The girls Varsity soccer team has done an incredible job representing Tomball so far in this season, going 11-0-3 overall and even bringing home a first place trophy from the “I-10 shootout” tournament. Friday, Jan. 26, marked the beginning of a much different part of soccer season: district play.
Tomball will compete with the seven other neighboring schools in our district for the rest of the regular season, hoping to eventually earn a spot in playoff contention.
The girls hope to carry their momentum from their preseason success against larger schools and tougher opponents and translate it to success in district. You couldn’t ask for a better start.
The girls started district by handily beating Willis 8-1 and than followed up with two 5-0 beatdowns, one on the defending district champ Magnolia Bulldogs, and another against the Brenham Cubs. Coming off a sweep of Brenham and heading into this weekend’s games, the Girls Varsity and Junior Varsity teams are still undefeated.
Starting center-midfielder Payton Doiron stressed the importance of beginning district with a solid start.
“Starting strong helps create a winning atmosphere where everyone expects to win,” Payton said. “That causes people to raise their individual goals and expectations.”
The Coogs still have a lot of district games left to play, and even though they’ve been very successful.
Cougars starting outside-midfielder Hannah Sprague wants to make sure they don’t get ahead of themselves.
“The most important thing is day in and day out we come and try our hardest and not forget to have fun doing it,” she said. “Oh, and winning is fun too.”
