Injuries plague Cougars at Hunting Hills

It was another rough game for the Stettler Cougars, who this past Saturday travelled to Hunting Hills.

It was another rough game for the Stettler Cougars, who this past Saturday travelled to Hunting Hills, only to be plagued byinjuries that led to a 45-24 loss.

The Oct. 3 game saw the Cougar’s offence moving the football with deft ability, but the team couldn’t sustain enough drivesto match Hunting Hills’ touchdowns.

“Both offence and defence played well, but injuries took their toll on us as a team,” head coach Mark Neitz said.

Danny Lesage got the Cougars on the board with a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Hunting Hills defence kept theCougars out of the end zone during the second quarter. In the third quarter, Brett Mercier made a 50-yard run, smashingthrough and evading the Hunting Hills defence for a second touchdown for the Cougars.

The third and final touchdown came from Steele Nichols on a 30-yard pass from quarterback Carson Neitz.

“We had a couple interceptions by our defensive backs to help keep us running in the second half,” coach Neitz said.

The Cougars next play at home next on Saturday, Oct. 10 against Lindsay Thurber.
