Cashion (12-0) vs. Stroud (12-0)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Stroud HS

Cashion (12-0)
Why the Wildcats can win:
Because they went through one of the tougher districts and came out on top in a couple of games where I didn’t think it was possible. Cashion has a toughness that stems from the way coach Lynn Shackelford has molded this team to be. Not always flashy, but always effective.

There’s not much you need to say at this point. We know this game is going to be tough, but this is what you want at this time of year.” – Shackelford

Stroud (12-0)
Why the Tigers can win: Because they’ve been so dominant all season. While Cashion has to battle to the final seconds a couple of times, Stroud has been, whew, untouchable. 512-86 or 43-7 is the average winning margin per game this season for Chris Elerick’s team.

Key matchup: Cashion’s Jeremy Seaton vs. Stroud defense. I don’t know if Cashion can stop Cody Pritchard, but if Jeremy Seaton can be as effective running and throwing the ball as he’s been all year, then I think the Tigers might be in for a long night.

The pick: Cashion 22, Stroud 19. I can’t see this being by more than a touchdown, and I can’t see either team scoring more than 30 points. The winner of this will definitely have earned the berth into the semifinals.
