Your Columbia Cougars Football Team are 3-0 after a 19-0 win over Thunder Mountain! It was a dominating performance by the entire defense that propelled the team to victory. Noel Sampson with a blocked punt and Fredi Melchor-Rangle with an interception were out shined by all of the big hits. The offence added three scores.  Jay'Vonn Harper-Brooks ran for two touchdowns and Kamal Johnson went 70 yards to the house on a punt return with some fine blocking from T.J Lui and Daein Ashwood! It was a team victory and your Cougars are on a roll! Come out for the home game next Thursday to see a battle against Sumner!
