Barry County maul
Big second quarter fuels Cassville fire
The Barry County Brawl developed into a Barry County maul on Friday, as Cassville barnstormed its way to a 50-0 win at Burl Fowler Stadium.
The Wildcats found the end zone early and often, putting up 36 points in the opening half and seemingly scoring without even trying.
On the first drive, quarterback Hayden Sink launched a floating pass Jericho Farris pulled down for a 51-yard gain. He scored a play later from the 1.
That was the only score in the opening quarter, but in the next 12 minutes, Cassville caught fire.
After Sink scored on a 1-yard keeper, a bad point-after snap was scooped up by Drake Reese, who ran it in for 2.
Killian Barbee then jumped a Monett pass, setting up Farris for a 10-yard run to paydirt.
A Cubs fumble on the option pitch then put Cassville at the 7, and Zach Coenen scored from 2 yards out.
Another errant pitch was intercepted by Barbee, who went 26 yards the other way untouched to provide the 36-0 halftime score.
After the break, Coenen added to the lead with a 73-yard jaunt to the end zone.
Drake Reese and Hernan Hernandez each had an interception to help keep the shutout intact. Cutter Hicks also contributed a 1-yard touchdown run.
Cassville returns home Friday to host Seneca for homecoming.
