The Cooper Cougars kept their record against El Paso schools perfect on Friday night, and racked up another bi-district win in the process.

A lot of talk before the game was about whether or not quarterback Lorenzo Joe would be under center. The Texas commit quickly quieted any concerns with a long pass to Corey Boone to get the Cougars in scoring range.

A touchdown run by Trey Dye would quickly make it a 7-0 lead for Cooper.

After a stop by the Cooper defense, the offense once again went back to work. This time it would be Skyler Wilson with a 22 yard touchdown run to extend the Cougar laed to 14-0.

The Cougars would continue to pile it on in the first half, including a touchdown run by Denver Gravitt to extend the advantage to 21-0.

The offense would also eclipse a Cooper milestone by breaking the school's single season rushing record.

Not to be forgotten in the game would also be the play of the Cougar defense, which on Friday was led by Cordell Dorsey. The senior safety dressed for the first time on Friday since week zero against Wichita Falls Ryder.

With the combined effort by the offense and defense, the Cooper Cougars cruised to a 49-14 win and will take on Arlington Lamar in the next round.

That game will be played next Friday night at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene. Kick-off will be set for 7:30 p.m.
