Coppell Boys Soccer Dominates Skyline & Richardson

This past Friday night, the 6A state champion Coppell Cowboys (9-1-1) hosted Skyline in a 6A Regional showdown.  Skyline has earned a reputation of being a difficult team to beat. This season they have challenged all their opponents with close games.  However, the expected difficult test never materialized as early goals by Nick Taylor, Wyatt Priest, and Moe Saif gave Coppell a commanding 3-0 lead over Skyline. With an outstanding strike from the edge of the penalty area, Nick Taylor added a fourth goal before half time. 
Shortly after half-time, Skyline managed to pull a goal back from Coppell. Later in the game, a goal by Jacob Vasquez restored the four goal difference and Coppell comfortably played out the rest of the game. The final score was 5-1.
For his two goals and his always threatening behavior when in possession of the ball, Nick Taylor was named player of the game.

On Tuesday Night the state champion Coppell Cowboys soccer team traveled to Richardson for what had the potential to become a trap game.  To their credit, Coppell maintained their focus and dominated the district showdown game from the start.
Wyatt Priest opened the scoring for Coppell in the third minute of the game and Nick Taylor doubled the lead midway through the first half.  Second half goals from Nick Taylor, Wyatt Priest and two from Jacob Thurman rounded out the scoring for Coppell.  The lone goal for Richardson came from a second half penalty kick.  The final score was a comfortable 6-1.
With this win Coppell extended their winning streak to 6 games. Jacob Thurman had his best ever game for the Cowboys and was named player of the game for his outstanding play and two well taken goals.
Coppell hosts Jesuit this Friday in a top of the table clash with the winner of the game likely to become the district champion. Kick-off is at 7:30 pm.

Wins over WT White and Berkner puts Coppell Soccer in 1st Place
In a hard fought district game this past Friday, the Coppell Boys Varsity Soccer Team worked tirelessly to overcome a spirited WT White team. Although Coppell enjoyed much of the possession, they struggled to find a way past a well-organized WT White defense.
In the first half, Coppell consistently looked the more dangerous of the two teams. But Coppell was unable to turn their pressure into any telling chances and went into the break 0-0.
Early in the second half, Coppell’s pressure finally paid off when Jacob Capdevila was on hand to finish a chance created by a Nick Taylor run and cross. The Cowboys continued to have the better of the game through most of the second half, but they were unable to turn their pressure and possession into goals. As time wore on WT White stepped up their game and started to create their own chances. With five minutes left to play, WT White broke through the Coppell defense and stole a late goal that leveled the game.
Coppell was not finished though; a long throw-in from Jordan Pemberton caused havoc in the WT White penalty area forcing a hand ball by a defender which resulted in a Coppell penalty kick. Alex Haas made no mistake on the PK and Coppell escaped a difficult road test with a 2-1 win.
For his consistently strong performance in the forward position, Nick Taylor was awarded Player of the Game.
On Tuesday night the team beat Berkner 4-0 which elevated Coppell to first place in the district standings.
Four minutes into the game Nick Taylor gave Coppell the lead after a powerful run and strike from 20 yards. Two minutes later, Bennett Hunter scored to double Coppell’s lead. From that point forward Coppell dominated the game. Shortly before the half time break, Coppell further extended their lead when Bennett Hunter scored his second goal of the game.
Early in the second half Bishesh Manandhar scored the goal of the night. His electrifying volley from outside the penalty box rocketed into the top of the net giving the keeper no chance to stop it. Coppell continued to dominate the game, but was unable to add to their lead.
For his two goals and intelligent play at midfield, Bennett Hunter was named Player of the Game.
