Murray, UT - Womens Cougars put on fine display of fitness and athleticism to down a much experienced Salt Lake team last Saturday November 21, 2009. Cougars ran in 6 tries to Slug's one winning the game by 34 - 5. Cougars need to work hard in the tackle area and breakdowns in order to compete with the big programs such as Penn Sate, Brown, Army and Stanford. This game against these regular club sides who are made up of more experienced women, will help the cougars achieve this goal. The midfield partnership of Star Bollinger and Kristi Jackson who both had two tries each, worked well for the Cougars.
This is the last game of this semester, and as they move forward towards next Winter/Spring, Coach Tom Waqa will be looking to key senior players to step up and lead the team into the playoffs. The Cougars have done well with a 10 - 0 record for this semester, but a lot of work has to be done going into 2010 season.
Score: WCR 34 SL Slugs 5 Tries: Tressa 1, Kristi 2, Jaime 1, Star 2 Conversions: Becky 2
