BRADENTON — Countryside dealt with a long bus ride, a weather delay and some uncharacteristic mistakes in its nondistrict game against Bradenton Southeast. The Cougars played strong on defense and got some inspired play from Robby Hicks en route to a 16-6 victory.

“We didn’t play as well as we could have but we won,” coach Jared Davis said. “It was sloppy, but a win is a win.”

The teams traded mistakes but the Cougars defense allowed them to win the field position game and capitalized as Martin Turowski made a 20-yard field goal to put the Cougars up 3-0.

The game stayed that way as the Cougars defense, which allowed 169 total yards, kept Southeast from crossing the 50-yard line.

The offense broke through in the third quarter as Hicks found Chris Ryan for a 25-yard touchdown.

Countryside mounted another drive in the fourth quarter, capped by a Dante Satcher scored from 8 yards for a 16-0 lead.

Southeast hit a desperation heave for a touchdown but the two-point try failed and the Cougars recovered the onside kick.
