FIRTH â€” Starting the season 2-0, the Firth Cougars sought to slay the Malad Dragons. With the running forces of Mitch Orme and Connor Montgomery for the Cougars and the passing threat of Griffin Green for the Dragons, the contrasting styles took center stage. Head
Coach Keith Drake before the game was asked what he believed were the keys to winning. â€śStop the long pass.â€ť Simple yet to the point, he went on to make the points that the Malad had very large offensive tackles and that Green through the ball well. â€śPutting pressure on the QB is going to be very important to help defend with the deep pass. Firth went on to do exactly that, defend the deep pass and force Green to throw short most of the night.
