LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -A few of the Lawton Soccer Club's teams are celebrating after winning a state-wide tournament in Oklahoma City.

The following teams won their division last weekend at the Turkey Shootout Tournament. The
Thundercats, Elgin Owls, HAH Wolves, Lawton Elgin Lightning and ECL United all took home a championship trophy.

Twice a week, many Lawton Soccer Club teams come out to practice, work hard and get better. They all have the same goal in mind...winning every tournament they play, just like they did in the Turkey Shootout.

"I was very happy," said
Tayson Wilson, one of the soccer players. "Everyone was just screaming and the other team was kind of upset and I was like yay we're going to the top."

"It was a pretty cool experience," said Reagan Brandenburg, one of the soccer players. "It doesn't happen very often. To just play good games and come out on top feels pretty good."

Tayson Wilson and Reagan Brandenburg teams were among those who took home a trophy. Wilson says he loves soccer because it's something he learned from his family.

"Because my uncles played it and I just like playing the game," said Wilson. "It's a contact sport. You get to pass the ball around. You get to kick the ball. It's just a fun sport to play."

Brandenburg plays mostly midfield. She says winning this championship motivated her to keep working hard because it pays off.

"We practice," said
Brandenburg. "We have to continue. We can't just take breaks and not continue practicing. We have to play as hard as we can. We can't lack. We can't mess around because we are not getting any better when we do that."

Her little sister also plays the sport and scored the game winning goal in her team's first game.

"It was really fun and exciting," said Reese Brandenburg.

Reese says her sister has been a huge help in motivating and challenging her to get better. She says they both have dreams of one day playing in college.

"I hope to go to OSU and Succeed in Soccer," said Reese Brandenburg.
