A week off appeared to help the Missouri Cyclones.

Returning to football action last Saturday at Mehlville High School after a bye week, the Cyclones ripped apart the St. Louis Spirit, cruising to a 42-0 victory.

“We scored every time we had the ball with our starters in the game during the first half, with the exception of a Hail Mary that was intercepted right before halftime,” said Cyclones Head Coach Troy Robertson. “The Spirit have been around since 2002. They have one win since 2008, and that was by forfeit. We’re in the weak part of our schedule right now. It’s a good opportunity for us to try to get healthy and work on a few things.”

The Cyclones (3-2) visit the Gateway Hawks Saturday at Two Rivers Sports Complex in Flint Hill, located in St. Charles County. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Hawks are coming off a 75-12 loss last week against the Midwest Chargers.

The next home game at Borgia for the Cyclones is scheduled for Saturday, July 20, against the Illinois Justice at 7 p.m.

“We have some positive energy right now,” Robertson said. “We’ve won two games in a row and are getting a few guys back from injuries. There are some interesting things happening in the league. The Detroit Ravens, who we lost to 6-3 in last year’s championship game, were upset over the weekend by the Chicago Cardinals, 36-30. We lost to the Cardinals 20-14 this season. It will be interesting to see what happens in the league for the rest of the season.”

Whatever happens down the stretch, the Cyclones will be doing it without their starting quarterback, BJ Buckner, for the remainder of the season. He has torn tendons in his non-throwing thumb and hasn’t played much over the last few games.

Deon Morris has replaced Buckner as the Cyclones’ quarterback in recent games and will continue that role for the rest of the season.

Morris completed five of 12 passes against the Spirit for 58 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 26 yards on four carries.

With Morris leading the offense against the Spirit, the Cyclones jumped to leads of 14-0 after one quarter and 35-0 at halftime.

The Cyclones increased their lead to 42-0 in the third quarter.

“We didn’t throw the ball much. We did have three passing touchdowns. Two of them came on screens,” Robertson said. “That’s the way we’ll be for the rest of the season, probably 65-35 run to pass. We had Tim Jones back, which helped our running game. Daryle Jones had a long touchdown run (57 yards). In the second half, we basically had quarterback tryouts, and it wasn’t pretty.”

Daryle Jones rushed for 104 yards on six attempts and scored two touchdowns.

Tim Jones carried the ball four times for 21 yards and one touchdown. He also scored on a 15-yard reception.

Malcolm Owens rushed for 30 yards on three attempts. Adam Amato (Union) carried the ball two times for 22 yards. Bobby Vondera (Union) rushed for six yards on three attempts.

Jason Boyd (16 yards and one touchdown) and Raphael Perry (six yards) both had two receptions.

Chad Stanley added a 28-yard touchdown catch.

Newcomers to the Cyclones are area products Phillip Lashley (St. Clair) and Cory Alfermann (Washington).

Lashley finished with five total tackles, three solos and two assists.

“Lashley played well. He saw some time at cornerback, receiver and special teams,” Robertson said. “Alfermann didn’t play. He’s a lineman who’s coming off an injury. We’re easing him back into it.”

The Cyclones dominated on the defensive side of the ball.

Jason Null registered three sacks and four total tackles. Stave Hatcher added two sacks and three tackles. Bo Claggette added 1.5 sacks and three stops.

Devi Greer and Keith Homco both had five total tackles. Greer and Mac Harris both had two interceptions.

Evan Brinker (Washington) added three tackles.

“We had six or seven quarterback sacks and Jason Null was probably in on four of them,” Robertson said. “We’re still missing some players on both sides of the ball.”
