The Cougars (2-6) halted a five-game losing streak with the victory. ” We were focused and came ready to play today, ”  said a happy Cougar head coach Greg Allen. ” We limited our mistakes and Punky ( Foster) really  competed his tail off. Coach Chrisley called a heck of a game for us. ” He then added, ” It was great to see our kids excited and enjoy the win.”
