Southmoore falls to Yukon in tourney finale

MOORE — The Southmoore girls soccer team finished second at the SaberCat Classic soccer tournament this weekend. They fell to No. 13 Yukon 2-1 in the championship game Saturday at Southmoore.

“All the girls worked very hard and I am proud of how we played,” SaberCats coach Katy Swartzendruber said. “We made some changes to our formation and our starting lineup and we showed much improvement this weekend compared to our first two non-district games.”

Southmoore got strong play from senior Hannah Robinson and junior Jaclyn Purvine.

But it was the overall defense is an area the coaching staff says still needs some work.

“Our defense is playing much better but we still have some communication issues that we need to get worked out,” Swartzendruber said. “We also need to work on maintaining possession and creating more scoring opportunities in the final third of the field.”

Southmoore jumps directly into district action this week with games against Midwest City Thursday and Edmond North Tuesday.

“District play is much more aggressive and physical as every team is fighting for a playoff spot,” Swartzendruber said. “We have to be prepared to meet the challenge every game and improve every game as a team.”


Mayors Cup

The Annual Mayors Cup is on tap for Saturday at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. The event, which pits Moore schools against Edmond schools in three baseball games, starts at 11 a.m.

The Moore Lions kick-off the event when it faces Edmond North in the first game of the day.

“The players love it gives them a different look at what baseball can be,” MHS coach Tony Borum said. “I think the attendance from the six schools is good most parents go but it is such a big place it looks like not many people are there. We have about the same amount of fans for our games on a regular bases.”

The other two contests are set for 2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
