Cuthbertson was clicking on all cylinders Wednesday night.

Cuthbertson scored touchdowns on its first four possessions and the defense held Anson County to 27 yards of offense in the first half as the Cavaliers rolled to a 48-6 victory over the Bearcats at Cavalier Stadium.

The game was originally scheduled to be played Friday but was moved up two days because of the threat of strong storms in the area. Cuthbertson (1-2) now has over a week to prepare for Kings Mountain, which visits Sept. 8 for the Cavaliers’ final nonconference game. Cuthbertson begins Southern Carolina Conference play Sept. 22 at home against Parkwood.

Cuthbertson scored touchdowns on five of its six first half possessions in building a 34-0 halftime lead. The Cavaliers defense held Anson County to minus-12 yards of offense on the Bearcats first five offensive possessions of the game.

Anson County’s only touchdown came on the final play of the game.

Cuthbertson quarterback Davis Walker was 11 of 16 passing for 172 yards and three touchdowns. Josh Blocker caught six passes for 83 yards and one touchdown.

Myles Wallace rushed 13 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns while Logan Mauldin had nine totes for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Wallace returned the opening kickoff 79 yards to the Anson County 16 and the Cavaliers scored three plays later for a 6-0 lead.

Joseph Rizzo led the Cuthbertson defensive charge with 12 tackles while defensive back Jackson Cheek had two interceptions. Cuthbertson junior Addison Hedin blocked an Anson County punt that set up the Cavaliers second touchdown.
