OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — In a thrilling display of athleticism and determination, the Classen SAS@NE Lady Comets triumphed over Cordell High School in a gripping girls' varsity soccer match at Moses F. Miller Stadium on Monday evening.

From the first whistle, it was evident that the Lady Comets were on a mission. They wasted no time launching their attack, netting two quick goals within the opening five minutes of play. Freshman Forward Avery Fisher struck first with a precise 15-yard shot, swiftly followed by Sophomore Forward Carol Peralta, who capitalized on an assist from Sophomore Center Midfielder Yoselin Santos with another 15-yard strike.

However, the game took a dramatic turn as Cordell rallied, capitalizing on the Lady Comets' momentary lapse in intensity. Cordell managed to level the score at 2-2 just before halftime, stunning the Lady Comets and setting the stage for a tense second half.

Despite Cordell's spirited performance, the Lady Comets regrouped and returned to the field with renewed focus. It was Peralta who once again proved instrumental, seizing an opportunity and firing a crucial go-ahead goal from 25 yards out, securing her brace for the day and sealing the Lady Comets' victory.

Reflecting on the hard-fought win, Head Coach Chris Germann emphasized the importance of the lesson learned by his young team. "Sometimes you win with beauty, sometimes a win is ugly," Germann remarked. "But at the end of the day, this game is marked as a W in district play and won’t haunt us in our playoff push."

Senior Defender Ariel Sosa, named Metro-Tech Player of the Game, praised her team's progress, highlighting the improvement in passing combinations and communication. "This team has come a long way," Sosa said. "Winning this type of game has motivated me to work toward going all the way. We want more."

Junior Defender Chalyse Green echoed Sosa's sentiments, acknowledging the team's strong start and emphasizing the importance of teamwork. "I knew I could always count on Carol as a passing option," Green said. "I am just very happy that she was able to score the go-ahead goal and to walk away with the win."

Freshman Center Midfielder Emma Magnuson lauded the team's chemistry and cohesion, noting the seamless rotation of positions and improved communication. "For the first time this season, it felt like we were playing as a team with zero confusion," Magnuson said.

With this hard-earned victory under their belts, the Lady Comets now turn their attention to their next challenge: a matchup against Mount Saint Mary High School on March 28 at 1:00 pm, located at Mount Saint Mary High School. As they continue their journey, the Lady Comets remain steadfast in their pursuit of success on the soccer field.
