three saves in the net.
     
    “We’re really young this year,” said Lady Wolves coach Justin McCain.
     
    McCain has no starting seniors, and he starts three juniors.
     
    “We’ve really been focusing on getting them into shape and getting organized,” McCain said. “I was really pleased. When we do the right thing, we help each other and we get a lot of goals. We really played like a team tonight, and that gives me a lot of confidence.”
     
    The Lady Wolves (1-0) will take on Western Heights at 5 p.m. Friday in the first round of the Rose Rock Tournament in Noble. The Lady Wolves won the tournament last year, and will attempt their first-ever back-to-back taking of the title.
     
    For the Wolves, Khaliq Berryman led with three goals against Del City. Alec Young, Kade Dixson and Austin McKay posted two each, and Tyler Adams got one. Young and McKay had one assist each, and Grayson Pierce had two.
     
    Branson Wise had two saves in goal.
     
    The Wolves led 4-0 at the half, and the game was stopped with 20 minutes remaining on the mercy rule.
     
    “They’re playing to their potential, but we’ve still got some work to do,” said Wolves coach Paul Marshall.
     
    The Wolves, now 1-0, will face Western Heights at 3:30 p.m. Friday in the first round of the Rose Rock Tournament in Noble.
