WARDSVILLE, Mo. - Playing slightly more than two quarters, the Blair Oaks starters on defense made their presence felt.

The Falcons racked up five sacks, blocked two punts and intercepted a pass while blanking the Southern Boone Eagles 48-0 at the Falcon Athletic Complex.

"There was improvement, and there's still room for more improvement, but there were some really good things that happened tonight," Blair Oaks coach Brad Drehle said.

The Blair Oaks starters gave up less than 100 yards of total offense before departing early in the third quarter with a 41-0 lead.

In the end, the Falcons ended up with a 470-156 advantage in total yards while improving to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the Tri-County Conference.

The Eagles, meanwhile, dropped to 1-3 and 0-2.

Blair Oaks scored on the game's first play from scrimmage, as Dominic Jamerson raced 74 yards for a touchdown just 22 seconds into the game. Chris Cooper followed and started a perfect 6-of-6 night on PATs to make it 7-0.

Just three minutes later, the Falcons made it 14-0 on a 25-yard scoring run by Caleb Bischoff.

Blair Oaks then tacked on three touchdowns in the second quarter - all on passes from Jordan Hair. The sophomore connected on scoring strikes of 41 yards to Haydn Lock, 10 yards to Jamerson and 69 yards to Mikel Drehle.

Up 34-0 at halftime, Blair Oaks had a 361-61 edge in yardage, as Southern Boone rushed the ball 27 times for just 16 yards.

"Our tackling needed to improve and we took a step forward tonight," Brad Drehle said.

The Falcons' final two scores came in the third quarter, on a 34-yard run by Jamerson and a 47-yard dash by Bischoff.

The duo had a big night, as Jamerson had 143 yards on just six carries and Bischoff racked up 130 yards on seven carries.

Hair ended up completing 10-of-16 passes for 123 yards.

David Holland, the main threat in the Southern Boone lineup, ended up with just 62 yards rushing on 21 carries.

Blair Oaks returns to action at 7 p.m. Friday when it travels to School of the Osage.
