Two late 4th quarter touchdowns helped Corcoran rally for a season-opening 12-7 win at ESM on Friday night.

After a scoreless first half, Daniel Gilkey gave the Spartans the lead early in the third quarter.

Deviyne Bailey would pull the Cougars to within one, with a seven-yard touchdown run. Jeffrey Felton would come up with the play of the game, returning an interception for a touchdown late in the 4th quarter.

Corcoran (1-0) will hosts Whitesboro at 6 p.m. next Friday night. ESM (0-1) will look to bounce back at Auburn next Friday.
