The Cougars (6-11-3 overall) finished the conference portion of their season with a 3-5-1 record.

"Verona was the best team we've seen all year," Craig High coach Bill McCabe said. "They might be the best passing team I've seen in the last four years.

"We got down again after giving up three goal in the first seven minutes of the game, so we just have to find a way to start stronger."
