Hogan rallies Dons to title

CEDAR FALLS — Do-it-all quarterback Jake Hogan scored on a 1-yard run with 1 minute, 13 seconds left Thursday to give Gilbertville Don Bosco an 18-14 victory over Exira-EHK and the eight-player state championship in Iowa high school football at the UNI-Dome.

Hogan drove the Dons (14-0) 79 yards in 12 plays for the winning score after their potent offense had been stymied for much of the game. Then he intercepted a pass with 9 seconds left to preserve the first state football title for a school long known for its wrestling program.

Exira-EHK (12-1) took a 14-0 halftime lead on long scoring runs by Trey Sander and Drew Peppers. The Spartans shut down Hogan in the first two quarters while holding the Dons to 80 yards and two first downs.

But Hogan got his team rolling in the second half and finished with 111 yards on 32 carries while adding 172 yards on 8 of 21 passing.

  • Let the (real) games begin: It's NBA playoff time

    Finally, the NBA playoffs are set.

    It took the entire season to fill out those brackets.

    Overtime thrillers in Memphis and Charlotte, a go-ahead dunk in Oklahoma City to win a game and cap another scoring title for Kevin Durant, plus some good old-fashioned disinterest by Brooklyn ... all that, and more, on the final night of the season was needed before the eight conference-quarterfinal matchups in this season's NBA playoffs could be decided.
