The seventh longest winning streak in the nation will continue after another impressive performance from Maryville after a 56-14 defeat of Cameron at Dave Goodwin Field.

With the win over the Dragons, the Spoofhounds have won 35 straight games – including two Class 3 state titles – en route to establishing themselves as the top dog in the Midland Empire Conference.

“I think it’s a credit to them and the commitment to the program,” Maryville coach Matt Webb said. “They are the ones that have that desire. Every week this group has done a good job of finding an identity.

“Being able to focus each week is going to be a critical deal.”

Maryville (5-0, 3-0 MEC) is winning by an average of 43.8 points per game, with a versatile offense led by running back Brody McMahon and quarterback Trey Oglesby.

McMahon – the defending Class 3 offensive player of the year – rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns, while pulling down three passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.

First-year starter Oglesby, a sophomore, finished 3-for-4 in the air with two touchdowns and 62 yards. He also picked up 42 yards on the ground and a pair of touchdowns.

McMahon took a handoff from Oglesby on the opening drive and took it 43-yards to the house for an 8-0 lead.

Despite being winless on the year, the Dragons (0-5, 0-3) attacked the Spoofhound defense with its read option, setting up a 51-yard field goal from Andrew Carr that went through the uprights.
