Coweta finished with 436 total yards of attack, evenly distributed with 220 rushing yards and 216 in the air.
“We scored 42 points in the first half and we probably should have scored another if we wanted to,” Harper added. “We are aiming for something bigger. I don’t think we really took advantage of all of our opportunities. I was a little disappointed with this.
