CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Ryan Boyle scored four touchdowns and threw for two TDs as West Des Moines Dowling Catholic overpowered Cedar Rapids Xavier 44-13 Friday night to win the Class 4A state championship. Boyle and the Maroons (14-0) sliced up a Xavier defense that posted eight shutouts this season and had given up only seven points in four previous playoff games.

Boyle completed his first nine passes and finished 12 of 14 for 283 yards with one interception and kept the Saints (12-2) off balance by running 21 times for another 82 yards.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Jarrod Uthoff scored a season-high 19 points as Iowa beat Penn 86-55 on Friday night. Devyn Marble added 13 points and a career-high five steals for the Hawkeyes (5-0). Darien Nelson-Henry scored 13 points to lead Penn (1-3).

Iowa forced a season-high 25 turnovers — 17 in the first half. The Hawkeyes finished with 14 steals and 30 points off turnovers. Uthoff shot 6 of 7 from the field and made all six of his free throws. Uthoff’s fully extended dunk over a Penn defender drew the biggest reaction from Hawkeye fans. Iowa made 28 of 40 free throws. Penn only attempted 16 foul shots.

Nine Hawkeyes scored at least five points. Mike Gesell scored 10 points. Gabe Olaseni added eight points, six rebounds and three blocks. Iowa coach Fran McCaffery graduated from Penn. He played three seasons with the Quakers from 1979-82.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — Deon Mitchell scored 23 points, one of three Northern Iowa players to break the 20-point mark, as the Panthers beat Loyola Marymount 90-81 in the opener of the Paradise Jam on Friday. Matt Bohannon had 22 points, Seth Tuttle added 21 and grabbed 11 rebounds for Northern Iowa (2-2). The Panthers shot 51 percent, including 12 of 21 from 3-point range.

Anthony Ireland finished with 24 points, on just 7-of-20 shooting, but made 9 of his 10 free throws for LMU (4-1). The Lions also got 22 from Evan Payne and Gabe Levin chipped in with 10 points and 14 boards.

Northern Iowa went to the line 39 times, making 28 of them. The Lions, on the other hand, made 15 of their 21 attempts. The Panthers led 53-36 at the half, after going 10 of 14 from 3-point range.

Iowa gets another crack at Michigan

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The lowest point of Iowa’s disastrous 2012 season came at Michigan, where the Wolverines handed the Hawkeyes their biggest loss in five years. Iowa gets another shot at Michigan on Saturday and a chance to show the rest of the Big Ten how far it’s come. The Hawkeyes (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) can clinch at least a .500 record in league play and improve their bowl status if they beat Michigan for a third straight time in Iowa City.

Michigan (7-3, 3-3) needed a late field goal and three overtimes to beat Northwestern 27-19 last week. The Wolverines rank next to last in the Big Ten in rushing offense and just seventh in scoring defense. Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner had six touchdowns in a 42-17 blowout of Iowa last season.

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

Sports

November 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

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.
