Coral Reef 46, Cooper City 0

Coral Reef shuts out Cooper City


Special to the Miami Herald

The Barracudas dominated Cooper City to pick up their second win of the season, taking advantage of a barrage of Cowboy turnovers in their shutout win at Southridge.

Of the 46 points scored by the Barracudas, 26 came off all four Cooper City turnovers.

Coral Reef’s Treshez Ellzey created problems for the Cowboys on both sides of the ball. At running back, he scored on a 5-yard run after Cooper City fumbled a punt attempt on its first possession. Less than a minute later, at linebacker, Ellzey scooped up a fumble and returned it 12 yards for another touchdown.

In the second quarter, Ellzey struck again – this time with a 15-yard rushing touchdown – to put the Barracudas ahead 34-0 at the half as Coral Reef’s defense continued to suffocate the Cowboys’ offense.

"He’s one of the better athletes around," Coral Reef coach Chevas Clements said of Ellzey.
