Central High School loses grip on Tarrant

Published 12:00am Saturday, October 5, 2013

The Central High School of Coosa Cougars dropped their third straight game of the season, as they fell 44-19 at home to the Tarrant Wildcats in region play.
The Cougars (1-5, 1-3 Class 3A, Region 4) trailed 14-7 at halftime, but never could wrestle momentum from the Wildcats (3-3, 3-1 Class 3A, Region 4).
Richard Bell, head coach of Coosa, said the Cougars have been banged up as of late, but that have to keep fighting forward as the season crosses the halfway point.
“We’ve got a lot of injuries out here,” Bell said. “We are going to just run with some young boys and just keeping going and moving forward one day at a time.”
Rod Whetstone had two scores and Justin Thornton also scored for Coosa.
Coosa will return to action Friday at Montevallo in a region contest.
