The hard fought game ended in double overtime with a goal by Junior Alyssa D. and a score of 1-0, placing them in the state championship game.
Coppell went head-to-head with Conroe The Woodlands Saturday, April 11, the team with a record 24 shutouts. The Cowgirls took a 1-0 lead into half-time, followed by a second half of back-and-forth scoring. With 6 minutes remaining in the game, Coppell reclaimed the lead and finished the game with a 3-2 victory.
“This team was special because it wasn't about individual glory; it was about playing hard for each other and the name on the front of the jersey. They grew as a team, improved every game, and met every challenge,” said Head Coach Chris Stricker.
The Cowgirls finished the season as the District, Regional, and 5A State Champs.
