Trojans too powerful for Warriors, 62-37

IOWA CITY - Cedar Rapids Washington quarterback Mitch Blades put together a great game on Friday night. The problem for the Warriors, though, was that Iowa City West signalcaller Nate Boland’s performance was a step above great.

Boland lit up the humid air and passed for 340 yards and three touchdowns as No. 6 Iowa City West pummeled the Warriors, 62-37, at Trojan Field.

Former Metro preps in pro baseball

RYAN SWEENEY (Xavier, Boston Red Sox) -- Was placed on the disabled list July 31 after undergoing surgery for a broken knuckle on his left pinky finger. He is expected to be out until late September. Year to date -- BA - .260, AB - 204, R - 22, H - 53, RBI - 16, 2B - 19, 3B - 2, HR - 0, SB - 0.

Cedar Valley squished again, 72-0

Sometimes statistics do lie.

In their first-ever home football game at LaSalle Middle School Friday night, the Cedar Valley Christian Huskies lost to Valley Community of Elgin, 72-0.

And it would have been much worse if the visitors had not played their junior varsity squad after going up 58-0 and if the scoreboard clock had not run continuously from the second quarter on.

But the 300-or-so Cedar Valley fans cheered throughout. Their boys played hard right to the end.
