Slow Start Hurt MTCS in Their Attempt to Take Down USJ


The MTCS Cougars were the road team in round two as they traveled to play against University School of Jackson. Both MTCS and USJ had a bye week in the first round due to their opponents having a COVID cancellation.

MTCS battled, but they could not pull of the upset. They fell to USJ 49-14.

USJ scored the first touchdown of the game with about five minutes remaining in the first quarter. They led 7-0.

Then just before the end of the first quarter, USJ scored again on a short rushing touchdown. They led 14-0.

In the second quarter, USJ caught another touchdown pass to go up 21-0 with just over a minute before halftime. That was apparently too much time to give MTCS.

Eli Wilson of MTCS scored on a sixty-one yard touchdown to get MTCS on the board and cut the deficit to 21-7.

In the second half, it would be all USJ. USJ marched down the field and added to their lead with a touchdown to make it 28-7. Later in the third, they added another touchdown pass to go up 35-7.

MTCS showed a lot of heart though as they continued to play though the final whistle. They scored on a Jonathan Burns touchdown grab from Aden Hooper late in the third quarter. MTCS trailed 35-14.

The fourth quarter would see two touchdowns both by USJ to bring the score to 49-14. MTCS fought hard, but in the end fell short and they lost to USJ.
