Creston/O-M's Brance Baker (83) eludes Bondurant-Farrar defender Alex Hall (22) on a 26-yard punt return Friday night. Baker had two touchdown catches while making five receptions for 81 yards in the Panthers' 31-22 loss.

Bondurant-Farrar's ball-control attack rushed for 334 yards on 56 carries in defeating Creston/O-M 31-22 Friday night at Panther Field.

When Panther quarterback Eli Loudon scored on fourth-and-goal with 7:37 to play and also ran in the two-point conversion, the Bluejays' lead was cut to 24-22. But B-F responded with Porter Smith's 36-yard scoring jaunt with 3:05 left.

The Panthers' last lead of the game was 14-10 early in the third quarter on the second scoring pass connection from Loudon to Brance Baker.

Kaeden Lozano carried 28 times for 187 yards and two touchdowns for the Bluejays and Smith contributed 120 yards on 28 carries and two touchdowns as Bondurant-Farrar improved to 3-1 for the season.

Creston/O-M, falling to 2-2, was hampered by turnovers for the second consecutive week with two lost fumbles and two interceptions. Loudon was under pressure much of the night, with 28 yards in losses contributing to the Panthers' net rushing of only 45 yards for the night.

Loudon finished 19 of 32 passing for 239 yards and a pair of touchdowns to receiver Brance Baker, who had five catches for 81 yards. Luke Latham had seven receptions for 97 yards and Cael Kralik caught four passes for 43 yards.

Bondurant-Farrar relied most on its rushing attack, ending 5 of 7 passing for 71 yards.

Rylan Luther and Garon Wurster each had 10 tackles for the Panther defense and Kaden Bolton had nine.

Creston/O-M opens Class 3A District 9 play next week at state-ranked Lewis Central.

Mount Ayr 49, Clarke 7

OSCEOLA – Class 1A No. 9 Mount Ayr rolled over Clarke for its fourth straight win Friday night, winning 49-7.

The Raiders' first drive of the game put points on the board, storming down the field for a five-play drive that ended with a 7-yard catch from Dawson Frost from Isaac Grose.

The score, less than four minutes into the game, was the only lead change of the game as Mount Ayr scored 42 consecutive points after the opening drive score.

Turnovers off of fumbles and an interception were deciding factors in the game, said Clarke head coach Duane Matthess.

The Indians fumbled the ball five times resulting in both a change of possession and a loss of yardage.

Kolben Kommhaus ran the ball in on a sweep from 7 yards out for the score, making it 14-0 with 3:56 left in the second quarter. The score proved to be the decider as Clarke was unable to break through a stonewall Raiders defense until 30 seconds remained in the game (Brian Avalos carry for 20 yards).

Dawson Swank, Kolben Klommhaus, Isaac Grose and Jace Groce each had rushing touchdowns in the win.
