On a chilly homecoming night – with “night” being the definitive word, since it was the first evening kickoff in the school’s 14-plus years of football – Saturday’s version of the Cougars was the antithesis of the team that was stunned two weeks ago by Saint Ambrose, 15-14 – a game Saint Francis coach Kevin Donley said his team should not have lost.
