Cooper head coach Todd Moebes said, "It was frustrating. We probably didn't play as clean a game as we needed to. We didn't play as well defensively as we needed to. Certainly, offensively I thought we did a good job of moving the ball. We had some negative plays in there that kind of hurt us, but we were able to them and move the chains and put points on the board. Defensively, we've got to be able to play and adjust better to what the other offense is doing. We've got to play a more complete game as a football team. It' was disappointing, but we've got to be able to respond this week. Lubbock Coronado's a great football team, and we've got to get ready for them."
Robinett said, "Defensively, big plays hurt you. It's been the bug-a-boo all year, especially on the 1st series. Are you at a loss? Do you have an idea of how you are going to stop this. I know you've talked to them about it."
Coach Moebes answered, "Coach Moebes said, "You can't be at a loss. You better figure out a way. If you don't figure out a way, it's going to keep happening. I guess we thought we had found a way, and it keeps happening, so we got to find another way. We'll keep going back to the drawing board and keep coaching them hard, just like we do every single week. I have been proud of the way our guys have practice year long. They've done a real good job at practice. We've just got to be able to execute when the lights come on."
Cooper continues District 2-5A play on Friday night at Shotwell Stadium. They host Lubbock Coronado, who lost their district opener to San Angelo Central.
