"These guys did a good job stepping up tonight," St. Pierre said, "They stuck to our attack and defensive patterns and were able to get up early on [Snow College]. From there it was just about playing solid for the rest of the game."
Following St. Pierre's direction the Cougars would dot down 7 more tries before the halftime whistle to make the scoreline 57-0.
