Teague Rolls Through Cooper

Teague's punishing ground game was too much for winless Cooper to handle on Saturday as the Lions rolled to a 3-0 record with a 55-7 win.

MESQUITE- The Teague Lions (3-0) rolled to an easy 55-7 win over the Cooper Bulldogs (0-4) Saturday afternoon at Mesquite Memorial Stadium. Teague used a punishing ground game that topped 300 yards to break open what was a 15-7 score at halftime. Teague was led by FB James Green who ran for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns and QB/DB Quinten Coleman who had 2 rushing scores and an interception on defense.

After forcing a Cooper three and out Teague QB Quinten Coleman burst around right end for a 33 yard touchdown run to put Teague up 8-0 with James Green's two point run, after the Lions defense stepped up and forced a second straight three and out. Teague would quickly go up two scores as Seth Watson burst around left end untouched for a 45 yard touchdown run, then he'd add the PAT to make it 15-0 Teague. Cooper would finally get their legs under them and go on a seven minute drive capped by Sean Weatherspoon from two yards out and the PAT was true and the Teague lead was cut to 15-7. Neither team was able to muster any more offense in the first half and the score was 15-7 Teague at the half.

Cooper caught their first big break of the game as DL Holden Jenkins recovered a Kevin Smith fumble at the CHS 27 to stop a Lions drive. Smith would make up for the mistake as he would block a Cooper punt to give the Lions the ball at the Cooper 8. Justin Hudspeth would cap the drive with a two yard run, the PAT was true and Teague took a 22-7 lead. After recovering a Cooper fumble Teague would quickly extend the lead as James Green would score on a 52 yard run to make it 29-7 Teague. Quinten Coleman would make a big defensive play as he would get an interception of Cooper QB Garrett McGraw and return it to the Cooper 14. Coleman would cap the drive with a 4 yard run to extend the THS lead to 36-7. Early in the fourth quarter Teague would take advantage of another Cooper fumble as Kenny Wright would score on a 16 yard run to make it 42-7 Teague. Midway through the fourth quarter James Green would add a 16 yard touchdown to make it 48-7 Teague. Justin Hudspeth would add a 54 yard touchdown run to make it 55-7 Teague which would be the final.
