The Hawkeyes picked up a couple more defensive linemen commits this week (and I hope to get their bios up later), but the story of this week is the continued dominance by the Hawkeye's couple of star commits...Coker, Morris, and Derby. The 3 combined for 10 touchdowns and around 600 yards of offense.
Marcus Coker: DeMatha 24 - Good Counsel 21
DeMatha needed 3 Marcus Coker touchdowns in the 4th quarter to squeak by Good Counsel. Coker saved the day with a 64 yard TD at the end of the game. He also racked up 213 yards on 23 carries. In the 6 games thus far this year, Coker has run the ball 114 time for 1,279 yards and 17 touchdowns (3 TDs each in the last 3 games).
Jim Poggi & Anthony Ferguson: Gilman 12 - Calvert Hall 21
Gilman couldn't get its offense going as Calvert Hall held them 28 points below their season average.
Christian Kirksey & Don Shumpert: Hazelwood East 32 – Ritenour 14
After losing the first 4 games of the season, Hazelwood East has now won 3 in a row. Kirksey had a team high 12 tackles and recovered a fumble. Shumpert also had a good game catching 2 touchdown passes and recording 5 tackles.
Andrew Donnal: Anthony Wayne 0 - Perrysburg 17
Anthony Wayne was blanked by the Yellow Jackets and committed 4 turnovers in their 3rd loss of the year.
Austin Vier: Ballard 14 - Carroll 28
Ballard gave up 21 points in the 2nd quarter and was on the losing side for the first time this year falling to Carrol by 2 scores. Vier was just 14 of 29 for 157 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.
Mike Hardy: Kimberly 28 – Oshkosh West 21
Kimberly scored 21 first half points and held off a late rally from Oshkosh West to preserve the victory. The Papermaker offense ran for 274 yards and passed for another 105.
James Morris: Solon 61 – Camanche 8
Solon and James Morris continue their dominance in Iowa Class 2A. Solon moves to 7-0 on the year...also perfect was Morris at quarterback (for the second tim going 8 for 8 passing. He threw for 101 yards and 2 touchdowns and also rushed for another 92 yards and a TD on just 5 carries. Also this scoring was done in the first half as well! It was 61-0 at halftime before Solon let off the gas.
Matt Hoch: Harlan 49 - Clarke 0
Harlan shuts out its opponent for the second straight week rolling over Clarke by 7 TDs.
Louis Trinca-Pasat: Lane Tech 35 – Dunbar 20
Lane Tech jumped out to a 28 point first quarter lead and never looked back. Lane Tech used its power running game to dominate the game.
Brandon Scherff: Denison 28 – Lincoln Central 14
Denison won its second straight game moving to 3-4 on the year. They took advantage of a poor Lincoln Central team (1-6) to get the 2 score victory.
A.J. Derby: City High 34 – CR Prairie 0
A.J. Derby accounted for 4 touchdowns, 2 passing and 2 on the ground, and the Little Hawk defense blanked Prairie in a 34-0 beatdown. City High moves to 7-0 on the year and Derby continues to tear apart the Mississippi Valley.
Stephane N’goumou Milford 48 – Army Prep 40
Milford Academy won in a shootout against Army Prep. N'goumou's name is nowhere to be found again in the stats. Maybe he's hurt of just not playing. He has only 1 catch on the year at Milford.
B.J. Lowery Hughes Center 14 – Western Hills 7
Hughes Center won just its second game of the year against Western Hills.
De’Andre Johnson Monsignor 20 – North Miami Beach 8
Johnson out again. Monsignor, though, rode its defense to a victory over North Miami Beach.
