LYNNVILLE ---- —
The explosive offense of the Braves, which is led by Grannan couldn’t find its footing all night. Tecumseh scored two touchdowns, but were forced into four turnovers by the Cougar defense.
“You got to give a shout out to the coaches, they really had us prepared for tonight,” said senior Brady Helms. “We were ready for it. We came out the first day of the week on defending the pass and that’s what we did tonight. “
With a 22-13 lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter, Lengacher scored his third and final rushing touchdown to put the icing on a 17-point victory. The road won’t get any easier for the Cougars next week as they travel to North Central (Farmersburg). The Thunderbirds beat the Cougars 42-18 in week two last year.
“We know we got our hands full next week with North Central,” Helms said. “Defense wins championships and I think we’re headed in the right direction.”
