No football team can play well half the time and expect to win.

Coosa Christian is living proof of that, having played four good quarters and four not so good quarters (counting the jamboree against Gaston).

Against Winterboro, the Conquerors had three turnovers and several penalties in the first half. There were a lot of missed assignments, as well.

“We played a lot better in the second half,” coach Jason Touart said. “But by then it was too late and the lead was insurmountable. We simply laid an egg in the first half.”

Touart still feels his team is coming together, slowly but surely.

“I feel good about our progress – we’ve got to do the little things right,” he said. “But we’ve got to play a four-quarter game. That day is coming – I just hope it’s not too far away.”

Last week for Coosa, Randy Washington. Jr., rushed for 106 yards on 14 carries. 

Johnny Grizzard added 42 yards on 11 attempts and completed eight passes for 82 yards.

Jace Mills and Wesley Grizzard each had eight tackles, while Drake Burger and Mikey Green both had seven.
