Wildcats blank Patriots

The Cassville football team used big plays and stifling defense to produce a 35-0 victory over East Newton on the road Friday.

Trey Wilson had a big night for Cassville, scoring multiple touchdowns.

His first came on a 3-yard run with 35 seconds left in the first quarter. After a Patriots fake punt failed, Cassville marched down the field and Wilson added another score with 6:28 left in the half.

Garrett Ewing inserted himself into the scoring with as long a touchdown reception as they come, going 98 yards on an over-the-shoulder catch in behind the East Newton defense.

Wilson then hit big again with a 55-yard touchdown run near the end of the half to put Cassville up 28-0 at the break.

The Wildcats’ defensive production matched its offense, with Cassville making multiple fourth-down stops in the opening periods.

After the break, Bryson Jacobson punched in a 1-yard score with 8:42 in the third, providing the final points of the contest.

The Wildcats return home on Friday for homecoming, hosting McDonald County.
