Make it four straight victories for the Missouri Cyclones football team.

Returning to home action Saturday night at Borgia High School, the Cyclones knocked off the Illinois Justice, 29-8.

“We played well. I saw glimpses of Cyclones teams of the past,” said Cyclones Head Coach Troy Robertson. “We’ve been playing better football in our past few games. Hopefully we can keep it going.”

The win sets up a showdown between the Cyclones (5-2) and the Midwest Chargers (6-1) Saturday at Mehlville High School at 7 p.m.

The Chargers won Saturday over the Missouri Valley Pitbulls, 28-0, and defeated the Cyclones earlier in the season at Borgia, 27-7.

“We have to neutralize their defensive line and create pressure on defense, two things we didn’t do the last time we played them,” Robertson said. “We gave their quarterback too much time in the last game. They converted too many third downs. They have a lot of speed.”

The Cyclones held leads over the Justice of 14-0 after one quarter, 17-8 at halftime and 20-8 after three quarters.

A balanced offensive attack was presented by the Cyclones, who accumulated 134 yards rushing and 133 yards passing.

Quarterback Deon Morris completed nine of 15 passes for 133 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 50 yards on seven attempts.

Adam Amato (Union) carried the ball six times for 47 yards and scored one touchdown. His longest run went for 17 yards.

“Amato played well,” Robertson said. “We had to take him out of the game in the third quarter. He got hit pretty hard and we thought he might have had a concussion.”

Malcolm Owens rushed for 19 yards on seven carries. He also had one catch for 27 yards. Chris Covey added 18 yards on two attempts. Evan Brinker (Washington) and Kyle Duffy both carried the ball one time.

Chad Stanley finished with two receptions for 20 yards. He had a pair of 10-yard touchdown catches.

“Stanley is one of the top tight ends in the league,” Robertson said.

Chris Mosley caught two passes for 44 yards, including a 39-yard reception.

“Mosley stepped in and made some nice catches,” Robertson said.

Matt Askew finished with two catches for 21 yards.

Bobby Vondera (Union) and Brennon Keys both had one catch for 13 yards and eight yards, respectively.

Defensively, the Cyclones were led by Skye Buckner-Petty, who registered six total tackles, including two sacks.

Phillip Lashley (St. Clair) added four total tackles, two solos and two assists.

“Lashley played strong safety the whole game,” Robertson said.

Kayland Lyles, Devi Greer and Brinker each had three tackles.

Finishing with two tackles were Bo Claggette, Marcus Clay and Mac Harris. Claggette also recovered a fumble.

Robertson said that Stanley and Greer have been nominated to play in the All-American game, which takes place in Kansas City in September.
