After moving up to Division II this season, for the first time in club history the Cougars faced the long established D2 powerhouse Appalachian State, or as they call themselves: AHO. The two teams sought to establish unquestioned dominance of the Western Division, having both been undefeated so far in the season. It was up to CofC to fight the very uphill battle against AHO, as they played them in their football stadium in Boone. The weather was in the low thirties with light snowfall, and in combination with the high elevation, the Cougars were on very unfamiliar turf. At first, the game was tight, roughly ten minutes in App State led the Cougars 12 to 8 thanks to a penalty kick by George Woolston and a hard-earned try by eight-man Jon Bernstein. But the Cougars would falter in the first half, as poor defensive play enabled AHO to take a substantial lead by halftime, 33-8. CofC was not about to go without a fight, and in the second half they showed why they are definitely serious contenders for the Conference championship. George Woolston got the team going with a big try early on, then D.J. Tippins scored another to bring the Cougars even closer. AHO responded with another try of their own, making the score 38-22. Then Kenny Evans made a great run and scored a crucial try to bring the Cougars within 10 points with only six minutes left to play: 38-29. Unfortunately, AHO managed to score again in the closing minutes to dash Cougars hopes of mounting an incredible comeback, and the game ended 45-29. With four tries scored, CofC still secured a bonus point and maintained their first place standing due to a rescheduling AHO was forced to make earlier in the season. The Cougars look forward to facing the Mountaineers again in the playoffs, this time on neutral ground.
