State Champs Coppell Launch 2017 Campaign with Scrimmages
Over the New Year period the defending Coppell HS boys’ varsity soccer team started the season and the defense of their state championship with scrimmages against Grand Prairie, Sam Houston, and Plano West.
Coppell started with a goalless tie with Grand Prairie, then dominated Sam Houston 5-0, and then beat a very strong Plano West team 3-0.
Coppell dominated the scrimmage against Plano West throughout. Nick Taylor opened the scoring early in the first half, Wyatt Priest added a second goal shortly afterwards, and Amit Verma completed the scoring half way through the second period.
A huge bright spot for the Cowboys was the play of the defense — they did not give up a goal through all three scrimmages and the defense promises to be one of the strengths of the team as they look to defend their state championship.
Coppell’s next action will come this weekend (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) as Coppell hosts some of the top soccer teams in the area for their annual North Texas Showcase. Their first game will be against Lewisville on Thursday, January 4, at 1pm.
