Benbrook Match-up

Posted by Coach Grissett on 2/3/2024

The Lady Cougars varsity squad fought hard last night, but got their first loss in district play.  After a very rough start and pre-game jitters, the girls found their rhythm, not allowing any goals in the second half of play. Many of the ladies had to play positions out of their comfort zone as we were missing a handful of our girls, most notably our captain and defensive midfielder, Amy Sanchez, due to illness. Her voice and presence on the field were sorely missed! The cougars will take this loss as a learning experience, and move forward with new-found drive and determination.

The JV finally made their district debut, showing no hesitation as they held the Bobcats to 0-0 at half-time. The girls played aggressively and held their shape beautifully, connecting passes across the field and taking several shots on goal. Unfortunately, a combination of penalty kicks and well-placed shots by the Bobcats left the Cougars with a 3 point deficit by the end of the game.

Both teams have a bye this Tuesday, but will play again on Friday at Dunbar HS. 

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us and, as always, GO COUGARS!
