Football: Mariners fall to Cook County
Cook County's Josh Prom was responsible for five total touchdowns — three running the ball and two passing — in the Viking 50-7 rout of Silver Bay on Friday, Sept. 7.
Cook County got on the board early and often in the Mariners' home opener, scoring 20 first-quarter points and adding 14 more before halftime. Prom ran for a 41-yard touchdown and threw a 7-yard pass to Connor Somnis for another in the first quarter as the Vikings built a 20-0 lead. Ethan Sporn also scored a rushing touchdown.
Prom had a hand in both second-quarter scores, throwing a 43-yard touchdown pass to Jack Haussner and running in the ball from 1 yard out.
The lone bright spot for the Mariners was on the first play of the fourth quarter. Prom scored on a 5-yard run as time expired in the third quarter. On the ensuing kickoff, Mariner senior Peyton Westerlund returned the ball 65 yards for a touchdown.
Silver Bay (1-1) will take on North Woods (0-2) on Friday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. in Cook.
