Cougars win football homecoming 42-26 over Dragons PDF Print E-mail

North Harrison made the home crowd happy Friday night, in winning a 42-26 tussle with the Silver Creek Dragons at Ramsey. The Cougars were celebrating their 2011 Football Homecoming.
It didn’t look as though it would be the cougars that would be doing the celebrating Friday night, though. The Dragons got off to a 2-0 start when they sacked the North Harrison quarterback in the end zone for a safety, and they added a pair of touchdowns in the first half. They scored off of a run by Zach Reynolds, and a 28 yard pass from Brooks Howell to Grant Meyer for the second touchdown. Neither extra point attempts were successful.
