CASHION – Class A No. 1 Cashion was able to score two late touchdowns to escape with a 33-22 victory against No. 6 Christian Heritage. 

Here are five takeaways:

1. Cashion's experience shows late

After CHA (4-1, 0-1 District A-3) scored a late touchdown and converted a two-point conversion, Cashion had 1:15 to score, but it wasn't an issue. The Wildcats were able to add two touchdowns.

First, Caden Harrell, a junior running back, plunged into the end zone with 17 seconds left for the game-winning score. On CHA's first play the following drive, Justice Broadbent intercepted a pass and returned it 45 yards for a score to seal the victory.

The Wildcats (4-0, 2-0) backed their No.1 ranking against a state runner-up team from a season ago. 14 seniors and 21 of 22 returning starters could help a deep playoff run.

2. CHA's late score was perfect

CHA quarterback Denver Rhymer had targeted Nate Nuthman throughout the night, and the two connected on the first score for the Crusaders.

On fourth-and-goal from Cashion's 6, the Wildcats sent a cornerback and safety to their left to defend the taller Nuthman. Rhymer noticed this and threw an excellent pass on an out pattern to star senior Carson Bullard for a score.

Then on a two-point conversion, Nuthman was lined up to the left in single coverage and came down with a jump ball to give CHA its first lead.

3. Brexten Green has all-around performance

Cashion's Brexten Green was able to find the football consistently.

He intercepted two passes, caught two passes and had three rushes for 32 yards. His first interception came in the second quarter while the latter happened on CHA's first play of the second half.

Although he didn't score on offense, he had rushes of 12,11 and nine yards.

4. Cashion's rush defense stellar

The Crusaders weren't able to find running lanes all night.

Cashion collected five sacks, Gunnar Simpson garnering two of them, and limited CHA to 43 rushing yards on 27 attempts.

5. Looking ahead

Christian Heritage has a bye before traveling to Crossings Christian (2-3, 1-1) on Oct. 11.

Cashion heads to Elmore City-Pernell (3-1, 0-1) next Friday.
