CCHS drops Homecoming game


By: Robert Driggers

The Colleton County Cougars were looking for win number two this season as they hosted the Woodland High Wolverines during homecoming. Unfortunately, the Wolverines would ruin homecoming plans for the Cougars.

The Wolverines proved to be a formidable opponent as they defeated the Cougars 49-9. The team scored on all of their six possessions in the first half, in route to a commanding 42-9 half-time score. They would only score one time in the second half thanks in part to a running clock.

Woodland scored on a 25-yard run with 9:07 left in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead. On their next possession the Wolverines added a 10-yard touchdown with 7:03 left in the first quarter, making the score 14-0.

After a Cougar fumble on their own 47, the Wolverines needed just six plays to score on a 20-yard touchdown run with 10:54 left in the second quarter. This brought the score to 21-0.

The Cougars answered on their next possession with a 67-yard touchdown pass from Mykeen Gant to Camarion Bryant with 9:53 left in the second quarter, making the score 21-6.

The Wolverines answered on a 24-yard touchdown pass with 8:51 left in the second quarter, bringing the score to 28-6. They added two touchdown passes of 9 and 33 yards to make the score 42-9.

CCHS added a 28-yard field goal from Caleb Stallings to complete scoring for the Cougars.

Woodland managed to accumulate 328 yards of total offense, with a balance attack of 174 rushing yards and another 154 yards passing.

Colleton was held to 155 yards of total offense. Cameron Bryant had two catches for 76 yards and a touchdown, while Darien Stephens added two catches for 36 yards. Nick Williams had one catch for 20 yards.

The Cougars will start region play on Friday night when they host James Island. Kick-off is at 7:30.

The Colleton County Cougar J.V. Team won their second game of the year, defeating Woodland by a score of 28-8. The Cougars scored two touchdowns courtesy of Cameron Grayson and one each from Rodney Wilder and Levi Slighter.
