Cardinals spoil Warhawks’ opener
By Greg Seubert
WEYAUWEGA – The passing game was clicking for the Weyauwega-Fremont football team in its season opener.
The rushing game turned out to be another story.
Pacelli held the Warhawks to minus-29 yards on the ground, kept them out of the end zone until late in the game and returned home with a 33-7 non conference win.
The Warhawks were still in striking distance at halftime after the Cardinals scored once in each quarter to take a 14-0 lead at the break.
Brycen Cashin’s 1- and 2-yard runs were the only scores of the half.
He added runs of 9 and 69 yards in the third quarter and Nick Schroeder closed the scoring for Pacelli with a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Weyauwega-Fremont’s points came with 1:29 to go in the game on Quinn Dittmann’s 29-yard touchdown pass to Park Groskreutz.
Cashin and Schroeder turned out to be an effective one-two punch out of the Cardinals’ backfield, as they accounted for all five of their team’s touchdowns and combined for 326 of Pacelli’s 347 rushing yards.
