Senior QB Russell Morrison threw for 147 yards and rushed for 117 and two TDs to lead the Cougars to a 34-7 win over Morton Ranch in 19-6A district play Friday at Rhodes Stadium. Cinco took control early and led by 17 points at halftime, then cruised in the second half behind a dominating defense that forced five fumbles and four turnovers. The win keeps the varsity undefeated on the season including a 2-0 mark in district play after the district-opening win a week ago over Mayde Creek.

Next action for the Cougs is Thursday night with a 6:30 p.m. kickoff at Rhodes.
