On Nov. 4, the sixth-grade team took on Willows at Calvary for the league title. The game was tied at regulation and it took a double overtime before the Cougars scored a touchdown to win, 18-12.
The same day, the eighth-grade team played Willows at Crossroads School and in a hard-fought battle, won 14-12.
Coach Todd Tharen had had high praise for his team. “Every player contributed to the success of our undefeated season and championship,” he said. “These kids have a lot of heart, a strong work ethic, and are fierce competitors.”
Calvary’s eighth-grade flag football team had never won a championship before and it was particularly sweet. “It’s a proud day for the Cougars and I’m happy to have coached and watched them develop on and off the field through the past few years,” Tharen said.
