Camdenton puts on offensive clinic at Springfield Central
The Camdenton offense has not skipped a beat in 2019.
Finishing as one of the state's best a season ago averaging 46.3 points per game, the Lakers have matched that figure through the first three games of 2019 and will see that number increase significantly after an 88-0 thumping of the Bulldogs at Springfield Central Friday night.
The Lakers jumped out to a 40-0 lead by the end of the first quarter and it was 60-0 by halftime.
Camdenton senior quarterback Paxton Delaurent threw seven touchdowns in the rout as he completed 25 of his 29 pass attempts for 415 yards. Meanwhile, junior quarterback Jacob Wormsley also got some work in throwing for 88 yards and a touchdown of his own.
Junior wideout Cooper Ezard led the receiving corps with five catches for 137 yards and four touchdowns. Meanwhile, senior Jase Nicklas hauled in six receptions for 88 yards and a score, junior Jadin Faulconer had three catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns and senior Talon Randazzo added five receptions for 42 yards and a score.
The Laker defense was just as relentless, holding Springfield Central to -15 rushing yards while allowing just 60 yards through the air.
Camdenton (4-0, 4-0 Ozark Conference) host a winless Hillcrest team Friday night at 7 p.m.
Osage blanked by Hallsville
It was not the night School of the Osage had hoped for.
The Indians welcomed Hallsville for their Homecoming game Friday night and the visiting Indians made things tough on the gridiron as they walked away with a 47-0 shutout win. It was just an 8-0 game after the first quarter, but Hallsville broke things open in the second as they tacked on 24 more unanswered points.
Osage senior quarterback Drew Edwards completed eight of his 18 passes for 87 yards and two interceptions. The ground game did not fare much better as the Indians rushed for 113 total yards as a team. Sophomore Connor Kinder led the way with 58 yards on five carries while senior Haden Wood put up 23 yards of his own on his five rushing attempts and senior James Hutchcraft finished with 19 yards on six attempts.
Osage (2-2, 1-1 Tri-County Conference) will visit Boonville (3-1) Friday night at 7 p.m.
Eldon unable to keep pace with Southern Boone
Eldon hosted state-ranked Southern Boone Friday night and the Eagles, ranked sixth in the latest Class 3 statewide media poll, had just a bit more in the tank in a 50-22 win over the Mustangs.
At one point in the second quarter Eldon seized a 16-14 lead, but Southern Boone came back to regain a 22-16 lead at the break and extended its lead by two touchdowns at the end of the third quarter.
Eldon put up 301 rushing yards on the night with sophomore quarterback Dallas Hardy leading the way at 99 yards on 15 carries for two touchdowns. Senior fullback Kaden Dillon tagged on 92 rushing yards and a score on 25 carries, senior receiver Nathaniel Wardenburg put up 59 rushing yards on seven carries and junior receiver Owen Levesque put up 39 rushing yards on 15 attempts of his own.
Hardy completed two of his eight pass attempts for 24 yards and an interception with one pass going to Dillon for 14 yards and the other going to junior receiver Ian Birdno for 10 yards respectively.
The Southern Boone offense had a fairly productive night itself, putting up 410 total yards of offense with 314 of those yards coming on the ground and another 96 coming through the air.
Eldon (0-4, 0-2 Tri-County Conference) will visit undefeated Blair Oaks on Friday night at 7 p.m.
