The No. 1 Cashion Wildcats will put their 21-game regular season win streak on the line this Friday when they host undefeated No. 3 Minco for the district title.
Cashion hasn’t lost a regular season game since falling to rival Crescent back on October 6th, 2017. Since then, the Wildcats have dominated the regular season, outscoring their opponents 906 to 245.
If Cashion picks up a win this Friday, they will lock up their second undefeated regular season in a row and its second straight district title. Cashion has never had two straight unbeaten regular seasons in its history. The closest they’ve came is one regular season loss in two straight seasons, which has happened four times (‘75-’76, ‘05-’06, ‘06-’07, 09-’10).
In order to win the district title, the Wildcats will have to go through its toughest test all season.
Minco enters Friday night in the midst of its own special season. The Bulldogs have rallied behind standout wide receiver Parker Winters who has hauled in 904 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. The Bulldogs are averaging 388 yards per game and are putting up nearly 34 points a game. Something will have to give, as Cashion has allowed only eight points on average. Cashion has held its opponents to 14 points or less in six of their eight games this season. They are giving up only 126 yards per game.
As good as Cashion has been on defense this season, Minco is close behind them giving up only 15.4 points per game.
If the Wildcats are able to beat Minco this week, they would lock up home field advantage for the first two rounds of the playoffs and be set for another run in the postseason. The Wildcats are hoping to get back to the state title game for the first time since 2015.
Cashion and Minco will kickoff at 7 p.m. this Friday.
