Copperas Cove runs past Ellison 53-26

KILLEEN, Texas The Copperas Cove football team picked up a big road win at Ellison Thursday night, winning 53-26.

Copperas Cove scored the first 21 points of the game thanks to the arm and legs of Easton Simpson who had a big night under center for the Bulldawgs. Shontez Simmons also made a big play early, running for a 76 yard touchdown as a part of that fast start.

Ellison hung around for a while thanks in part to special teams play. Rian McKinley returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the first half. It's his third kickoff return TD of the season already.
