The Charles Page High School boys’ soccer team (8-0, 1-0) won its ninth-straight match and first district match of the season Tuesday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium. They prevailed 5-1 against their Highway 97 rivals from Sapulpa (1-5, 0-1) on Senior Night.

Senior forward Dawson Quinton scored his first goal of the season seven minutes into the match, but things slowed down from there and the Sandites only led 1-0 at the half.

 Things opened up in the second period and the home team had numerous shots on goal. Luke Jeffus got a free kick on a Chieftain handball. His first shot hit the back of a Chieftain defender and came right back to him. The second shot was deflected by the goalie, but Jack Bratcher knocked it in for the 2-0 advantage.

Gustavo Saldana deflected a shot in off the goal post and Fernando Saldana scored in the 59th minute with an assist from Kaleb Brooks. Nic Fulmer averted the shutout, receiving a corner kick from TJ Hale for the lone Chieftain goal with ten minute remaining in the match. Gustavo Saldana took a corner kick and Jeffus knocked in a header for the final goal in the 74th minute.

 The Sapulpa girls (5-1, 1-0) bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 7-0 shutout of Sand Springs (5-3, 0-1).

The visitors jumped out to a quick lead, with Kalyn Anderson scoring a header in the 8th minute. Sara Arundell scored a long shot from thirty yards out in the 10th minute, then Abby Graham scored on an assist from Addyson Hoey four minutes later.

Ali Day snagged four remarkable saves late in the first half, but Arundell notched a brace in the 24th minute to take a 4-0 lead into the locker room.

Anderson kicked her second goal of the night just five minutes into the second half, and Abby Graham got on the scoreboard in the 59th minute. Arundell made it a hat trick on a free kick with nine minutes to play. Day recorded four more saves in the second half.
