It was nasty, it was wet and the fall air was out for homecoming at the Cougar Den and it was also BEAUTIFUL as the big cats ate a supper of Indian liver and drank up Albany’s  Kool-aid all night.
In first quarter action Cedarius Snead broke out on a 20 yard scamper, the PAT was no good and the cats were up 6-0. After an Albany fumble the Cougars got the ball and hit pay dirt on a 28 yard toss from Patrick Felton to Joseph Stokes the PAT by Brandon Thompson was good and the Cougars were sitting on a 13-0 lead. The Cougars coughed up the ball but were able to hold Albany and force a punt each time. However the Indian luck didn’t hold out and Crisp County capitalized on Albany’s turnovers. In the 2nd quarter Josh Powell hit Brandon Dowdell streaking across the middle and Dowdell made a couple of moves and easily out raced the Indians to the end zone on a 64 yard touchdown. The PAT by Thompson was good and the score was 20-0.
However, with 3 minutes to go in the half the Cougars recovered another fumble and after a bomb from Felton to Travis Green that covered 50 yards.The Cougars were again knocking at the door, when Aquarion Coley pushed in from 4 yards out to score again for the Cougars. The PAT by Thompson was good and at half-time the Cats were up 27-0. In the second half Crisp County scored one more time on a 37 yard strike from Felton to Damius Ward and the PAT was good and the final score was Crisp County 34 and Albany 0.” We won a game we are suppose to win, now we need to win some we have not been winning,” said Head Coach Shelton Felton. “The boys played hard and took the game to them.”
With this win Crisp County improves to 2-4 overall and 2-2 in region play. Next up for the Cougars is a trip to Cairo next Friday night.
