MADILL — As the sun was setting Blake Smiley Field on Tuesday night, a thick fog wall rolled across the field.

For the Madill Wildcats, it was one of the two walls they had to face in their 4-0 loss to the Durant Lions, with the other coming in the form of a stout defense. 

“It was not so much our offense, our offense was working,” Madill coach Jose Cortes said. 

“It was really their keeper, their keeper saved them. Their (the offense) pressure was good on the attack, but we made four mistakes on defense and we paid for it.”

Forwards Diego Ibarra, Raul Piente and midfielder Dawson Hoedebeck pressured the offensive third for the majority of the first half for the Wildcats, taking 11 shots and putting five on goal.

On defense, the Lions broke through the back line of the Wildcats in the 27th minute when Bryson Lyday broke free for his first goal of the game.

Lyday would tack on his second goal of the first half just nine minutes later to give his team a 2-0 lead at half time.

Goalie Ulyses Camacho had five saves in the first half for the Wildcats on seven shots.

The Wildcats defense came out of the halftime break strong, as defenders Mateo Fajardo, Josue Segura and Edgar Perfecto did not allow the ball to cross midfield until half way through the second half.

Unfortunately for the Wildcats, Lyday found a way to break free for two more goals late to seal the 4-0  victory.

The Wildcats will be back in action Friday at 7:30 p.m. against Guymon in Chickasha.
