Though early in the season, something had to give as the AGWSR Cougars and North Tama Redhawks opened Class A Dist. 3 play in Traer. Friday night, that was Cougars. NT returned the opening kickoff 95 yards on a reverse for a touchdown and never put the bag of tricks down in a 44-7 win over AGWSR
It was 24-0 at the half. It was only that close because the Redhawks failed on their four point after attempts – one a fake kick. Devin McKinley started it with the return. Gabe Kopriva then connected on touchdown passes of 23 and 69 yards to Adam Greiner and Jared Dvorak respectively to make it 18 after the first quarter. Kopriva ran for another in the second.
