Cascade rolls over Monroe

EVERETT – Monroe got buried in Snow as Cascade captured a 52-0 Western Conference North football victory Thursday at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Cascade senior defensive end Tony Snow had two sacks, two fumble recoveries and several hard-hitting tackles for loss to cause the Monroe offense to have a long night.

Cascade (2-2 in league and overall) will meet Mount Vernon (2-0, 3-0 going into today’s game) next Friday at Mount Vernon High School.

Snow sacked the Monroe kicker on the 6-yard line on the opening drive of the game to set up a Cascade touchdown.

“Tony Snow is a great football player, he goes 100 percent every play, giving it everything he’s got,” Cascade coach Rollie Wilson said.

Mike Skoor scored the opening touchdown on a 9-yard pass from Paul Curtiss.

Skoor caught a 44-yard pass from Curtiss for Cascade’s second touchdown with 4:30 left in the first quarter.

Jimmy Ward scored on a 1-yard run to put Cascade up 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Snow finished off the first-half scoring on a 3-yard run to put the Bruins up 26-0.

Opening the second half, Cascade kick returner Dan Jackson took the ball on his own 3-yard line and ran up the right side of the field 97 yards for the touchdown.

Cascade add three more touchdowns on runs of 44, 52, and 10 yards from Corey Sizemore, Andy Fortino and Jason Garcia, respectively.

Curtiss was 4-for-5 for 114 yards with two touchdowns, all coming in the first half. Skoor finished with three receptions for 84 yards and two touchdowns.

Monroe (0-4, 0-4) exposed a weakness in Cascade’s kicking game as it kept the Bruins from converting six of eight point after tries.

Monroe’s task in the Northern Division does not get any easier as it will host Snohomish (1-1, 1-2 going into today’s game) at Monroe Stadium next Friday.
