MADILL – Amanda Shorman scored her ninth goal of the season, while the freshman duo of Klaudia Sotelo and Indy Hughes got into the scoring act as the Ada Lady Cougars secured a 3-0 soccer victory over Madill Friday at Blake Smiley Stadium.
“We relied heavily on our younger girls,” said Ada girls head coach Hannah McCullough. “Each girl played their role in the win, and I’m proud of the scrappiness of this team.”
Ada improved to 5-5 overall and 2-1 in District 4A-3 play, while Madill dropped to 2-8 and 0-3. Ada is currently third in the district standings behind Harrah (3-0) and Dove Science (3-0).
McCullough praised the play of freshman Maryanne Criswell at midfield and Madi Wilson in goal.
“Maryanne Criswell played one of her most physical games and helped control the midfield,” McCullough said. “Madi Wilson held the shutout with several great saves.”
The Lady Cougars’ next action will be a district contest at Bridge Creek.

A penalty kick in overtime by Madill freshman Francisco Perez lifted the hosts to a 2-1 decision over the Cougars. Perez had both goals for the Wildcats.
Ada’s lone score came from Taylor Byrd, who bounced a shot off Madill goalie Ulysses Camacho with 12:41 left in the match.
“(Goalkeeper) Hunter Wilson made several great saves to keep us in the game,” said Ada boys head coach Cole Jones. “Isaac Cruz and Salvador Vallin played hard and did their best to control the midfield.”
Ada dropped to 8-3 overall and 2-1 in District 4A-3 action. Madill improved to 8-3 and 3-0. Dove Science is 2-0 in the district, and Community Christian — who will visit Ada High School on Thursday — is tied with the Cougars at 2-1.
