GAITHERSBURG — In a battle of two rivals, the Quince Orchard Cougars nabbed the 4A West regional championship title after dispatching the Northwest Jaguars 31-20.
The game heated up an otherwise frigid Friday night, and showed how each team prepared for this game.
“Ultimately they capitalized on some mistakes we made. We made too many mistakes, got penalties that were huge penalties and they capitalized and we didn’t. We made a few too many mistakes in the end,” said Jaguars head coach Mike Neubeiser.
The Cougars were coming off of a victory high after annihilating the Einstein Titans 62-0 last week, while the Jaguars arrived to this game through sheer willpower.
