Prep football: Beckman rolls over Northeast

DYERSVILLE — Coming off back-to-back 42-7 victories, Dyersville Beckman equaled that combined scoring output Friday as it ran its winning streak to five games with an 84-20 win against Northeast in Class 2A District 4 high school football.

The Trailblazers (6-2, 4-1 district) had three long returns for touchdowns. Grant Hammann brought a kickoff back 88 yards for a score, while Mitch Steger matched that distance with an interception return and Tyler Hirsch brought another interception back 37 yards.

Hammann had a big night on offense, too. He rushed for 100 yards on seven carries, three of them for touchdowns, and completed 4 of 5 passes for 104 yards. Hirsch added 96 yards on the ground for Beckman, which ran for 526 yards on 42 attempts.

The Blazers have scored more than 40 points in five of their six wins and have been held below 29 points in just one of their eight games.

No information from Northeast (1-7, 1-4) was submitted.

Camanche falls

MOUNT VERNON — Mitch McElroy threw a pair of touchdown passes Friday in Camanche’s 53-12 loss to Mount Vernon in Class 2A District 4 football.

McElroy connected with Derek Harksen for a 72-yard touchdown toss and combined with Brady Beal for a 25-yard scoring play for the Indians (1-7), who wound up winless in six district games.

McElroy completed 10 of 25 passes for 190 yards but threw five interceptions. Mount Vernon limited the Indians to minus-18 yards rushing.

Mike Morris was the tackles leader for Camanche with seven solos and two assists. Layne Dean added six, all solos.

CHS sophomores fall

RIVERDALE — Coach Mike Griswold was pleased with the performance despite Clinton’s 28-14 loss to Pleasant Valley in sophomore football Friday.

“Tonight was probably our best game of the year,” Griswold said. “We came out ready to play and took advantage of some early PV turnovers. Our defense was very good all night, just giving up a few big plays that would end up putting us in too deep of a hole to dig ourselves out 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.
