The Cougars 99AA squad played its second consecutive close game with the Tri Valley Blue Devils. Scoreless through two periods, Tri Valley scored on a bouncing puck midway through Period 3, and the Cougars never recovered. A very nice manuever through traffic and a pretty finish scored Tri Valley's second goal, and an empty netter in the final seconds rounded out the scoring. Shots were 35-23, in favor of Tri Valley. The Cougars lost more than a game, as a valuable team member was injured and will likely be out for six weeks.
