On a steamy 'fall' night, Falcons celebrate homecoming with victory
WARDSVILLE --- The first day of Fall felt like the first day of August, so perhaps you were expecting something unexpected Friday night.
It may have happened somewhere, but not in Wardsville.
Blair Oaks won.
The Falcons extended their regular season winning streak 26 straight --- Terry Walker is now 24-0 in such games in his third year as head coach --- as Blair Oaks celebrated Homecoming with a 30-7 win over the Southern Boone Eagles 30-7 on a steamy night at the Falcon Athletic Complex.
Week 6 gave us the hottest night of the 2017 season, leaving us yearning back to those cool days of August.
The Eagles were coming off a silly 55-51 win over Osage, in a game Southern Boone won despite giving up a staggering 611 yards of total offense. This affair was the antithesis of that one. --- Southern Boone (3-3) played much better defense, allowing 21 fewer points and 320 few yards, but lost.
That's because the second-ranked Falcons (6-0) did what they do --- play great defense.
Blair Oaks took a 6-0 lead on its first possession, going 80 yards in eight plays, capped on a a 33-yard pass from Cade Stockman to a wide open Ben Thomas down the left sideline on 4th-and-7. On a night when little came easy offensively for either team, this one was quite easy.
