Producing a Assertion

We began hyping this game up in the preseason and Carthage produced certain the match didn’t stay up to that buzz. The Tigers dominated equally sides of the ball and once more made a sturdy circumstance for why they could be the most effective crew in Course 5. This might be Coach Guidie’s most finish team the offensively explosive groups we’ve seen for the previous 10 years mixed with arguably his finest defense at any time. The return of Hudson Moore – whose landing just in advance of halftime ignited 21 unanswered points for Carthage – provides the Tigers however one more weapon. Luke Gall should really be both the offensive and defensive POY but the league possibly will not permit him consider both equally honors. Carthage rushed for 300+ on the ground and he experienced approximately 200 of it, placing him above 1,500 for the season. Just know he’s the most productive player on each sides of the ball. Carthage has now won 10 straight more than Nixa. The Eagles have scored far more than 14 factors in just one particular of those video games. As prolonged as they go on to individual the line of scrimmage on both equally sides of the ball – Garrett Lilienkamp, Malachi Housh and enterprise – Carthage will be a hard out… Nevada shed a challenging one particular at residence final 7 days to Mac County, so by natural means the Tigers responded by blasting Course 3 condition-rated Aurora. The Dawgs experienced permitted just 30 factors in a match 2 times this period but Nevada managed to place 41 on the board. Class 4 appears to be huge open and Nevada carries on to make its scenario as a strong contender…

The Champs are Below!!!

COC Winner – Carthage (9-)

Carthage has been the area’s most dominant team in phrases of signature wins. They also have the area’s best two-way participant in Luke Gall.

Co-Ozark Meeting Champions – Lebanon (8-1) & West Plains (7-1)

Lebanon won head-to-head but Rolla played the role of spoiler past 7 days because of to the OC not acquiring a tiebreaker. Lebanon conquer the league’s a few greatest teams – Glendale, West Plains and Camdenton – in consecutive weeks. West Plains allowed 113 details in 9 game titles and 44 of that arrived against the Jackets. Each groups will be condition championship contenders.

Massive 8 West Champion – Lamar (9-)

It’s really hard to believe this is Lamar’s 1st unbeaten regular season given that 2017. The Tigers were being brilliant on both equally sides of the ball, averaging 46.4 PPG (most considering that 2016) and permitting just 8.1 PPG (greatest since 2017). The Tigers are in position to acquire their 12th straight district championship and ninth state title in the past 11 seasons. Wow.

Significant 8 East Champion – Aurora (7-2)

Don’t be fooled by Friday’s decline. Aurora continue to went unbeaten in meeting play, beating all people by double digits. The Dawgs two losses (Mac County and Nevada) were separated by 7 consecutive wins.

Mid-Lakes Winner – Honest Grove (9-)

The Eagles are only No. 2 in Class 2 because Lamar exists. Grove has accomplished nothing at all but go Wreck It Ralph on the meeting and actually every person they’ve found, submitting 6 straight online games of 55 or more points and turbo-clocking the majority of their plan. Grove cares about profitable a convention championship but this group is centered on currently being the a single that receives around the hump against Lamar.

SCA Champion – Ava (9-)

For the fourth time in the very last 5 seasons, Ava is going for walks away with an undefeated meeting championship. The Bears have allowed just one workforce (Liberty) to score extra than 20 factors in a activity and they still mercy-ruled them.

Southwest Meeting Winner – Marionville (9-)

At just one stage this year, Marionville didn’t permit a level for 4 straight video games. The Bears shutout four opponents and held a few much more to just a single rating. The groups that managed to rating far more – Pierce Metropolis and Sarcoxie – have been boat raced to the tune of 112-38 and these each arrived on the street. The Comets are once more for authentic and have received 18 straight standard year games.

This and That

Hollister (6-3) finished the year around .500 for the initial time in plan background, scoring more factors than any group in plan record as very well. And – for the to start with time in system historical past – they’ll host a playoff sport. Mentor Johnson and firm killed it this year… Speaking of heritage, McDonald County won as a lot of games this 12 months on your own than any two-yr interval the system has observed more than the very last two decades. The Mustangs (8-1) will also host at minimum one particular playoff activity for the 2nd consecutive 12 months, some thing that hasn’t happened in ages… Rogersville begun the season -3 but completed with 6 straight wins. The outrageous section is none of them ended up actually that close. The Cats have flipped a change, placing jointly again-to-back profitable seasons for the 1st time considering that the 2011 state championship group…  Rolla started just 1-2 but rebounded by successful five of their last six to end the year, which includes an upset of earlier unbeaten Lebanon. The Bulldogs were being one particular possession away from upsetting Glendale in 7 days 2. This is yet one more sleeper in Class 5… Skyline is scarce in that all three of its losses – Valle Catholic, Honest Grove and Warsaw – arrived to groups that were unbeaten at the time of the sport. The Tigers have righted the ship, with wins in five of their final six games and two of their a few losses this year arrived by 1 issue each and every. The record will not wow you, but with context, it is easy to see why this is however a further team that could make a deep run in Course 1.

Week 10 Upset Warn (if seeds keep)

No. 6 Branson (3-6) at No. 3 Rolla (6-3)
What to Know: What tends to make this a risky just one for Rolla is the simple fact that Branson has long gone through the COC all calendar year, which is a superior league than the Ozark Conference best to bottom. Branson played within just a possession of Joplin, but has also seen Nixa, Webb Metropolis and Carthage. They will not be overwhelmed by what they see (physically) from Rolla. I like the Bulldogs this calendar year but this is a sneaky rough match.

No. 7 Reeds Spring (3-6) at No. 2 Hollister (6-3)
The Tale: Hollister won the normal-season meeting (26-20). Reeds Spring received the earlier 13 conferences.
What to Know: These two played just a month back and it was a a person-possession sport. Prior to that Hollister experienced under no circumstances (ever) beaten Reeds Spring. It’s a rivalry match and a year-ender, which feels a very little different. This has been a historic operate for Hollister, can they proceed it on the biggest phase? .
