The Cassville Wildcats JV team improved to 4-0 with a 37-0 victory over the Seneca Indians on Sept. 17.

There was plenty for Wildcat fans to cheer about with tough runs, long passes, a physical defense and good special teams.

Cassville did not waste any time in mounting a successful scoring drive after receiving the opening kickoff.

Chase Jackson, who rushed for three touchdowns in the game, opened the scoring with a 7-yard touchdown run. Bradley Lueckenhoff added the extra point.

The JV defense pounced on Seneca's offense and forced a three-and-out. This trend continued throughout the night.

Jackson added his second touchdown of the first quarter, with a 45-yard touchdown run. Lueckenhoff added the PAT to lift Cassville to a 14-0 lead.

The Wildcats' defense took control in the second quarter, shutting down the Indians on every possession.

With 4:35 left in the second quarter, the Cassville offense scored again, this time through the air.

Quarterback Marcus Weatherman hit receiver Glen Thomas on a slant pattern from 24 yards out to give Cassville a 20-0 lead.

Lueckenhoff ended the first half scoring with a field goal slicing through the uprights.

Cassville continued the scoring bonanza in the second half behind the hard-nose running style of Josh Brown.

Brown scored from 9 yards out on the Wildcats' first drive of the second half to give Cassville a 30-0 lead. The scoring for the night concluded with another Jackson touchdown, this time on a 25-yard run.
