Cougars wallop Warriors

By Suzanne Werre

The Central McLean Cougars got both their ground and running games going this past Friday night in Underwood when they lambasted their opponent, Standing Rock-Selfidge by the score of 59-7 on the gridiron.

The Cougars rushed for 211 yards and passed for 101, taking a 43-0 lead into the half-time break.

"It was a good game – it was fun," commented Cougar coach Kurt Ziebarth, adding that it was a team effort.

"As a team we played really well," he said. "And on top of that, our young guys got to play a good amount of time Friday night, and they stepped in and executed well."

Senior lineman David Senski agreed, giving a collective pat on the back to the players who stepped in when the varsity had already taken a big lead.

"I was really impressed with the freshman that played," he said. The rookie varsity players allowed just one touchdown, that coming in the fourth quarter on a 25-yard run.
