Cougars rack up 42, beating North Thurston

The Rams scored 28, but it wasn't enough to challenge an offense that's finally starting to roll.
After an opening week victory over Class 2A Black Hills, the Cougars (2-2 league, 4-3 overall) were roughed up by crosstown rival Olympia and league bully Lakes, then were shut out by Timberline in a game that featured little offense by Capital.

That wasn’t the case against the Rams.

The Cougars’ balanced offensive onslaught registered 445 total yards and scored 28 unanswered second-half points.

Three touchdowns came in the fourth quarter, as Capital was able to overcome a 21-14 halftime deficit.

“It’s just everyone knowing what their role is on this team and then going out and doing it,” Wall said. “Tonight we just stuck with the game plan and executed. Our defense was kind of forced to carry us during the first part of the season, but now our offense is starting to come around. We’re starting to understand it better.”
The worry around these parts was that Capital didn't have the endurance to play a full four quarters of physical football. We'll let those four unanswered touchdowns speak to that.

The Cougars face Yelm next, Friday, October 19.
