Cowboys control game in blowout victory
By Michael Brooks
Despite having to play their game a day early, the Edna Cowboys dominated the Brazosport Exporters 42-3.
The Cowboys offense controlled the ball, and the clock, the entire game, and the defense had a shutout going until the Exporters kicked a field goal with a few minutes left in the game.
Brazosport returned the opening kick of the game to the Edna nine yard line, but the Cowboy defense showed they were going to be a force and ended up forcing the Exporters to attempt a field goal, which they missed. Brazosport would finish the first quarter with -22 yards offense.
Javonte Seymore started the scoring for the Cowboys with a 40 yard touchdown run.
With the Exporters pushed back in their own end zone, a bad snap on a punt attempt sailed out of the end zone for a safety and Edna took a 9-0 lead.
In the second quarter, Reese Orsak would find Logan Carrol for a touchdown reception, Kenny Haynes would score a rushing TD, Seymore would score his second TD of the night and the Cowboys would take a 29-0 lead into the half.
In the third quarter, Haynes would add another rushing TD and Carrol would add a TD, his second of the night in the fourth quarter.
The Cowboys moved to 3-0 on the season.
