SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Reeds Spring Wolves moved to 3-1 after defeating Springfield Catholic 62-28 in a strong offensive showing on Friday night.
The Wolves took a big 25-7 lead before Catholic responded with big touchdowns.
Catholic took a 28-25 lead as the second quarter wound down, but Reeds Spring responded in the remaining 1:51 with a 19-yard touchdown reception for sophomore James Dowdy and took a 32-28 lead at halftime.
The Wolves kept Catholic from scoring for the rest of the second half. Gross and Blubaugh each ran in touchdowns in the third quarter. Gross also had a pick six to take a 52-28 lead. Junior Addison Abshire got an interception of his own, and freshman Jace Bolin followed that with a 53-yard touchdown for a 31-point lead with 1:27 left in the third quarter.
The Wolves kicked a field goal in the fourth quarter for the final score.
The Wolves have a short week this week. Reeds Spring hosts Hollister at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23, for homecoming instead of the traditional Friday night game.
“That’s our biggest rivalry game that we’re always excited about,” head coach Andy McFarland said. “Going into Hollister week, you want to be coming off a win, and that’s what we did.”
