The AGWSR Cougars (14-8) had owned the BCLUW Comets (15-9) over their last 30 match-ups. The Cougars held a 23-7 edge, including two this season by 49-30 and 48-31 scores, heading into Friday’s Class 1A Region 1 semifinal in Ackley.
So maybe the Cougar girls were a little complacent. Or maybe they were looking ahead to a possible finals match-up with top-ranked Algona Bishop Garrigan. Or maybe it was something else that led to an untimely letdown that allowed the Comets to take a 40-36 win.
