Wildcats dominate Aurora in season opener
The Cassville Wildcats made a strong statement with their 36-12 destruction of Aurora on Friday, August 22. Opening the 2014 season on the road, Lance Parnell’s troops won the battle with a dominant defensive effort and a punishing, clock-devouring running game.
The Wildcats strangled Aurora’s offense in the first half. The Houns reached their own 38-yard line twice, but never crossed their own 40, much less the midfield stripe. The second half was no kinder to the Aurora offense, but the home team did mount a drive against Cassville’s depth-chart reserves on its final possession of the game. The 70-yard drive ended with a three-yard Tanner Schnelle touchdown run - Aurora’s only offensive score of the night.
