It was a successful week for the girls and boys CCHS water polo teams, when on Tuesday night both won their games against Novah Titans. Just two days later the Cowboys had another game, and once again the boys and girls defeated their opponent, Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
The girls played first against the Titans, the Lady Cowboys kept a strong lead throughout the whole game. Although the Titans may have scored 7 goals, it was not enough to beat the Cowboys. FInishing off the game with a lead of 4 goals, and score of 11-7. Facing off later that night was the boys’ team, they too won but with much smaller numbers on the board. The final score was 5-3.
Cameron Pritchett even said earlier that day with confidence,“We will it is just a matter of what the final amount is actually scored.”
As he was right they did win but it did not come as easy as expected nor planned. The first half was considered to be “Sloppy” and tedious mistakes occurred. When the second half approached the Cowboys cleaned up their acts, and made a smart decision to play defensive in order to maintain their 2 point lead. Once the timer finally buzzed, it was the second CCHS victory of the day.
To continue on with all of Tuesday night’s’ success, the girls went into the water and played their game, it was won of their most successful wins. It was a Complete blowout, winning 15-3. Senior Jordan Cook scored 6 goals and was even taken out to give others a chance to play and get some quality playing time. The whole game the Cowboys kept their lead, no matter who was in. This was not only an important win but game to, because although the win may have come easy for the girls it was a good thing to let everyone get a chance to show themselves and work their way up to more play time. This game was nothing to some but it made others whole season. After the girls defeated Stoneman, the boys were in and ready to do the same. It turned out to be a 7-3 win and once again a game that was played defensive at points in order to keep a strong and steady lead.
The Cowboys water polo teams ended the week with four strong win’s, and creating a good showing for themselves and Cooper City High school’s, sportsmanship and quality athletics.
