Falcon linemen make the difference in win over Westwood

Football games are often won or lost at the line of scrimmage. O-A/BC-IG coach Larry Allen noted the play of his linemen in the season opening 21-6 conquest of non-district foe Westwood at Olsen Stadium in Sioux City Saturday.

“We played more physical than Westwood upfront,” noted Allen. “After last year (45-6 loss to Westwood) we knew we had to stop their dive play. Coach Travis Chizek (Falcon assistant coach) had a plan and our kids executed it nearly flawless.

“We played sound, very unselfish football. The guys upfront had to sacrifice themselves and everybody did their job on nearly every play.”
