Dylan Colon Dodges to space.

Coppell Boys Lacrosse opened their regular season on Saturday against the visiting Kingwood Mustangs, who travelled up to the Metroplex from Houston. The Cowboys were facing a tough opponent, as Kingwood was the number two seed in the South District Super Regional Division 1 Playoffs last year, and they feature 19 Seniors on this year's Varsity squad. Both teams started a bit slowly on offense, with Coppell leading 3-1 after the first quarter. The scoring picked up in the 2nd quarter, as Coppell lengthened their lead to 7-3 by halftime, but things really opened up in the second half, featuring 23 more goals, and a total of 33 goals scored in the game.


Coppell first scored on a dodge and feed by Senior Max Lamendola to fellow Senior Peyton Barron, and Junior Dylan Colon added an unassisted goal a few minutes later to build a 2-0 lead. Kingwood scored its first goal on what would become a trend in the game, by capitalizing after a Coppell penalty to score a man-up goal. Coppell added a goal with just 12 seconds left in the quarter when Dylan Colon found Senior Leo Swaldi for his first of four goals in the game.


Colon started an effective scoring combination on the day by finding Junior Tyler Wendel for a goal. These two would connect a total of four times in the game for Coppell goals. Junior Gavin Osteen would then score an unassisted goal for the first of his four goals in the game. Close defender Colton Delk would get in the act in the third quarter by grabbing a loose ball and scoring an unassisted goal to give Coppell a 11-5 lead.


Colon would finish the day with a team leading eight points, including six assists, and Lamendola would tally 2 goals and 3 assists, to go with 6 groundballs, 2 forced turnovers, and winning 7 of 13 faceoffs. Tyler Wendel added 3 goals and an assist to go with 4 ground balls and 1 forced turnover. Junior Andrew Sullivan added 1 goal and 1 assist in the game.


On defense, the Cowboys were led by Senior goalie Hayden MacArthur who was one stop short of 20 saves on the game, for a 60% save percentage, and tallied 7 groundballs and 3 forced turnovers. Junior Colton Delk was all over the field, adding 3 ground balls and 4 forced turnovers to go along with one goal. Senior Davis Dodd was also active all game, grabbing 3 groundballs, 1 forced turnover, with an assist.


Coppell was able to outscore Kingwood in every quarter on their way to a final score of 20-13, and a season opening win. Next up for the Cowboys is McKinney, who will come to Coppell next Wednesday night for a 7:30 PM start time at Coppell Middle School North. Please come out and cheer on the Cowboys as they look to stay undefeated on the season.

Coppell Boys JV Lacrosse team opened their season at home against visiting Kingwood JV this past Saturday at Coppell Middle School North Stadium. The Coppell JV unit has a new look this season with 19 new players joining the squad for the 2020 season.


The game was tight from the beginning as offensive possessions and shots on goal came at a premium. Both defenses were aggressive from the start and limited quality looks on cage throughout the game. Coppell became the first team to score when Freshman Spencer Kutchins found Sophomore Alex Haydek for a goal with just 1:04 remaining in the quarter, to give Coppell a 1-0 lead at the end of the first frame.


The strong defense continued for Coppell, as they held Kingwood scoreless through the first half of the game. Sophomore LSM Harry Hook was active on both ends of the field, grabbing 5 groundballs and forcing 2 turnovers, to go along with several foot clears. Close defenders Jonah Popp, Sophomore (1 GB and 3 forced turnovers), and Blake Robbins, Freshman (2 GB, 2 forced turnovers), were also strong on the defensive end. Junior Graham Wharton added an unassisted goal midway through the 2nd quarter to give Coppell a 2-0 lead at the half.


Kingwood finally got on the scoreboard in the third quarter, as they were able to double their attempted shots from the first half to the second half. They scored again midway through the 4th quarter to tie the game up at 2-2 with 7:35 remaining in the game.


Sophomore middie Nick Rogers continued a dominant day at the faceoff stripe, winning 7 of 8 draws with 4 ground balls, giving Coppell key extra possessions throughout the game. Freshman goalie Blu Carter was strong in net all game long, making 6 saves (75% save percentage) to go along with 2 GBs.


With less than one minute remaining, Coppell called a time out to set up for a final shot. Sophomore Alex Haydek was able to dodge to open space and get off a game winning goal with just 14 seconds remaining in the game, for an exciting 3-2 win. The Cowboys will be back on the field for their next game this Wednesday night at Coppell MS North Stadium, when they take on McKinney JV at 6 PM.

The Coppell Boys Varsity and Junior Varsity lacrosse teams wrapped up their seasons earlier this month. The Varsity team finished the year by going 8-5 in the regular season and advancing to the first round of the North District Playoffs, where they lost to Highland Park, the eventual State Champion Runner-up. It was a strong bounce back year for the Cowboys after missing the playoffs last year, and they were led by strong contributions from each of the six seniors that will be moving on to college next year. Congratulations to Cowboys Head Coach Matt Mueller, who was voted by his peers as the THSLL North District Coach of the Year in his first season leading the Coppell program.

Coppell Boys Varsity Lacrosse travelled to Austin over the last weekend to play a pair of teams from the Division 1 Central Region. This trip would also see the Cowboys pitted against the top-ranked team in Texas for the second straight week, as they lost a close 1-goal battle last week to Jesuit Dallas and would take on the new #1 ranked team in the state, Westlake, on this trip.


First up for the Cowboys was their match with Westlake, who entered this game with a 10-1 overall record on the season and wins over top-10 ranked programs in Rockwall, St. Marks, The Woodlands, and Highland Park, with their only loss coming against #2 ranked ESD.


Coppell started out slowly on offense as they worked to solve the Westlake zone defense. Westlake struck first on the scoreboard when they scored on a fast break and finish by Junior Duncan Brayden, who would score 3 goals on the day. After Westlake added a second goal, Coppell scored on a steal and unassisted goal by Sophomore Tyler Wendel, which finished the 1st quarter scoring with Westlake leading 2-1. Westlake would continue to possess the ball throughout the 2nd quarter, adding 2 more unassisted goals and finishing the first half with a 4-1 lead.


Coppell was able to win the time of possession in the 3rd quarter, as they held the ball longer and were able to increase their shots on goal, but could not break through with any goals. The only goal of the 3rd quarter was scored by Westlake at about the 10-minute mark, making the score 5-1 entering the final quarter.


The Coppell offense was never able to get going in the game, and the 29-20 advantage for Westlake in shots attempted was too much for the Cowboys to overcome. Westlake added a couple of late goals as Coppell was forced to chase and double team the ball as Westlake stalled out the final minutes of the game, resulting in a 7-1 final score. 


The Coppell defense was successful in slowing down the high-powered Westlake offense, keeping their scoring down to just 7 goals, well below Westlake’s season average of almost 13 goals per game, and only the third time all year the Chaparrals failed to score at least 10 goals. Junior goalie Hayden MacArthur posted one of his two 10-save games for the weekend,and added 6 groundballs and 3 forced turnovers. Sophomore Remi Reynolds had 4 groundballs and 2 forced turnovers, while Senior Ethan Bivens and Junior Reid Robbins added 3 ground balls each.


The Cowboys would have to quickly recover and regroup, as they were set to take on Vandergrift High School the following day. The offense would again be facing another zone defense right out of the gate, but this time they would find much more success, and would find it early. Junior Leo Swaldi opened the scoring for the Cowboys just 86 seconds into the game on an unassisted goal and would go on to have his biggest offensive output of the season, scoring a total of 5 goals and 1 assist on the day. Coppell was able to limit the length and effectiveness of Vandergrift’s possessions throughout the first half and would go on to score 4 goals in the first frame and 3 more in the second frame, to take a 7-2 lead into halftime. Junior Max Lamendola would score 2 goals and add an assist in the half.


The scoring and tight defense would continue through the 3rd quarter, as Coppell added 4 more goals and shut out the Vandergrift offense, taking a commanding 11-2 lead into the final quarter. Senior Walker Cain would have 1 goal and 2 assists in the game, Junior Gavin Osteen would score a goal and an assist, and Senior Brandon Point would add 2 assists on the day.


Coppell was able to work deep into their roster in the fourth quarter, and came away with the win and a final score of 11-4. The results of the trip would move Coppell’s record for the season to 6-3, with all three of those losses coming to top-10 ranked teams in the state. Things do not get any easier for the Cowboys this week as they return to the Dallas area for another road game, this time against 2nd ranked ESD. Please travel across town to ESD support the Cowboys this Friday at 7:30 PM, for another battle of Top-10 ranked Texas teams.

The Coppell JV Lacrosse team was back in action this week as they took on their first varsity opponent of the year in Denton Lacrosse this past Tuesday night at Lesley Field here in Coppell. In what would turn out to be an up-and-down game for both teams, it almost seemed to be four different games that took a sharp turn in outcomes each time the horn sounded to end the quarters.


Denton came out of the gate strong, scoring a goal in the first 12 seconds off of a face off win and fast break. They continued with their strong play throughout the entire first quarter, dominating the time of possession over the Cowboys, and drawing three straight penalties on Coppell. This helped fuel Denton to a 4-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.


As the 2nd quarter started, so did the Cowboy offense, as Freshman Alex Haydek dodged down the alley to score his first goal of the game. This would start a seven-goal run by Coppell, coming from seven different players, giving Coppell a 7-4 lead going into halftime. Additional goal scorers in the quarter were Jack McAdams, Daniel Gonzales, Andrew Sullivan, Aiden Strickland, Treat Judlin, and Carson Point.


And following form in the quarterly back-and-forth of the game, Denton would score the only 2 goals of the third quarter, cutting the Cowboy lead down to 7-6, and in a break from the pattern, Denton also scored the first goal of the 4th quarter, tying the game back up at 7-7.


But the Cowboys quickly restored order from brief chaos, by scoring the final 3 goals of the game to take the 10-7 win. Sophomore Treat Judlin (2 goals, 1 assist in the game) and Alex Hayden each added their second tallies of the game, and Sophomore Jacob Dashner added the final goal. Freshman goalie Sam Taylor saved 5 of 8 on-cage shots to hold down the Denton offense in the second half, along with Andrew Sullivan (5 groundballs) and Junior Davis Dodd (3 groundballs, 3 forced turnovers). Treat Judlin also won over 60% of his faceoffs in the game.


Coppell JV will now take their 4-2 season record on a road trip to Austin this weekend, where both the Varsity and JV teams will take on Westlake (whose Varsity is ranked #1 in the state currently) and Vandergrift.

As the Coppell Boys Varsity Lacrosse team prepared for their district-opener last night against the top-ranked Jesuit Rangers, there were lots of things that pointed to a really exciting contest. The weather was beautiful, and the stands were full of fans from both programs, so the atmosphere was great. 


Jesuit entered the game with a perfect 7-0 record, ranked #1 in Texas by one state poll, and ranked as the #7 team in the Southeast United States by Inside Lacrosse Magazine. On the other side, Coppell came into the game riding a 4-game winning streak, ranked #8 in the state, with an offense averaging almost 12 goals per game and a starting defensive unit allowing only 4.7 goals per game. Add to the mix that Coppell had the confidence of having defeated Jesuit in the pre-season Jesuit Invitational tournament in January, and this game had the makings of a really competitive match up, and that is exactly how it went.


The game started off with both teams battling hard, and both offenses working through their progressions, waiting for a chance to take advantage of any small mistake by the opposing defenses, but neither team budged. It would be a close game throughout that would see the game tied or the lead change hands a total of 11 times. 


Coppell finally dented the scoreboard when Senior middie Brandon Point dodged his way to near the crease for an unassisted goal. Jesuit would have to lean heavily on their primary three midfielders (all are committed to play Division 1 lacrosse in college) throughout the game, and it was Senior middie Matthew Priddy who opened the scoring for the Rangers with 2:34 remaining in the first quarter. Providence commit and Junior middie Billy Metz (2 goals in the game) followed with an unassisted goal of his own with just 2 seconds left in the quarter to give Jesuit their first lead of the game heading into the first break.


Jesuit then turned to Senior middie Jacob Jackson (Michigan commit, 3 goals in the game) for all of their scoring in the quarter, but it was the Cowboy offense which really got heated up in the 2nd quarter, notching 4 goals in the frame. Senior Walker Cain scored first to tie the game at 2-2, and it was Sophomore Tyler Wendel who found the net a few minutes later on a feed from Sophomore Gavin Osteen, which answered Jesuit’s first goal of the quarter and tied things again at 3-3. After Jesuit took the lead at 4-3, Osteen scored the first of his three goals of the game, this time on a feed from Brandon Point, to tie things at 4-4. Osteen then scored an unassisted goal with just 0:32 remaining in the half to give Coppell a 5-4 lead heading into halftime.


Both teams lost a bit of their offensive flow in the 3rd quarter, as both defensive units stepped up their play and limited the scoring to a single goal by Jesuit, resulting in a 5-5 tie score entering the final quarter. Junior goalie Hayden MacArthur had a strong game for Coppell, posting double digit saves and an over 60% save percentage. Sophomore Colton Delk drew the assignment of covering Jesuit’s top-scoring attackman and was able to hold him scoreless on the game, while Delk also grabbed 2 groundballs and forced 1 turnover. Sophomore Canon Peters led the Coppell unit with 2 ground balls and 3 forced turnovers in the game.

Jesuit continued to dominate time of possession into the 4th quarter, allowing them to score the next two goals and open up a 7-5 lead with just 6:49 remaining in the game. The Cowboys would answer back quickly on a strong dodge and feed from Junior middie Max Lamendola, who found Osteen (3 goals, 1 assist in the game) near the crease for a rocket shot that found the back of the net and drew Coppell back to within a single goal with 5:45 left to play.


The game intensified as every possession became critical at this point. Coppell was able to get a save and a possession with just over 1 minute remaining, but a loose ball scramble ended with Jesuit grabbing possession and eventually running the final minute out to get away with the narrow 7-6 win. 


In a game where both teams played at such a high level, it was hard to see either team come away with a loss, but the game certainly showed that both of these teams are capable of making runs into the post season and could potentially meet up again. Thanks to all the fans, students, and parents that were in attendance to help make it such an exciting game.


The Cowboys Varsity has a bit of a break as their next scheduled game is not until March 30, when both Varsity and Junior Varsity head to Austin for the weekend to take on Westlake and Vandergrift. Junior Varsity will play at home next Tuesday against Denton, so please come out and support the team.

The Coppell Boys Lacrosse team got back into action this past weekend when they hosted Kincaid, who traveled in from Houston on their Spring Break. This was the first game for the Cowboys after their Spring Break vacation and is their final game before they start their District games.


Coppell was a bit methodical in the early going, likely shaking off some of the rust from the break. The Cowboy offense got on the board at the 8:52 mark in the first quarter when Sophomore Tyler Wendel found Junior Leo Swaldi for his first goal of the game. Junior Max Lamendola followed that up with an unassisted goal about five minutes later, and Coppell finished the first quarter with a 2-0 lead. The scoring picked up slightly in the second quarter when Senior Walker Cain scored, followed by two more goals by Leo Swaldi on assists from Wendel and Cain, giving Swaldi his fourth consecutive hat trick game, and Coppell had a 5-0 lead at the half.


The most dominating performance of the first half came from the Coppell defense, which held Kincaid, who entered the game averaging over 7 goals per game, to no goals and only 5 attempted shots in the half, and Coppell held Kincaid scoreless in the first three quarters plus four minutes into the final quarter. Sophomore Colton Delk led the defensive unit with 3 groundballs in the game, and Sophomore Cannon Peters added 2 groundballs and 2 forced turnovers, while LSM Remi Reynolds was active again at both ends of the field with 2 ground balls, 1 forced turnover, and 1 goal scored. Junior goalie Hayden MacArthur stopped 8 of 10 shots on cage on the day, and Junior defensemen Reid Robbins had 2 groundballs and 1 forced turnover.


Sophomore Gavin Osteen got the scoring going in the 3rd quarter with a goal and an assist to Senior Brandon Point. Sophomore Bain Carter also notched a goal and an assist in the quarter, and Walker Cain (2 goals, 1 assist) added one more goal to finish the scoring for Coppell, giving them the 10-0 lead after three quarters.


Coppell was again able to play deep into their bench and build up experience among some of their younger players in the fourth quarter. Kincaid scored four times in the final eight minutes to pull the score to 10-4, which was the final. The win moves Coppell to a 5-1 record on the season.


Both the Coppell Boys teams will be back in action on Wednesday, March 20, as they open their District schedule by hosting the Dallas Jesuit Rangers, whose Varsity team enters that game undefeated and ranked #1 in Texas Division 1. Please come out to Lesley Field and support the Cowboys as they will be recognizing the Coppell Boys Youth Lacrosse teams between games. The JV game starts at 6 PM and Varsity will start at 7:30 PM.

Coppell entered their March 7th game with Lovejoy Lacrosse last week looking for their fourth win of the season and third win in a row. Both Coppell and Lovejoy came in with identical 3-1 season records, and each had a win over their only common opponent on the season, McKinney.


The teams both looked ready to take an aggressive offensive approach, as Coppell scored first on a fast break opportunity that ended with Sophomore Gavin Osteen finding Senior Brandon Point for the game's first goal. Lovejoy then took the following face off for a fast break with a missed initial shot, but one that was backed up and resulted in a goal to even the game at 1-1. At this point, both the offensive and defensive units for Coppell asserted themselves and put together their most impressive quarter of the season. The Cowboys defense was smothering and aggressive, minimizing quality scoring opportunities and possessions, and forcing numerous turnovers throughout the quarter while allowing no more goals. On offense, Coppell was efficient and productive, scoring the next nine straight goals of the game to finish with a 10-1 lead after the first quarter, effectively putting the game out of reach.


The early lead gave Coppell an opportunity to get several extra shifts for the entire roster, on offense, defense, and for their specialists. The scoring slowed a bit in the remaining quarters, but Coppell was able to add a few more goals and finished the game with a 16-5 win.


The defensive unit was impressive on their limited early opportunities, with Sophomores Colton Delk and Canon Peters each logging 2 ground balls and 2 take aways. Sophomore LSM Remington Reynolds made his impact on the offensive end of the field, scoring 3 goals and notching the first hat trick of his high school career. Senior Reece Reynolds was solid again at the faceoff stripe, winning over 80% of his face offs and grabbing 8 ground balls, along with Sophomore Tyler Wendel winning all four of his draws in the game.


On offense, top performances came from Senior Brandon Point with a perfect 3 goals on 3 attempted shots in the game,  Junior Leo Swaldi, who posted his 3rd straight 3-goal game of the season, Junior Max Lamendola who had 2 goals and 1 assist, and Senior Ethan Bivens, with 2 goals, 5 groundballs, and 1 forced turnover.


Coppell will return from Spring Break to take on Houston Kincaid this Saturday, March 16, at 11 AM in Coppell. They will then start preparing for their Division 1 North/West District opener against Jesuit Dallas on March 20. Please come out to Lesley Field and support the team on March 16 and March 20 in their next two home games.

The Cowboys Varsity Lacrosse team hosted out of town opponent Drippings Springs on Sunday, despite another day of weather that would make you think lacrosse is a winter sport, not a spring sport. Drippings Springs, playing out of the Central Division near Austin, made the quarterfinals of the Division 1 state playoffs last season, and traveled up to Dallas this weekend for games against ESD and Coppell.


The Cowboys were able to win early possessions, and the Coppell offense found lots of open shooting lanes against the Dripping Springs zone defense in the first six minutes, but they came up empty on converting any of those opportunities until Sophomore Gavin Osteen finally scored a goal, and then things got rolling from there. Osteen scored the first 3 goals of the game for Coppell on assists from Senior Walker Cain, Junior Leo Swaldi, and Cain again. Swaldi then scored the next 3 goals on assists from Osteen, Senior Brandon Point, and Sophomore Tyler Wendel. Sophomore LSM Remi Reynolds got into the offensive action by scoring a goal and assisting on the next to Cain, giving Coppell an 8-4 lead going into halftime.


The defense had a few missed assignments in the first half allowing Dripping Springs to stay in the game, but played a very clean 3rd quarter in which they allowed no goals while the offense built up the lead and put things out of reach. Sophomore Colton Delk played lock down defense against the Tigers top scorer on the season, while forcing 4 turnovers and grabbing 3 groundballs. Remi Reynolds grabbed 7 groundballs and forced 3 turnovers to go along with his goal and assist. Senior Ethan Bivens and Junior Peyton Barron added 3 groundballs each from their midfield positions.


Senior FOGO Reece Reynolds took every face off in the game and provided the Cowboys with several extra possessions, winning 15 of 24 face offs and grabbing 6 groundballs. Junior Goalie Hayden MacArthur got on a run of saves in the second half, finishing the game with 10 saves and a 67% save percentage. Coppell was effective with their ride for the game, leading to 8 failed clears by the Tigers. The Cowboys also dominated in the groundball department, posting a 35-18 advantage.


Two Coppell attackmen posted hat tricks for the second game in a row—Gavin Osteen (4 goals, 4 assists) and Leo Swaldi (3 goals, 3 assists). Seniors Walker Cain and Brandon Point each scored 2 goals and had 2 assists each. Junior Daniel Gonzales added 2 goals, and Sophomore Andrew Sullivan got his first goal of the season. The Cowboys were able to play deep into their bench in the fourth quarter and came away with the 15-7 win.


In the early game, Coppell JV took on Jesuit Dallas Prep Blue JV. The teams played close through the early part of the game, with Coppell having a 2-1 lead after the 1st  frame. But Coppell found their offensive rhythm in the 2nd  quarter and was able to grow the lead to 5-2 by halftime. Junior Daniel Gonzales was again the top scorer for the Cowboys, posting his first hat trick of the year, and Sophomore Andrew Sullivan assisted on two goals, including one to Freshman midfielder Ty Raushenbach. Freshman goalie Sam Taylor had 4 saves on 6 attempted shots in the half.


In the second half, the Coppell offense slowed down and the Rangers were able to go on a 4-goal run, including 3 scores in the final 4 minutes. Jesuit was able to get away with the 6-5 win, handing the Coppell JV their first loss of the season.


The Coppell Varsity team will be back at Lesley on March 7 at 7:30 PM to host Lovejoy, which will be the last game before the teams head into Spring Break.
