Cougars’ Cooper Mauls Jags for Six TD in Battle of the Big Cats
When two of the county’s top 4A schools are slated to go head-to-head in week 9, it’s expected to be one of the most compelling and competitive games of the year.
That wasn’t the case this past weekend, as Northwest fell 41-6 to bitter rival Quince Orchard in the cold and the rain at the Black Hole Friday night.
Both teams headed into the matchup with 7-1 records on the season and top-20 state rankings, but the Cougars hadn’t lost to the Jaguars in the regular season since 2013. They most recently beat the Jags in the second round of the playoffs last fall, en route to the Cougars’ second consecutive 4A championship game appearance.
