Keller and Coppell battle to an entertaining draw

The two top boys squads in District 6-5A squared off on Friday night as Keller visited Coppell.  Coppell had their perfect 16-0-0 record on the line.

Keller opened with a very conservative formation with a back four and two holding midfielders and a single forward.  It was clear their goal was to stifle the Coppell offense and muddle up the midfield.  The tactics worked as Coppell had a difficult time establishing much possession.

The best chance of the opening half fell to Coppell in the 31st minute.  Chris Madden fired a low shot headed for the corner of the net but Keller keeper Richard Mayse dove to make the one handed save.

The second half saw the match open up a bit as Coppell began to throw more players into the attack.  It allowed Keller some opportunities to counter and both sides were up and down the field. 

There were very few chances from the run of play though.  The best chances for both sides seemed to come from set pieces.  Long throw ins and long free kicks.  Coppell began to push the game in the 70th minute and put Keller under pressure for a long stretch.

Coppell looked to have found the winning goal as Reza Askari put a shot on goal from close range, but again Richard Mayse made the save.  The rebound fell right in front of goal though where it was fired at the empty net.  Keller's Connor Yancey flung himself in the way and blocked the ball on the goal line keeping the game tied.

Keller had a chance of their own minutes later, but Andrew Monaghan saw his header glance just wide.  The match ended 0-0 and Coppell sees their spotless record tarnished a bit.  The draw left the standings unchanged with Coppell and Keller tied in first place in District 6-5A.  The two team's hold at the top tightened as well as Denton Guyer were upset by Fossil Ridge.
