Touchdowns were the theme of the week for future Hawkeyes as many of them had multiple TD games on Friday. Coker had 2, Morris 3, Hoch 3, Vier 3...that is definitely promising.
Marcus Coker: DeMatha 45 - Friendship Collegiate 12
DeMatha started off the game scoring 24 unanswered points rolling over Friendship Collegiate. Marcus Coker followed up his huge week against Gilman with a modest 70 yards on 12 carries and scored 2 touchdowns.
Jim Poggi & Anthony Ferguson: Gilman 37 - Good Counsel 49
For the second week in a row the defense was not good enough as Gilman fell to Good Counsel. This highlight video shows Ferguson (#75) getting some good penetration on a few plays. I didn't see Poggi playing at all (#7 in cause I missed him). I've read rumors that he broke his shoulder, but then I also saw he was a game time decision. So it's likely not extremely severe, but I don't think he played.
Christian Kirksey & Don Shumpert - Hazelwood East 42 - Hazelwood West 61
The defending champs struggled yet again as Hazelwood East fell to rival West in a shoot out.
Andrew Donnal: Anthony Wayne 35 - Southview 42
Anthony Wayne got down early and was a comeback was ultimately thwarted by a late interception and Southview hung on to win by a touchdown.
Austin Vier: Ballard 42 - Saydel 0
Ballard racked up 437 yards of offense and only gave up 127 in a route over Saydel. Austin Vier had his best game of the season going 10 of 12 for 166 yards and 3 TD and 1 Int. (Maybe quarterback isn't out of the question after all...)
Mike Hardy: Kimberly 36 - Fond du Lac 23
Kimberly rallied against Fond du Lac scoring 22 fourth quarter points on the way to victory.
James Morris: Solon 40 - Tipton 0
Solon rolls over yet another opponent, beating Tipton by 40. Though Morris will be playing linebacker at Iowa, he been having an amazing time at running back in high school. On Friday he ran for 213 yards on 14 carries and had 3 touchdowns.
Matt Hoch: Harlan 42 - ADM 14
Harlan had no problems on Friday against ADM winning by 4 touchdowns. Hoch did his part rushing for 71 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Louis Trinca-Pasat: Lane Tech 21 - Curie 28
Lane Tech fell by only a touchdown against Curie.
Brandon Scherff: Denison 14 - LeMars 27
Though Denison went up 14-0 early, they were unable to stop a LeMars rally and fell 27-14.
