This week the Cowboys faced the Plano West Wolves on the road. This was their second district game and first on the road. In the first half, Coppell came out focused and ready to take on their opponent. The Wolves ran the ball heavily, but the Cowboys’ defense was well prepared and had success stopping the run-game. Coppell’s offense was well-equipped to handle the different looks the Wolves’ defense was bound to show them. With a sizable lead going into halftime, the Cowboys were feeling confident in finishing the game. In the second half they did just that: the defense held Wolves’ offense scoreless and the offense controlled the pace of the game, hindering the Wolves from catching any momentum.
Offensively, the Cowboys experienced success through the air by way of QB Jack Fishpaw, who went 16-23 for 261 yards, and threw one touchdown. WR Carter Kincaid, had a stellar night catching the ball only four times, but for 93 yards and one fancy touchdown. WR Luca Grosoli also had an excellent night with four catches for 78 yards. QB Landry Fee, scored two rushing touchdowns in the redzone when it mattered most. RB Blake Robbins, rushed for 60 yards off of 16 carries.
Defensively, the Cowboys were extremely dominant. The defense ended the night with four turnovers that changed the trajectory of the game. LB Jack McAdams, had eight solo tackles, two forced fumbles, and an interception in the second half that helped to seal-the-deal. DB Isaiah Nichols, had four tackles, a fumble recovery that changed the momentum of the game in the first half, and an interception. LB Ike Odimegwu, had two big tackles, and a huge fumble recovery.
Overall, it was a solid victory for the Cowboys. Next week, they look to continue their win streak and defeat Marcus High School.
