On defense, senior Kooper Kearns made 14 tackles; sophomore Pate Beckham made eight tackles; and freshman Landon Temples made six tackles.

“Our defense has been playing great,” Coach Lance Godwin said in an interview. “So, we took all our time now on offensive line, blocking, really finding their man, filling the right gaps and getting outside the pulling guards. And it showed tonight, we had a lot of break-away runs.”

According to Godwin, the Cougars’ hardest challenge will be in the next five games. The Cougars are set to face off against Covington in an away region game this weekend. Kickoff is at 7:30 PM.
