As football season draws near, the Newark Cougars got a good test of their readiness in a scrimmage contest with the Amador Valley Dons (Pleasanton) on Friday, August 23.
The Cougar offense showed up quickly as they were able to spread out the Don defense creating holes in the line, allowing Cougar runners to use their speed. Offensive power allowed the Cougars to choose between many options which will serve them well in Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) play.
Both teams showed promise in this preseason contest and were impressive when the defense was tested in the backfield. Newark showed heart as they fought hard for every possession; this could be a good season for the Cougars.
