Cooper played their district opener against Midland Lee last Friday. After having a tough start the Cougars righted the ship winning three straight. Lee was coming in to the game undefeated, but not having played anyone really tough. On paper it looked to be a pretty good game. Then the game started. Lee's offense was horrible and Cooper's defense was playing lights out. Not the best combination for Lee, and a really favorable one for Cooper.
The only problem with the game is Cooper was getting things done so easily they played a pretty vanilla offense. Not a lot of really great plays just pounding the ball and throwing some short passes and getting good yardage with it. Luckily the defense was playing well and making some nice plays. One really cool thing about this game was the high school kids mimicking the pros and the players and the coaches wearing pink in support of breast cancer awareness month.
