Prep football roundup

Newman beats Morrison; River Hawks survive scare; Blazers pound Camanche

(Continued)

STERLING, Ill. — Beckman bops Indians

CAMANCHE — Dyersville Beckman piled up 291 yards on the ground while holding Camanche to 34 total yards Friday in a 55-6 victory in Class 2A District 4.

Tyler Hirsch carred 12 times for 120 yards to lead the Blazers (2-2, 1-1 district).

Camanche (1-3, 0-2) struggled all night on offense, gaining 33 yards on 30 rushes and completing just one pass for 1 yard. The bright spot was special teams, where Derek Harksen averaged 49 yards on five punts.

Ryan Langston led Camanche's running attack with 34 yards on eight carries, while Easton McDaniel added 27 on 14 carries.

Cardinals roll at home

MAQUOKETA — Maquoketa got its offense rolling early Friday, scoring four times in the first quarter on the way to a 59-6 win against Anamosa in Class 3A District 6 football.

Jacob Kloft scored four touchdowns as the win improved the Cardinals' record to 3-1, 2-0 in district action, including a forfeit win last week against Central DeWitt.

Maquoketa's defense sent Anamosa (0-4, 0-2) three-and-out on its first three possessions and converted on the offensive end once it took over each possession.

Two big runs and a 34-yard pass from Trent Bollman to Alex Gilmore set up the Cardinals at the 2-yard line, and Kloft scored on the next play with 9 minutes, 47 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Maquoketa took over at midfield on an Anamosa punt moments later. A 30-yard run by Bollman set up a 33-yard field goal by Cory Wirth.

Once again, Anamosa was forced to punt on its next possession, and Maquoketa's Ben Strathman returned it 35 yards to the Anamosa 26-yard line. A 20-yard run by Cohl Kueter gave the Cardinals a first-and-goal, and two plays later, Kloft scored on a 4-yard run for a 17-0 lead with 4:18 left in the quarter.

Anamosa recorded a first down on its next possession but again was forced to punt. The Cardinals struck again when Cohl Kueter went 88 yard with a screen pass from Bollman as the lead increased to 24-0.

The Cardinals upped their lead to 45-0 at the half and played the second half with a continuous clock.
