Cooper looks super in big win

COOPER  — The Cooper Bulldogs  averaged 9.7 yards per carry Friday whipping the Wolfe City Wolves, 46-12.

It was a scoring parade for the Bulldogs with five different players crossing the goal line for the 2-0 squad.

The Bulldogs opened the season last week taming Honey Grove 43-18.

“It was a good game. We have some guys who are getting better for us. We did have a few score tonight,” said Cooper head football coach Ronnie Green. “We did better than last week, we cut down the number of penalties. Our line blocked well, I am pleased with them. They got better in a hurry. They did good.”

The Tigers were also out-gained 277 to 211 in total yards Friday night.

Both teams made three turnovers.

“We made mistakes, it was like our first game of the year, not the second. We had turnovers and missed assignments,” said Mount Vernon head football coach Karl Whitehurst.


Cumby Trojans fall to Rockwall Christian

ROCKWALL — The Cumby Trojans had a good effort, just not many healthy bodies.

The Trojans, missing at least five starters due to injuries, fell 12-7 to Rockwall Christian Academy Friday night in a non-district football game.

“We still have the five players out hurt. We had a lot of freshmen, sophomores on the field,” admitted Cumby head football coach Ed Perez. “We’re struggling due to a lack of experience. It is really hurting us.”
