EBEN - The Superior Central Cougars improved their record to 2-0 and handed the Bellaire Eagles their second straight defeat Friday, topping them 27-10.
Four players managed to find the end zone for the Cougars, as well as two defensive backs coming away with interceptions.
The Cougars scored on their opening drive with a 30-yard pass from Trevor Maki to Bryce Richard. Their defense was able to get the ball back into the hands of their offense, but Bellaire managed to get a safety on Superior Central after a botched snap.

Superior Central then capitalized on a drive that ended with a five-yard pass from Maki to Dan Steward, followed by another drive ending with four-yard touchdown run by Colton Gauthier.
Bellaire finally reached the end zone, and added the two-point conversion to make it 27-10.
Although they came away with a win, Cougars coach Chris Messano still saw room for improvement.
"Our passing game was just not there today," he said. "We struggled, so we had to rely heavily on the run. But looking back on it, we had four different players score, plus the two interceptions."
He also added that their defense has been playing great, only allowing 18 total points over the last two games.
The Cougars resume on Sept. 7 at home against Posen.
