Lady Cougar Soccer

Ada senior goalkeeper Fisher Fulton did her best impersonation of Supergirl during a Class 4A playoff matchup against Weatherford Tuesday night at the Ada High soccer field.


Fulton made one incredible save after another in the first round contest for 55 grueling minutes.


However, Weatherford finally got a ball past Fisher when Alexa Harvey scored off a nice assist from Brooklyn Hicks with 6:33 left in the second half of a 20-minute overtime session to give the Eagles a 1-0 victory.


Ada ended one of the most successful soccer seasons in school history — which included a District 4A-1 championship and an eight-game winning streak heading into the postseason — at 10-4. Weatherford advances to the Class 4A quarterfinals at 13-4.


“We had a bunch of girls that gave everything they possible had. They scrapped to the end with great leadership. It just didn’t fall our way this time,” said Ada High head coach Cole Jones. “Weatherford has a really good team. It could have gone either way.” 


Fulton had 22 unofficial saves in the contest, including a diving stop of a penalty kick with 4:17 to play in the first 10-minute half of overtime. 


Weatherford senior Kennidie Helton nearly won it with an emptynet shot from pointblank range with 1:18 left in regulation, but the ball clanged off the top of the goalpost. 


Fulton denied 10 shots in the first half, 10 more in the second half and two in overtime. Those included a number of free kicks, mostly by powerful striker Jayden Quintero of Weatherford. 


Fulton definitely looked like the Girl of Steel. 


“Fisher Fulton had an amazing game. She kept us in it. She had some amazing saves. It was one of the best games of her career by far,” Jones said of the Ada All-Stater. 


Even the head official and Weatherford head coach Carlos Lopez sang the praises of the Ada goalie. 


“Fisher is one of the best keepers in 4A for sure. She made the game tough for us because of the way she plays. She’s outstanding,” Lopez said. 


“She’s really good. If you take her out, Weatherford probably wins six or seven to nothing,” the official said. 


One of Fulton’s best saves came on the penalty kick by Mckenna Watson in the overtime period. Watson tried to blast the ball past Fulton to her left, but she would have none of it. 


Ada nearly won it when Ada’s other All-State senior, Cassidy Walsh, had a shot go off the bar early in the contest. 


“We had that one go off the post in the first few minutes of the game. A goal at that point could have changed the whole game,” Jones said. 


The Lady Cougars had another golden opportunity to score in the first half, but forward Rumor LeJeune missed from close range at the 26:15 mark. 


Ada will lose five seniors — Fulton, Walsh, Kate Pottebaum, Devon Brown and Mercedes LaFleur. 


“Our seniors really stepped up all year long. They put a lot of time and energy into the game. I couldn’t be more proud of these kids,” Jones said. 


The Ada coach said his seniors made the 2016 season a memorable one. “They’ve done something special this year. They put a lot of time and energy in, and it paid off. I wish it could have paid off a little bit different tonight for them,” he said. 


“There’s not words that can express how proud I am of this team and what they’ve done for Ada soccer. It’s been a great ride this year.”
