GEORGETOWN – Highland Park fell one win short of its sixth state championship on Saturday.
Coppell took advantage of the wind in the first half of a 3-0 victory in the Class 6A title game at Birkelbach Field.
Sarah King and Emma Jett scored a pair of wind-aided goals seven minutes apart in the first half, and Coppell held the ball in Highland Park’s end for the majority of the opening stanza.
King headed home a long pass by Madeline Guderian at the 18-minute mark of the opening half. The long pass traveled 30 yards and hung up in the wind, allowing the Coppell forward to position herself under the ball and give her team a lead.
