Rich Miano’s first year at Kaiser is beginning to have a special feel to it.
The host Cougars took over first place in the OIA White division, matching their longest winning streak in six years with a 33-14 win over previously undefeated Radford on Friday night.
Kaiser (6-1, 6-2) won its sixth consecutive game and beat the Rams (5-1, 6-1) for the first time in seven tries dating back to 2000.
The Cougars scored twice on defense and added another score on an 82-yard punt return by Kai Gonda, who finished with a season-high 138 yards on the ground.
“I had a feeling if we played our game and played at the level we’re capable of playing, that we’ll control our own destiny … that’s what happened tonight,” Miano said. “This is as satisfying a win as we’ve had this year.”
