Iowa Football Roundup: Bittersweet Senior Night for Rebels

From Staff reports

 

GOOSE LAKE — Northeast put together a solid passing performance, led by sophomore quarterback Will Hasken who went 21-of-38 with 250 yards. He hit Nick Wall and Mitch Moehr for touchdowns, but that’s where the highlights stopped for the Rebels.

Northeast fell 43-13 to Monticello on Senior Night on Friday, dropping the team to 1-8 on the season. As well as Hasken performed through the air, he also threw four interceptions. He was also countered by Panthers running back David Gray, who posted four touchdowns on 163 yards on the ground.

Moehr and Tevin Stoecker each had seven receptions, with Moehr racking up a team-leading 90 yards.

Sabers fall in finale

MARION — After battling close through most of the first quarter, Marion broke through first with a touchdown at the 3:51 mark in the first quarter. The 7-0 lead over Central DeWitt was all the Indians needed. Marion blanked the Sabers 10-0, dropping DeWitt to 4-5 on the season.

The Sabers held Marion scoreless for the rest of the half and through most of the third quarter. Late in that frame, Marion returned an interception to DeWitt’s 10-yard line, leading to the Indians’ field goal. Aside from forfeits, in which DeWitt was credited with zero points against Maquoketa and West Delaware, the loss to Marion was the only time DeWitt was shut out this season.

Despite the loss, DeWitt made it into the playoffs and will travel to Decorah next week in the Class 3A state playoffs.

Cards end with win

TIFFIN — Cohl Kueter scored three first-half touchdowns, and the Cardinals were off and running, taking down Clear Creek-Amana 42-28 and ending the regular season at 6-3.

Maquoketa doubled its 28-14 halftime lead, making it 42-14 early in the fourth quarter on a 2-yard punch-in by Jake Kloft. Two late gimmes for Clear Creek-Amana were to no avail and the Clippers fell to 4-5.

  • 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.
