Cougar football came out of their 17 game conference winning streak with a lost to Winona State. Quarterback Ian Fieber takes ownership and knows what needs to happen to come out with a win.
“We just didn’t execute the game plan. We were comfortable with it but didn’t come out. We were miss and match but that’s apart of football. It’s a violent game and people get hurt. The lost is really on us,” Fieber says.
Having starter running back, Max Mickey, out for injuries, the offense has to rely more on Ian to control the game.
“I just have to not force things, knowing that the whole offense and game is on my shoulders. I need to go out and make plays, progressions and reads like I’m supposed to and take it from there,” Fieber says.
Cougar defense also struggled, giving away 31 points. The same amount the team allowed in five prior games total. The football team is looking to bounce back when they travel to Wayne Nebraska to play Wayne State in the Midco Sports game of the week.
