CAPE GIRARDEAU -- With a host of big plays from a rejuvenated Cape Central offense, the visiting New Madrid County Central Eagles were torched 41-6 at Houck Stadium on Friday night to open their 2010 season.

The Eagles allowed 396 total yards on defense giving little opposition to the Tiger offense. Cape Central's rushing attack was spearheaded by James Poindexter who gained 151 yards on six carries. Cape Central quarterback Christian Cavaness threw three touchdowns and gained 118 yards through the air on just four completions.

NMCC (0-1) quickly found themselves in a hole after the first quarter, 14-0. G'Darius Stevenson scored the Eagles' first and only touchdown in the second quarter brushing aside a gang of Cape Central tacklers in the process. Stevenson's 97-yard touchdown scamper accounted for the majority of his 117 yards rushing as he to was slowed by Cape Central's first winning effort in their last 14 games.

The Tigers went on to score 27 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to seal their home opener.
