MUSKOGEE — The scoring drought continues for the Miami boys’ soccer team.

The Wardogs were blanked 2-0 by Hilldale here Friday, March 9.

They’ve got three consecutive matches without a goal.

The only ones they’ve had came in a 1-0 shootout loss to Wagoner in the season opener.

Miami’s girls suffered a 7-0 loss to Hilldale in Friday’s opener.

“We had some chances,” Miami coach David Douthit said. “One of their goals was a PK, which I thought was questionable. We played well again. We’ve just gotta get the ball in the net.”

He was pleased with the defensive effort.

The Wardogs’ three opponents — Wagoner, Rejoice Christian and Hilldale — have combined for only five goals over the three games.

Rejoice claimed a 2-0 victory on March 6.

Douthit said he wasn’t going to make any wholesale changes.

“We’re just going to work on some things Monday,” he said. “We’ve just got to get more guys forward and start making better runs.”

Hilldale led 1-0 at the half.

Girls: Hilldale 7, Miami 0

The Lady Wardogs (1-2) gave up three quick goals and were unable to recover.

“We came out flat,” Miami coach Kenton Adams said. “We had a few injuries and were missing a player or two. We’re hoping to be back full strength by Tuesday for our first district game.

Hilldale led 5-0 at intermission.

“We played a lot better in the second half, but still not up to standards that we set for ourselves.”


Miami heads into District 4A-8 play Tuesday, March 13, traveling to Tulsa Webster. Then on Thursday, March 15 it hosts Ponca City.
