Cougars roll to 9-0
By Joe Joe Wright
Football on Thursday night is fun especially this past Thursday night. The Crisp County Cougars improved their record to an astounding 9-0 by beating Dougherty County 42-6 in Hugh Mills Stadium in Albany. The game was never close and the Trojans of Albany were completely out classed. The Cougars after a stumble got on track and scored first on a 46 yard Patrick Felton to TJ Ming bomb that with the “ Frosty”Brandon Thompson PAT made the score 7-0 Cougars. #6 Jamie” Hoss” Robinson took the ball and went off tackle on a 38 yard scamper that moved the Cougars to 14-0 after the Thompson PAT. Thompson was perfect on the night converting all six PAT attempts. Brandon Dowdells first interception was a pick 6 from 50 yards out and the Cougars were cruising at 21-0. “Dangerous” Dowdells second interception was almost a pick six but the offensive opponent had a good angle and tackled Dowdell at the 14, however the interception went for 61 yards. Robinson took the ball next and carried it in from 14 yards out. With the score 28-0 one would think a team might just take their lead into halftime. The Trojans however, fumbled over to Crisp with about 2 minutes to go in the first half and the Cougars quickly moved down the field when Patrick “ Nino” Felton rambled 18 yards up the middle and over people to score and the Cougars took a 35-0 lead into halftime.
The Cougars came out in the second half and after running one series with first string pulled everyone and allowed the underclassmen to get some playing time. The Cougars would give up one touchdown before driving down the field and scoring on an Adam Posey 18 scrambled. “ The guys are focused on one game at a time and taking care of business, getting a region championship and a home playoff game has always been our goal,” said Head Coach Shelton Felton. The score now stood at 42-6 and with the running clock that had been going since the 2nd half started the Cougars posted win number three in the region and number 9 for the season.
