Cole leads Logan-Rogersville to victory over Springfield Catholic
Dylan Cole scores 4 TDs for Wildcats
By Greg French
ROGERSVILLE,Mo. -- The Springfield Catholic Fightin’ Irish traveled into Webster County on Monday night looking to upset the Logan-Rogersville Wildcats on their home turf, yet the host Wildcats proved a tough test for the Irish.
The first quarter saw Rogersville and Catholic turn the ball over several times, as Catholic quarterback Chad McBride was intercepted and the Irish turned the ball over on downs. Rogersville’s offense was stifled by a stingy Catholic defense as the Wildcats were forced to punt three times in the first quarter, and the quarter ended with a 0-0 score.
The Fightin’ Irish got on the board in the second quarter, as senior running back Nick Gori punched the ball in the end zone on a 1-yard run to give Catholic a 7-0 lead. Rogersville immediately and impressively answered on their next possession, as Joe Zimmer’s 20-yard touchdown run capped an 80-yard drive and tied the score at 7.
After an Irish turnover-on-downs, Rogersville took the lead as Dylan Cole rumbled 65 yards to the house to give the Cats a 14-7 advantage. Catholic was unable to answer, and the teams went to the locker rooms with Rogersville holding the lead.
The third quarter began much like the first, as the teams traded punts to start the second half. Rogersville was able to add to its lead on its second possession of the half, as Dylan Cole scored his second touchdown of the game on a 31-yard-run to give the Wildcats a 21-7 lead. Catholic was unable to answer on its ensuing possession, and the third quarter ended with the Irish trailing the Wildcats 21-7.
Catholic was able to hold off the Wildcats to open the fourth quarter, and the Irish proceeded to cut the lead to 21-14 as Cameron Skornia scored on a short run with 10 minutes left in the game. Rogersville again quickly responded to the Catholic score as Cole scored his third touchdown of the game on a 65-yard-run to make the Wildcat lead 27-14.
Cole then sealed the game for Rogersville as he intercepted Chad McBride’s pass and took it 66 yards to the house for his fourth touchdown of the game and gave Rogersville a 34-14 lead. Catholic’s final drive ended when McBride’s pass was intercepted by senior defensive back Travis McMillion, and Rogersville earned a hard fought 34-14 victory.
Rogersville defeated Catholic for the second time this season, and advanced to play the Cassville Wildcats on Saturday.
