GOOSE LAKE — Northeast overcame four turnovers to record a 33-20 win over Edgewood-Colesburg on homecoming Friday night.

The Rebels rebounded from last week’s loss to improve to 3-2 (2-1 Iowa Class 1A District 4).

“It wasn’t our best performance,” Northeast coach Jeremy Mosier said. “We were pretty sloppy, but a win’s a win, and it was good to get back on track after what happened last week.”

Spencer Lueders caught three passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns. Tanner Loots rushed 15 times for 156 yards and a touchdown, while quarterback Jed Rogis completed 6 of 16 passes for 126 yards and three touchdowns.

Rogis and Justin Sparks each had two interceptions, while Shawn Swanton had 13 tackles to lead the defense.

Northeast led 20-6 at halftime, but the Vikings scored on their first possession of the second half to make it 20-12.

But Rogis found Lueders for a 5-yard touchdown late in the third quarter, and Rogis connected with CJ Herrington for a 10-yard strike midway through the fourth to give Northeast a comfortable cushion.

“The kids didn’t panic, which is good,” Mosier said. “They kept at it, and we were able to pull away.”

Preston posts shutout

SPRINGVILLE — Preston blanked Springville 43-0 on Friday and will head into a homecoming showdown with ranked and unbeaten Maynard West Central undefeated, as well.

Quarterback Jason Feddersen scored on a pair of 1-yard runs and threw a touchdown pass, and Lucas Assenmacher broke off a pair of touchdown runs to lead the Trojans (5-0, 3-0 in District 4), who are ranked 10th in Iowa eight-player football.

“We’re 5-0 and where we want to be going into our homecoming game against West Central, another 5-0, ranked team,” Preston coach Kevin Behr said. “I was real happy with the way the defense played. Shutouts in eight-man are rare.”

Kyle Feller led Preston’s offense with 106 yards rushing, but Assenmacher added 96, including touchdown runs of 62 and 13 yards.

“I don’t want to say it was a surprise because we knew what he was capable of, but it’s just another great option to have a third guy who can run the ball (along with Feller and Austin Hughes),” Behr said.
