Brown scored his first touchdown in the opening quarter; added his second and third on a 60-yard rush and a 45-yard punt return, respectively, in the second 12 minutes; but he wasn’t done in the second as he added a 35-yarder just before halftime.

Brown also had a 70-yard touchdown return and an interception return for a score for 65 yards.

Teammate Trey Turner had two touchdowns on the night. He scored on runs of 5 and 54 yards.

The Cougars also did well on the extra point attempts, something that was lacking last week.

EA went 2-for-2 in the point after tries.

The Cougars will hit the road again next week as they visit Greenville, where EA plays Ft. Dale.
