Regina blanks St. Edmond 35-0

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Iowa City Regina now stands alone among Iowa high school football programs. Drew Cook completed all 13 of his passes and Regina ran its winning streak to a state-record 56 games in beating Fort Dodge St. Edmond 35-0 Friday to capture the Class 1A state championship.

It was the fourth consecutive title for the top-ranked Regals, who had been tied with the great Waterloo East teams of the late 1960s with 55 straight wins. East compiled its streak from 1965-71, before the state had postseason playoffs.

St. Edmond (13-1) brought the stingiest defense in 1A, giving up only 7 points a game. But the fourth-ranked Gaels were no match for the highly skilled Regals (14-0), who joined Solon as the only schools with four straight championships.

Iowa State seeks 1st Big 12 win against Kansas

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Losing seasons and a chilly forecast have dampened the excitement for Saturday night’s game between Kansas and host Iowa State. For the Jayhawks and Cyclones, there’s actually quite a bit to play for.

It would be huge for the rebuilding efforts of coach Charlie Weis if the Jayhawks (3-7, 1-6 Big 12) can string together back-to-back Big 12 wins for the first time since 2008. It will be senior day for Iowa State (1-9, 0-7), and one last chance for a banged-up team to show that its home fans that they weren’t as bad as their record indicates.

The Cyclones have won three straight in the series, but they’re also on a seven-game losing skid.

WR Kyle Williams goes on Chiefs’ IR

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Wide receiver Kyle Williams has been placed on injured reserve by Kansas City with a torn knee ligament.  Williams tweeted about the injury Friday morning just after the team announced it signed receiver Chad Hall to the 53-man roster and placed Williams on IR. Williams played in 39 games with nine starts in more than three NFL seasons with San Francisco and Kansas City. His only appearance for the Chiefs came in last week’s loss to Denver.

It is the second time he has been sidelined with a torn ACL. Hall has played in 22 games in just over two NFL seasons with the Chiefs and Eagles. He was claimed off waivers on Sept. 1 from the 49ers and played in seven games with Kansas City, making one catch for 9 yards. Hall also returns kicks.

West Lyon routs BGM 49-7 for Class A title

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) – Brandon Snyder scored two touchdowns and passed for another and No. 1 Inwood West Lyon routed No. 2 Brooklyn BGM 49-7 Thursday to win the Class A state championship.  West Lyon (14-0) dominated on the ground, outrushing BGM 329-48. Snyder ran for 181 yards on just seven carries and completed 4 of 5 passes for another 110 yards.

BGM (13-1), which had been averaging a class-best 53.9 points, was held without an offensive touchdown. The Bears played most of the game without star running back Jack Kline, who came in with 1,811 yards rushing and 49 TDs. After returning an interception 52 yards for the game’s first touchdown, Kline sprained an ankle making a tackle and did not return.

Chiefs’ suspect offensive line also banged up

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Donald Stephenson and Geoff Schwartz might as well consider themselves quasi starters the way the two Chiefs offensive linemen have been pressed into service this season. In an ideal world, Stephenson is supposed to be the backup offensive tackle, Schwartz the reserve offensive guard. But injuries to just about everybody on the Chiefs’ already suspect offensive has resulted in each of them playing in every game this season. They could be pressed into service Sunday against San Diego, too.

Right tackle Eric Fisher has been dealing with a shoulder injury and right guard Jon Asamoah some calf spasms and a shoulder injury of his own. If either of them can’t start, it will be up to Stephenson and Schwartz to fill the void.

Bishop Heelan routs Washington 47-14

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Philip Jacobson caught four of Trent Solsma’s six touchdown passes and Sioux City Bishop Heelan overwhelmed Washington 47-14 Thursday night to win the Class 3A state championship. Jacobson also ran for a touchdown and intercepted two passes, part of a record-setting performance that gave the top-ranked Crusaders their fourth state title.

Solsma hit on 23 of 30 passes for 453 yards with no interceptions, setting a 3A championship game record for completions and all-class marks for yards and touchdowns. Solsma threw for 301 yards in helping Heelan build a 26-7 halftime lead, forcing No. 6 Washington’s ground-oriented offense out of its comfort zone and ending an 11-game winning streak for the Demons (13-1).
