NEWPORT—Despite gaining 33 more yards than Morristown East and
holding the third-leading rusher in the district to 69 yards of rushing, the Cocke County High
School Fighting Cocks found themselves on the wrong end of a lopsided score.
despite gaining only 144 yards of total offense, took advantage of four Cocke County turnovers and
scored 42 unanswered points on their way to a 49-6 victory at Larry Williams Stadium on Friday
night. A pair of late first half turnovers by Cocke County (1-6, 0-4) led to a pair of defensive
scores by the Hurricanes, that turned a 14-6 margin into 28-6 at halftime.
“I think the big
point was turnovers,” Cocke County coach Caleb Slover said. “We killed ourselves with
“We have the fumble-6 and then we throw the pick-6,” Slover said. “The second and
third quarters just got us right there.”
