Cougars grind out win, beat North Thurston 29-24

Down by two TDs, the Cougars were being shut down by a tough North Thurston defense, until Joe Tolman gathered it up and returned it to the domicile.
Following North Thurston's second touchdown in a span of just 28 seconds, Tolman returned the ensuing kickoff 93 yards to put Capital on the scoreboard and seemingly wake up the slumbering Cougars.

The defense soon rebounded and Riley Wall and the offense took care of the rest as the Cougars emerged with a 29-24 Olympic/Western Cascade League win over North Thurston at South Sound Stadium.

"We haven't been in that position all year, but we knew they were going to come to play," said Wall, who ran for 168 yards and two touchdowns. "We knew they were going to come ready, we just needed to step it up."
At last, the Cougars are in complete control of their own destiny in the OWL.

Up next: Yelm.
