The 2016 Region 1Champions

The Coppell Cowboys Soccer Team and Head Coach Chad Rakestraw are the 2016 Region 1 Champions!  The undefeated, #2 nationally ranked (#1 in Texas) 24-0-2 (including two preseason scrimmages) Cowboys defeated El Paso Socorro 3-0 in the Regional Semi-final on Friday, April 8th, in Midland.  Wyatt Priest scored two goals and Player of the Game, Stjepan Kilic, scored on a free kick. 

The Cowboys then won a hard fought 2-1 battle over Plano East in the Regional Final on Saturday, April 9th.   Nick Taylor scored off of a penalty kick and Wyatt Priest scored off of a Nick Taylor corner kick.  The Cowboys are headed to the State Tournament in Georgetown this weekend!  They will face Katy Cinco Ranch on Friday, April 15th, at 5 pm at Birkelbach Field in the 6A State Semi-final and hopefully onto to the State Final on Saturday, April 16th at 6:30 pm.  Way to go Cowboys!  If you can make the trip, the Cowboys would love your support in Georgetown!
