By the time Isabella’s defense figured out how to stop Coosa-Central on Friday, the visiting Cougars had built a 48-14 lead and put the game away.

Coosa scored on all six of its first-half possessions during the game, which was Isabella’s homecoming.

Caley Booth being crowned queen at halftime was undoubtedly the highlight of the night for the Isabella fans, though the Mustangs did come up with a few stops in the second half.

In the first half, Coosa scored on a 14-yard run by Raymond Graham, a 63-yard run by Cedarius Askew, a 28-yard pass from Graham to David McKinney following a lost fumble on a kickoff, a 44-yard run by Roriguez Whetstone and a 10-yard run by Graham.

Isabella quarterback Jaqarise Stacy got the Mustangs on the board when he put his head down and plowed into the end zone on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line.

Austin Brasher lined up as the holder for the point after but instead took the snap, stood up and ran in a two-point conversion.

Isabella’s other first-half score came on a 31-yard pass from Stacy to James Patterson.

Coosa’s Graham added another touchdown run, from 38 yards out, with 4:46 remaining in the third quarter.

The final score of the game was Stacy’s 10-yard run.

Brasher was one of the few Mustangs who was able to hold onto Graham, but a fourth-quarter tackle of the quarterback forced a turnover on downs and helped keep the visitors out of the end zone in the period.
