(KNSI) - After the Crusaders stalled out on their first possession, the Wildcats never looked back and gave St. Cloud Cathedral a Thursday evening they would like to forget.
Once the Wildcats received the ball, they took their first possession to the house with some hard-nosed running.
Payton Madison capped-off the first Wildcat possession with an 8-yard touchdown run.
After a turnover from the Crusaders, the Wildcats then marched right down the field once again for another touchdown from Madison.
After the kick was blocked, New London-Spicer held onto a 13-0 lead and the rout was seemingly on.
More proof to the rout being on, Sam Stageberg from New London-Spicer returned the Wildcats’ next punt 60-yards to put his team up 21-0 after the successful 2-point conversion.
Right before halftime, the Wildcats added two more touchdowns to go up big by the score of 35-0.
Stageberg then scampered in nearly untouched for his third touchdown on the evening to put the Wildcats up 42-0.
Stageberg ended with 134 yards rushing, three-total touchdowns and was named the All-Star Trophy Player of the Game.
Madison then added his third touchdown to make the score 49-0
The Crusaders did put together a nice drive that ended with a Caleb Leintz 20-yard touchdown run to make the score 49-7
The Wildcats added one more score in the fourth quarter to make the final 55-7.
Cathedral now has a record of 0-2 and New London-Spicer improved to a record of 1-1.
