Can you believe the regular season is done already for Iowa high school football? Next week I'll be talking about playoff games!
Marcus Coker: DeMatha 35 - O'Connell 7
After pulling a groin muscle last week, Coker sat out the past weekend. DeMatha had no problems without Coker scoring 35 first half points on the way to victory. DeMatha is 8-0 on the season with 2 week remaining.
Jim Poggi & Anthony Ferguson: Bye Week (next game October 30)
Christian Kirksey & Don Shumpert: Hazelwood East 34 – McCluer 0
Hazelwood East extends its win streak to 5 games in a shutout win against McCluer. Kirksey continues to dominate on defense with 19 tackles (that seems ridiculous, but it says 9 tackles with 10 assists) and a sack. Shumpert had 6 catches for 36 yards and added 5 tackles.
Andrew Donnal: Anthony Wayne 62 - Rossford 0
The rushing game was working again as Anthony Wayne racked up 378 on the ground. I'm going to attribute this to great blocking.
Austin Vier: Ballard 16 - Boone 7
Ballard finishes the regular season 8-1 and is ready for the playoffs. The play tomorrow night against Webster City in sub-state. Vier was just 3 of 10 for 19 yards.
Mike Hardy: Kimberly 20 – Oshkosh North 8
Kimberly won again and is now thinking playoffs. They kick off tonight against De Pere in round 1. The Papermakers will unfortunately be without their QB though.
James Morris: Solon 70 – West Liberty 6
Solon finished the regular season the same way they've been playing all season: dominating. Solon scored a ridiculous 42 points in the first quarter. Morris had just 4 carries, but ran for 128 yards. That's a 32 yards per carry average! He also had 2 touchdown runs of 20 yards and 80 yards. Solon plays Mediapolis tomorrow night in sub-state.
Matt Hoch: Harlan 28 - Lewis Central 0
Harlan has a big 4th quarter and finished 9-0 with a victory over Lewis Central. The only mention of Hoch is that he fumbled on the 1 yardline fighting for a TD. Harlan plays MOC-Floyd Valley tomorrow night in the first round of the playoffs.
Louis Trinca-Pasat: Lane Tech 0 – Hubbard 33
Lane Tech goes down in the first round of the playoffs getting blanked for the second straight week. So that is it for Trinca-Pasat as a high schooler, next time he sees the field he will be wearing black and gold.
Brandon Scherff: Denison 12 – Spencer 7
Denison wins its 4th game in a row and qualifies for the playoffs. (I just found the score for this one). The Monarchs will play in sub-state tomorrow against Glenwood.
A.J. Derby: City High 54 – CR Jefferson 6
City High returned 2 punts for TDs and racked up 327 yards of total offense while only giving up 152. City High finishes the regular season 9-0 for the third time in a row with the win over Jefferson. Derby was 4-7 for 63 yards and ran it twice for 8 yards and a touchdown. City will face off against cross-town rivals Iowa City West tomorrow night in the playoffs. The last time they paid against West earlier this season, City High won 49-10.
Stephane N’goumou Milford 30 - Robert Morris 18
Milford improved to 8-2 on the year behind a strong passing attack. No mention of N'goumou...I don't htink he's playing much.
B.J. Lowery Hughes Center 21 – Woodword 8
I was only able to find the final score.
Carl Davis Stevenson 49 - Warren Mott 21
Stevenson wrapped up a perfect regular season with a victory over Warren Mott. The Titans had a big first half scoring 42 points.
Donovan Johnson Martin 58 - Mansfield 7
Martin dominated in a big victory over Mansfield. The defense gave up 300 yards, but only 7 points.
Austin Gray Fitzgerald 36 - South Lake 20
Gray is out with a torn ACL, but Fitzgerald finds a way to win.
De’Andre Johnson Monsignor 46 – Somerset Academy 0
Johnson out again, also an ACL injury. Monsignor continues to dominate.
