Cooper, Hillhouse run past Wilbur Cross

NEW HAVEN — Sophomore Harold Cooper rushed 13 times for 179 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Hillhouse football team to a 48-12 victory over rival Wilbur Cross Thursday at Bowen Field.

The Academics (7-3), though, fell short of qualifying for a Class M state playoff berth. Hillhouse, the defending champion in that class, finished at No. 10 in the playoff rankings. The top 8 teams advanced to the quarterfinals.

Cooper scored on touchdowns runs of 12, 54, 30 and 65 yards, and was named his team’s offensive most valuable player.

Andre Anderson finished with 86 yards on six carries and one touchdown for the Academics.

Jaylin Fuller caught a 29-yard touchdown pass from A.J. Consiglio for the Governors (1-9), while Joshua Dellacruz scored on a 1-yard run.
