For the second week in a row, the game came down to the final minutes. With less than a minute left in the game, a YMLA player made a fantastic play in their own end zone sealing the victory. We took a 20-16 loss! We are playing exciting football with a lot of effort! This team looks completely different from our home opener against Granbury. We keep getting better each week!
Cameron West, Jayvon Simmons, and Devoe Walker led an offensive attack that gained over 220 yards. On the first series of the game, freshman Jude Collins kicked a 24 yard field goal for the first points of the game. Later sophomore Devoe Walker hit junior Lazarus Wilson with a 44 yard touchdown pass. We took a 10-6 lead into halftime. In the third quarter, senior Cameron West scored on an exciting 27 yard touchdown run.
Defensively, juniors Rayvon Jones, Jonathan Morgan, Lynden Dukes, Josh Reyes, and Deterrion Kellough had a great game. Seniors Jordan Randle, Eric Hall, and Keon Duvall led the rest of the front 7.
Antwan Funches, Keon Jones, LeRondre Alston, and Phillip Allen all had a great game in the secondary.
As always....GO COUGARS!!!
