Unbeaten Lubbock Cooper pulls away from Wylie for 31-12 win

The Wylie football team hung with unbeaten Lubbock Cooper for the better part of two quarters Friday, but the Pirates hit a field goal just before halftime to go up 17-6 and scored the first two touchdowns of the second half on their way to a 31-12 win.

Cooper (9-0 overall, 4-0 District 3-5A Division II) outgained Wylie 443-124, but two fumbles and a couple of turnovers on downs allowed Wylie to hang around early.

The Pirates eventually found their footing, though, using a touchdown run from Jacob Dennis and a scoring pass from Brenden Mehl to Cole Carter to pull away in the third quarter.
