Cook stings Dougherty 38-13

ADEL — The Cook County Hornets rode a strong first half in its home opener to a 38-13 victory over the Trojans of Dougherty on Friday night.

With head coach Ken Cofer looking to pick up some momentum before heading into their region games, Cook came out of the locker room strong putting up 31 points in the first half.

The Hornets got the scoring started early in the first, punching in a touchdown on the ground in the first quarter.

Cook recovered a Trojan’s fumble on the ensuing kickoff and put the ball back in the end zone four plays later to take a 14-0 lead after the first quarter.

That 14-0 lead was doubled before Dougherty was finally able to strike back.

It took a bit of trickery, but a Trojan flea-flicker went for 40 yards and a score to put Dougherty on the board before halftime, however Cook was able to add a field goal still to take a 31-7 lead into the locker room.

The second half got a bit chippy as the Trojans were able to trim the Hornet’s lead to 31-13 margin by the start of the fourth quarter.

The final score of the game came late in the game with the outcome of the game already decided.

With time running down late in the fourth quarter, Whitt Campbell broke a 96 yard touchdown run to put the nail in Dougherty’s coffin.

The Cook Hornets won by a final score of 38-13.

Cook is off next week before traveling to Thomasville to take on the Bulldogs Sept. 27.
