COOPER cruises to easy win over Wyatt, 56-7

It was a perfect night for the Cooper season opener against Ft. Worth O. D. Wyatt. The Cougars have worked hard and prepared well. The stands were full. Excitement filled the air as the Cougars took the field for their first time in 2009!

Darron Rosenquist took some great pictures throughout the night!

The Cooper Cougars put on quite a show in the season opener.
Ryan Heslep threw two touchdown passes and ran for another as the Coogs drubbed the O.D. Wyatt Chaparrals 56-7 on Friday at Shotwell Stadium.

Cooper, 33-17 all-time in season openers, led 42-0 at the half and cruised to the victory.
“We threw the ball well. We ran the ball well. The guys up front did a great job,” Cooper coach Mike Spradlin said. “We created opportunities defensively. We had great field position in the first half and took advantage of it. I’m just real pleased with this win.”

Heslep completed 12-of-16 passes for 180 yards — all in the first half. He played only the first series of the second half, before giving way to backup Clayton Nicholas.

“I thought we came out and executed well on both sides of the ball,” Heslep said. “We had some jitters on the first series, but we battled back and put a lot of points on the board.”
Three Cooper running backs ran for touchdowns, including two by Kendrick Powdrill, who finished with 86 yards on nine carries.

Alford Cooper, who ran for a game-high 106 yards on nine carries, and Davon Riddick each also ran for a TD.
Tommy Bowman caught a 29-yard touchdown pass and returned a punt 66 yards for another. Sammy Beall had a 28-yard touchdown catch for Cooper’s first score of the night.
The Coogs rolled up 466 yards on offense, while allowing only 136 on defense — all but 27 yards of that in the second half, and 63 of those yards came on Johnny Perry’s touchdown run late in the third quarter.
“It was very crisp, good offensive football,” Spradlin said. “Our defense flew around and held them.

Our special teams played well. In all the phases, we played well for 2 ½ quarters. I was really pleased.”
Cooper scored on four straight possessions, after coming up empty on its opening drive — and the Coogs’ had a 14-yard touchdown pass from Heslep to Khole Jackson called back on that drive.
Cooper opened the scoring with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Heslep to Beall with 2:12 left in the first quarter.
Less than a minute later, after recovering a fumble at the Wyatt 14, Powdrill scampered 14 yards for the touchdown.

The Coogs exploded for 28 points in the second quarter.
On the their first possession of the second quarter, Jamail Lowry caught a 50-yard pass from Heslep, down to the Chap 1-yard line, to set up a 1-yard TD run by Heslep to help the Coogs take a 21-0 lead.
The next time the Coogs touched the ball, Heslep threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Bowman for a 28-0 lead.

Bowman would later return a punt 66 yards for a touchdown, and Powdrill capped a six-play, 80-yard drive with an 8-yard TD run just before the half.
Riddick ran 16 yards for a TD early in the third quarter, and Alford Cooper ripped off a 43-yard TD run — set up by a Lawrence Brownfield interception — to cap the scoring for the night for the Coogs.
Wyatt avoided the shutout when Johnny Perry ran 63 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter.
Note — It’s the second straight year the Coogs have beaten Wyatt to open the season. Cooper won last year’s game 33-0 at Shotwell.
