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.

  • 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.
