  • Augusta's girls soccer coach Monty Rowland said the Orioles were still tired from their overtime game against Circle Thursday night when they played Winfield Friday in a rain makeup match.
    Winfield held the Orioles scoreless for a 4-0 win.
    "That team works the ball really well," Rowland said of Winfield.
    Augusta, which has been shorthanded for a few games now, played its third match in four days.
    "We played drained," Rowland said.
    Thursday at home, the Orioles played a back-and-forth contest with the Thunderbirds before Circle scored with less than 15 minutes left to take a 1-0 lead.
    Minutes later, though, Shelby Clay broke loose for a goal to tie the game and lift the Orioles' spirits.
    Circle got the last laugh. The Thunderbirds controlled the ball in the middle of Augusta's box in between the defense and got off a shot through traffic that found the back left side of the net for the 2-1 win.
    It was the third overtime match already for Augusta this season, all losses.
    The Orioles got their first win of the season this past Tuesday at Wichita Independent 3-1. They'll go for their second win Tuesday when they travel to take on Buhler.
