MANSFIELD- The Coppell Cowboys (4-1) used a balanced quick strike offense to roll past the Mansfield Summit Jaguars (2-2) 49-14 on Thursday night at Mansfield ISD Stadium. Coppell's quick strike offense had three first half scoring drives in the first half that lasted less than one minute and mix that in with a 10 play 99 scoring drive and it was pure domination for Coppell. Evans Okatcha ran wild rushing for 199 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries to lead the way for Coppell.
Coppell scored early and often as Okatcha scored on the game's second play from 55 yards out to give the Cowboys a 7-0 lead. After an interception the Cowboys got a short field and scored on a one yard run by sophomore Cam McDaniel and it was 14-0. After exchanging punts the Cowboys got the short end of the stick as they faced a first and ten at their own one. CHS would have no problems however, as they went on a ten play 99 yard drive capped by McDaniel who scored on a ten yard screen pass from QB Konner Joplin to make it 21-0. Okatcha would add a one yard run and sophomore WR Jaxon Shipley hauled in a 47 yard touchdown pass and when the first half was said and done Coppell held a 35-0 lead.
Mansfield Summit had a much better second half but it was too little too late, the Jags did go on a 16 play 75 yard drive to start the half to get a score as Richard Sanguinetti scored on a five yard run on a fourth and goal play to get the Jaguars on the board. Ryan Tollett hauled in a 15 yard touchdown pass from backup QB Hayden Hawk and McDaniel added his third touchdown of the night to round out the scoring in the second half. Summit had one score sandwiched in between as sophomore RB Lewis Washington scored on an eleven yard run for the final margin of 49-14.
Next week Mansfield Summit opens up District 4-5A play with Mansfield, while Coppell takes the week off before opening 6-5A play against Southlake Carroll.
