GUYMON â€” Two current and one former Lady Tiger soccer players committed to continue their soccer careers at the next level after signing letters of intent to play at Garden City (Kan.) Community College next season.
Current seniors Denesse Longoria and Yasmeen Chaparro and former Lady Tiger Vanessa Godina will head to Kansas next fall.
â€śI called coach (Charles Long) and said Iâ€™ve got two, I think Iâ€™ve got one more,â€ť Guymon coach Michelle Davis said. â€śVanessa was working full time, and coach gave her this opportunity to come back and play.â€ť
GUYMON â€” The Capitol Hill Redskins scored a goal in the first few minutes of Fridayâ€™s match at Guymon and made it stand to hand the host Tigers a 1-0 loss in the season-opener at Carl & Lou McKinnon Field.
Capitol Hill out-shot Guymon 17-8, but the Tigers only managed four shots on goal â€” one each by Edgar Salinas (who would replace an injured John Avalos at goal), Josue Espinoza, Levi Bowers and Miguel OrdoĂ±ez.
Juan Cerda took three shots, but not on goal.
Guymon (0-1) is next in action Friday at 7 p.m. at home against Del City.
GUYMON â€” Mother Nature has not been kind to the Guymon Lady Tigers soccer team. The first game of the season was snowed out last Tuesday, and Fridayâ€™s district game against Capitol Hill was played under the spectre of a Winter Weather Advisory.
But despite falling temperatures and a blustery northeast wind, the snow stayed away long enough for the Lady Tigers to register a 3-0 win over the Lady Redskins.

HOOKER â€” The Road to The Big House continues for the Hooker Lady Bulldogs as they begin play in the Class 2A Area Tournament at Southwestern Oklahoma State Universityâ€™s Pioneer Cellular Events Center in Weatherford this evening.
Itâ€™s a tougher road to plow for Hooker after falling to Thomas in the 2A Regional Championship last Saturday in Burns Flat â€” theyâ€™ve got to win three in a row. But it isnâ€™t anything Hooker head coach Ray Kennedy hasnâ€™t experienced before in his 2-plus decades at the school.
