Friday Night Football...

Friday night's football was a home game between Cooper and Austin Westlake. Westlake came in ranked #10 in the state, Cooper was unranked but put up some big numbers the week before. The game started out looking like it could be a blowout, and not the one anybody expected. Cooper was ahead 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. But, by the end of the half it was starting to look like Cooper had fallen back to earth. The third quarter wasn't all that great, and the fourth quarter started out slow. Then the last five minutes of the game both teams came alive. Westlake pulled ahead, then Cooper came back to score. Then Westlake drove down the field again to score with only 2 minutes to go. Cooper got the ball back and drove down the field and scored with only 11 seconds left. This team played a lot different than most of the Cooper teams I've seen in the past, they never believed they were going to lose. In the past after Westlake scored to go ahead, they'd pretty much give up and accept the loss. This year, they never gave up. It may just be an interesting season for the Cougars.
