Boone Central can’t keep step with Cadets

With an aggressive front line and speedy fullhouse backfield, West Point-Beemer (3-3) put Boone Central on its heels Friday night and scored a 28-13 victory in Class C1 football action at the Boone Central athletic field.
On a damp, windy night that affected the pass and kick portions of play, the visiting Cadets rode multiple offensive weapons to 383 total yards – 325 rushing – while holding Boone Central (2-4) to just 111 rushing yards and 187 total yards.
After the Cardinals took an early 6-0 lead in the contest, West Point-Beemer racked up 21 second-period points and kept Boone Central at bay with ball-control offensive and a swarming defensive unit.
“Disappointing night,” Card Coach Mark Hudson said. “We had played two decent ballgames in a row and hoped to step it up and compete with West Point-Beemer. After getting off to a good start, we didn’t handle adversity and, opposite of the previous week against Logan View where we benefited from a couple of big momentum plays that went our way, we had 3-4 plays in the second and third quarters go their way and didn’t respond very well.
“We continued to fight and work at getting better, and being able to finish the game off with a touchdown is a good positive to build off.”
