CPU takesdown Rebels

GOOSE LAKE — A manageable 14-0 deficit for Northeast quickly got out of hand, and Center Point-Urbana took a 34-8 lead to the half, and a 48-8 victory to its record.

The Rebels, after notching their first win of the season last week, fell to 1-5 on the year. They travel to Dyersville Beckman next week.

MV doublesup Bellevue

BELLEVUE — Through three quarters, Maquoketa Valley and Bellevue battled close. Neither team led by more than a touchdown entering the fourth quarter and there were three lead changes.

Late scores in the third and fourth quarters for Maquoketa Valley wound up making the difference. The Wildcats punched it in on two sustained drives, and held Bellevue to 179 total yards off offense, facilitating a 26-13 win.

MV was first to score, closing the first quarter with a 10-yard touchdown run by Ben Dzaboff. Comets quarterback Keenan Ploessl responded in the second quarter with a 4-yard run, giving Bellevue the 7-6 lead. Another Wildcats touchdown in the second was answered by another Ploessl score, making it 13-12 Comets.

The Wildcats also dominated time of possession, holding the ball for 36 minutes without punting or turning the ball over. Bellevue, meanwhile, managed a lost fumble, an interception and two punts.

MV remained undefeated, while the 2-4 Comets travel to Alburnett next week.

  • 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.
