The Langley Middle School Cougars are coming off a bye week and head into this week's contest with Granite Falls buoyed by a 2-0 record this season which extends their winning streak to seven games dating back to last year.

Their first victory came at Lakewood as they thumped the "other Cougars" 54-24.

The offensive onslaught was anchored by a persistent running attack that saw Jordan Thornsley and Jon Poolman both get into the end zone multiple times. The game was put away on a 15-yard strike from Hunter Rawls to Adam West. Placekicker Kyle West converted five extra points for the win.

The second victory came against a superb squad from Tolt Middle School; good conditioning and mental toughness was the difference in this ball game as the Cougars won 22-12.

Poolman, Thornsley and Danny Zuver contributed rushing touchdowns.

The Cougar line, anchored by Danen Hagglund, Joe Kinser, Simone Hamilton, Kevin Mcdonald, Taylor Herring and Chris Monell, was tough as nails throughout, opening holes and stopping the Tolt attack.

"Dakota Hanna's fourth quarter interception in the end zone sealed the deal," Coach Bill Patterson noted.

The Cougars host the Granite Falls Tigers at 3:45 p.m., tomorrow at Waterman Field.
