After trailing for one of the few times this season, Cashion had little trouble in disposing of yet another foe.
The Wildcats scored 27 straight points last Friday as part of a 54-14 win at Watonga to stay unbeaten.
Cashion is now 7-0 overall and 4-0 in District A-3.
On a cold and rainy night, Cashion turned the ball over three times.
“We had a few issues with Ben catching the snap in the first half,” Cashion coach Lynn Shackelford said. “It probably cost us on one drive, but overall, it wasn’t too much of a factor.”
Watonga used an interception return for a touchdown and a two-point conversion to take a brief lead over Cashion in the fi rst quarter.
But Ben Harman responded from that setback to throw four touchdown passes. He was also bolstered by his team’s run game, which produced 187 yards.
Caden Harrell was a big part of that as he ran for 122 yards on just fi ve touches. Harrell burst free for touchdown runs 44 and 25 yards in the second quarter to help give Cashion a 20-8 lead.
He added another 42-yard scoring run to start the third quarter, one in which Cashion outscored the Eagles 20-0 to put the game away.
The last two TDs in the third and both fourth-quarter scores came from Harman’s arm.
The sophomore connected with Alex Nabavi on touchdown passes of 19 and 39 yards in the third quarter.
Nabavi had six catches for 150 yards, including another 83-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Brexten Green caught a 28-yard touchdown in the fourth. He had fi ve catches for 66 yards.
Harman threw two interceptions in the game, but was 13 for 20 overall for 262 yards.
Cashion’s defense limited Watonga to 122 total yards. The Eagles managed only 106 yards on 47 carries and completed just one pass in the game.
Cashion’s ability to repeat as district champ will be decided in the fi nal two weeks.
The Wildcats host Crossings Christian and Minco those two weeks.
Crossings is 4-1 in the district with its only loss to Minco.
Minco, which is off this week, is 9-0 overall and 5-0 in the district. The Bulldogs are ranked third by The Oklahoman while Cashion is ranked No. 1.
