Head coach James Koop said Friday’s season opener in Ackley was summed up in one third quarter play. Turkey Valley had just scored to make it 34-6 in their favor and kicked off to his AGWSR Cougars. The ball was neither caught nor picked up, basically turning it in to a 40-yard onside kick that was recovered by the Trojans. That eventually led to a fourth quarter score.
And just like that one play some summed what he saw on the field, one word summed up his feelings about what ended up being a 56-6 loss - befuddled.
