Cedar Valley Christian enjoys first victory

Cedar Valley Christian took a bold step four years ago when it started a high school football program from scratch with a bunch of inexperienced kids and no field.

The Huskies were determined to have a team at their small school on the southeast side of Cedar Rapids and all their hard work paid off Friday night.

Cedar Valley trimmed Harmony, 30-20, for the first victory in school history in an 8-Player game in Farmington, snapping a streak of 22 lopsided defeats.

"That's great," Coach Ed Betsworth said Saturday morning. "I'm glad it happened, finally."

The Huskies finished with an 0-4 record in 2011, went 0-9 in 2012 and 0-9 again last year. Some of those scores were pretty ugly as the Huskies learned how to play the game, but they got a nice reward Friday.

Warriors outlast pesky J-Hawks, 43-26

Almost 47 years to the day, Jefferson All-Americans John Blessman and Doug Lane returned together to the Kingston Stadium sidelines Friday night for a football game with Washington.

Blessman came from the Amanas, Lane from California.

The last time they were there the Warriors beat their heralded undefeated team to break the J-Hawks' 37-game win streak.

The two old gladiators gave a pep talk to this year’s rejuvinated Jefferson squad and came close to getting revenge for that bitter loss nearly a half-century ago.

Lions turn tables on Prairie, 35-9

Bob Forsyth said he never mentioned it.

“I don’t recall it ever coming up,” he said as a big smile crossed his face.

The “it” of which the veteran Linn-Mar football coach spoke was the result of the Lions last visit to John Wall Field in Week 8 of the 2013 season against Prairie.

In that contest, the Hawks amassed 615 total yards en route to a 63-17 victory.

What a difference 10 months can make.

Linn-Mar’s defense held Prairie to just 72 yards on the ground while the offense took advantage of five Prairie turnovers to win the 2014 opener, 35-9, on a rainy night at Prairie.

Cougars tripped by No.5 Trojans, 12-9

IOWA CITY - Cedar Rapids Kennedy football fans had to like their chances when Iowa City West faced a 4th-and-15 predicament late in the game and the Cougars clinging to a slim 9-6 lead.

One more stop. One more tackle. One more play and Kennedy would have come from Iowa City with a satisfying victory.

It didn't happen.

Iowa City West quarterback Aaron Bleil avoided the blitz and hit Gabe Huinker for a 33-yard touchdown pass on that 4th-and-15 play with 1:59 left to give the Trojans a 12-9 victory in a non-district ballgame.

"The thing about football, sometimes it comes down to one play," said new Kennedy Coach Brian White. "If the kid drops the ball, we're celebrating. If we get the sack, we're celebrating. We didn't."

Marion handles Mt Vernon in opener

MOUNT VERNON – Diving headfirst into the “Schedule of Death,” the Marion Indians swam in their 2014 season opener.

In Game 1 of a slate that offers no off-weeks, Marion rode its new-look offensive attack to a mud-ugly but hard-earned 28-6 victory over a game Mount Vernon team.

Kory Walsh ran for two touchdowns, new starting quarterback Hayden Meister connected with Derek Smith on a 38-yard touchdown strike and the late-awakening Indians took control of the game in the third quarter to score an opening-night win that was as pretty as an offensive line trying to perform a ballet routine.

“That was the definition of winning ugly,” Indians Coach Tony Perkins said.

In a fitting image of just how daunting Marion's 2014 season figures to be, the sky opened wide with three minutes left in the third quarter, forcing the Indians to put the game away in the pouring rain.
