Game Preview

Presented by:

The Cooper Cougars and Abilene High Eagles have been rivals ever since the school’s opening. The city of Abilene is split in support by a set of railroad tracks. Those to the north side of the railroad support Abilene, those to the south support Cooper. Each year, the two teams meet for one football game, known as the “Crosstown Showdown”. The game draws tens of thousands of people to Shotwell Stadium, and has filled the stadium to maximum capacity. The rivalry between the two schools goes back to 1961. Since then, Cooper leads the series with a 32-23-1 record versus Abilene. However, the Eagles were able to win last year’s game with a final score of 20-13.

Game Summary

Follow this page during the game to see content from the Scorestream app! Cooper got on the board early in the first quarter, blocking a 26-yard field goal attempt by Abilene and then went 80 yards on four plays for a second touchdown. Abilene barely managed to get on the board before half time, but they scored a second touch down in the third quarter and maintained good defense. This prevented Cooper from scoring any more points in the third quarter, leaving the score 14-16. But with less than 5 minutes in the fourth quarter, Noah Garcia (game MVP) ran 23 yards for an Abilene Cooper TD, sealing victory for his team.
