The Cowboys JV Lacrosse team looked right at home in their first road contest of the season, posting a convincing 14-3 win over Plano East JV this past Friday evening at Jack Clark Fields in Plano.


One of the most dominant performance of the game was turned in by Faceoff Middie Reece Reynolds, who won the clamp on all but one face off, and won possession for Coppell on 74% of his face offs. He added an assist, 3 groundballs, and 1 forced turnover for good measure. The team hustle was on display as well as Coppell had a 35-16 advantage over Plano East in groundballs won.


The Coppell defense kept Plano East’s scoring to a minimum, led by 5 saves on 8 shots by goalie Lee Martin, for a combined 73% team save percentage. Close defenders Sophomore David Lucas and Junior Lars Mazurek each forced turnovers and Freshman Reid Robbins (3 groundballs, 3 forced turnovers) had a scoop and score fast break goal, as a follow up to his assist in last week’s game.


The offense started scoring early in this game, and never really let up. It was an unselfish effort as Coppell got assists on 10 of their 14 goals, and there were 10 different players who scored goals for the Cowboys. Top performances came in the form of a hat trick from Junior Marc Webb (3 goals, 1 assist), and balanced overall production from Sophomore Ethan Bivens (2 goals, 2 assists, 6 GB’s and 3 forced turnovers) and Freshman Peyton Barron (2 goals, 2 assists, 3 GB’s and 1 forced turnover).


The JV Boys will again take to the road for their next scheduled game on Wednesday, March 1 at 6:30 PM, when they take on the Frisco HS JV team. Please come support the team as they look to remain undefeated on the year.

The Cowboys broke out the offensive firepower in their season opener to defeat Seven Lakes High School (Katy, TX) by a final score of 12 to 9 on Saturday afternoon. Seven Lakes took an early lead to end the first quarter, led by their top scorer on the day, Caleb Cole. But Coppell surged back, powered by Junior attackmen Zach Bartolacci (3 goals, 2 assists on the day) and Reese Walker (3 goals, 1 assist on the day). Then Senior midfielder Ben Goyne (2 goals, 1 assist on the day) got involved in the scoring with an unassisted goal and an assist to Sophomore Walker Cain, giving Coppell a 7 to 5 lead at halftime.


The scoring continued for Coppell in the second half, led by Senior Spencer Haddock (2 goals, 1 assist on the day, plus a tough-to-explain "no goal"), and was punctuated by a laser shot from 15 yards out from Reese Walker to finish the scoring for the Cowboys.


The Reynolds brothers (Senior Ripken and Sophomore Reece) dominated the face-off spot for Coppell, winning over 75% of the draws and giving Coppell a huge advantage in offensive possessions all day. Ripken also added 1 goal and 1 assist in the game.


The Cowboy defense settled down and applied the pressure, forcing over 14 turnovers, and provided the team a sizable advantage in groundballs, winning 20 grounders to only 10 won by Seven Lakes (unofficial count).  Seniors Dylan Thompson and Ryan Gordon each had two critical take aways to stop some late game scoring threats by Seven Lakes. Both goalies were solid, posting 50% save percentages on the day. Freshman Hayden MacArthur had 5 stops in the first half and Senior Cooper McAden saved 4 shots in the second half.


Head Coach Jeff Roberts and staff will now turn their attention towards their next game, when they will travel to play Plano East HS at Jack Carter (Central Grass Field) this Friday, February 17, at 8 PM. Please come out and cheer on your undefeated Cowboys.

Mark Webb contributed 2 goals on the day and Walker Cain added 1 goal and 2 assists.


The Cowboy defense got sharper as the day went on, with Sophomore David Lucas and Freshmen Reid Robbins and Davis Dodd playing every shift. Peyton Barron did a little bit of everything, winning ground balls, playing short-stick middie and LSM on man down, as well as scoring an unassisted goal. Close defender Reid Robbins even got in on the offense, scooping up a grounder, leading the fast break, and finding Sophomore Cole Kaiser, who scored. Sophomore Luke Bivens also showed his two-way middie skills, posting one goal and 1 assist, along with a couple of steals and foot clears on the defensive end of the field.

This was the first full-field game action this season for many of our players, and it gave our coaching staff a chance to see the team against some outside competition, so it was beneficial all around.
