  • Yesterday, the girls soccer team matched up against Kennedy Middle School in what turned out to be a nail-biter. The Cougars struck early with eight shots in the first half coming from Lexie Wheeler, Emily Ledger, Sarah Gordon, Sam Wunsch, Lexi Lilly, and Marybeth Grasso. However, it was not long until Rhianna O'Meara threaded a through ball behind the defense to find the foot of Lexi Lilly. Lilly posted her first goal as a Lady Cougar off a hard strike into the top right corner of the goal. Shortly after, Rhianna O'Meara sent a blistering shot over the goalie from outside the 18-yard box. The goal was said to be reminiscent of the late Manchester United superstar David Beckham. Additionally, Mikayla Evans, Huntyr Courtois, and Arden Sansom played outstanding and contributed to the Cougar's dominance during the first half of play. Defensive support came from Ella Suppicich, Haydin Courtois, and Megan Martin as they held Kennedy to a scoreless first half. In the second, the Cougar's let an early goal pop in to the back of the net bringing the score to 2-1. Momentum shifted again as a late penalty kick led to an even 2-2. Despite the amazing efforts by Taryn Suffish, Rhianna O'Meara, and Candace Walsh the game ended in a tie with both teams leaving it all out on the field. The Cougars face long-time rivals Ellington in Cougar Stadium tomorrow at 3:30. Come out and support the team!
