GOOSE LAKE — Northeast put together a solid passing performance, led by sophomore quarterback Will Hasken who went 21-of-38 with 250 yards. He hit Nick Wall and Mitch Moehr for touchdowns, but that’s where the highlights stopped for the Rebels.
Northeast fell 43-13 to Monticello on Senior Night on Friday, dropping the team to 1-8 on the season. As well as Hasken performed through the air, he also threw four interceptions. He was also countered by Panthers running back David Gray, who posted four touchdowns on 163 yards on the ground.
Moehr and Tevin Stoecker each had seven receptions, with Moehr racking up a team-leading 90 yards.
Sabers fall in finale
MARION — After battling close through most of the first quarter, Marion broke through first with a touchdown at the 3:51 mark in the first quarter. The 7-0 lead over Central DeWitt was all the Indians needed. Marion blanked the Sabers 10-0, dropping DeWitt to 4-5 on the season.
The Sabers held Marion scoreless for the rest of the half and through most of the third quarter. Late in that frame, Marion returned an interception to DeWitt’s 10-yard line, leading to the Indians’ field goal. Aside from forfeits, in which DeWitt was credited with zero points against Maquoketa and West Delaware, the loss to Marion was the only time DeWitt was shut out this season.
Despite the loss, DeWitt made it into the playoffs and will travel to Decorah next week in the Class 3A state playoffs.
Cards end with win
TIFFIN — Cohl Kueter scored three first-half touchdowns, and the Cardinals were off and running, taking down Clear Creek-Amana 42-28 and ending the regular season at 6-3.
Maquoketa doubled its 28-14 halftime lead, making it 42-14 early in the fourth quarter on a 2-yard punch-in by Jake Kloft. Two late gimmes for Clear Creek-Amana were to no avail and the Clippers fell to 4-5.
Kueter started the scoring with a 12-yard touchdown run with 5:44 left in the first quarter. He then punctuated a drive early in the first on a 2-yard run, and after the Clippers answered with their first score, he ended another Maquoketa drive on a 1-yard run to the end zone.
Cardinals quarterback Trent Bollman added two scores in the second and fourth quarters.
Bellevue takesdown Durant, 35-21
BELLEVUE — Bellevue improved to 3-6 on the year with a Senior Night, 35-21 win over Durant-Bennett on Friday. Four first-half touchdowns were all the Comets needed, with the bulk of them coming from Keenan Ploessl and Tyler Banowetz.
Banowetz started the scoring in the first quarter with a pick-six, making it 7-0. Later, Ploessl and Banowetz connected on a 26-yard touchdown pass, the first of two scoring plays the two hooked up on.
Ploessl finished the game 10-for-20 with 183 yards and two scores through the air; 113 of those yards went to Banowetz. Ploessl also added a 17-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, putting the game out of reach at 35-14.
