Later in the first, Waverly-SR capitalized on a Cadet fumble to score on a three-yard touchdown run with 4:05 left. The extra point kick gave W-SR a 7-6 lead.
In the second quarter, the Go-Hawks concluded a 51-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown pass with 6:04 left. The extra point kick pushed the lead to 14-6 at halftime.

“We had some mental mistakes that hurt us throughout the game,” Cadet Coach Ryan McCarville said. “We played hard all four quarters. We just had a hard time getting over the hump. Unfortunately, we had a few bad breaks that didn’t go our way. We have to have a better week of practice and finish the season strong against Vinton-Shellsburg (Oct. 23).”
Crestwood gained 168 yards rushing on 41 attempts. Clayton Ollendieck completed six of 16 passes for 42 yards.
