Cassville now stands at 14-2 on the 2005 season after a pair of wins this past week. The Wildcats have achieved more records thus far in the 2005 season than in the six-year history of the soccer program at Cassville High School.

The Wildcats defeated Monett last Thursday by a score of 3-0. Senior Brett Buchanan had the first goal, which proved to be the game winner. His goal was scored on an assist by freshman Aaron Jamieson.

"Brett is having his finest season after coming back from an almost season-long injury in 2004," said Coach Terry Jamieson.

Sophomore Ryan Schlichtman scored the second goal for Cassville on an assist from his brother, senior Nick Schlichtman. Jamieson scored an unassisted goal in the second half to secure the Wildcats' 3-0 win over rival Monett in a very physical match.
Cassville traveled to Springfield on Saturday and defeated Hillcrest 3-0 behind a pair of goals from Nick Schlichtman and one from Jamieson.

Schlichtman also added another assist to his resume as did his brother, Ryan, and the Wildcat defense, led by Spencer Lynch, Jason Bromley and Nate Evans, dominated the field once again. In the past four matches the defense has not allowed a goal and has only allowed two shots on goal in two weeks.

"Jeremiah Harris was brilliant at Monett, and both Nick and Brett are really getting the job done on offense," said Coach Jamieson. "I think Aaron is playing great for a freshman, and we have now got the offense to compete with any other team."

Cassville has a big week with matches against Aurora and Carthage. The outcome of Thursday's home game against the Tigers could play a big factor in seeding for districts.
