RIVERVIEW – Durant improved to 9-0 by routing Riverview 57-27.

Durant (5-0 in 7A-8) had 159 total yards by halftime as running back Chris Atkins had 124 yards and a score in building a 29-10 lead.

Running back Zach Hooper took over in the second half, scoring on a 22-yard run and a 48-yard reception. Hooper finished with 146 total yards and three TDs.

The Cougars forced four fumbles and the special teams added a 15-yard blocked punt return for a TD.
