Cocks lose to Hooligans in 144.90-91.30 romp
There's no way around it, Cocks didn't do their job, at least compared to projections, as Hooligans cruised to a 144.90-91.30 win. Hooligans got out to a 7.00-point lead on Thursday behind A.J. Green (10 points) and never gave it back. Chris Godwin (8 Rec, 140 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) and Stefon Diggs (5 Rec, 40 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) carried the flag for Cocks in the loss. Hooligans (4-4) will look to earn another win against WarEagle, while Cocks (4-4) will face off against Negligent Discharges in an effort to get back on track.
