DOVER-Crawfordsville (2-2, 0-2 SAC) learned why Western Boone (4-0, 2-0) is the remaining undefeated team in the Sagamore Athletic Conference Friday evening, losing to the Stars 63-7.

Western Boone got things rolling early, and often, in the first half. They took the opening kickoff and marched 67-yards in 4-plays, taking 1:03 off the clock. It was capped off by a 37-yard pass from Nathaniel Bye to Parker Boone for the quick 7-0 lead.

Crawfordsville's first possession resulted in a three and out giving Western Boone possession at the Crawfordsville 46. It was the senior Zach Martin carrying the ball all 3 times, the last from 3-yards out, to give the Stars a 14-0 lead.

Crawfordsville would be down 28-0 before they put together a 14-play drive that ate up 7:24 off the clock. The big play of the drive came on 2nd and 10 at their own 30-yard line. Johnson found Chandler Snow for 24-yards putting the Athenians in Star territory for the first time. Four plays later, Western Boone was called for a pass interference on Tyler Reeves giving the Athenians the ball WeBo's 24-yard line. The drive was capped off with a 3-yard run by Robert Manns. Trent Johnson was a perfect 4-4 on the drive for 37-yards.

Coach Mike Hammons liked how the kids responded in that drive.

"They came out and kept playing. Offensively they moved the ball here and there. Defensively, if you can't tackle, you won't win," he said.

Western Boone would score three more times in the half, the last coming on a 21-yard pass from Bye to Riggs Baxter with no time remaining to give the Stars a 49-7 lead at Half.

Western Boone had seven plays of 20 plus yards in the first half, and their average starting field position was mid-field.

They had 368 yards of total offense in the first half and would finish with 550. Crawfordsville had 61 yards in the first half and would finish with 123.

When asked about the Stars quick start, that saw them score on all seven possessions, Hammons said, "we lacked understanding our assignments, which caused confusion. The confusion took away from our aggressiveness."

Western Boone Coach, Justin Pelley, was impressed with his team's performance.

"We got going from the beginning, and it snowballed from there. We made some in-game adjustments, and the offense rolled," he said.

Western Boone would score twice in the second half. Once in the 3rd quarter on a 27-yard Zach Belcher scamper, and another in the 4th quarter on a 32-yard Ryan Solomon.

"We were in a position to make plays defensively. We just didn't make them," commented Coach Hammons.

"We have four seniors on the offensive line, and we have a couple of guys that can hit the inside runs, and a couple that can hit the outside runs. We played WeBo football tonight," commented Coach Pelley.

The Athenians will look to bounce back next Friday when they host Sagamore, and county rival, Southmont at the Athenian Complex.
