Prep football: River Hawks drop 3rd straight game

Herald Staff Report

 

MILES — After two grueling road losses against two top-five teams in the state, Easton Valley caught what was perceived to be a break at home against Lansing Kee High during Friday’s eight-man matchup. At the end of four quarters, though, the Kee Hawks walked away winners.

The River Hawks led 38-32 in the fourth quarter before Kee stormed back with 20 unanswered points. Easton Valley managed a touchdown at the end, but it made no difference in the outcome, as it fell to 3-3 on the season behind a 52-44 loss.

Andrew Driscoll ate up 246 of the River Hawks’ 349 yards on the ground on 42 carries, while Craiton Andresen was 4-for-6 through the air for 41 yards and two touchdowns.

They were countered by Kee’s Jameson and Dylon Peterson, who accounted for most of the Kee-Hawks’ 366 yards of offense.

Andresen opened the scoring, finding Blake Bormann on a 5-yard touchdown pass with 9:01 to go in the first. Dylon Peterson then hooked up with Jameson Peterson on a 30-yard score, converting the two-pointer to make it 8-7. After Andresen re-gave Easton Valley the lead on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Chase Zaruba, Dylon Peterson answered again, this time on a 79-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff.

While the River Hawks went for point-after attempts, the Kee-Hawks opted for two-point conversions, and converted five of their seven attempts. Those extra 10 points wound up being the difference maker between an Easton Valley win and a third consecutive loss.

The River Hawks go back on the road next Friday, when they travel to Central City.

 

Slow start, strong finishfor Cardinals

VAN HORNE — Maquoketa may have scored on its opening offensive drive, taking less than a minute off the clock, but otherwise the first quarter was a near disaster. On the next three drives against Benton Community, the Cardinals fumbled twice to end drives and forced an interception, giving the Bobcats ideal field position early in the game.
