The 7/8 grade flag football team had their first game of the season on Monday, September 19 against Hillbrook. The young Cougars showed great grit and determination in competing against the more experienced Hillbrook squad. The Cougars took an early punt and David A returned it all the way down to the Hillbrook 8-yard line.
The Cougars had several chances but were unable to score as they turned it over on downs.
The defense was stout as Marc DP intercepted a ball in the first half to force a turnover. QB Wyatt J completed a couple of passes to David A and Finn G to move the team down the field. David A caught a pass in the endzone, but it was ruled that he had stepped out of bounds. Hillbrook was able to score on a short pass that broke into a long run to take an early 7-0 lead. Both defenses held the rest of the half as that was also the halftime score.
In the third quarter, Hillbrook was able to complete a pass into the endzone for another score to make it 14-0. That would be the final score as ACDS dropped their first game of the season, but came away with some highlights and several things they will be able to work on before the next game.
