A week after surviving to advance in the Missouri state playoffs, No. 23 Webb City (Mo.) had a surprisingly easy time with West Plains on Friday night.

The five-time defending state champion Cardinals won 45-12 to win the Class 4 District 5 championship and run their winning streak to 40 games.

A week ago, Webb City beat Carl Junction 14-7 in what turned into a defensive struggle among the offenses trying to fight through windy and rainy conditions.

No such problem this week. Webb City (12-0) was up 42-0 at halftime and then added a field goal in the third quarter before West Plains (10-2) scored twice late in the game.

According to stats from the Joplin Globe, Webb City had 381 yards of offense in the first half — 207 passing and 174 rushing.

QB Tyson Roderique, injured in last week’s win, was back in action Friday. He threw three touchdown passes in the first half of 16, 53 and 34 yards and also ran for a 10-yard touchdown.

Webb City advances to face Harrisonville next week in the state quarterfinals, the school’s eighth consecutive state quarterfinal appearance.
