The Greenwood Gators came to town on Friday to spar with the Logan County Cougars at home. The Cougars could not slip away from the powerful bite of the (4-1) Gators. The Cougars (0-5) were defeated 48-12 under a full moon at Logan County High School.

On the Logan County side, quarterback Tyler Ezell ran 17 times for 41 yards against the strong defense of the Gators. Lorenzo Garcia rushed for 22 yards.

Ezell went 18 for 31 on the night with only one interception. He racked up 238 yards and threw two touchdown passes to Nick Blakemore. Blakemore led the Cougars with 81 receiving yards. Garcia caught six passes for 78 yards. Ezell also hooked up with Chandler Silvey for 31 yards. Robert Dancer caught one pass for 21 yards.

Logan County will host Hopkins County Central this Friday. The (3-2) Storm beat the Cougars by only one point in 2015.
