The Logan County High School Cougars played in the first home game of the 2015 season on Friday night, when they were host to the Muhlenberg County Mustangs.

The Cougars would lose the game, 39-0, making their record 0-2 in this young season. With the win, the Mustangs go to 1-1, winning their first after a loss at Apollo last week.

The loss on Friday was a tough one for the Cougars. In the game, the bigger and deeper Mustangs held control from the beginning, scoring their first touchdown less than five minutes into the game.

Quarterback Hunter Combs led Muhlenberg County with 94 rushing yards and three running touchdowns to go along with 7-of-14 passing for 143 yards and one touchdown.

Demond Johnson had a team-high 95 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He also caught three passes for 44 yards.

The Cougars were never able to get a consistent and capable offensive on track. The Logan County defense, however, did make some plays and keep the Cougars and their fans invested in the game.

Next up for the Cougars is a visit from Apollo. The Cougars will host the Eagles at LCHS this Friday night with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. In the first week of the season, Apollo knocked off Muhlenberg County 35-14.
