Cassville football breezes past Mustangs
Wildcats' offense lights up scoreboard through the air
The Cassville football team was too strong for McDonald County on both sides of the ball Friday, lighting up the scoreboard in a 35-0 win at home.
It was trouble from the start for the Mustangs when senior running back Chase Jackson ran 22 yards for a score on Cassville's first play from scrimmage.
Senior quarterback Gabe Kirk then capitalized on a Dylan Klewer fumble recovery by going for a 14-yard touchdown run.
From there, senior wide receiver Cade Pendergraft took over, fighting off a McDonald County defender for a 54-yard touchdown catch, then adding a 51-yard touchdown catch with less than a minute in the half for a 28-0 lead.
Cassville continued it's strong offensive play in the second half, running the clock with long drives.
Kirk went 88 yards on a run for a touchdown, but it was called back after offsetting personal fouls. But, the Wildcats kept driving. Kirk capped off the long possession with a 2-yard touchdown run, flipping over a defender for the score.
McDonald County had a tough time moving the ball all night, making it into Cassville's end a couple times, but never capitalizing.
Cassville hosts Lamar on Friday, with kickoff set for 7 p.m.
