Coppell High School freshman Nicole Henry dodges two oncoming Richland defenders during the second half of Friday night’s game. The Coppell Cowgirls defeated the Richland Rebels with a final score of 8-0 at Buddy Echols Field.

With 29:45 left in the second half, the Rebels attempted to steal the ball from junior Sarah Houchin, but did not prevail as Houchin dodged the attack and continued down the field, scoring the Cowgirls’ seventh goal with astonishing speed. As the number of goals increased, so did the Cowgirls’ spirit and intensity. Right after a corner kick from senior Emma Jett, senior Maddie Speanburg fires the final shot of the night, earning the Cowgirls’ eighth goal of the game.

The constant high defensive pressure and intense offensive plays from the Cowgirls proved to be too much for Richland to handle as they did not get a single ball into the goal.

“We played really well and we finished a lot of opportunities, which is a good, positive thing for us. Some of the things we really struggled with in the past seemed to improve today. We set our minds to our goals and we executed,” Coppell coach Ryan Dunlevy said.

Even though the Cowgirls did not let in a single shot from the Rebels, there is always room for improvement.

“In the midfield, we especially need to clean up our touches a little bit,” Dunlevy said. “Keeping a focused mind is a growing thing, and the girls did a great job with staying focused on the things we needed to work on. They continue to get better even though the score got a little high.”

“We communicated really well as a team, and with that communication we were able to switch the point of attack a lot more. Also, we were able to score a lot more goals and call people off,” junior Baylee Hux said. “Even when you get so far ahead, you have got to think it’s still 0-0, and I think that’s what we did the entire game. We all kept thinking that we have got to play with everything we have.”
