Soccer: Hale edges Pryor in shootout

PRYOR, OK — Pryor’s postseason hopes all but ended Tuesday with a 5-4 shootout loss to Nathan Hale at Tiger Stadium.

The two teams were tied at 1 after 80 minutes of regulation and two overtimes, forcing a shootout.

Shelby Craig, who scored the game-tying goal for the Tigers (5-6, 1-4 District 5A-3) in regulation, was blocked by the Hale goalkeeper in the shootout and Jesus Rios-Mata scored the game-winner past Pryor keeper Ryan Ogg.

Pryor took a 1-0 lead in the shootout after Logan Smith netted Pryor’s first attempt and Hale’s Cristhian Becerra knocked his shot wide.

The Rangers evened the score on the next attempt, as Colten Smith’s kick went over the goal and Eric Perez tied it for Hale.

Corey Horton and Taylor Kegley easily netted their shots for Pryor, sandwiched around a Jose DeHoyos goal for Hale.

Daniel Avelar’s shot appeared to be saved by Ogg to give Pryor a 3-2 edge and bring up Quint Ramsey for a potential game-winner. However, a referee ruled that Ogg came off the goal line early and awarded Avelar a second kick, which Avelar converted to keep the Rangers alive.

Ramsey and Royce Harper traded goals to split the first shootout at 4-4, bringing up Craig and Rios-Mata.

The Pryor girls won by forfeit to move to 7-4 and 3-2 in District 5A-3.
