SOCCER: Sandite teams blank Tahlequah

Sand Springs 3, Tahlequah 0 (girls): The Lady Sandites got three goals from three different players in a 3-0 shutout win.

Juniors Ari Esparza and Baylee Metcalfe, and freshman Karsen Lynch scored goals for Sand Springs. Esparza scored at the 27:24 mark of the first half, and Metcalfe added another with around eight minutes before halftime.

With a 2-0 lead in the second half, Lynch scored the final goal of the game, and the Sandite girls notched their second-straight win of the season.

“I think we played great tonight,” said head coach Matt Watkins. “I really like the fact that we got scores by three different players -- two of them being midfielders.”

Sophomore goalkeeper Allie Day wasn’t really tested, ending with five saves, and the Sandite defense played strong.

“We were disciplined on defense and didn’t panic when we got into bad situations. Lizzy Horn was a workhorse up top, and our pass combinations really started to open the field up,” Watkins said.
