Kings beat Braves for 15th straight time

McGehee's 3 TDs, Zeck's 3 interceptions highlight Cass' win.

WALTON — Going into Friday night’s game against visiting Maconaquah, the Lewis Cass football team found itself in an unusual position — looking up at the Braves in the Mid-Indiana Conference standings.

Mac entered the game at 4-1 in league play with its title hopes very much alive, while the Kings were 3-2. But for the 15th straight time and 20th time in the last 21 contests between the MIC foes, Cass came out on top, 36-14.

The heroes were many for Cass, and five turnovers by the Braves were too many to overcome. Combining stellar defense and a consistent rushing offense, Cass held Mac at bay.

In a first half that saw both teams squander goal-line opportunities, Cass built a 14-0 lead on a four-yard scoring plunge by Brendan McGehee and a 14-yard TD run by Hunter Clark.

The key moment in the game came in the third quarter. After the Kings lost a fumble at their 22 on the first play from scrimmage in the second half, the Braves quickly took advantage, scoring five plays later on Cody Hicks’ eight-yard run off right tackle to cut the margin to 14-7. Mac seemed poised to make a challenge.

But Cass (5-3 overall, 4-2 MIC) answered with a nine-play, 60-yard march that reached paydirt when McGehee skirted right end from 28 yards out for his second TD to put Cass back in front by two TDs and kill Mac’s momentum.

Cass coach Scott Mannering noted, “That was probably the turning point. I know they had a lot of confidence after they got that first score in, and to be able to answer that was just huge.”

Mac (5-3, 4-2) never quit. The Braves drove from their 40 to the Kings’ 25, but diminutive sophomore Conner Zeck, who grabbed three interceptions on the night, picked off Kyle Dinn’s pass to end the threat.
