At Cascade:

  It was a night the defense  fueled the offense, the Comet defense  stopped the Cougars twice in the red zone, intercepted two passes, recovered two fumbles, and held the Cougars to 201 yds of offense on 11- 1st downs in  an 19-7 win over Cascade.

 The 3rd-ranked Comets move to 9-0 (RPI 2nd in Class 2A) and are District #4 Champions for the second time in three years, a play-off team for the fifth year in a row, 10 times in school history.

 On offense senior running back Hunter Clasen returned from an ankle injury  ( he is a difference maker) he  rambled for three touchdowns on 33-rushes 188-yds, It was another outstanding effort from  the  offensive line.

 His presence on defense also made a huge impact on the game;  8-tackles, 6-solo, 2-sacks, 3 TFL.

 Senior quarterback Lucus Tennant added a 6-12,  103 yd passing night (three big completions on 3rd and long) he added  48-yds on 13 carries on the ground.

 Trevor Hager, Trey Daugherty and Harrison Haynes each caught the big   third down passes to keep Comet  drives alive.

    The Cougars  points came after and exchange of fumbles near the goal line resulting in the defense scoring their only points to cut the deficit to 13-7.

 The Comets answered with Clasen’s 32yd dash,  his third score to open up  a two score lead at 19-7. The try for two came up short.

 Max Jackson and  Jacob Waller ended Cougar drives with interceptions.  Ben Parker recovered a Cougar fumble  ending a Cougar  scoring drive on the three yd line.
