Cougars beat Blanchet, move on to state

Even though the offense never got rolling, Capital's defense stifled Bishop Blanchet, and the Cougars advanced to state with a 7-0 win Saturday afternoon.
Capital senior Riley Wall scored the game's only touchdown — a 7-yard run with 6 minutes, 20 seconds left in the third quarter. Wall finished with 162 yards on 26 carries. He also caught two passes for 17 yards.

"It wasn't the prettiest thing, but we won," Wall said. "It was frustrating, but we had to stay calm and keep on rolling and try to keep the defense off the field."

Despite the low-scoring outcome, Capital had 279 yards of offense compared to Blanchet's 142. The Cougars' defense held Cameron Cutter, the Braves' leading rusher all season, to just 64 yards on 18 carries. Cutter had no carry for more than 10 yards.
As for last year's nemesis, O'Dea? They beat Glacier Peak 47-14. (Glacier Peak doesn't even have a senior class.)

O'Dea unbeaten Lakes next. I'm guessing Lakes stays unbeaten.
