McNeese Cowgirls Blow Rajun Cajuns Off The Field
Between the sprinkles and sometimes shady cloudy skies the McNeese Cowgirl Soccer team moved to 5-1 on the season with a dominating Sunday performance against the Rajun Cajuns Soccer team. It was the Cowgirls fourth consecutive win as the relentless Cowgirl attack hardly let the Cajuns rage or even have room to breathe.
Head coach Drew Fitzgerald said Taking care of business at home is always really important as we get ready for conference play in the coming weeks, It’s great to see that this team really understands what it takes to win at home. That’s good to see.
Throughout the afternoon the Cowgirls defense dominated play allowing only one shot in the first half and no shots attempted on goal. This while the Cowgirls steadily attacked throughout the half taking 8 shots on goal for two goals.
First-half scorers were Sr midfielder Morgan Middleton, then Chino Hills, Californias Dayna Garcia free kicked a 45-yard goal after a called Rajun Cajun foul. On coach Drews instruction, Garcia took aim at the goalie to force her to make a play and accurately punched the ball into the net for the score.
We came out with a real sense of purpose from the get-go by putting them under the gun to set the tone, we got to put everyone on the field today because of good play. We really didn’t have to take anyone off because of bad play and everyone who went out there got the job done. said, Coach Fitzgerald.
Goal three came in the second half when Nola Prickett, her first of the year, blasted a shot hard into the net on an assist by Rachel Palet from the corner, it was Palets first assist of the year.
The Cowgirls are off until Friday (9/7) when they board the bus and head way on down into Edinburg, Texas to face UT-Rio Grande Valley.
