February 2, 2014

It took the Cougars almost five minutes of the opening quarter to score a basket and they scored just four first quarter points.
But after that opening quarter Firth head coach Scott Adams got his team going as the Cougars scored 64 points in the final three quarters to earn a 68-19 victory.
