Boone Central’s football game at Douglas County West in Valley Friday night went from an early battle to a Cardinal rampage.
Following a few stutters and an interception, Boone Central (2-1) took a 21-0 halftime lead with a pair of second period touchdowns and polished off a 40-0 running-clock victory in the second half.
“This was an interesting game – a new opponent in a new place – and it had an ‘uneasy vibe’ from the time we got there,” said Cardinal Coach Mark Hudson. “It appeared the sprinklers had been left on during the week while it rained – the field was in poor condition when we arrived. We were a little sluggish, as we had some nerves to begin with, but once we settled down and the defense had a goal line stand in the second quarter, the momentum really shifted our way and we started to play better.
“All three phases of the game played better and contributed. It was a ‘feel good’ win, as it’s been awhile since we had a running clock victory.”
