The Franklin Cougars played a superior game on Friday night against the Andress Eagles, despite a slow offensive start.  Franklin’s high profile offense was non existent in the first quarter as they led 7-3 going into the second quarter, before they finally started pouring the points on by halftime. 

The Cougars led 21-3 at the half, their defense played solid the whole evening, holding the Eagles to only 3 points throughout the contest.  Andress had a chance to cut the Franklin lead to 14-10 right before halftime, with 2:23 remaining Eagles’ QB Ryan Metz was denied a touchdown on a 4th and 1 QB keeper at the goal line.  The Franklin defensive front four did a superior job of stopping Metz at the goal line, and hit him so hard that he was unable to play in the second half due to a possible concussion.

In the second half Franklin scored at will on Andress, after all the Cougars are averaging almost 40 points per game, and it was just a matter of time until they tore the Eagles to shreds.  In the end, Franklin’s displayed a well balanced offensive attack as QB Cameron Candelaria threw 3 touchdown passes, and the Cougars utilized 3 different running backs, by scoring 3 rushing TD’S.

With the win Franklin moves to 3-0 on the season and will open District 1-5A play next week against Socorro.  Coming into the game there was some debate as to whether Franklin or Montwood was the number one team in the city.  After Franklin’s dominant win against Andress, and Montwood’s loss at Smithson Valley, there is little doubt that the Cougars are the best team in the city.

As for Andress, they fell to 1-2 on the season and will be idle next week.  On a positive note, Andress Eagles stadium will be renamed Allan Sepkowitz Field on October 12 for homecoming.  This is quite an honor for the man who served as the Eagles’ head coach for 35 years.
