We are getting down to the nitty gritty in high school football. Just two regular season games remain for most teams. One team that controls their own destiny is Capital. They were on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs were concerned until they beat up George Washington 35-13 last week. Now the Cougers are ranked number 13, and looking good for the post season, but according to coach John Carpenter, last weeks big win is over and done with.

"It can be a double edged sword, you know we gotta come out and play, do the same things we did last week and realize it's nice to beat GW." said Carpenter, "It's nice to beat anybody in this conference but you can't get satisfied with that. You know they don't give a trophy for beating George Washington so you gotta get ready to play this week."
