South Put trounces visiting Cascade

GREENCASTLE — South Putnam defeated Cascade 42-0 on its Senior Night on Friday, as the Cadets lost their second consecutive game to finish the regular season at 5-4.

Cascade won the opening toss and elected to receive. The Cadets went three-and-out, as South Put’s night-long defensive dominance ensued.

“We feel like the strength of our football team is up front (defensively),” South Put coach Tony Burgess said. “Our four guys up front did a really good job. I thought our linebackers really played downhill well tonight.”

Burgess said his defensive coordinator had a “great game plan,” focusing on Cascade running back Zac Butler. South Put limited Butler to 25 yards on 18 carries, including 24 yards on 15 totes in the first half.

“One thing we really stressed this week is, ‘Let’s keep him pinned in, let’s don’t let him get on the edges,’” Burgess said. “When we gets to the secondary, not many guys are going to catch him. He’s very talented. I was very proud of our kids and the effort they did to focus on where he was and try to keep him contained.”

On South Put’s first possession, Cascade’s defensive line sustained a blow when senior defensive lineman Chance Webb suffered a left leg injury. The 6-foot, 340-pounder did not return.

“It’s huge,” said Cascade coach Jason Thompson. “He’s a senior that’s played a lot of football games. He’s a big kid. He does a good job of stuffing the middle. It’s tough to replace a big kid like that.”

Thompson said the Cadets faced one of Indiana’s best running backs regardless of class in junior Lucas Lorian, who rushed for 252 yards on 18 carries. He scored the game’s first two touchdowns, 52 and 86 yards, respectively.

“He’s quick and strong,” Thompson said. “If you don’t have a secure tackle, he’s going to run through you. He’s going to score. That’s a credit to those guys. They did a great job up front and he’s a good back. They’re going to make a run.”

Lorian’s second touchdown came one play after Cascade quarterback Sawyer Donovan threw his first interception. From his 14-yard line, Lorian broke a few tackles and ran down the right sideline for a score.

Cascade trailed 14-0, and the rout was on. It was the Cadets’ first shutout loss since Week 8 of last season.

Cascade (5-4) will travel to Cloverdale (1-8) for next week’s sectional opener. The Cadets won the teams’ Sept. 20 meeting, 48-19.
