The Coronado Cougars Football Team lost a tough one against the Lewis-Palmer Rangers, 35-25, to bring their record to 1 and 1. The offense was the vocal point of this game for both teams with defense lacking, points went on the board quick. Different from the Cougars first game with defense carrying them to a win, the offense attempted to keep pace with the fast scoring Ranger offense but was unsuccessful. LaDarius Mays, 11, led the way for the Coronado offense with a marvelous 4 touchdowns, with one coming off an impressive punt return. Talking with star linebacker Deegan Foster, 12, on how the defense can improve from the game against Lewis-Palmer, he said “we have to be tougher on third down and stretch plays outside.” Containing the run is something the Cougars will work on after giving up a total of 168 yards rushing to four different rushers against Lewis-Palmer. Deegan also commented on the impressive offensive show from the Cougars saying, “I was extremely impressed with the offensive line.” The offensive line isn’t the most flashy position in football but is one of the most important. With the Cougars offensive line dominating the trenches it opens up holes for the running backs, and in LaDarius’ case allowing him to score four touchdowns, but also giving time for the quarterback to throw. Giving the quarterback time to throw adds a new diversity to the offense as he can can avoid mistakes and have the option to throw down the field. The Cougars take the field next on Friday, September 14, against the Mesa Ridge Grizzlies at 6:00 at Garry Berry, make sure to wear your red and gold!
