Tuesday night the Cooper City High Lady Cowboys varsity soccer team won at home during their senior night by a score of 4-0 to the visiting Nova Titans, continuing their outstanding regular season. With playoffs in a couple weeks, the lady cowboys hope to continue their momentum.
At the beginning of the game, the Cowboys had full control over Nova and completed many passes until Leslie De Leon scored to make the game 1-0 early on. Nova couldn’t get past the Cowboys’ half or get any good shots on goal. Going into halftime, Cowboys forward Vikki Ramos scored two headers to make the game 3-0.
At halftime, Cooper City’s seniors were walked out by their family members in attempt to honor their soccer careers. Saige Griffin, Samantha Stofsky, Katie Slinkosky, Heather Mcleod, Mia Malovic, Jemma Miller, and Stephanie Mendez all took part.
“We performed well and came out with a win, although we could have capitalized more on the scoring opportunities,” Senior Jemma Miller said. “The team should focus on playing collectively as a unit and ensuring that all scoring chances are taken full advantage of.”
At the end of the game, Vikki Ramos scored her third goal to make the it 4-0. The Cowboys continued to take shots and make scoring opportunities. Their defense didn’t let up any goals or let players past them. The game ended 4-0 with a shutout from the Cowboys.
“The biggest moment of the game was Vikki Ramos’s amazing header after a cross from Saige,” Senior Katie Slinkosky said. “It is great that we have such a diverse team so it does not feel as if there is a “second string” or “third string” because almost all the players on our team bring amazing efforts to the game.”
