Cashion finds offensive spark against Watonga


“Rough Rider Night” in Cashion proved difficult for Watonga.

The Wildcats returned to district action last Friday with a 48-8 victory over the visiting Eagles. The hosts were paying homage to Roy Cashion, the town’s namesake, as he was one of the first to sign up for Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War.

Killed during the charge on San Juan Hill, Cashion would be the first Oklahoman to die in battle on foreign soil. Cashion wore special uniforms with “Rough Riders” sporting both the jerseys and helmets.

They scored early and often in them. The Wildcats led 41-0 at halftime as five different players scored all six touchdowns. Cooper Frazee started with a score of 21 yards.

Max Brown followed up with his first of three touchdowns overnight. Brown had a 74-yard touchdown pass from Chance Acord, his first of four touchdowns of the night.

Acord finished first with a 20-yard pass to Camden Maroney.

Brown struck again in the second quarter when he scored on a 92-yard run.

Acord threw his third touchdown connecting with Seth Gilbert at 23 yards. Jackson Vandruff capped off the half by catching a pass and returning it 45 yards for a touchdown.

Brown and Acord reunited one last time with a 3-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Acord was 15 of 20 for 221 yards.

The Wildcats added 230 more rushing yards.

Frazee rushed for 61 yards and Nathan Nabavi 53 more. Brown’s big TD rush helped him to 105 rushing yards on just two carries.

This allowed him to pull off the double dip passing the century bar by rushing and receiving.

Brown’s four receptions led 140 yards through the air.

Jake Branson led the defense with 10 tackles.

Brown and Timmy Jones had seven each.

Cashion is now 3-3 on the season and 1-1 in District A-3.

The Wildcats travel to play at the Christian Heritage Academy on Thursday.

The CHA has just inflicted on Minco its first defeat of the year, 28-7.

The Crusaders (5-2, 2-1) were beaten earlier by Crescent in district action.
