On Monday, February 27, Cooper City High School’s girls’ lacrosse team took on Cypress Bay High School in an away game. Unfortunately, the game resulted in a Cowboy loss.
The Cowboys entered the Lightening field ready to put up a fight. With several goals by senior Cassie Kascak and sophomore Ally Pratt, the Cowboys started off strong. Though entering the half, the Lightenings were in the lead.
Into the second half, the Cowboys hustled and were able to catch up, but unfortunately not enough to clear the Lightening. The game ended with the final score of 12-8.
The next night, Tuesday, February 28, the Cowboys took on the University School Suns in another away game. The game ended in yet another rough Cowboy loss.
In the first half, senior Kelly Loffredo took charge, making the first two points for Cooper City. The Cowboys’ defense stepped up and blocked most of the Suns attempts to score.
Following halftime with the Suns in the lead 10-2, the Cowboys got back on the field and stepped it up. Junior Kaitlin Valiente took every opportunity handed to her to cradle the ball towards the goal.
After a lot of hard work, multiple plays and penalties, the game came to a close with a final score of 14-5.
