Cougars capture Rebel’s flag, 35-0

GREENSBORO- Fireworks filled the skies of Greensboro as the 9-0 Southern Academy Cougars took the field Friday night. They came on the field in the same manner as the Miami Hurricanes with the smoke flowing and music blaring in the background.

The Cougars running attack hasn’t missed a beat since the loss of Erik Montz as they sounded defeated the Chambers Academy Rebels 35-0. The Cougars ground game is comprised of Tyler Broussard, Andrew Hoggle, and Wallace Drury and as a unit they rushed for over 314 yards and three touchdowns on the night.

The Cougars opened the scoring in the game at 5:56 in the first quarter with a 39 yard interception return by Drury for a touchdown to make the score 6-0. Hoggle scored the next touchdown on a six-yard run with 44 seconds left in the first quarter to push the lead to 14-0.

Neither team could find the end zone in the second quarter, but the Cougars defense flexed its muscles, when a turnover led the Rebels knocking on the goal line looking to close the gap on the score board, but three tries from the five yard line produced nothing but pain for the Rebels.

Thomas Langham opened the scoring in the third quarter with a 17 yard run with 5:25 left on the clock to make the score 21-0. Langham threw a 17 yard touchdown pass to Hoggle with 10:37 left in the fourth quarter to make the score 28-0.

Drury closed the window on the night’s action with a 22 yard run with 2:40 in the fourth quarter to give the game the final score 35-0.
