Your Olney Cubs have set this season on fire with their aggressive game style. The Cubs move into district play riding on top of a blistering 4-0 winning streak. The Cubs defeated Trinity Christian Academy 50-6 with a dominating ground game and a commanding performance from the defense. The Cubs face some of their toughest competitors in the next few weeks. The Cubs play Stamford in the district opener on Sept. 30. The Stamford Bulldogs are currently 4-0 as of publishing time. These are the Cubs of old and this game may come down to the defense of both teams.

Our Olney Cubs traveled to Haskell on Sept. 9 to continue their rain of pain on opponents. The Cubs are 3-0 and continue to grow more physical with each game. The Cubs have now earned the respect of the district and of a majority of high school sports writers with their smothering defensive play style and punishing Veer ground game. During first-quarter play against the Indians, it was a battle of defenses with the Cubs breaking out with a Gatlin Guy 40-yard run for 6 and a successful extra point kicked by Jacob Hernandez. The first quarter ended with the Cubs on top 7-0.
