The Boone Central Cardinals satisfied their hunger for a second straight victory Friday night by feasting on seven – that’s right, seven – Twin River turnovers.
The Cards turned four of those turnovers into points and cruised to a 30-0 win over the visiting Titans at the Boone Central athletic field.
Boone Central improved to 2-3 overall in 2008 and remained unbeaten in Class C1-6 District play (2-0). Twin River, which entered the contest on a three-game win streak, dropped to 3-2 (1-1 in C1-6).
“We are getting better and that, of course, is what we are after,” Boone Central Coach Arnie Johnson said. “It was nice to see some big plays on offense. The defense played better as the game progressed.”
Boone Central’s performance could probably be summed up as “opportunistic”.
Boone Central had enviable balance in the game, rushing for 166 yards and passing for 158 for 324 total. Twin River finished with 173 yards on the ground and 249 total. The Cardinals had a 15-11 edge in first downs and, most importantly, the whopping 7-0 advantage in turnovers.
