East Farewell – Veterans Day was celebrated on Sunday with a parade up Main Street, past the Iron Works and up to the cemetery where there is a special “Military Area” where any serviceman can be interred if he desires. The area has almost 100 graves representing soldiers from both world wars and the Korean War. The parade was a wonderful show of heavy equipment courtesy of the fire department and other area fire departments, both the Regional High School Marching Band and the Sun City High School Marching Band, an assortment of luxury cars and Veterans from all three conflicts. The parade’s Grand Marshall this year was World War I veteran, Tommy Flynn who rode in an open Cadillac and waved vigorously despite his war wounded right arm. The parade made its way up to the cemetery where a wreath was paced on the entrance marker for the Military Area. Commemorative speeches were made and a bugler (Regional High School senior and ROTC captain, Frank Murphy) played taps on the edge of the cemetery. It was a solemn, respectful service that fittingly honored East Farewell’s finest.

East Farewell – The home field and fans proved to be the catalyst the Cougars needed to break their losing streak. They were able to dominate the Southport Hawks, 24-7. The Friday night game was played under the newly installed field lights at the Regional High Field. The lighting was not optimal and after the game the administration said the lighting problems would be addressed immediately. Lighting problems aside, the Cougars came out strong against a Southport team that also had lost their previous two games. The Cougars took the opening kickoff down to the Hawks 11 yard line where they were forced to kick a field goal putting the Cougars up 3-0. The Hawks struggled on offense in the first half while the Cougars were able to score again in the second quarter with a hard 12 yard run by fullback Robby Blackman. Halftime saw the Cougars up 10-0.

            The second half opened with the Hawks showing a new vigor and on their second series was able to drive all the way down the field and score on a post pattern catch from Hawks quarterback, Joe Reynolds to wide receiver Gino Farmer. The Cougars came right back and scored with another Blackman run, this time to the left side for a twelve yard run. The Hawks tried to mount several other scoring attempts but they all fell short as the Cougars defense seemed to get stronger as the game went on. In the final five minutes of the game the Cougars took complete control holding onto the ball for 4 minutes and 30 seconds of the last five minutes. They systematically drove the ball for first down after first down, barely moving the chains but eating up the clock. Finally with one minute left and the ball on the Hawks 19 yard line Cougars quarterback Kevin Dugan dropped back and fired a solid bullet to wide receiver, Max O’Hara who hauled in the ball and ran into the end zone untouched. The game ended with the Cougars in control, 24-7. Next week the Cougars travel to Corning to face the Devils for the second time this season. In the first meeting the Cougars were able to prevail 21-7 but the Devils have showed a lot of improvement since then. Being on the road has not been good for the Cougars. They have lost three out of four of their games on the road. The Cougars are hoping to change the trend next Saturday. The game begins at 1:30PM at the Corning High School field.
