Area football capsules for Week 6

Here are area football capsules for South Callaway, Tipton, School of the Osage, Eldon, Versailles, Hallsville, Warsaw, Southern Boone and Camdenton.

South Callaway at Battle

The South Callaway Bulldogs might finally get tested.

While ripping off five straight victories to begin the 2013 slate, South Callaway’s closest call was a 25-point victory against Hermann.

That likely won’t be the case at 7 p.m. Friday at Battle in Columbia.

Battle, playing its first season of varsity football, is 4-1 and coming off a 45-7 pasting of Gateway Tech.

The Spartans also own wins against Kansas City East (56-6), Butler (45-21) and Carnahan (49-28). The lone loss came to Hannibal (42-27).

Battle is a Class 4 squad, but is not eligible for the postseason because it started play in the second year of the two-year district cycle by the Missouri High School Activites Association.

South Callaway, meanwhile, owns wins against North Callaway (31-0), Crystal City (46-6), Scotland County (55-0), Hermann and Tipton (44-0). The Bulldogs are ranked fourth in Class 2.

Battle’s junior running back Nash Sutherline has racked up more 500 rushing yards to go along with nine touchdowns so far this season.

South Callaway’s Troy Hentges has tossed seven touchdowns passes and rushed for seven scores.

Butler vs. Tipton

The Tipton Cardinals ran into a buzzsaw last Friday night.

Tipton fell 44-0 to undefeated Class 2 No. 4 South Callaway. Now the Cardinals get a relative breather, as they face Butler at 7 p.m. Friday at Lincoln High School.

Butler (1-4) is coming off a 74-7 loss to Class 2 No. 1 Lamar last Friday. The Bears’ other three losses haven’t been particularly close, either, falling to Adrian (39-0), Battle (45-21) and Van Horn (49-7).

Butler’s lone victory was a 20-14 triumph against Sherwood in Week 2.

Tipton (2-3) owns wins against Windsor (49-6) and Father Tolton (20-13), with additional losses against Sedalia Sacred Heart (39-0) and North Callaway (26-20, OT).

Butler likes to rush the ball, racking up 741 yards on the ground through five games. The Bears have just 185 yards passing.

Quarterback Cameron Rice is the featured runner, amassing 389 yards on 64 carries with two scores. Brett Miller leads the way with four touchdowns while rushing 53 times for 149 yards.

School of the Osage at Eldon

This one could be a shootout.

School of the Osage travels to Eldon in a rivalry matchup of high-powered offenses at 7 p.m. Friday.

Eldon (3-2) averages better than 40 points per game and is coming off a pair of blowout victories against Warsaw (62-19) and Versailles (56-0).

Osage (2-3) averages 32 points per contest and put up 29 points in a 32-point loss to Blair Oaks last Friday.

Eldon also owns a 41-14 win against Buffalo. The Mustangs have losses to Miller Career Academy (48-42) and California (38-0).

Eldon spoiled Versailles’ Homecoming last Friday, holding the Tigers to 26 yards of total offense.

The Mustangs racked up 418 yards on 44 plays. Raymond Kwok led the attack with 101 rushing yards and three scores.

Osage also has wins against Southern Boone (45-20) and Versailles (57-0), with additional losses to Fulton (28-22) and Moberly (34-7).

Osage racked up 416 yards of offense in their loss to the Falcons. Austin Riley went 23-of-42 passing for 357 yards.

Versailles at Hallsville

This Tri-County Conference contest is just for bragging rights really.

With California and Blair Oaks by far the class of the conference, the battle is for the remaining places in the standings.

That includes this tilt at 7 p.m. Friday.

Hallsville (3-2) owns wins against Fayette (42-12), Paris (40-24) and a league victory at Warsaw (52-34). The Indians have a pair of conference losses to Blair Oaks (38-8) and California (57-8).

Skyler Creed leads the way with 440 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Versailles (0-5) has losses to Knob Noster (35-32), Fulton (44-33), Warsaw (40-16), School of the Osage (57-0) and Eldon (56-0).

The Tigers managed just 26 yards of total offense in last week’s contest against Eldon.

Warsaw at Southern Boone

One team will break a losing streak in this one.

Warsaw looks to stop a two-game streak, while Southern Boone hopes to end a three-game slide when the teams meet at 7 p.m. Friday.

Warsaw opened the season with three straight wins, topping last season’s win total in the process, before dropping its last two.

The Wildcats have wins against Clinton (49-15), Cole Camp (47-25) and Versailles (40-16), with losses against Eldon (62-19) and Hallsville (52-34).

Southern Boone hasn’t scored a point the last two contests, albeit both came against a pair of Class 2 powerhouses. The Eagles’ lone win was a 32-28 triumph against Father Tolton. The losses are against Kirksville (40-26), Osage (45-20), Blair Oaks (48-0) and California (42-0).

David Holland leads the Eagles with 480 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

Rolla at Camdenton

Look for the Camdenton Lakers to roll in this one.

Camdenton (4-1), ranked 10th in Class 5, takes on winless Rolla at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Lakers got back on track with a 34-15 victory at Parkview last Friday following a 21-19 loss to Kickapoo. Camdenton also owns wins against Hillcrest (17-14), West Plains (35-15) and Lebanon (20-17).

Rolla (0-5) has losses to Lebanon (27-7), Kickapoo (49-14), Parkview (27-20), Joplin (35-7) and Waynesville (32-17).
