Since that time, the Cougars went back on the losing end of things, falling 6-0 on Tuesday to Warren Central, then being beaten 5-0 on Thursday at home to the Ohio County Eagles.
The JV squad also was shut out by the visiting Eagles, 7-0
The Eagles kept the pressure on right from the start, keeping the ball in the Grayson County end for most of the first half. But for the first 10 minutes of the half, the Cougars were up to the task, turning the Eagles away time after time. But in the 10th minute of play, forward Travis Foreman won a ball in front of the Cougar goal and put a shot on goal that glanced off the crossbar and settled into the net to make it 1-0.
In the 14th minute of play, the Cougars had their best chance of the night to score. Alex Baxter took a ball down the right side, deep into the Eagle defense, then put a perfect crossing pass to the left of the goal, where Dustin Hayes was waiting. Hayes went high and got a head to the ball, but unfortunately it went right into the waiting arms of Eagle goalie Jonathan Wortham.
Foreman picked up his second goal of the game in the 21st minute when he won a ball about 20 yards out, maneuvered behind the defense and put the ball in to make it 2-0.
In the 31st minute of play, Ohio’s J. D. Nolte took a ball deep down the side and chipped a crossing pass to the goal mouth, where Foreman, once again, beat Cougar goalie Cody Woosley for his third goal of the night. The Eagles took that 3-0 lead into the half.
The Cougars had another scoring chance turned aside at the start of the second half. Damon Jones put a shot on goal that Wortham was just able to get his fingertips on to push it aside.
A minute later, Foreman was at it again. He dribbled down the left side, past several Cougar defenders, crossed over to the middle of the field, then rifled a shot past Woosley from about 20 yards out to make it 4-0.
The Eagles added one more goal in the 49th minute of play. Loc Salvador put a long shot on goal which Woosley was able to get both hands on, but he could not control it and the ball dribbled into the net to make it 5-0.
Neither team could dent the goal in the opening minutes, but the Eagles finally broke through in the 14th minute and when they did, the floodgates seemed to open.
Jonathan Bailey was able to get behind the Cougar defense and he took it in for the first goal of the night to make it 1-0. Bailey scored again two minutes later to make it 2-0.
In the 23rd minute, Rhett Baggerly put a hard shot on goal which clanged off the crossbar. The ball bounced right to Bailey, who had an open goal to shoot for and put it in to make it 3-0.
With about three minutes left in the first half, Baggerly won a ball near the sideline and took it right to the Cougar goal and put it in for a score and the Eagles took a 4-0 lead into the half.
Baggerly had two more goals in the second half, and T. J. Gledhill added another as the Eagles coasted to the win.
