Grandview Wolves vs. Cherokee Trail Cougars
April 11, 2012
The fourth installment of the Denver Outlaws 2012 High School Game of the Week was a matchup between the Grandview Wolves and Cherokee Trail Cougars. Cherokee Trail was looking to continue their winning ways in the Centennial League, while Grandview hoped to pull off the upset.
The first half started off a bit slow, thanks to the 30 minute weather delay. The Cougars finally grabbed the first lead of the game and did not look back from there. Cherokee Trail capitalized on several Grandview turnovers to jump out to a 4-0 lead at the start of the 2nd quarter. The Cougars would continue the offensive pressure upping their lead to 8-2 at halftime. Both teams engaged in very physical play trying to gain momentum for each side. The second half saw Cherokee Trail have more opportunities to score and convert, making the lead 12-4. In the 4th quarter the Wolves would find an offensive grove scoring three goals, but by then it was too late. The Cougars held on to the lead they had all game winning 13-7.
The Denver Outlaws would like to congratulate the Cherokee Trail Cougars on their win and wish them continued success the rest of the season. You can check out the Cougars next game on April 18 at 5:30 pm versus Arapahoe at Legacy Stadium.
