HALLSVILLE, Mo. - The Blair Oaks Falcons got a dominant performance from Dominic Jamerson on both sides of the ball, and used that to help them claim a 38-8 win over the Hallsville Indians on Friday night.
The junior accounted for 295 yards from scrimmage, scored three touchdowns and intercepted two passes as the Falcons won their Tri-County Conference opener and improved to 2-1 overall.
Jamerson carried the ball 15 times for 232 yards, including an 83-yard scoring run the first time he touched the ball.
"Wow," Blair Oaks coach Brad Drehle said simply when told of Jamerson's total after the contest. "He had a big ball game."
After Blair Oaks fumbled the ball on its first play from scrimmage, the Falcons came up with defensive stand of the game soon after. The Indians marched the ball 51 yards in 13 plays to bring up a fourth-and-goal at the Blair Oaks 1-yard line. But the Falcons turned the Indians away to maintain momentum.
Later in the quarter, Jamerson got things rolling with Blair Oaks' first score on an 83-yard dash that made it 7-0 with 3:24 left in the first quarter.
Then with :41 left in the first, Jamerson caught a 61-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Hair and the Falcons were up 13-0.
"I felt like our kids came out and did what we asked them to do, which was play fast and play hard," Drehle said.
Blair Oaks ran the lead to 19-0 when Jamerson added a 5-yard touchdown run with 7:31 left in the first half.
While Jamerson got the Falcons' first three scores, their last three came from Haydn Lock.
The senior got his first with 2:50 remaining before intermission when he caught a 4-yard pass from Hair to make it 25-0.
In the third quarter, Hair and Lock hooked up on a 20-yard scoring pass to make it 31-0.
Then in the fourth, with Lock switching from wideout to quarterback, he led a scoring drive he capped with a 9-yard touchdown run.
Hallsville's only score came in the fourth quarter when a poor pitch by the Falcons was scooped up by Kyle Borland and returned 58 yards for a touchdown.
The Falcons outgained the Indians 518-224 in the contest, while each team had 15 first downs.
Blair Oaks carried the ball 36 times for 311 yards, while Hair completed 12-of-20 passes for 207 yards.
Hallsville (2-1, 0-1) had 50 carries for just 69 yards and completed 12-of-25 passes for 155 yards.
The Falcons return to action Friday when they host Southern Boone.
