The Tide flowed into Baker and was evaporated by East Hardy as the Cougars turned up the heat creating a 49-0 drought last Saturday afternoon.
The Cougars (3-2) pummeled Sherman (0-6) with a 41-0 halftime lead and the defense refused to break the entire contest in just the second meeting between these teams (2017).
“I’m extremely proud of our guys. Not because of what is on the scoreboard, but because they came into practice treating this opponent like a championship game. They prepared all week mentally that way for today.
I am proud of them preparing and playing East Hardy Football. We were very explosive with Christian Dove back there at quarterback and proud of him. I am proud of Cole Pusl stepping up at receiver and he caught a touchdown pass today. I think we are moving in the right direction. We didn’t even talk to our defense, it is assumed they play like this every week,” East Hardy coach Devon Orndorff remarked.
The Cougars look for their fourth straight win this week against Tucker County during Homecoming.
