HUNTLAND -- The Cascade Champions (3-1, 2-2 9-A) spoiled the Huntland Hornets' homecoming on Friday with an impressive 39-0 shutout victory.

Running back Creed Rose led the way for the Champs with 253 yards on the ground and three touchdowns.

Dakota Vaught proved to be a threat on both sides of the ball, making 11 tackles on defense and galloping for 30 yards and a pair of touchdowns on offense.

Defensively, Cascade forced two fumbles and two interceptions against the Hornets.

Early score

In the first drive of the game, Cascade smothered the Hornet offense and forced a quick three and out.

Rose put the Champs on the board in the drive with a 52-yarder to put the Champs up 6-0 with 9:15 to go in the first.

After a back and forth defensive battle in the first, the Champion offense took charge in the second quarter scoring 20 unanswered points just five minutes.

With 10:41 left in the second quarter Rose pushed 3 yards across the goal line for his second touchdown of the game.

This score ignited the Champion offense as they scored two more times in the next four minutes, one coming from a nine-yard run by Dakota Vaught and the last a 25-yard run by Rose after an interception.

Cascade went into the half with a 26-point advantage, but kicked it in cruise control as Champs were able to put another 13 points on the board in the second half.

Several score

While Rose led the Champs, Vaught had a pair of touchdowns to his credit and 30 yards on the ground. Cody Smith also got in on the scoring action and scored a touchdown.

Freshman playcaller Chandler Sulcer connected on 4-of-7 passes for 41 yards. Of Cascade's total 400 yards, 359 came on the ground.

The Champs step out of district play next week and head to Cannon County.
