The Cougars did all their scoring in the opening two periods, building an insurmountable 76-0 lead by the half.

When the opening kick of the third period hit the receiver, the clock ran unabated for the remained of the game via the “mercy rule.” A rule instituted to provide a running clock when one team took a 45-point lead over the other.

In the abbreviated second half, the Eagles scored a touchdown against the Cougar reserves.

It was the second week in a row St. Stephen’s gave up 70 points or more, the first came in opening weekend action against Lingle Ft. Laramie in a 70-0 decision.

For the fourth ranked Cougars, it was also the second week in a row that they put the mercy rule into action.
