NEWCASTLE – The Ada High School girls and boys soccer teams each dropped 2-1 decisions at Newcastle Thursday night to open district play.
In the girls game, Sadie Criswell tallied the lone Lady Cougar goal.
“We didn’t play our best soccer, but we gave a lot of effort,” said Ada head coach Cole Jones.
In the boys contest, Daniel Gutierrez tallied the only Cougar goal with about four minutes to go.
“Even though I felt like we dominated time of possession the entire game, we let two goals sneak into the net,” Jones said. “We had plenty of opportunities to score but kept missing the goal.”
The Cougars are 5-4 overall and start off 0-1 in District 4A-1.
“We are going to head to practice and fix some things before we head to McAlester on Tuesday night,” said Jones.
