Coppell falls short in a tight 1-0 match against Marcus

With just 10 minutes remaining in the first half, the crowd was electric as Flower Mound Marcus senior forward Gage Wiley struck the ball towards Coppell’s goal, with Coppell junior goalkeeper Jacob Campbell poised to make the save. 

But in a heart-stopping moment, the ball slipped past Campbell’s arms and found the back of the net, sparking celebrations among the Marcus players and fans.

The chilly Friday night at Buddy Echols Field saw a fiercely contested match between Marcus and Coppell, culminating in a 1-0 victory for the Marauders. This was the second time the two teams had met, and this loss evened the score with their last encounter, in which Coppell emerged victorious, 6-0. This defeat results in Coppell falling to fourth in District 6 6A.  

 Despite having possession of the ball and earning multiple free kicks and corner kicks throughout the match, Coppell was unable to convert these opportunities into goals. The team’s offensive strategy of relying on short passes, rather than breaking lines and making accurate passes, prevented it from turning its possession into scores.

“We had the chances to make a difference in the game but we just couldn’t finish those,” Coppell senior defender Matthew Saucedo said. “We just need to capitalize more on those opportunities.” 

Coppell showed great resilience and determination but ultimately came up short against a strong Marcus side. Coppell was unable to find the breakthrough it needed and suffered a disappointing loss. 

“We got to defend better and not concede those goals,” Coppell coach Stephen Morris said.  “We got to provide teams less opportunities and chances to score.”

On a chilly Friday night at Buddy Echols Field, the Coppell boys soccer team tied with Plano West, 1-1, bringing its district record to 2-1-5 with six matches remaining in District 6-6A.

The first half of the game involved mostly back and forth of the ball. Plano West junior midfielder Eli Krengel was able to score with six minutes remaining, ending the first half with the Wolves leading 1-0.

Coppell’s defense played strong this match as many of Plano West’s attempts to score were thwarted. 

“We went into a three-back set and so the third back, [senior defender Ari Robicheaux], [junior defender Chaz Null] and [senior defender Matthew Saucedo] were key for us,” Coppell coach Stephen Morris said. “The fact that they were able to step in and just be able to send all that stuff back forward was huge for us. It allowed our other attacking players to get down there and we could attack and attack and attack.”

During halftime, Morris made some personnel changes, which were taken well as Coppell junior midfielder Sam Stone was able to score seven minutes into the second half, tying the score 1-1.

“The first half was a little slow and an unlucky goal,” Saucedo said. “We definitely stepped up in the second half and scored the goal. Honestly, we could’ve put in some more chances but, overall, it was a good game to show what we can do. If we want to start winning these close-fighting games, we need to work on finishing. We’ve had chances in front of the goal and it’s just a difference of putting it in the right spot.”

Friday’s match was also Senior Night. All the seniors on the team were honored and appreciated for their dedication to the sport and their commitment to the team right before kickoff commenced.

“Even when they were down in the first half, they never put their heads down once they got behind,” Morris said. “Our guys keep grinding and they believe in each other and what they’re doing so that was a definite positive we can take from tonight.”

The Cowboys play at Lewisville on Tuesday with kickoff at 7:30 p.m.

After a 2-2 tie against Plano on Monday, the Coppell boys soccer team hosts  Plano West at 7 p.m. Friday at Buddy Echols Field.

Coppell’s past matches, against Plano, Flower Mound, Hebron and Plano East, have ended in ties. Coppell coach Stephen Morris hopes to solidify his team’s defense.

“We’ve been able to score goals but we’re giving up too many goals.” Morris said. “Obviously, we’re trying not to give up goals and, hopefully, we can come out on top.”

Morris pointed out many players to look out for during the match, but he thinks the team does not rely on any specific players to score goals. 

“We’re a pretty balanced team,” Morris said. “We’ve been able to score goals and our goals are coming from different players contributing because of the style of soccer we play. It is truly a team effort.”

This match is also special as it is Senior Night, a way to celebrate the seniors on the team. 

“It’s very special. We’re going to honor our seniors and they’re all going to play in the game,” Morris said. “We’re going to show that we can win with anyone on the field because that’s what we’re going to do.”
