WARDSVILLE --- The Wright City Wildcats came to Wardsville with a bit of a chippy attitude.

They wanted to make it one of those games, it was clear.

Well, this was not a good idea. Or, call it a Wrong move by the folks from the City of Wright.

Because these Blair Oaks Falcons reflect the attitude of their head coach, Terry Walker.

Who happens to a 22-year Air Force veteran, retiring with a rank of Lt. Colonel.

So it was no surprise that the Falcons were happy to go toe-to-toe and nose-to-nose with the Wildcats.

In a physical game with several borderline late hits --- and some that crossed the border --- Nolan Hair threw for 367 yards and four touchdowns as the Falcons knocked out the Wildcats 72-26 in the Class 3 District 6 semifinals Friday night at the Falcon Athletic Complex.

This is not to say the Wildcats (6-5) didn't land their share of body blows in this bout, because they did. Just not enough of them.

The 26 points ties the highest total the second-ranked Falcons (11-0) have allowed this season, and it's 17 points above their season average allowed.

Having said that, the outcome was never in doubt, because this was a season-high in points scored by Blair Oaks --- not surprisingly --- and 40 points above its season average.
