Following a momentum building win last week on Homecoming night, the Madill Wildcats were hoping for a carry over Friday night as they opened district play against Cushing.

Unfortunately, the long road trip turned out to be less than desirable as the Tigers cruised to a 56-7 victory over Madill. 

Cushing opened the game with 20 points in the first quarter thanks to touchdowns from Champ Wright, followed by a pair of touchdown passes from Will Moyer to Camden Crooks and Harrison Wood.

Moyer would get two more touchdown passes in the second quarter, while Noah Jones added a rushing touchdown to build a 40-0 lead for Cushing at the half. 

After the break, Jones got his second of the night before Shelton Davis finished off the game with a three-yard touchdown run.

Madill did manage to get a late consolation score as Jorge Martinez pushed his way in from two yards out to make it 53-6 after the failed extra point. 

John Venable led the rushing for the Wildcats with 17 carries for 73 yards while Kendall Robertson had four carries for 39 yards.

The Wildcats finished with 225 yards of total offense on the night, while earning 14 first downs against Cushing.

They also had just four penalties for 20 yards in the game.

Madill (1-3, 0-1) is back in action at 7 p.m. Friday night at Blake Smiley Stadium hosting No. 1 Tuttle against the Tigers.
