CENTER POINT -- Brandon Kinsey rushed for 154 yards and three touchdowns Friday night to lead Center Point-Urbana past Camanche 38-0 in the opening game of Class 2A District 4 football action.

Kinsey carried the ball seven times and broke off a 54-yard TD run in the game. The Pointers (2-1) gained 318 yards on the ground on 28 carries. Quarterback Ryan Wilkin ran the ball four times for 72 yards, one a 61-yard scoring scamper.

Brayton Brandt kicked a 50-yard field goal in the win.

Camanche (1-2) did not report any statistics.

Clinton sophs fall

CLINTON -- Davenport Central built a 21-0 lead in the first half, then held off a Clinton comeback attempt in the second half to beat the River Kings 27-13 in sophomore football Friday at Coan Field.

The Kings (1-2) pulled within 21-13 in the third quarter. Michael Peters recovered a fumble in the end zone for the first score, and Theo Harris caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from freshman Johnny Sullivan for the other score.

“We came out in the second half, got a big turnover in the end zone, recovered our onside kick and got a big pass play for a TD,” Clinton coach Mike Griswold said. “Our defense played outstanding for the rest of the game. We just couldn’t make the plays offensively to win the game. We saw some major improvements this week, and feel like we have another good shot to win this week down at Muscatine (this Friday).”

Another freshman, Walker Chapman, led Clinton with 60 yards rushing on 16 carries.

“We came out of the gates a little slow tonight, and Central really took advantage of our early mistakes,” Griswold said. “We couldn’t get much going offensively in the first half, but we knew there were some things that we could take advantage of.”

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
