Courtland Cougars overpower KG Foxes

Last year, the Foxes left the Cougars with a 21-10 bitter taste of defeat on their competitive palate during the regular season. However, what a difference a year makes. From the opening turnover to the final Cougar touchdown, it was simply a dominating performance by Conference 22 powerhouse, Courtland.


“This is a loss that I think we needed, because it shows what we need to work on,” Foxes varsity football head coach Jeff Smith said. “If we don’t prepare ourselves mentally, good teams will continue to be consistent, and that’s what happened tonight.”

After a controversial Fox turnover on the opening play, the Cougars’ offense shifted into fifth gear with an eight-play 39-yard drive that featured the running attacks of George Cheetham and Anton Jenkins. Utilizing the blocking of their offensive line, the Cougars grounded out 37 yards on the ground before Cheetham bolted in from two yards out for the game’s first score.

The first quarter ended in a defensive stalemate. However, the Foxes began the second quarter with 69-yard drive that ended with a blocked field goal from linebacker Chase Timmons. The Cougars capitalized on the turnover with a 12-play drive that resulted in a Jenkins 20-yard touchdown.

On the opening drive of the third quarter, Jenkins continued to haunt the Foxes, as he completed a 59-yard drive with a 49-yard touchdown run over the right side of the Foxes’ line.

While the Foxes’ offense continued to sputter, the Cougars’ offense continued to heat up. With 1:15 left in the third quarter, Jenkins lunged in from two yards out for his third touchdown of the game.

As fate would have it, the Foxes avoided a shutout with a Jaylan Brinson five-yard touchdown with less than six minutes left in the game.

Jenkins scored his fourth touchdown of the game from a five-yard run into the interior of the Foxes’ line for a final 35-7 score.

With games against two formidable foes - Caroline and Chancellor - to finish the regular season out, Smith is more than optimistic that his team will learn from this experience. “We know as a coaching staff that Courtland is a very good team, but I don’t think they are 28 points better than us—we simply didn’t finish and execute,” Smith said.
