Metro Sports Report

Perrion Scott wins Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar senior Perrion Scott is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Scott rushed for 147 yards and three touchdowns on just seven carries Friday night as the ninth-ranked Lions crushed Clinton, 49-7, in Clinton.

Scott, who is one of the top sprinters in the state, is averaging a robust 11 yards per carry for Linn-Mar this season. He has rushed 26 times for 287 yards with four touchdowns, including a 61-yard gallop against Clinton.


Fichtner lifts Mustangs in 2 OTs

Marco Fichtner scored in the 102nd minute of the game Tuesday to give Mount Mercy a 2-1 victory over Dordt in double-overtime at the Lower Kingston Field.

Hieu Ngo collected the assist on Fichtner's game-winner as the Mustangs raised their soccer record to 7-1 for the season.

Dordt took a 1-0 lead in the first half on a goal by VJ Hachaba. Jamie Booth tied the game for Mount Mercy, 1-1, in the second half with an assist from Fichtner in the 57th minute.

Mount Mercy out-shot Dordt in the match, 15-9.

Warriors claim Mississippi Division golf

The Washington Warriors got a pair of 64's from Frank Lindwall and Jake Patterson Monday and won the Mississippi Division golf meet at Airport National.

The Warriors finished with a four-man score of 267 to edge Xavier (270) and Prairie (271) in a tight race for team honors.

Sam Martin of Xavier took medalist honors with an even-par 63.

Mitch Lorenz led Prairie with a 66.


Cougars rule Valley Division golf

IOWA CITY - The Kennedy Cougars won the Valley Division golf meet by 20 shots Monday at Finkbine Golf Course in Iowa City.

Davis Sutton, Cole Murdock and Tanner Stewart of Kennedy shared medalist honors at 5-over-par 77 on the University of Iowa course. Conner Koberg of Kennedy tied for fourth with a 79.

The Cougars finished with a four-man score of 310. Linn-Mar placed second at 330. Trevor McCann, Max Thrune and Brent Larson led the Lions at 82.


Metro teams feasting on MAC (mostly)

Many of us hated to see the demise of the Mississippi Valley Conference as a football league this season, but it's certainly been good for Metro teams so far.

Metro clubs have a 4-1 record against teams from the old Mississippi Athletic Conference, and you may remember it was those MAC teams who were in favor of dumping conference games in favor of districts.

The MAC schools were tired of playing each other and wanted some variety. They're getting it now, along with some lumps.

It began in Week 2 of the season when Xavier dumped Davenport Assumption in a Class 3A game, 30-6, and Linn-Mar topped Pleasant Valley in a Class 4A contest, 21-14.

There was more of the same Friday night when Linn-Mar belted Clinton, 49-7, and the Jefferson J-Hawks strolled by Davenport North, 42-7. The only blemish for Metro teams against MAC clubs so far was Kennedy's 24-7 loss to North Scott Friday.
