JV gets back to winning ways
It didn't take long for the JV football team to get back into the win column after suffering its first loss of the season a week ago at the hands of Aurora Houn' Dawgs. This past week the Mt. Vernon Mountaineers traveled to Cassville, and the Wildcats won 32-6.
The first half of the game was all Wildcats. The offense came out hitting on all cylinders and scored three different times before half.
Tyler Peterson opened up the scoring with a 10-yard run, and Bradley Lueckenhoff adding the extra point. Billy Forester would put another 6 points up for the Wildcats on a 13-yard run making the score 13-0. Marcus Weatherman would end the scoring for the first half with a eight-yard run on an option play that would have the Wildcats up 19-0.
The Wildcats started out the second half in big way. Peterson would rip off a run from 50 yards out, and Lueckenhoff would add the extra point making the score 26-0.
This time Mt. Vernon would answer with a scoring drive of its own to put the score at 26-6.
The JV 'Cats would be the last to score in the game. Boyd Goade would score from 15 yards out, making the final score 32-6.
The jayvee coaches were very pleased with the effort from their team. The JV 'Cats were shorthanded by injuries or players moving up to the varsity and several players stepped into roles they were not used to playing and played well enough to beat a Big 8 foe.
