Moore boys off to solid start on pitch in 2014

MOORE — The Moore boys soccer team has been playing at an impressive start to the season. That included winning its first five contest of the season.

“Early part of the season has been great, getting better each game,” MHS coach Ronnie Gulikers said.

Facing some stiff competition, the Lions had a good showing at the always tough Bronchos Cup in Mustangs two weeks. It gave them a chance to see where they stood in relation to other quality 6A teams.

“The Broncho Cup was a great experience for us,” Gulikers said. “We had to play at a high level and stay focused for 80 minutes against top teams from around the state.”

Moore came out of Broncho Cup and picked up a 3-1 district win over Choctaw. They got goals from Josh Wright and Kevin McGee. Will Allen, Oscar Nigara, Julius James and Kyle Sutton also have provided strong play.

“Our ability to fight throw adversity and play together as a team,” Gulikers said. “Could always improve on winning balls in the air, finishing, and movement off the ball.”

The Lions face Edmond North, Norman and Edmond Santa Fe in their next three games as they move closer to the postseason.

 “I want to see the desire and determination from our team,” Gulikers said. “It should be visible that we are unselfish and play for each other.  We need to go out and put a complete 80 minutes together and play our game at the highest level we can.”

TRACK

The Westmoore boys track team won its second consecutive meet Friday when it dominated the Putnam City Original High School track meet.

The Jaguars racked up 116 points to take the title. Edmond Santa Fe was second with 96 while Norman (76), MacArthur (66) and Moore (56) rounded out the top five.

Once again, Westmoore got a strong performance from its relay units as they took second in the 4x100, first in the 4x800, third in the 4x200 and third in the 4x400.
