The Cougars used three first-half goals to beat the Buccaneers 3-2.

The visitors scored the first two goals of the contest and never trailed.

In the eighth minute, Owen Thomas put the first goal away for the Cougars with Thomas Williams getting the assist.

Then, in the 26th minute, Ryan Lewis beat the Buc keeper after a feed from Gabriel Campora to make it 2-0.

Blinn made it 2-1 in the 30th, but CBC extended its lead right before halftime with Harry Garbutt, scoring in the 43rd minute off a feed from Campora.

Late in the second half, Blinn scored to make it 3-2, but CBC keeper Harry Scott held from there to clinch the victory.

Scott played all 90 in net to claim the win. He made five saves.

Coastal Bend improved to 4-2-1 overall with the victory. It also upped the Cougars’ Region XIV mark to 4-1 on the year.
