Senior quarterback Michael Harris ripped apart the Cougars’ defense in the first half, throwing for 312 yards and three touchdowns on 10-of-18 passing.

Junior receiver Cavin Ridley torched Coconut Creek’s secondary, finishing with 236 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Ridley also ran for two touchdowns.

Sophomore Jerry Jeudy ended any chance of an upset by Coconut Creek with a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown to put Monarch up 35-6 on the last play of the first half.
