CENTER POINT -- Brandon Kinsey rushed for 154 yards and three touchdowns Friday night to lead Center Point-Urbana past Camanche 38-0 in the opening game of Class 2A District 4 football action.

Kinsey carried the ball seven times and broke off a 54-yard TD run in the game. The Pointers (2-1) gained 318 yards on the ground on 28 carries. Quarterback Ryan Wilkin ran the ball four times for 72 yards, one a 61-yard scoring scamper.

Brayton Brandt kicked a 50-yard field goal in the win.

Camanche (1-2) did not report any statistics.

Clinton sophs fall

CLINTON -- Davenport Central built a 21-0 lead in the first half, then held off a Clinton comeback attempt in the second half to beat the River Kings 27-13 in sophomore football Friday at Coan Field.

The Kings (1-2) pulled within 21-13 in the third quarter. Michael Peters recovered a fumble in the end zone for the first score, and Theo Harris caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from freshman Johnny Sullivan for the other score.

“We came out in the second half, got a big turnover in the end zone, recovered our onside kick and got a big pass play for a TD,” Clinton coach Mike Griswold said. “Our defense played outstanding for the rest of the game. We just couldn’t make the plays offensively to win the game. We saw some major improvements this week, and feel like we have another good shot to win this week down at Muscatine (this Friday).”

Another freshman, Walker Chapman, led Clinton with 60 yards rushing on 16 carries.

“We came out of the gates a little slow tonight, and Central really took advantage of our early mistakes,” Griswold said. “We couldn’t get much going offensively in the first half, but we knew there were some things that we could take advantage of.”

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!

    It happened two hours after John Hood finished his run. Like many, he thought the loud boom was just the sound of cannons going off, something that shook the ground. It was odd, but Hood — a 1989 Clinton High School graduate — tried to make it logical, associating the noise with another good happening at the Boston Marathon.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).

  • Eyewitness testimony no longer a gold standard

    The American legal system offers few moments as dramatic as an eyewitness to a crime pointing his finger across a crowded courtroom at a defendant.

    The problem is that decades of studies show eyewitness testimony is only right about half the time — a reality that has prompted a small vanguard of police chiefs, courts and lawmakers to toughen laws governing the handling of eyewitnesses and their accounts of crimes.
