Final score A. Cooper 62 - S.A.Lakeview 14...the details!

Nights like these don’t come around very often — not this deep in the season.

But Davon Riddick, Ryan Heslep and the rest of the Cooper starters had a fairly short night Friday, making quick work of the Lake View Chiefs.
Riddick rolled up 164 total yards and scored four touchdowns, and Heslep threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns as the Cougars mauled Lake View 62-14 in a District 4-4A football game at Shotwell Stadium.

Cooper (4-3 overall, 2-0 district) scored on eight of its nine possessions in the game — coming up empty on its last drive when the game was well over and the starters were on the bench.
It was a big win for a Cooper team facing Big Spring and defending district champion Wolfforth Frenship in the upcoming weeks. Big Spring trounced Plainview 49-12 to — the Steers and Cougars hook up next week at Shotwell.
Frenship fell to 0-2 in 4-4A play after a 20-17 loss to Hereford.
“I think we needed momentum going into these next two weeks with Big Spring and Frenship,” Cooper coach Mike Spradlin said. “It was a big game for us. I don’t think there’s any doubt about
it. I was real tickled with the way we played.”

Riddick ran for 126 yards and three touchdowns. His last carry of the night was a five-yard touchdown run to give the Coogs a 47-14 lead with 7:57 left in the third quarter. He also had TD runs of 41 and 22 yards.
“I give it up to the O-line,” Riddick said. “They did a great job. They opened up a lot of holes for me. They made real easy.”
Riddick also had three catches for 38 yards, including a 19-yard pass from Heslep.
Heslep, who completed 12-of-15 passes for 182 yards and no interceptions, also threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Tommy Bowman and a 10-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Beall.
Kendrick Powdrill added 131 yards rushing, including touchdown runs of seven and 39 yards, and Britton Hale returned a fumble 15 yards for a Cooper score.

Cooper amassed 438 yards on offense, including 256 on the ground.
“It all starts up front with those guys,” Spradlin said. “They didn’t feel like they played as well last week as they can. I think they put that one on their back tonight.”
The Cooper defense held the Chiefs to 182 total yards, including minus-53 rushing.
Lake View (2-5, 1-1) got a pair of touchdown passes from quarterback Paxton Martin — a 73-yarder to Roy Garcia and a 41-yarder to J.D. Smith — the latter to pull within 14, 28-14, with 5:20 left in the half.

But Riddick got his third rushing TD just before the half, a 22-yarder, and Cooper exploded for 28 points in the third quarter to put the game away.
Martin completed 22-of-30 passes for 235 yards and no interceptions, but he was sacked four times for a loss of 34 yards.

“It was a great win for our kids,” Spradlin said. “I was real proud of how hard we played. I was real proud of the passion that we played with tonight and the fact that we didn’t make a lot of errors and mistakes.”
