Friday night the Cowboys took on the Highland Park Scots. It was a tough match-up, but one the Cowboys were ready to fight for and win. The defense came out of the gate swinging and forced the Scots to punt the ball early. Unfortunately, the Cowboys’ offense was slow to get rolling and couldn’t keep their defense off the field. Going into the half, the Scots went up by two scores. In the second half, the offense got rolling. The offense took up almost 10 minutes on a single drive, that took 18 plays to score. The kick-off team tried recovering a quick onside kick, but were unsuccessful. The Scots were able to run most of the fourth quarter clock, leaving under two minutes for the Cowboys to comeback for the win. In the end, the team fought hard, but fell short of victory, 13-28
Offensively, QB Jack Fishpaw, threw 12-27 for a total of 132 yards and one touchdown. He also ran for 77 yards and rushed for one touchdown. WR Dylan Nelson, made eight catches for 89 yards.
Defensively, Jake Roemer led the team with 9 solo tackles, followed by Isaiah Nichols with eight. Nichols also had two pass break-ups that helped to fend off the Scots offense.
