Cass unloaded in the second quarter, scoring three times. Quarterback Owen Ohman scored on a one-yard sneak, Young punched a hole at the line of scrimmage and surged 57 yards for a TD, and finally near the end of the half John Hartley pounced on a fumble in the end zone on a Peru punt attempt. That made the score 27-0 Cass at the half.
Peru (4-1, 2-1 MIC) scored on its first possession of the third quarter on a six-yard fake and keep by quarterback Nolan Brimbury for its only score.
“We asked our kids to make sure that half didn’t define who we are and I was very proud that we came out in the third quarter and got a drive put together and put points on the board,” Peru coach Bob Prescott said. “But by far the better team won.”
Brimbury ran for 30 yards and connected on five passes for 51 yards. Michael Richardson added 41 yards on the ground.
Cass scored three times after Peru’s TD. Ohman scored on another one-yard sneak, McGehee punched in from two yards out, and Bowling took a double handoff up the gut for a 20-yard TD.
Logan 39, Marion 13
Logansport’s recent losing streak in football has included some tough-luck losses, none tougher than last week’s loss to Anderson as time expired.
On Friday night the Berries took chance out of the equation with a dominating performance in the second half at Marion.
The Berries came out of the half a determined group and the Giants self-destructed, and Logansport was able to roll to a 39-13 win.
The Berries snapped a 12-game losing streak with the win and a 10-game losing streak in North Central Conference play.
The Berries (1-4, 1-2 NCC) played a pretty sloppy first half and trailed 13-12 at the break. But they got it going in the second half, outscoring the Giants 27-0 in the final two quarters including 20-0 in the third quarter.
