The road to end the football team’s 16 game losing streak made its latest stop at The Colony Friday night, but it wasn’t meant to be as the Cougars beat the Redhawks 47-3 in District 5-5A play.

We are always looking for improvement in multiple areas and we thought we made some strides in all phases,” head coach Matt Swinnea said. “We had good effort and were very pleased with our ability to run the football with a little more consistency. Both Jonathan Bone and Will Ashmore played well and our young offensive line was often able to perform well against much bigger and experienced defensive front.  Defensively, we thought Prince Ugoh and Daniel Ajayi stood out with their performances.”

Between Bone and Ashmore, the Redhawks nearly gained as many yards on the ground as the Cougars (187-142), but three turnovers were too much to overcome. 

“Not breaking our losing streak is tough but it was a good effort all around from everyone,” senior Grayson Clountz said. “We trusted in each others ability to show out on the field.”
