COLERAIN TWP., Ohio – Kelvin Cook scored three touchdowns, rushed for 171 yards, and threw two TDs as Colerain beat Sycamore, 40-22 at Cardinal Stadium on Friday.
“The kids played well – this is a good football team,” Colerain coach Tom Bolden said. “I’m really proud of them.”
Cook opened the scoring with a 63 yard touchdown run, giving the Cardinals a 7-0 lead within the first two minutes, and a safety extended the lead to nine.
“Just don’t stop,” said Cook about what he was thinking during his scoring run. “Fight until the end.”
Shortly after, sophomore wide receiver Dashaunte Jones followed with a 13-yard pass from Cook, and DeTuan Smith caught a 10-yard pass from Cook in the second quarter.
Cook ran in a 1-yard TD with 9:57 left in the third quarter, followed by a big 40-yard score on a run seven minutes later.
Next week Colerain will host Mason, the last home game for the Cardinals, who improved to 7-0. Sycamore (5-2) is at Fairfield.
