Durant High School made an astounding opening statement with a 57-7 dismantling of Freedom High Sept. 1, at Freedom.
The Cougars fired on all cylinders, posting huge numbers in all three phases of the game. After going up 12-0 in the first quarter, Durant scored 32 points in the second quarter to go up 34-7 at the half. Two of those touchdowns resulted from stellar special teams play.
Cougars running back Jamarlon Hamilton had five touchdowns on the night.
Durant’s defense was just as tough, surrendering only one touchdown late in the second and disrupting Freedom’s wildcat scheme.
