Cowboys take tough district loss at Garner 36-8

Pogge scores only touchdown

  While the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows varsity football team rode into Garner last Friday night with high expectations of knocking off the home Cardinals, they left smarting from a 36-8 loss that still leaves them with playoff chances in their three remaining games.

  The only Cowboy points for the night came in the opening quarter, courtesy of a long drive, which ended with Zach Pogge taking it in from three-yards out. A two-point conversion pass from Trenton Sann to Joel Haberman was good. “I was pleased with how we started the game,” said head coach Paul Hansch. “We took the kick and drove the field. A pass interference call on the Cardinals helped, along with a nice 30-yard run by Sann and a pass completion. We might be the only team to do that to them this year. We played a solid first half, and against a very good defensive team that I doubt has given up much if any rushing yards in their first three games.”
