Eldon football cruises for third straight win over Owensville

The last two times Eldon met Owensville, it took a fairly large amount of points to take down the Dutchmen.

The Mustangs did not have to put up nearly as many on Friday night as they secured a 34-6 win on the road to move to 2-0. After two high-scoring shootouts a season ago that featured a pair of Eldon wins by final scores of 72-69 and 70-53, the Mustangs built a 26-0 lead by halftime against the team they have faced in the past two district championship games and cruised the rest of the way.

Eldon scored on all but one of its possessions in the first half and the team was more than happy to take advantage of four Owensville turnovers. 

Senior running back Isaiah Parsons led the charge offensively, accumulating 138 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries. Meanwhile, senior quarterback Dawson Brandt completed five of his 10 pass attempts for 96 yards and rushed for 65 more while running in two touchdowns while junior running back Logan Hall added 89 yards on the ground and hauled in three passes for another 38 yards respectively.  

Now, Eldon will look to remain unbeaten when the Mustangs come home to open up Tri-County Conference play against Hallsville on Friday at 7 p.m. 

Osage football shut down on rainy night in Moberly

School of the Osage could not quite find its footing on a rain-soaked field at Moberly Friday night.

After a half hour delay, the Indians and Spartans went to battle but the night belonged to the hosts as they handed the visitors a 34-0 shutout in the first meeting between the two sides since 2015. Moberly held just a 7-0 advantage at the break, but the Spartans scored on all four possessions in the second half to run away with it putting up about 381 total yards of offense to Osage’s 84.

Moberly’s first score of the night came near the end of the first quarter on a 59-yard dash to the end zone and was followed by a 12-yard touchdown pass and runs of 32 yards, eight yards and and four yards respectively. Meanwhile, Osage never managed to enter the red zone.

The Indians compiled 70 rushing yards on 46 carries with sophomore tailback Jack Dulle leading the way as he totaled 40 yards on the ground. Sophomore running back Kennan Webb contributed 22 rushing yards while senior quarterback Dalton Depeé put up 18 yards on the ground and completed four of his nine pass attempts for 14 yards and an interception.

Osage (1-1) will look to bounce back in a trip to California Friday night for the Tri-County Conference opener with the Pintos. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
