Cold temperatures caused several mid-Missouri high school football teams to freeze up at home in Week 7 of the season. Battle, Southern Boone and Tolton’s offenses combined for just one touchdown, while Hickman lost a late heartbreaker. Rock Bridge, on the other hand, thoroughly dismantled Smith-Cotton to extend its winning streak.

Game of the Week: Rockhurst 29, Battle 0

Rockhurst junior tailback Wilson Selzer gets pulled down

Rockhurst junior tailback Wilson Selzer gets pulled down by Battle senior Trevonne Hicks at Battle High School on Friday. Rockhurst won the game 29-0.

The Hurry-Up: How long does it take for Battle’s offense to go from 67 to zero? Evidently, only a week, as the Spartans failed to put up any points on the board after lighting up the scoreboard against Hickman last week. Despite the game’s one-sidedness, Battle’s defense played fairly well, but a lack of push on the offensive side of the ball hurt the Spartans. Wilson Selzer had an impressive 28-yard touchdown run to seal the game for Rockhurst, dragging a couple of Battle defenders on his way to the end zone.

Up Next: Rockhurst (4-3) hosts Christian Brothers College (6-1) and Battle (4-3) visits Jefferson City (2-5).

Blair Oaks 40, Southern Boone 0

The Hurry-Up: Any hopes of Southern Boone ending Blair Oaks' historic undefeated run were quickly dashed as the Falcons jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter on their Homecoming night. Running back Riley Lintz scored three touchdowns as Blair Oaks' running game took charge in a dominant win over the Eagles.

Up Next: Southern Boone (5-2) visits California (1-6) and Blair Oaks (7-0) travels to Osage (2-5).

Rock Bridge senior fullback Miles Cheatum takes off against Smith-Cotton on Oct. 12 at Rock Bridge High School.

Smith-Cotton was outclassed, but quarterback Brett Grupe scrambled for a 35-yard score on fourth down to briefly tie the game in the second quarter.
