Logan County has come out of the gate and not let up from the gas pedal after two weeks of football. The Cougars got a big 57-0 win in the opening week against Butler County. In week two, Coach Todd Adler's squad embarrassed Muhlenberg County in Greenville, 56-18. The 113 points through two weeks leads the region.

On Friday night, Logan County traveled up the road to Greenville to fight the Mustangs of Muhlenberg County. The Cougars did not waste much time before lighting up the scoreboard. Tyler Ezell put the first six spot on the board with a six-yard run to cap Logan's opening drive. Multi-sport kicker, Lucas Arevalo effortlessly added the point after. Arevalo would end up with eight points before the game was over.

The Mustangs answered back with a short run by the quarterback, who also attempted the extra point kick without success. The score was 7-6 before Logan County added two more rushing scores before the end of the quarter. Gary Hardy got his first touchdown of the game to make it 14-6. Dontavius Blann ran a beautiful 25 yards for a touchdown, shedding tackles the whole way. The score was 21-6 going into the second.

Muhlenberg got another rushing touchdown from the quarterback just two minutes into the second quarter. Ezell connected with Chandler Silvey at the 7:26 mark to make it 28-12.

Just as time expired in the half, Logan County quarterback Tyler Ezell tossed a perfect pass to the side of the end zone for the first reception and touchdown of Rooster Woodard's Cougar career. Logan County celebrated all the way across the field in front of a silent Muhlenberg crowd at halftime. The score was 35-12 at that point.

The second half belonged to the ground game. Ezell skipped 14 yards into the paint for his second score. Maurice Gordon rattled off a strong 41-yard run to the end zone. Gary Hardy then found the promised land once again with a 49-yard gallop.

The final score of 56-18 gives the Cougars 113 total points after two games. Ezell has already thrown for 431 yards this season. Hardy has 210 yards after two weeks of play.
