Alexander Central survived a comeback by Watauga last Friday night and produced one of their own beating the Pioneers 39-33 at Cougar Stadium. It was game to remember in a lot of ways including some outstanding individual performances.
Fro the second straight game The Custom Framecrafters- B86 Cougar of the Week recognizes a pair of Cougars.
Senior Quarterback Gunnar Anderson was on target with his arm completing 11 of 13 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns including the game winner with 1:27 remaining. Anderson also rushed for 70 yards on 10 carries and a score.
Junior Lyndon Strickland had a breakout night on defense. He led the Cougars with 10 tackles including 1.5 tackles for loss. One of his stops was crucial keeping a Watauga ball carrier from getting out of bounds and stopping the clock as the Pioneers were trying to drive for a game winning score. Strickland batted down two Watauga pass attempts as well .
Congratulations to Gunnar Anderson and Lyndon Strickland, the Custom Framecrafters-B86 Cougars of the Week !
