NOBLE — Shawnee’s girls and boys recorded victories Thursday in opening-round action of the Rose Rock Invitational.

The Wolves remained undefeated (6-0) by blanking Guthrie 4-0 after leading 3-0 at the half.

In just the third minute of play, senior Seth King goaled for a 1-0 lead. Four minutes later, King posted his second goal off an assist from Lucas Gann.

At the 24-minute mark, King assisted on a goal by junior Josh Floyd to make it 3-0.

The only second-half goal came on Floyd’s penalty kick in the 45th minute.

In the first half, the goal-keeping duties were handled by junior Sebastian Rodriguez, who finished with two saves.

Senior Tristan Haddad chalked up three saves in the second half.

Shawnee will face Durant in today’s 2:30 semifinals. A victory would place Shawnee in Saturday’s 8:30 p.m. finals. A loss today would put the Wolves in Saturday’s 5:30 third-place match.

In the last four years, Durant has recorded a 3-1 record against Shawnee.

“We are looking to turn that around,” Shawnee coach Jason Merrell said. “We are looking forward to it.”


Shawnee posted a 2-0 decision over Guthrie to move to 4-2 on the season.

Junior Hailey Satterfield scored the first goal on a free kick in the 15th minute of the opening half.

Fifteen minutes into the closing half, sophomore Trinity Citizen scored on a penalty kick.

Sophomore goal-keeper Braunya Lewis collected seven saves.

Shawnee hasn’t allowed a goal in its four victories. Jenks and Choctaw registered seven goals each in wins over Shawnee.

“This was one of the first games all year where it was really a team win,” SHS coach Danny Kessner said. “Everyone was involved. We played the ball well out the back and possessed the ball really well.”

Shawnee will continue Invitational play at 1 p.m. today opposite semifinal foe Durant. Should Shawnee win that matchup, it would oppose the Noble-Ada winner at 7 p.m. Saturday for the championship. A Shawnee loss today would put the Lady Wolves in Saturday’s 4 p.m. third-place game against the Noble-Ada loser.
