The Blugolds led at the end of the first quarter 7-0.
The second quarter belonged to the Cougars as they out scored the Blugolds 21-3. The Cougars got on the board early in the quarter when Adam Denning punched it in from eight yards out. Cougars quarterback Chris Bramell then snuck it in from two yards out.
