|Ada Loses To Bethany|
|09/28/16 - |
The Ada High football team took a big step forward during a 35-7 win over Durant in Week 3 at Norris Field.
Ada, now 1-3 overall and 0-1 in District 4A-2 play, had four golden opportunities to score in the first quarter, but managed to cash in on just one.
|Lady Cougars Eliminated From Playoffs|
Jeff Cali: The host Plainview Lady Indians scored a run off an error in the bottom of the eighth inning to edge Ada 5-4 Thursday night in a District 4A-1 contest.|
The loss eliminated the Lady Cougars from playoff contention.
Ada fell to 12-19 overall and 4-6 in district play after consecutive one-run losses this week. The Lady Cougars dropped a 1-0 decision to Lone Grove on Monday in a game where the Lady Longhorns broke a scoreless tie with a run in the seventh inning.
Sulphur won the district with a 10-2 mark, Pauls Valley was next at 9-3, Plainview followed at 8-4 and Lone Grove secured the fourth and final playoff spot with a 7-5 record. Lone Grove earned a key 5-4 upset win over Pauls Valley that turned the Ada-Plainview contest into a must-win situation for the Lady Cougars.
|Lone Grove Slips Past Ada|
The Ada High softball team had scored 12 runs on 14 hits in a road win over Lone Grove last Thursday.
It looked like the Lady Cougars might pick up right where they left off when Morganne Freeman led off the bottom of the first inning Monday with a sharp single up the middle.
However, Ada shockingly didn’t get another hit the rest of the game in a puzzling 1-0 loss to Lone Grove on Pink Out Night at the Ada Softball Complex.
“For some reason, we scored 12 runs on this team three days ago and we couldn’t score any today,” said Ada head coach Pete Benes. “We did what we needed to do on defense. We pitched well, and we caught well. We just didn’t hit the ball as hard as we did a couple of days ago.”
|Cougars Prepare For District Opener|
Jeff Cali: I’m certainly no coach, but I felt the need to offer Ada head guy Wade Standley some friendly pointers in advance of his team’s trip to Southern Nazarene University to take on the Bethany Bronchos.|
It wasn’t exactly X’s and O’s strategy or starting lineup help. It was quite simple: Stay out of the path of black cats, steer clear of ladders and leave mirrors alone for the remainder of the season.
“You certainly look for guys to step up and to distribute the ball evenly and take what the defense gives us,” Standley said. “From a team perspective, we have to continue to move forward, continue to get better and continue to stay focused on the task at hand.”
