After a hard fought game and an amazing halftime show, the Cougars ended years of frustration by finally beating TMHS 38-35.

“I knew we where going to win when Tomball Memorial missed their field goal,” Ray Miller said. “After that we where so hyped! I wish I was able to watch the halftime show but the football team had to stay inside the locker room.”
Even though Tomball won, the season was over. The Cougars still needed Magnolia to lose to Brenham, but since Magnolia won, the Coogs are not in the playoffs.
This win ends the varsity Football team’s season with a district record of 4-3 and overall record of 7-3.
It wasn’t just the football players walking off the field for the final time. Band, cheer, Charms – several groups also saw their seasons end.
“It was kind of sad knowing this was my last year,” Elizabeth Allen of the Charms said. “Broadcasting was asking us about it during practice the day before and we where all crying.”
