Friday night’s match against Lake Highlands  proved to be a success for the Coppell girls soccer team as it took home a 3-0 win.

 

After Tuesday’s one goal loss against J.J. Pearce, the Cowgirls redeemed themselves.

 

“This game was about a response,” Coppell coach Ryan Dunlevy said. “We dropped one on Tuesday that we shouldn’t have let happen. Tonight was about responding and they did that, they worked on the little things and improved.”

 

Within the first 25 minutes, the Cowgirls were leading. The first goal was scored by junior forward Rebecca Watley, who drove the ball down the left side of the field and scored in the top right corner.

 

At the 60th minute, freshman midfielder Maya Ozymy increased the lead by scoring the second goal.

 

Lastly, at the 83rd minute junior forward Micayla Weathers scored the third goal of the night 25 yards out of the goal.

 

The game got intense as it progressed with a yellow card and a couple of fouls by the end of the game.

 

Communication was the key to Coppell’s win. The defense was able to place the balls in open spaces at the correct moment and the offense was able to receive and make the plays to score.

 

“We connected a lot more passes instead of just kicking it and connected as a team more than we did last game for sure,” Weathers said. “I think there was a lot of encouragement throughout the field that lifted the team up.”

 

The Cowgirls play at W.T. White tomorrow at 5 p.m.
