Warrensburg visited Cambridge on Saturday for a Class D football matchup between a pair of 2-0 teams. Both squads had won convincingly in weeks one and two, and many felt their week three get together would result in a competitive contest, testing both schools. Never happened.
Cambridge scored their first touchdown just :24 in and never looked back, on their way to a decisive 63-6 victory over the Burghers.
Zack Rowland threw the first of three touchdowns passes on the day at the 11:36 mark of the first, finding Colton Dean on a short connection and the big back did the rest rumbling in from 59 yards out and the 7-0 lead.
Six minutes later Rowland rolled to his right and found Jonas Butz who made a nice, sliding catch in the end zone for a 12-yard score.
With just 1:27 left in the opening quarter it was Dean on a 1-yard run, and with the point after a 21-0 Indians lead.
Three minutes into the second period after a Cambridge turnover, Warrensburg scored it’s first and last points of the game on a 9-yard scoring run from Greg Shambo cutting the lead to 21-6.
The Indians took just :22 to respond when Butz ran it in from 52 yards out taking back any momentum the Burghers had gained from their first points of the afternoon.
Cambridge finished the half with a trio of touchdowns, including a 4-yard run from Maurice Seymore, a 15 yard scamper from Dean, and an 8-yard scoring strike from Rowland to Brenden Holcomb completing a dominant 49-6 first half for the Indians.
Cambridge finished the scoring on this day with a pair of third quarter touchdown runs, Seymore from 17 yards out, and freshman Hunter Day getting into the act with a 7-yard score as all Indians reserves saw quality time after the break.
Warrensburg falls to 2-1 with the loss and will look to bounce back next week with an away contest against Helderberg Valley.
Cambridge with the “W” improves to 3-0 with Salem up next for the Indians in a home affair on Saturday.
Cambridge has now outscored it’s opponents 175-20 through three weekends of football. They don’t throw it much but when they do they’ll hurt you. They have a stable of backs that can score from anywhere on the field. Defensively they can pressure the quarterback, and stuff the run.
Just another deeply talented, well coached Indian team that folks in Cambridge and the surrounding area are accustomed to seeing. A remarkable run of success that shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.
