The varsity Cougars took control of the Rappaport Ravens Feb. 8th, taking complete control of the game.

Rosebud-Lott struck first with two easy baskets. Rappaport couldn’t quite match what the Cougars were doing on offense and fell behind quickly. The Cougars had complete control of the game from start to finish. The Cougars led 35-11 by halftime.

During halftime, senior players Brady Hering, Haven Mortimer and Ty Stock were honored for their contributions to the program all four years.

The second half of the game played much like the first half. Hering caught a pass from a breakaway and dunked it for two. The Cougars out scored, out played and out worked the Ravens throughout the entire game. New additions to the team for the playoffs, Johnathan Adamez and Jose Perez, were able to enter the game and show their worth to the team as well. A good defensive effort by the Cougars put a cap on the game and sent the Ravens home with a loss. Final score was 65-25.

Leading scorers for the game were Hering with 14 points, Mortimer with 9 points and Nick Bravo with 8 points.

Cougars finished out the regular season strong against Moody, which tied the Cougars with Chilton for third place in district. The Pirates and Cougars faced off last Friday night in a seed game in order to determine placing for district and the playoffs. The Cougars loss and will be facing Riesel in bi-district action this Monday night.
