COMETS-PANTHERS CLASH

Logan hosts Anderson; Winamac earns a No. 1 ranking

Cass County’s two Midwest Conference football powers, Pioneer and Caston, meet again at 7 o’clock tonight in Fulton for their annual grudge match.

The Comets have actually played the Panthers closer than any other team in the conference in recent years until Winamac’s take down of Pioneer in Week 2 this year.

“It’s probably going to be a typical Caston-Pioneer game,” Panthers coach Mike Johnson said.

The Panthers (1-2, 1-1 MWC) gathered momentum on offense at the end of that Winamac game and took it to South Newton early last week in rolling the Rebels, 66-28.

Caston coach Chris Ulerick said his team needs to be ready to play from the start.

“We’ve got to stop that before they get a chance to get that machine going,” he said. “We’re going to have to play well like we did the second half last week to have a chance. We fought hard and did what we needed to do. We need four quarters of that in order to be in position to win.”

The Comets (1-2, 1-1) are also coming off their first win of the season, scoring the game’s final 21 points in a 21-14 win over a hungry and improved Frontier squad.

Quarterback Quentin Douglass was 13-of-17 passing for 106 yards in the win and added a rushing touchdown. Jake Kingery was his top target with six catches for 76 yards. Fullback Conner Martin added 92 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.

“We have to contain Quentin Douglass. He makes their offense go,” Johnson said. “They also have very capable halfbacks who won the game for them last week. They ran jet sweep 10 times in a row to score at the end. We have to contain their offense and move the ball against a traditionally stubborn defense against us.”

Fullback Justin Mersch had 174 yards rushing and three touchdowns, and quarterback Sam Kiser added 104 yards on the ground and three scores in the Panthers’ win over South Newton last week.
