WARDSVILLE, Mo. - You can have the best game plan in the world, but if you can't execute it, you're sunk.
Not only did the Blair Oaks Falcons have a great plan for playing the Hogan Prep Rams, but they worked it to perfection Friday night.
The Falcons knew they needed to keep the Rams, last year's state runner-up in Class 3, off the boards to have a chance to win. Blair Oaks did just that, racking up a 41-30 edge in rebounds while capturing a 60-54 victory.
"Against a team with the athleticism they have, we knew that was a top priority of ours," Blair Oaks coach Ryan Fick said. "And more so than finding a body, we just had to go get the ball, and I thought we did a good job of that."
