WARDSVILLE, Mo. --- Blair Oaks faced 4th-and-23 from its own five in the second quarter Friday night.

The play call was obvious.

Swing pass.

Say again?

Swing pass.

You could call this no guts, no glory, I suppose. Well, it turned into a 72-yard gain.

A brilliant play call, obviously.

For shock value alone, it was the play of the game, this pass from would-be-punter/quarterback Nolan Hair to Riley Lentz, who broke a tackle around the 10 and nearly took it the distance.

Even though it led to no points --- the Falcons turned it over two plays later --- but it flipped the field, if nothing else, and eventually led to one of Hair's three touchdown passes in Blair Oaks' 46-7 thumping of the the Oak Grove Panthers at the Falcons Athletic Complex.

That play is the conversation starter --- and it's a good one. The end of the conversation was the rest of the game, which was a dominant effort by the Falcons.
