McALESTER – Host McAlester edged out Shawnee in a penalty-kick shootout 4-3 and claimed a 2-1 decision over the Wolves Friday in high school soccer action.

Daniel King lifted Shawnee to a 1-0 advantage with an unassisted goal in the 28th minute. However, McAlester tied it up in the 32nd minute off an errant pass which led to a one-on-one situation as the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in regulation and into overtime.

In the shootout, Matt Gasca, Titus Wright and Michael Jordan-Wood each connected for penalty-kick scores, but the Buffs converted four of them for the victory.

Goalkeeper George Coons was credited with eight saves for the Wolves.

The Lady Wolves and Wolves are scheduled to play at Carl Albert Tuesday.
