Falcons take advantage of Raptor turnovers in 40-16 win

OABCIG capitalized on five Ridge View turnovers by converting three of the turnovers into touchdowns in a 40-16 non-district football win in Ida Grove Friday. The season opening contest also marked a continuation of the Reynolds Trophy series, which is now tied at 13 wins apiece.

Falcon coach Larry Allen pointed to the turnovers as a major factor in the game, especially in the early going. “If someone is going to give you turnovers, you have to capitalize on them, and we did that. When you get the ball back on two of their first three plays of the game, it builds momentum and excitement, and we needed that. It is a big key to get off to a good start.”
