MADILL — With the summer months just around the corner, yellow jacket wasps will be terrorizing backyard barbecues all seasons.

MADILL — With the summer months just around the corner, yellow jacket wasps will be terrorizing backyard barbecues all seasons.

In Madill however Thursday night the only sting being felt was the Wildcats offense. 

Francisco Perez netted a pair of goals in his playoff debut, as the Wildcats brushed aside Kingfisher by a score of 3-1 at Blake Smiley Stadium, in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs.

Madill will now advance to play either Bethany or Cache Tuesday night in the second round at home. 

“What I think about is that I have him on my team for the next three years,” Madill coach Jose Cortes said. 

“I don’t have to find a top scorer for the next three years now.”

The Wildcats got the scoreboard early  just seven minutes into the game Perez chipped over goalie Jose Martinez for the early 1-0 lead.

On Offense, the Wildcats forwards Isaac Martinez, Perez and Diego Ibarra terrorized the Yellow jacket defense with through balls and deep passes. 

The Wildcats combined for 15 shots in the first half, with eight on goal.

The score was increased to 2-0 on Perez’s second goal of the game on an assist by Saul Salinas with 30 minutes remaining in the first half, which would end with the Wildcats holding a firm 2-0 advantage.

Two minutes into the second half, the Yellowjackets would cut the lead after Omar Casillas was fouled in the box and converted the penalty kick just sneaking it past Ulyses Camacho. 

Camacho finished with six saves on the day on seven shots on goal.

The game was sealed four minutes later when  a corner kick by Martinez went straight to E.J. Holiday who snuck it past the keeper on a header.

“This team is something very special,” Cortes said. “If play like this, correcting some mistakes, we can go as far as state.”
