Carter Riverside

Posted by Coach Grissett on 1/31/2024

Yesterday, the Lady Cougars traveled to Carter Riverside for their second district game, and fought hard to pull off a 3-0 victory. In the first half, Jocelyn Nava made a beautiful through ball to Jackie Valandran on the outside who rocketed a one touch shot into the far upper corner of Carter's goal from 30 yards out. A few minutes later, Amy Sanchez gave a quick assist to Jocelyne "Pickle" Ruvalcaba, who then stuffed a second goal into the back of the Eagle's net. In the second half, Carter made some adjustments to their attacking line, but their efforts were all for naught as Candace "The Enforcer" Ndekelengwe stood her ground to block any Carter attempt at a breakaway. To finish off our attack, Joceline Mendoza made a perfect shot at the back of CRHS's goal off a driven square pass from 'Pickle'

Stand-out performances were also given by Amy Sanchez at defensive middle, Gaby Cuevas at attacking middle, and Taylor "The Truck" Torres at outside middle.

Unfortunately, Carter Riverside did not have a JV team to field either, so our JV girls are still waiting to get a district game in.

The girls are now 2-0 in district play. Friday we are home against Benbrook Middle-High. JV at 6:30, Varsity at 8. The girls would love to see you in the stands...your support really makes all the difference. If storms roll in and refuse to leave, we will play on Saturday instead, times TBA.

Thanks for all you do for our girls, and GO COUGARS!
