Cowgirls shoot and miss in tight 4-3 loss against Flower Mound

“When I say Cowgirls, you say fight!” A young girl chanted in the stands as the Coppell girls soccer team faced Flower Mound on Friday for youth night at Buddy Echols Field. 

Flower Mound won, 4-3, over the Cowgirls.

Coming into the match, the Cowgirls knew they would have to play well against Flower Mound, a current top five team in the state.

“We knew it was going to be a tough battle,” Coppell coach Craig Able said. “We knew that they were physically strong, and we knew it was going to be a tough game.”

The Cowgirls trailed the Jaguars, with the teams spending majority of the game head to head. Scoring one goal after the next. The energy in the crowd became tense as Coppell fell behind in the second half after a goal from Flower Mound junior Lucy Stenning brought the score to 3-1.

With 28 minutes left in the game, Coppell answered with a goal from sophomore midfielder Rachel Mathew. In the final minutes of the match, Coppell scored its third goal in an effort to tie the game, but in the final minutes of the game Flower Mound struck back with a final goal from Ally Pinto.

“All three goals were really nice goals. We worked a lot on set pieces and corners this week, so being able to create goals, scoring opportunities off that was really nice. I’m proud of the girls for that,” Able said.

Although they lost the match, Coppell finished strong and had good control over the field.

“I felt like we had a good shot and we played really hard,” freshman midfielder Emeline Holder said. “We were together every step of the way and we competed the entire time.”
