PORTLAND — On a windy and cold night at Akins Wildcat Stadium in Portland, the Brazos Cougars defeated the Hebbronville Longhorns 42-15 in a Class 3A Division 2 area matchup.
After a failed onside kickoff attempt to begin the game, the Cougars held the Longhorns to a four-and-out by recovering a fumble on their own 35-yard-line.
Brazos then scored on a 41-yard touchdown run by running back Vinny Aguilar, beginning a 28-point unanswered run by the Cougars.
Following a second Hebbronville fumble, recovered by Cole Richardson on the Longhorns’ 36-yard line, Aguilar struck again on a 9-yard touchdown run, making it 14-0 Brazos at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter brought much the same, with the Cougars scoring on a 3-yard run by Aguilar for his third touchdown, followed by a 70-yard touchdown run by quarterback Bryson Bennett.
The Cougars went to halftime with a commanding 28-0 lead.
Hebbronville finally got on the board with a 3-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter.
