Coppell junior midfielder Summer Chen scores the matche’s first goal from an indirect kick in the first half. The Coppell girls soccer team defeated Hebron 3-2 on Tuesday at Buddy Echols Field.

Coming out of halftime and a tie score, Coppell sophomore forward Neerali Kapadia scored 10 minutes into the second half. Kapadia scored again 10 minutes later, establishing a lead that would endure throughout the night.

The Coppell girls soccer team defeated area No. 4 ranked Hebron, 3-2, on Tuesday at Buddy Echols Field.

The Cowgirls avenged a  3-1 loss to Hebron on Feb. 6. 

“It felt good to come back and get them this time,” Kapadia said. 

Coppell junior midfielder Summer Chen scored the first goal off an indirect kick, 13 minutes into the match. Hebron sophomore forward Jordan Hill responded, tying the game at 1-1 at the end of the first half. 

According to Coppell coach Craig Able, the Cowgirls focused on taking chances inside the box, off-ball movement, third-man runs into the attack and defensively supporting the forwards. 

Coming into the match, Coppell looked to deter Hill. Hill has scored 22 goals this season and according to Able, recently returned from a two-week training with the U16 national team.  

“We knew that she was going to be a big-time player,” Able said. “We wanted to slow her down and I think we did an okay job at that.”

The Cowgirls remain in third in District 6-6A, one point behind Hebron. The Cowgirls play at first place Flower Mound on Friday at 7:30.
