Published

on

We​ ​were​ ​just​ ​outside​ ​the​ ​Kanawha​ ​Valley​ ​again​ ​on​ ​Friday​ ​night​ ​for​ ​another​ ​top​-ten​ ​matchup. The​ ​seventh​ ​ranked​ ​Capital​ ​Cougars​ ​traveled​ ​to​ ​Hurricane​ ​to​ ​take​ ​on​ ​the​ ​sixth​ ​ranked​ ​Hurricane Redskins.

The​ ​Redskins​ ​score​d ​first​ ​with​ ​a​ ​76​ ​yard​ ​touchdown​ ​pass​ ​from​ ​Nathan​ ​Roy​ ​to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​7-0​ ​lead. That​ ​would​ ​be​ ​the​ ​only​ ​touchdown​ ​the​ ​Redskins​ ​scored​ ​until​ ​late​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fourth.​ ​Capital​ ​scored​ ​on a​ ​4​ ​yard​ ​scoring​ ​run​ ​to​ ​tie​ ​the​ ​game​ ​up​ ​at​ ​7​ ​with​ ​about​ ​8​ ​minutes​ ​to​ ​go​ ​in​ ​the​ ​half.

Hurricane​ ​answered back​ ​with​ ​a​ ​field​ ​goal​ ​to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​10-7​ ​lead​ ​late​ ​in​ ​the​ ​first​ ​half.​ ​It​ ​didn’t​ ​take long​ ​for​ ​Capital​ ​to​ ​answer​ ​the​ ​Hurricane​ ​field​ ​goal​ ​but​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​three​ ​they​ ​answered​ ​with​ ​6​ ​to​ ​take a​ ​13-10​ ​lead.​ ​Hurricane​ ​punted​ ​back​ ​to​ ​Capital​ ​with​ ​a​ ​minute​ ​to​ ​go​ ​in​ ​the​ ​half.​ ​Hurricane​ ​forced​ ​a Capital​ ​fumble​ ​and​ ​recovered​ ​the​ ​ball​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Cougars​ ​15,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​drive​ ​stalled​ ​and​ ​Hurricane​ ​took advantage with a​ ​field​ ​goal.​ ​The​ ​Cougars​ ​would​ ​block​ ​the​ ​kick​ ​and​ ​return​ ​it​ ​85​ ​yards​ ​for​ ​a​ ​touchdown​ ​to extend​ ​their​ ​lead​ ​going​ ​into​ ​half​ ​20-10.

Capital​ ​came​ ​out​ ​firing​ ​in​ ​the​ ​second​ ​half​ ​and​ ​quarter back​ ​Kerry​ ​Martin​ ​threw​ ​a​ ​20​ ​yard​ ​strike​ ​to​ ​extend the​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​27-10.​ ​The​ ​Cougars​ ​would​ ​hold​ ​the​ ​Redskins​ ​scoreless​ ​in​ ​the​ ​third​ ​quarter​ ​to​ ​take their​ ​27-10​ ​lead​ ​into​ ​the​ ​fourth.

Capital​ ​striked​ ​quickly​ ​again​ ​setup​ ​by​ ​a​ ​37​ ​yard​ ​pass​ ​from​ ​Kerry​ ​Martin​. The Cougars plowed through with ​2 yard​ ​touchdown run​ ​to​ ​extend​ ​the​ ​Cougars​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​34-10.​ ​Hurricane​ ​would​ ​score​ ​late​ ​to​ ​make​ ​the​ ​final 34-16.

Another​ ​top​ ​ten​ ​matchup​ ​in​ ​the​ ​state​ ​and​ ​another​ ​not​ ​so​ ​close​ ​game.
