KAHOKA, Mo (WGEM) -- Heading into Saturday's quarterfinal round of the MSHSAA football playoffs, very few teams are left with the dream of playing at the Edward Jones Dome still alive.

The undefeated Clark County Indians are still on track to reach their ultimate goal, following a 22-14 win over Palmyra on Monday night.

Now, the Indians have shifted all of their attention to Saturday's showdown at one loss Blair Oaks, who should provide the biggest test to date for Quentin Hamner and his squad.

"We have to come ready to play," said head coach Quentin Hamner.

"I think that if we can do that and put all three phases of the game together we should be ok. We have to be able to match their punches, and play four quarters."

Hamners team is confident, but they know it won't be easy.

"You have to worry about playing hard the whole time, not give up on anything," senior running back Lincoln Jones expressed.

"They might score the first touchdown but we've got to come right back at em' as much as we can, and just stay calm."

"Blair Oaks is a good team and they're going to come out and play hard," senior quarterback Austin Egley added.

"So we're going to have to be ready to come out and play hard too."

This game will be the first road trip of the playoff schedule for Clark County, but that could be good news for it's high tempo offense.

Playing on the fast track turf of the Falcon Athletic Complex could provide a little extra juice.

"I think it plays both ways," said Quentin Hamner.

"They get to play on it each and every week, and for us, with what we do it's a little bit harder for teams that don't see it week-in and week-out, it's hard to prepare for."

"It's going to be a change up after having three home games in a row, but I think we play better on the road," added Austin Egley.

"I think it's going to get us even more fired up we'll be ready to rock and roll."

Kickoff in Jefferson City is set for Saturday at 1:30 PM.
