Caston's woes turn to offensive side at Carroll

Cass deals Peru lopsided defeat; Logan rocks Marion.

(Continued)

One bright spot for the Comets was Rex Smith. The senior filled the punting role admirably and gave the Comet defense several opportunities for good field position in some wet conditions.

In addition to his touchdown catch in the first half, Jellison had two interceptions on defense.

With turnovers coming in bunches, it was the Comet offense that obviously fizzled out after the initial score. Douglass ran for his life with virtually no time to set up and find receivers. When he did, his receivers couldn’t haul in the wet, slippery football.

Cass 46, Peru 7

Faced with a soggy field, drizzle which turned to heavy rain and a pesky opponent, Lewis Cass’ football team went back to basics Friday night. The result was the Kings found their stride in the second quarter and surged to a 46-7 victory over previously unbeaten Peru.

“Obviously, the field conditions weren’t great, it was kind of drizzly to start the game out,” Cass coach Scott Mannering said. “[I] didn’t think you could throw the ball well and we were able to move it on the ground so we stayed really basic and that worked. Sometimes you spend all week trying to out-think yourself and the stuff you did in June, or the stuff they’ve been doing since seventh and eighth grade is still good. That was key.”

Cass racked up 450 yards on the ground with Brendan McGehee running for 131 and Payton Young adding 105 as the Kings moved to 2-3 overall, 1-2 in the Mid-Indiana Conference.

Cass got another 79 yards out of Gabe Welch, 45 from Leland Bowling and 36 from James Champ.

The rain hit hard in the second quarter and so did the Kings. Cass led 7-0 after the first quarter on a two-yard touchdown run by Welch to finish an 11-play drive, but the Bengal Tigers had a little life after stopping Cass once and showing a dangerous speed element on offense before stalling out with a sack on their first possession.
