Cougars tromp Black Devils 50-30
By Brenda L. Shelkey, BHG News Service
Steady rains prior to Friday night’s game against the Hettinger Black Devils didn’t dampen the spirits of the Central McLean Cougars. It was a night of firsts for the Cougar season. They got their first win against the Black Devils, who had no place to go but home after the Cougars trounced them, 50-30 in a wet finale. It was also a first for the new crow’s nest sitting on the edge of the Turtle Lake-Mercer field. With only twenty minutes to spare before kick-off, workers pushed themselves to get the electricity hooked up for the announcers and the concession stand. Moments later the Cougars served up their first hot dog and then brought home their first win. Head coaches Kevin Dockter and Keith Sundquist have seen improvement in every area for the Cougars this season, but hadn’t sealed a win until Friday.
