Cougars Defeated By Russell Academy

“We’re not playing good football,” Cougar Coach Charlie Driskell said.
“The kids are giving everything they have. I don’t know if it’s the
newness of playing 8-man football, but we’re not prepared when the ball
game starts. That’s my fault.”

The Calhoun Academy Cougars fell to 0-2 on the season after a 38-6 loss to Russell Academy near Meridian.
“We’re not playing good football,” Cougar Coach Charlie Driskell said. “The kids are giving everything they have. I don’t know if it’s the newness of playing 8-man football, but we’re not prepared when the ball game starts. That’s my fault.”
The Cougars failed to gain a first down in the opening half. They accumulated nine in the second half.
Two passes from Tyler Blount to Alan Woodcock set up the lone score of the night for the Cougars – a touchdown run by Steven Jackson.
“We should have scored three times,” Driskell said.
He praised the offensive play of Woodcock and the defensive play of Danny Norman, but said his team has a long way to go.
“Team continuity is not there yet,” Driskell said.
The Cougars will return home this week for the debut of 8-man football in front of the home fans as Calhoun host Immanuel Christian. Immanuel has only 12 players on their roster, but is still attempting to play 11-man football. They lost 53-10 to Tri-County last week. They suffered a 60-point defeat at the hands of Newton the opening week.
