CHARLOTTE, N.C. – With several Charlotte high school matchups scrapped due to rainy conditions delivered by Tropical Storm Hermine, the Cook Cup took center stage Friday night.
Rivals Charlotte Catholic and Charlotte Country Day battled despite the nasty weather at Jim Keffer Stadium and the Cougars captured their fourth consecutive win in the series, 27-0.
Catholic running back Jack Brigham was sensational for Mike Brodowicz’s team, rushing for 134 yards on 120 carries and three scores. His partner in the backfield, Milan Howard, was also strong, picking up 108 yards on the ground on 12 carries.
After Catholic’s defense forced Country Day to pass the ball in unfavorable conditions, senior safety James Hurney stepped up with three of Catholic’s four interceptions. The Bucs reached the Cougars’ red zone just once, but lost possession after a fumble, which resulted in an 80-yard Catholic touchdown drive.
