NORMAN — Goalie Kelsy Dowd stopped 15 of 16 shots, but Ada couldn’t take advantage of second-half scoring opportunities and lost 1-0 to the Norman North junior varsity in the Lady Cougars’ final pre-season scrimmage Monday.

“After the goal, Kelsy played a heck of a game,” Ada coach Donna Cox said. “She made 15 saves, and one shot blooped in.

“We had 15 shots on goal and we played a lot better in the second half,” Cox added. “We had several opportunites in the second half but they just didn’t go in. I felt like our second half was much better than our first half as far as getting the ball down the field and getting some offensive play.”

The Ada boys and girls soccer squads open the season Friday at Chickasha, with the girls game at 6 p.m and the boys at 8 p.m.
