Shootout. Barn burner. Words that sometimes adequately describe a game where offense rules and defense drools. But what happened between Clark and Holmes was more like -well. there aren’t words for Cougar victory that kept playoff hopes alive. The Cougars defeated the Huskies 56-49 but the bigger story was Branden Valle’s 371 yds. of offense. On a night when the Cougars couldn’t give up, they didn’t an no one was a better example than the junior running back.
For more on this game, the Express News’ Lorne Chan captures it in this article.
