FARMERS BRANCH — Talk about a quick start.

Starting so fast they almost ran out of their skates, the Cowboys torched Southlake Carroll on Thursday night for their seventh straight win, taking the victory by a final score of 11-1.

In the first period, Coppell piled on goal after goal, at one point scoring four goals in a span of 2:36. The offense remained on the attack for the entirety of the period, while the defense allowed only one shorthanded goal on a nice play from the Carroll attack.

“For us, if we just get the wheels going, it sets the momentum for the game, and it allows us to capitalize on opportunities,” senior forward Ryan Scheetz said. “It gets the whole team pumped up, and it allows us to score more.”

In the second and third periods, the Cowboys took their foot off the gas pedal, focusing on puck control and only taking good shots. Several penalties derailed the offense, but the Coppell defense held strong even when down a man, outshooting Carroll 26-15 in the game.

“Sometimes [this season] we’ve come out a little sluggish,” Coppell coach Cosmo Clarke said. “The key for us is to keep it simple, and then building on the momentum. Once you do that, everyone gets the puck touches and gets more opportunities. We were able to do that tonight.”

Coppell’s next matchup is with Jesuit on Dec. 1 at the Dr Pepper StarCenter in Richardson. After the win Thursday, the Cowboys will look to ride their hot scoring streak against a team they lost too earlier in the year.

“It’s a team building thing,” Clarke said. “The guys were having fun tonight. Yeah, the score was lopsided, but it helps with team chemistry, getting the support from each other, even right down until the end.”
