EnviroClean Cougars of the Week: Ethan Ciupka and Nolan Larouche
“Ethan Ciupka and Nolan Larouche contributed in many ways,” says Chatham-Kent Cougars president and Peewee coach Sel Jordan, “But their unselfish play and excellent blocking and tackling might have been the most important fundamental executed against the Rebels to seal the win for the Peewee Cougars.”
Ethan Ciupka played both fullback and linebacker in the game against the Vaughan Rebels, a 35-18 win for the Chatham-Kent Cougars. Ciupka rushed for over 132-yards on seven carries and scored a touchdown in the victory. Of his seven rushes, Ciupka made breakout plays, with two runs totalling over 50-yards. Ciupka also was one of the leading tacklers on defense with 11 tackles. In the win, Ciupka played on every special team and was a valuable contributor to the game.
Nolan Larouche plays tight end and lot, and played on many special teams for the Cougars on the weekend. Larouche was integral in the Cougars’ offense, coming up with key blocks for his quarterback and running backs in the win. He also had a 23 yard run where he was one tackle away from scoring a touchdown.
The Peewee Cougars travel to Burlington to take on the Stampeders June 8 for an 11:30am game time.
