After emerging victorious from four straight playoff games, the Cougars reached the Regional Final Wednesday night. Their opponent - The Deckerville Eagles. With their eyes on the prize, the Cougars hit the court running, and never slowed down till he final buzzer.

Once the Cougars put their first basket on the board there was no hope of catching them. The Cougars racked up nine points before the Eagles scored their first point, off of a free throw. The main reason for the Cougars success in the first period was their solid defensive play. The Cougar defenders completely shut the Eagles struggling offense. The Eagles only managed to score four free throw points, and one scant 3-pointer. The Cougars held a considerable lead at the end of the first period with the score at 17-7.

The second period was where the Cougars took the game away from the Eagles. With their defense rendering the Eagles offense useless, the Cougars were able to focus on their own offense. The Cougars quickly racked up an incredible lead of 30-7. The Eagles managed to add only 8 points to their total in the entire second period! On the other hand, the Cougars all but won the game with their juggernaut offense. When the brutal first half finally came to an end, the score favored All Saints at 45-15.

With their loyal fans cheering them on, and a running clock steadily ticking down, the Cougars easily continued their domination on the court. While #20 Adam Pijaszek added a pair of 3-pointers to the Cougars score, #14 Cameron Coburn kept busy, adding 7 of his total 13 points to the Cougars untouchable lead.

By the time the 3rd period was over, All Saints was 'large and in charge' with the score 68-27. From this point on, it was smooth sailing for the Cougars. In the fourth period, the Eagles only managed to add 5 points to their total - the Cougars bench added 4 to theirs.

After four periods of offensive domination, the All Saints Cougars became the Class D Regional champions. This game also marks another milestone for All Saints; with this victory in the record books, Coach Mike Showalter earned his 100th victory as head coach of the Cougars. Of this milestone, coach Showalter said "I've had a lot of good players over the years, and I hope I get another hundred!"

The Cougars move on to the state quarter finals next week. When asked if they were ready for the state level, the entire Cougar team responded "We're going to give it our all!"
