Coogs claim homecoming win

Tomball used a late surge to cruise past Mayde Creek 35-7 Friday night and send the homecoming crowd home happy.

Mayde Creek held a 7-0 lead at the half and the Cougars were tied at 7-7 entering the fourth quarter, but turned on the jets and rolled up four more touchdowns in a hurry.

Mykheal Taylor started the scoring with a third-quarter touchdown run of 42 yards, and added two more scores on runs of 12 and 15 yards. Harrison Heim also scored after recovering a Mayde Creek fumble, and Chris Saenz added a 38-yard touchdown run in the final two minutes. Heim was good on his five extra point attempts.

Taylor completed five of eight passes for 46 yards, while Mason Jones – who was injured in last week’s game – came in to throw a single pass, a completion for 22 yards.

At halftime, Homecoming King Percy Alford was on hand as Morgan Koteras was announced as the 2014 Homecoming Queen. Look for photos early this week on
