MOORE — The Oklahoma Soccer Coaches Association All-State Games ended a three-night run with Saturday night’s Class 6A girls and boys games were held Saturday at Racers Stadium in Newcastle.

The East girls defeated the West 3-0 with a dominating performance from their forward line. The West featured Soutmoore’s Alyssa Glitzke and Kenzie Bice, Moore’s Cindy Ramos and Westmoore’s Tiffany Hall

The West boys prevailed 3-1. The Jaguars Chris Ong was on the winning side.

Moore War: The 5th annual Annual Moore War Run is at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug.24. This 5K run through downtown Moore benefits the scholarship funds for Moore and Westmoore. This run is sanctioned by the USATF and timed with ChampionChips.

Since 1988, Lions and Jaguars have sparred against one another in a race to determine the big cat in town. When it comes to Moore War, rivalries run deep and emotions run high. Each August, alums from Moore and Westmoore, as well as members of the community, put aside their differences to come together for a common cause--current students.
