Football season is here! And the North 7th grade football team headed to Vista Ridge Middle School on Wednesday evening to take on the Panthers. So which big cat came out on top?
The B team kicked off the season and got the action started. Despite falling behind, they truly stayed engaged right to the end. And trailing by a score of 13-12, the defense stepped up at the right moment to tackle the Panthers QB in the end zone for a safety and a 14-13 VICTORY! The player of the game was Ethan Kim who scored both Cougar touchdowns; one with a pick 6 on defense and the other with a strong run winding through the Vista Ridge D on offense. What an exciting start to our 2022 season!
And then A team took the stage for the second game of the night. They found themselves playing from behind right from the start and saw several plays just not go their way. However, a long touchdown pass from Jack Wilmington to Brady Bowden ended the first half and provided a boost of energy. In the second half, the North defense held strong and did not allow the Panthers to score again. Despite a solid effort, the Cougars just couldn't close the gap and ended up on the wrong end of a 25-18 loss. Other highlights of the night included an interception by Ethan Walther on defense and 2 electrifying touchdown runs by Jacob Anene on offense. The Cougars will look to bounce back next week against Timberview Middle School in their home opener.
