STEVENS POINT – Brycen Cashin proved unstoppable, again, as the Pacelli football team cruised to a 39-16 win over Pittsville in the Central Wisconsin Conference Small Division opener for both teams on Thursday at Goerke Field.
The Cardinals’ senior running back ran for 160 yards and five touchdowns, and caught two passes for 94 yards which included a 64-yard touchdown, accounting for all six of Pacelli’s scores.
All of Cashin’s touchdowns came in the first half as Pacelli built a 39-0 lead and started the second half with a running clock.
Pittsville scored twice in the fourth quarter as Aiden Kolar had an 8-yard touchdown run and Noah Grimm caught a 10-yard TD pass from Waylon Grimm. Kolar added two-point conversion runs on both scores to finish off the scoring.
Kolar finished with 118 yards rushing for the Panthers (0-3, 0-1 CWC Small).
Pittsville turned the ball over four times, three on lost fumbles.
