The last time Western Heights posted an unbeaten season in boys' soccer was 1994.

That year the Jets reached the state championship game before losing. This year's squad hopes to be one game better.

Western Heights is 12-0 this season and will host Guymon in a first-round playoff game Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Western Heights has been led by seniors Cesar Zepada and Robert Owuso, who has provided between 70 and 80 percent of the team's goals, said Jets coach Zenati Alzenati.

“Those are the ones we go to (for scoring),” he said.

The Jets finished 10-4 last season before losing a 2-1 semifinals contest to Carl Albert. They had defeated Northwest Classen, which won the state title last year, 6-2 in the regular season.

With eight starters back, Alzenati knew this years' Jets had the potential to be very good.

“We have a lot of experience, seven or eight seniors,” he said. “We set high expectations and rightfully so because I believe we have good players.

“We've been fortunate to go 12-0 and hopefully we will continue on that path.”
