Playing at home for the first time in three weeks, the Missouri Cyclones snapped a two-game losing streak with a 20-15 football victory over the Missouri Valley Pitbulls Saturday at Borgia.

The Cyclones (2-2) held a 20-2 advantage after three quarters. The Pitbulls made things interesting by outscoring the Cyclones 13-0 in the fourth quarter.

“We had a couple of turnovers that gave them some momentum, but our running game got back on track,” said Cyclones Head Coach Troy Robertson. “We had only 30 guys, which was less than the other team, and it was our home game. We had a few guys playing both ways. We’re still dealing with injuries. I was proud of our guys. We played with a lot of heart.”

The Cyclones’ home game Saturday against the Nashville Storm has been canceled. They return to action Saturday, July 6, against the St. Louis Spirit at Mehlville High School at 3 p.m.

“We need a week off to get healthy,” Robertson said. “We were missing two linemen, our quarterback and half of our secondary, just to name a few.”

Robertson said the Cyclones will add players during the week off, including Washington graduate Cory Alfermann and St. Clair graduate Phillip Lashley.

Alferman will play on the offensive line. Lashley will be used at receiver, running back and defensive back.

Leading throughout the contest, the Cyclones held advantages of 7-2 after one quarter, 13-2 at halftime and 20-2 after three quarters.

Handling the quarterback duties was Deon Morris, who was 8-18 passing for 130 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also rushed for 29 yards on eight attempts.

The one touchdown pass came on a 61-yard strike to Jeff Kolkmeier.

The Cyclones had a balanced rushing attack with Daryle Jones and Mac Harris, who both found the end zone.

Jones carried the ball 13 times for 66 yards and scored one touchdown. He also had two catches for three yards.

Harris rushed for 60 yards on 12 attempts and scored one touchdown.

Chad Stanley finished the game with two receptions for 27 yards.

Jason Boyd added two catches for 23 yards.

Kolkmeier had one catch for 61 yards and a touchdown.

Andy Mundwiller added one reception for 16 yards.

Defensively, the Cyclones were led by Bo Claggette, who registered seven total tackles and also recovered a fumble.

Steven Cook and Kayland Lyles both added six total stops.

Devi Greer and Charles Henry both had five total tackles.

Evan Brinker and Greer both had an interception.
