The Grayson County Cougars traveled to Hancock County Friday night. Despite being surrounded by roaring Hornet fans, the Cougars remained unfazed and grabbed their first victory of the football season.

At 3:59 in the first quarter, Grayson’s Hunter Gibson made the first touchdown with a one-yard run. The first quarter ended at 7-0.

Halfway through the second quarter, Hancock’s Darian Clay made the Hornets' first touchdown with a 65-yard run, failing on the two-point conversion. With only two seconds remaining, Grayson’s Logan Raymer made a 37-yard field goal, ending the second quarter at 10-6.

In the third quarter, Hancock County received an unsportsmanlike penalty for a comment made to a referee. They suffered a 5-yard penalty, making way for Logan Kopp to bring home a one-yard run touchdown. They failed on the two-point conversion.

The fourth quarter saw Logan Kopp’s second touchdown with a three-yard run at 5:50, followed by a successful P.A.T. The final score: 23-6.

The Cougars will host Nelson County on Aug. 30.
