In the end it was the Wildcats who showed off their offensive fireworks against the Cougars. After four quarters the Wildcats spoiled the homecoming festivities with handing the Cougars a 55-18 loss.
The opening drive by the Wildcats showed off what they were going to do. They pounded the ball all the way down the field to take an early 7-0 lead. The Cougars couldn't respond on their opening possession and gave the ball back to the Wildcats and their punishing ground attack. The Wildcats controlled the point of attack and marched down the field to put them up 14-0. On their second possession the Cougars started to get their offense going and flashed some fireworks of their own. On a critical fourth down play Justin Rone scrambled out of the pocket and dashed into the end zone to cut into the lead 14-6.
But the Wildcats had no trouble moving down the field against an increasingly tired defense and put another touchdown on the scoreboard to make it 21-6. The Cougars offense got a huge spark by Aratan Martin. He returned the kickoff deep into the Wildcats territory and then took a screen pass the rest of the way to once again cut the lead down 21-12.
That would be as close as the Wildcats would allow it to get.
Edmonson continued to overpower the Cougars at the line and easily moved down the field time and time again before the half. At half time the Wildcats held a very comfortable 34-12 lead. All this was done on the ground as the Wildcat's quarterback hadn't attempted a pass.
The Wildcats would score 27 unanswered points before the Cougars got into range to add a 3 point field goal to make it 48-15. The Wildcats hammered home another score and the Cougars added another field goal to make it 55-18 as the Wildcats ran out the rest of the clock.
With the loss the Cougar's record falls to 3-3 after a fast 3-1 start. The Cougars allowed 570 yards on the ground and gave up 8 touchdowns to the Wildcats ground attack. LCHS will have to rebound and quickly with the #4 ranked team in the state (according to MaxPrep) Bowling Green Purples coming to town next week.
