TESCOTT, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - The Cunningham Wildcats shut out the Tescott Trojans 42-0 in the Week Four six-man matchup.

Both teams entered the game with undefeated 3-0 records. Cunningham blanked the defending state champions, the Natoma Tigers, 47-0 in Week Two.

Tescott won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half.

Cunningham took the ball and scored in less than a minute on a 24-yard pass from Luke McGuire to Lane Halderson. Dagim Reed kicked a PAT to add two more points and make the score 8-0.

The Wildcat defense forced a three-and-out from the Tescott Trojans’ first possession.

Lane Halderson pulled in another pass to score the next touchdown. Trey DeWeese found Halderson for the 37-yard reception. The score now read 14-0.

On the next Trojan possession, Cunningham forced another punt. As Blake Green kicked the punt, Jack Ruckle of Cunningham was there to block it.

The ball was downed at the Tescott two-yard line.

Ruckle got the ball on the very next play and ran it straight into the end zone for the third touchdown of the game. Dagim Reed added the PAT to make the score 22-0.

Early in the second quarter, Trey DeWeese threw another touchdown pass. Luke McGuire hauled in the 10-yard pass for his first touchdown.

McGuire would get his second touchdown on a pick-six. Blake Green threw the pass to the 25-yard line where McGuire was waiting. McGuire immediately took the ball in for six more points.

The last score of the evening came when Luke Albers caught a 27-yard pass from Trey DeWeese. Dagim Reed added his third successful PAT of the night to cap the scoring at 42-0.

Tescott threatened to score twice in the second half. The Wildcat defense held the Trojans off the board.

“We’re still getting better. We came out strong and cleaned up some penalties and took care of the ball,” said Cunningham Head Coach Lance McGuire. “That was a quality opponent that has not had a lot of six-man experience. They’ll get better as the season goes on. We knew they were physical and would hit us. I feel like we matched them physically on their own field.”

Trey DeWeese led in passing with 180 yards on 13 or 19 attempts and three touchdown passes. Lane Halderson caught two of those touchdowns while Luke McGuire caught the second. McGuire also had an interception return for a touchdown.
