Cowgirls ousted early

By Andy Tabor

The Coppell Cowgirls dream season was ended Thursday night in Allen.  The team was defeated by the Plano Wildcats 1-0.  The Cowgirls had many opportunities but eventually left a whopping 11 runners on base.

The Cowgirls were ranked number one in the area and number nine in the nation were unable to convert during the game.  In the fourth inning, the team left the bases loaded, possible foreshadowing for their unfortunate impending loss.

Plano scored their only run on a past ball in the first inning.  Both team’s pitchers gave up five hits in the game.  The Cowgirls will finish this year with a very impressive (30-3) record, although they were looking to greatly improve that mark during the postseason.

Coppell players were not able to be reached today for immediate reaction to the disappointing loss. Check Coppell Student Media back next week for a full softball season wrap, along with comments from the Plano game Thursday.
