The Southern Boone Eagles football team did exactly what it needed to do on Friday night, coming away from Warsaw with a 49-21 Tri-County Conference win.
Although, it didn’t exactly go as planned.
The Eagles didn’t plan on starting out getting burned on defense by a long pass reception. And they certainly didn’t plan on keeping the Wildcats out of the end zone with a Brian Kent interception.
After the Wildcats hit their long bomb to get into scoring position, Kent intercepted the Warsaw quarterback’s pass – a rare thing for a defensive lineman – and sprinted 70-yards to the Wildcats 15-yard line before he was hauled down by a Warsaw receiver.
From there….it was all SoBoCo.
The Eagles got a 9-yard TD run from Jackson Sartain and in the second quarter got four TDs – two on the ground and two in the air.
Spencer Taggart had a 12-21 passing and 3 TDs with one interception and got his first TD pass to Sam Stichnote for the second Eagles score.
Taggart then hit Kolton Schupp for a 15-yard TD strike to make the score 21-0.
After Taggart completed the third TD drive of the quarter for a 1-yard quarterback sneak and a TD, Warsaw came back for a 2-yard TD run of their own.
