Cougars crush East Carteret

TARBORO — Barry Smith rushed for 141 yards on nine carries, while Devontrell Hyman and Marcus Williams scored two touchdowns a piece Friday night for the SouthWest Edgecombe Cougars as they routed East Carteret 49-7.

The Cougars (3-3) pounded out 450 totals yards of offense and held East Carteret to just 179 yards of total offense.

The Cougars scored 23 points in the first quarter and added 14 in the second to take a commanding 37-0 lead at halftime.

The Cougars added 12 more points in the third and gave up their only score of the game late in the fourth quarter.

Hyman rushed for 60 yards on just eight carries. This was his first game back after suffering an injury three weeks ago.

Williams added 102 yards on just six touches and Delvon Edmondson added a 31-yard TD run on his only carry of the game. Devonte Williams added a score for the Cougars and contributed 38 yards of offense on five carries.

Edmondson was huge for SouthWest on the defensive side of the ball. He had eight tackles, which three were sacks for a loss of 24 yards.

Quay Wooten added a score for the Cougars on the defensive side of the ball when he intercepted a pass and returned it 45 yards for a TD. Kalumbus Dickens also had an interception.

Coming into the game, coach Jonthan Cobb knew his team had to be ready on every play, because East Carteret liked to air the ball out.

Cobb was impressed with his teams performance on both sides of the ball.

SouthWest jumps into Eastern Plains Conference action Friday when they travel to Bethel to play the North Pitt Panthers.
