Falcons open district play with shutout

OABCIG opened class 1A district nine football play with a 54-0 win over Missouri Valley in Ida Grove Friday. The dominating victory will keep the Falcons on top of the class 1A football state rankings.

Coach Larry Allen said his club got off to a bit of slow start, but it didn’t last long.

“We felt very confident going into the game,” said Allen. “We started a little slow on our first couple of plays (two incomplete passes). Then, Cooper DeJean broke that long touchdown run (43 yards) and, once we got that done, the kids settled down. When we focus on what we want to do, things just come so naturally for the kids. When they can stop thinking and get into a rhythm and just play, we are much better.
