The Cougars were ultimately defeated by Fort Dorchester with a final score of FD 3 to CCHS 2. “The boys did some good and bad things throughout the tournament,” Head Coach Jermale Paige said, “Overall it was much needed because we saw a lot things that we need to improve on, and improvement will happen as the season progresses. Heading into the regular season I feel very confident that we are exactly where we need to be. That’s the purpose of a pre-season tournament to expose our strengths and weaknesses. We’re going to stay strong in those areas that we are currently strong in and get stronger in our weak areas. “
The Cougars will have their first home game on Tuesday, March 6th at 7:00pm, followed by two away games for the week.
