For nearly 39 minutes, Friday night’s Homecoming battle for the Sandy Creek Cougars looked as if the Cougars were going to be roughed up in the trenches for a second straight week.
The tune up for this weeks C-2 District Cross Country meet, to be held in Fairbury came with the running of the 2011 Southern Nebraska Conference meet at the Superior Country Club Thursday, Oct. 6.
Down 21-0 with seconds remaining in the first half, the Sandy Creek Cougars were one yard away from their first score of the game with a fresh set of downs.
Coming off a late game win over the Sutton Mustangs just a week prior, Sandy Creek hit the field for their second home game of the season, entertaining the Gibbon Buffaloes in C1-6 District action.
The battle tested Lady Cougars took to the road once again Saturday, headed west to challenge the field at the Adams Central Invite.
