Everything came up Dutchmen in Week 6.
Owensville (4-2, 2-1) rolled to a 40-2 home win over Pacific (0-6, 0-4) in Four Rivers Conference play.
The Dutchmen led 21-0 after the first quarter of play and 33-0 at the half.
“(It was a) very disappointing effort across the board,” Pacific Head Coach Clint Anderson said. “Owensville came out firing, got us down early and we never responded. Owensville was better in all aspects of the game.”
Pacific gained the only points of the third quarter on a defensive safety.
Pacific will travel to Festus this coming Friday.
The Tigers have won the last nine meetings between the two teams, dating back to 2010.

Robinson has gained 564 yards and nine touchdowns on 94 carries.
Rystrom has carried the ball 37 times for 382 yards and six touchdowns.
