Cougars keep it rolling
Hillsboro didn't get much of a chance to settle in Thursday night. The Canby Cougars struck fast and hard, building a nice early lead on their way to 42-6 league win Oct. 7.
"Not much to say, we jumped out early and got guys some rest," said coach Jimmy Joyce. "The defense played stout again. This is four weeks in a row of not allowing more than 14 points and we haven't allowed more than 20 points in a game all season."
The Cougars did most of their damage on the ground with Tyler Konold and Bryce Oliver running wild behind Canby's solid offensive line. Konold rushed eight times for 146 yards, while Oliver added 10 totes for 93 yards. But they weren't alone. Cam Lee chipped in with 43 yards on the ground and a touchdown.
Quarterback Mikey Gibson was 3 of 5 passing for 144 yards and touchdown throws to Joe Brauckmiller and Parker Ackerman.
Things now get a little more interesting as the Cougars will travel to Scappoose (2-1) this Saturday. At the moment it is a three-team race between Canby, Scappoose and Wilsonville (3-0). The Cougars finish the season with a home date against Wilsonville.
Those three teams are ranked fifth, eighth and first, respectively in the OSAA rankings.
