Blair Oaks, Higginsville head into Class 2 semifinal clash

November 19th, 2011 in News

WARDSVILLE, Mo. - When the Blair Oaks Falcons and Higginsville Huskers meet today in the Class 2 state semifinals, the determining factor could be as simple as which team executes better.

That's because the teams will share a couple of striking similarities when they get together at 1:30 p.m. at the Falcon Athletic Complex.

The first one comes when listing the weapons on offense.

"We're almost mirror images of each other," Blair Oaks coach Brad Drehle said. "We're very similar in we've got a good running back and quarterback standing back there, and we've got some receivers who can catch it. It will be interesting to see what they do with us."

The next similarity comes in the pace of play.
