Friday night round up

FB 200x200 SPORTS

It had been since 2005 that the Cloverdale Clovers football team won three straight games and they had the chance to do it Friday night. On the other side the North Putnam Cougars were coming home for the first time since that dreadful 50-0 loss to Monrovia last year in the sectional championship. They had since come off of a 3-and-1 road trip.

Both teams had high expectations and the Cougar crowd had been waiting all year to watch their team on their field. They got what they had been waiting for and shutout the Clovers 55-0. Forty-one of those points game in the first half before a running clock was imposed in the second half.

The Cougar defense was stunning all night forcing the Clovers to a loss of 35 yards and only one first down that was gained off of a facemask penalty in the first half. They forced four Clover turnovers, which two of them were returned for touchdowns and a third one led to a touchdown.
