Tigers too tall for Cougars

OKTAHA — The Canadian Cougars have speed. The Canadian Cougars have intensity.

Unfortunately, the Canadian Cougars don’t have a lot of height. And against the much taller Oktaha Tigers, that disadvantage proved their downfall.

Canadian couldn’t stop Oktaha’s inside game in the second half, allowing the Tigers to come back and beat the Cougars, 47-38, on Tuesday in Oktaha.

With the win, Oktaha finished its regular season 20-4. Canadian, which won the Pittsburg 8 Conference this season for the first time since 2000, finished 16-7.
