Cascade crushes Clinton Central

On paper, it looked like the Clinton Central Bulldogs were no match for the Cascade Cadets in Friday night’s non-conference match-up.

On the field it was obvious, as Cascade rolled to a 46-0 win and moved to 3-1 on the season for the first time since 2006.

Cascade has had a lot of success on the ground this year behind Zac Butler, who capitalized on the Cadets’ first possession by punching it in from three yards out to end a drive in which Cascade ran the ball every play.

“Our game plan going into the game was to establish our running game,” Cascade coach Jason Thompson said. “We didn’t plan to run every time, but I didn’t want to get away from what was working and getting us yards.”

That touchdown was one of four for Butler, who carried the ball 21 times for 236 yards.

On Clinton Central’s next drive, Cascade blocked a punt to set up a short drive, one capped by quarterback Sawyer Donavan’s 21-yard TD pass to wide receiver Zach Batts.

Cascade took advantage of its lead and aired it out a little bit more than usual.

“We threw the ball 23 times tonight, 10 more times than we usually do,” Thompson said. “We wanted to take advantage of an opportunity to get some game reps, but when you’re up by a lot, 46-0, you don’t really want to pass too much.”

Donovan completed 13 of 22 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. Batts caught eight balls for 111 yards and a score.

Cascade had a good idea Friday night would be a little easier than others, considering Clinton Central came into the contest winless and had been outscored 90-18.

“We knew going into it, if we executed, we could end up handling them pretty easy, but we told our guys not to take anything for granted and to play four quarters,” Thompson said. “We’ve struggled playing four quarters, and we did that tonight from the first snap. We needed to play hard to the end and not have the letdown that happened in our only loss.”
