ADA — Seniors Caitlin Patrizi and Joy Barrick combined for seven goals, and Ada rode an eight-goal first half to a 10-0 victory over Capitol Hill Monday night in a match that ended on the mercy rule just eight minutes into the second half.

In the boys’ contest, Capitol Hill outshot Ada, 33-3, en route to a 9-0 victory.

Patrizi scored three first-half goals, and her fourth with 32 minutes left in the second half ended the game.

Barrick, who joined the soccer team after the Lady Cougar basketball squad was eliminated from the Class 5A state tournament, added three goals, all in the first half. Freshmen Jenny Diguilio, Stephanie Gutierrez and Cara Cliburn also had goals for Ada in the win.

The Lady Cougars (2-3) scored on 10 of their 15 shots in the game, and goalie Kelsy Dowd didn’t make a save all night.

“Our goalie never touched the ball,” Ada coach Donna Cox said. “(Capitol Hill) only crossed midfield twice.

We just totally took charge of the game and attacked their goal time and again,” Cox added. “It was total team domination all over the field.”


Capitol Hill 9, Ada 0

In contrast to the domination of the Ada girls, the Cougars were outshot, 33-3, in being routed by Capitol Hill.

“We made a lot of mental mistakes and were out of position all night,” Ada boys coach Drake Daniels said. “We’re still not working together as a team. We’re going to focus on the team concept more in practice.

“I feel we can turn things around as the season goes on,” he added. “We just need to win a few games to gain some confidence.”

Daniels said goalkeeper Aaron Robinson played well despite the nine Capitol Hill goals, making 15 saves, and the Ada coach also singled out sweeper Joel Barrick, winter Steve Silva and reserve Matt Welch for solid efforts in the loss.

The Ada junior varsity will be in action tonight, hosting Durant in a girls contest beginning at 4:30 p.m and a boys match due to start at 6 p.m., and the varsity squads play again Thursday night, when they travel to Norman to play the Norman North junior varsity.
