Wyoming 37, Taylor 14


Cowboys are 2-0 in CHL

        Jeff Davis and Anthony Wright scored two touchdowns each but it was P.J. Pope who did the leg work for Wyoming.

        Pope ran for 172 yards on 28 carries to lead Wyoming to a 37-14 victory over host Taylor Friday.

        “The offensive line did a great job opening holes for me,” Pope said, “This is my fourth straight game rushing for over 100 yards.”

        Wyoming finished with 325 rushing yards.

        “We wanted to come out and establish the run,” Wyoming coach Bernie Barre said. “They loaded the line and that helped open things up for us.”

        Wyoming led 28-6 at halftime. The Cowboys, seeking their fourth straight CHL title, improved to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the league. Taylor is 3-1 and 1-1 in the league.

        Defensively, the Cowboys' mobile front four of Marvin Turner, Scott Guttman, Luke Jellison and Pat Dennis manhandled Taylor's undersized offensive line. Wyoming was able to stuff the run and pressure quarterback Chris Moerlein.

        “We've been playing good defense,” Barre said. “We have a lot of young players who are getting better with every game.”

        The Cowboys limited the Yellowjackets to one first down in the first half.

        Wyoming scored on its first possession of the game. Wright capped a five-play, 60-yard drive with a 19-yard touchdown run. The Cowboys pushed the lead to 14-0 on a Davis 5-yard run.

        Taylor kept it close with its defense. Mike Wilhelm picked up a fumbled and sprinted 60 yards for the score.

        Wyoming responded on its next drive. The Cowboys drove 66 yard before Davis plunged in from 3 yards.

        Eric Dantzler set up Wyoming's final score of the half. The junior defensive back picked off a pass near midfield with 1:57 remaining. Six plays later John Gale found Wright for a 13-yard touchdown pass.
