Eastern Hills Match

Posted by Coach Grissett on 1/29/2024

Your Lady Cougar soccer team started district play in the pouring rain this past Friday against Eastern Hills. The turf was slick and visibility was limited, but the girls showed up and showed out.

To start us off, Jocelyne "Pickle" Ruvalcaba sent a bullet of a cross into the box that resulted in a goal, sending us into half-time up 1-0. In the second half, the scoring picked up along with the rain, as Taylor Torres sent another missile into their box, resulting in another Cougar goal. Quick to follow were goals from Brenda Martinez and Karen Silva, and a goal from a tense penalty kick taken by Joceline Mendoza. In the last two minutes, Gaby Cuevas sealed Eastern Hills' fate by stuffing one final goal into the back of the net in the last two minutes of regulation play to end the game with a 6-0 win. It should also be noted that excellent performances were given by Laine "Soup" Hammer in the goal, making incredible saves despite slick conditions, and Candace Ndekelengwe who has become an absolute enforcer on the back line. 

Unfortunately Eastern Hills did not have a JV team to field, so our JV girls have yet to make their district debut. 

Tomorrow we're at Carter-Riverside, and take on Benbrook at home on Friday, JV at 6:30pm and Varsity at 8pm for both games. The girls would love to see you in the stands...your support really makes all the difference.
