Cashion powers past Minco for district title
Cashion coach Lynn
Shackelford gave his team a late-season challenge.
Shackleford asked his guys to adopt an old-school mentality and start pushing people around with the run game.
“We’ve shown an ability all year to get stronger as game goes on,” Shackelford said. “So we really challenged our team to run the ball, control the clock and give our defense some rest.”
Cashion did just that this past week, rushing for 256 yards as a team against Minco to beat the Bulldogs 26-13 and clinch the District A-3 title.
Junior running back T.J.
Roberts rushed 27 times for 119 yards and two scores while quarterback Griffin
Lamb added 67 yards rushing and a score.
This is the second straight game Cashion has rushed for more than 250 yards. The Wildcats had nearly 300 yards rushing last week against Crossings Christian.
“We are excited,” Shackelford said. “I’ve said this all season but this district, if you can survive it, will have done a good job making sure you are focused week to week.
“Hopefully that mindset and mentality will help us in the playoffs now.”
