Georgetown continues solid play with win against Rouse

Eagles stretch winning streak to four games

Posted

cFriday night was no different. 

The Eagles beat Rouse 49-6 at Birkelbach Field to extend their winning streak to four games. They have scored at least 48 points and allowed just 29 points over that span. It was the offense that stood out this week. 

“Scoring 49 points, I’m happy with that,” Georgetown head coach Jason Dean said. “I’m worried about getting the points on the boards and we did a good job.”

Georgetown quarterback Cooper Bell threw for 205 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 34 yards and another three scores. 

Caden Leggett led the pass catchers with three receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. Noah Drum had 40 receiving yards and Dylan Cahill had 50 yards and a touchdown. Erik Anderson carried the ball 10 times for 41 yards. 

Sophomore running back Mylan Mitchell led the Raiders offense with 50 yards on the ground and Tavian Tate had seven rushes for 31 yards. Quarterback Ethan Moore was 6-of-9 for 37 yards and a touchdown and Isaiah Poston caught seven passes for 37 yards. 

“Football is tough and physical and you have to do a lot of things right,” Rouse head cash Josh Mann said. “If you don’t, you get against a great team that does some things well and this is the result. We didn’t get them coached on those things.”

It was all Georgetown early on. Rouse went three-and-out on its first three drives of the game and the Eagles scored on two runs by Bell and a pass to Crombie the first three times they touched the ball. 

Bell threw his second touchdown of the night on the first play of the second quarter, hitting Leggett, his favorite target this season, for a 15-yard score. He ran for a 13-yard score with just over two minutes left in the half. 

But Rouse got on the board just before the break and capped off a seven-play, 56-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown pass from Moore to Poston. 

Georgetown scored on its second drive of the second half before putting in the backups for the last part of the third and all of the fourth quarters. 

After Moore started the game, Wingard came in for the second half and finished with 47 rushing yards and threw one interception. 

District 19-5A further split after another chaotic Friday night. Cedar Park and Hutto still atop the district standings with unblemished records and Georgetown has just one loss. The rest of the teams are fighting for the last spot all with one or two losses in district play. 

“We get in the weight room tomorrow and we’ll go back to work,” Mann said. “It’s never as bad as it seems and it’s never as good it was. The top three teams are good, and the rest of us are fighting for that fourth spot. We control what’s in front of us if we take care of some things.”

Rouse has a potentially key game against Connally next Friday night at Bible Stadium. The Eagles, which suffered their only loss of the district year to Hutto, face off with Cedar Park at Gupton on Friday night.

“We’re going to enjoy this one,” Dean said. “Our guys prepared really hard getting ready this week and we’re going to enjoy this one tonight and evaluate them in the morning and start getting ready for Cedar Park.”
