Cougars suffer defeats
By TIM HANSON
The Central McLean Cougars suffered a pair of losses the past two weeks. The Cougars were defeated by the Richardton/Taylor/Hebron Raiders last week 32-8. This past week the Cougars were beaten by the Washburn Cardinals.
The Cougars’ playoff hopes are pretty slim. The Cougars will have to win their remaining two games, then have a couple of teams win and lose the right games.
