  • Cougars outmatched in every which way

    LAKEWOOD — If the Evergreen Cougars, off to a 3-1 start in 2010, ever wanted to know where they stood then the 3A Metro South conference opener with Elizabeth would be a good measuring stick. The Sept. 23 game at Trailblazer Stadium, if nothing else, would let Evergreen know if its early-season success had any weight to it. 

    The numbers alone may have told the story. The Cougars had, as follows:

    — 26 total yards.

    — One first down.

    — Four turnovers, all in the second quarter.
