Cougars shut out Bulldogs 28-0

The Lawrence County Cougars (4-1) completed their three game homestand with a 28-0 win over the Franklin County Bulldogs (0-5) on Friday night in Monticello.

The Cougars went up 7-0 early in the game on a Perez Tyler touchdown run and then added to that in the second quarter when they blocked a Bulldog field goal attempt and ran it back for a touchdown. Senior Brian Bogan would get the scoop and score on the blocked kick.

Lawrence County led 14-0 at halftime.

In the third quarter the Cougars put the game away with a long Tae Cole touchdown run to put them up 21-0. Tyler would add a fourth quarter touchdown to cap the Cougar scoring.

It was another dominate defensive performance for the Cougars. In their three-game win streak over Raleigh, Bay High, and Franklin County the Cougars gave up a combined seven points.

Lawrence County is on the road next week as they travel to Collins.
