Sophomore Jaden Weiser scored the lone goal for the Sandites in an 8-1 Friday night loss at Union. 

It was a nearly perfect night for Union High School, not so much for Sand Springs.

The three-straight defending Girls' Soccer State Champions (10-2, 4-1) dealt the Sandites a 10-0 mercy rule shutout on the Redskin Senior Night. The nationally-ranked No. 3 Union boys (12-0, 5-0) continued their streak as the only undefeated team in 6A with an 8-1 victory.

It was an easy night for the Union girls' goalkeeper as Sand Springs didn’t take a single shot and only crossed into the Redskin box a couple of times.

University of Nevada, Reno-commit Payton Lieb scored at 2:25 and University of Arkansas-commit Kyler Goins scored at 11:31 for an early lead and the Lady Sandites never recovered.

The Sandite goalie blocked a shot from Lieb at 31:00, but Holli Meyer put it back less than a minute later for a 3-0 lead at the half.

Alison Day took over at goalie in the second half but things didn’t improve. Mahayla Benedict scored just 23 seconds into the second half and Lieb notched a brace at 41:27.

Day made a pair of great saves in the middle of a Redskin onslaught that sent half a dozen close shots within a foot of the net.

University of Central Arkansas-commit Morgan Hurd got in the scorebook at 50:40, Carsen Bartmess joined her at 52:05, University of Guelph-commit Haileigh Lochhead at 69:17, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M-commit Megan Knox at 76:30, and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M-commit Molly Knox at 77:34 to end the game by mercy rule.

Ruben Torres kicked off the boys' game with a goal at 5:15, followed by Alejandro Martinez at 11:15. Rogelio Jurado scored with an assist from Torres at 25:35 and Adolfo Bustos made it 4-0 with thirteen seconds left in the half. 

Torres made a brace just fourteen seconds into the second half, but Sand Springs responded and Jaden Weiser averted the shutout at 47:11. Brennan Tate got in on the action at 50:10, Jonathan Solorzano at 65:19, and Rylan Franca at 67:04.

The Lady Sandites fall to 7-4 overall and 1-3 in district action, while the boys are 4-7, 0-4. Sand Springs Soccer will host Owasso Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. The Lady Rams are 5-3, 1-2 and the boys are 6-3, 1-2.
