For the second time in as many years and the third time in school history, the Shawnee Lady Wolves played in the state soccer tournament. The Lady Wolves saw their season come to a close Tuesday at the hands of Tulsa Booker T. Washington, 4-0.
The game remained scoreless for the better part of the first half, but a costly Shawnee mistake allowed Washington a goal 25 minutes into the game, giving the Lady Hornets a 1-0 lead at halftime.
“It was a tough half of play,” Shawnee head coach Justin McCain said. “We had our chances but didn’t convert, and we made just one mistake that cost us a goal.”
The Lady Hornets scored a goal early in the second half to take a 2-0 lead. The Wolves changed their alignment to try to get more scoring chances, but the Lady Hornets took advantage and scored two more goals to put the game out of reach.
“We had about three minutes of horrible play and they took advantage of it,” McCain said.
The Lady Wolves had 10 good shots on goal but failed to convert.
Goalkeeper Laynie Henry came up with 16 saves.
“I’m very proud of these girls and all they have accomplished,” said McCain. “They have taken the program to a new level of success.”
Shawnee concluded the season with a 6-6 mark.
