  • The lady Cougars traveled to Ellington yesterday afternoon in a physical and face paced game. The Cougars started by matching Ellington's pace on the ball. Sarah Gordon struck first with a speedy run down the wing and was able to find the back of the net putting the Cougars up 1-0. Throughout the entire game, midfielders Megan Martin, Iniya Raja, and Emily Ledger seemed to never run out of steam as they kept pace with the opposition up and down the pitch. TE's defenders including Sidney Montana, Hailey Testa, Leighana Ferrabelo, and Mikayla Evans played OUTSTANDING and demonstrated true work ethic in their ability to protect the goal. Shots in the second half came from Chion Pollard, Lexi Lilly, and Sarah Gordon as the Cougars pushed forward to secure a victory. However, the effort to clinch a win was thwarted as Ellington managed to pop in two shots midway through the second half. Despite the loss, Haley Butler made a resounding 8 saves on the day and led the back four with her leadership between the pipes. However, the highlight of the game came from Sidney Montana who managed to clear an opposing shot off the goal line, saving TE from going down another goal. With all said and done, TE move to a record of 3-3 on the season and look forward to face Illing at home today at 3:30.
