Muskies trip Prairie girls again

In their four years, the Prairie girls have never defeated Muscatine in the two teams’ traditional season opener.

They certainly had their chance Saturday night at home but were flummoxed by turnovers and missed free throws.

After leading early, the Hawks ended up losing 56-46.

A veteran squad that made it to state last season, the Muskies came out as cold as the weather outside, And they couldn’t keep from fouling. But the Hawks failed to take full advantage.

Athletic Warriors ready for next step

Adam Sanchez inherited a winless program last season when he became the boys basketball coach at Cedar Rapids Washington and led the revived Warriors to a 7-16 record after a slow start.

From the look of things, the Warriors could be ready for another leap forward this season.

"I like our group a lot," Sanchez said during practice Thursday. "I think we have a lot of good pieces, a lot of different pieces that make us a pretty tough matchup.

"We're trying to find out what pieces fit together and what guys are playing well together, but I think we'll have a good group and the competition has been extremely good in practice."

J-Hawks top Indians in girls jamboree

As part of a full night of season-opening exhibition games Friday in the Kennedy Jamboree, the Jefferson girls may have set a dubious record.

In their abbreviated 16-minute 34-28 win over Marion, the J-Hawks committed 18 fouls with 11 of them coming in the first quarter.

One of their players, Kieley Brathwaite, even managed to foul out despite a format in which coaches used their whole roster to get the kinks out.

“Obviously, we have to quit fouling so much,” said Jefferson Coach Jason Edwards. “The girls got a little too itchy and a little too grabby out there tonight.”

Dowling too strong for Saints, 44-13

CEDAR FALLS - Years from now, or perhaps sooner, the Xavier Saints will truly appreciate what they accomplished the past two years with a 25-3 record and two straight trips to the Class 4A championship game.

Right now, however, the emotions are a little raw, the sting a little too sharp.

Dowling quarterback Ryan Boyle picked the Saints apart Friday night with one of the most sensational performances in championship game history as the top-ranked Maroons rolled to a 44-13 victory before about 10,000 fans in the UNI-Dome.

Boyle ran for four touchdowns, passed for two touchdowns and accounted for 365 yards of total offense against the top-rated defense in the entire state.

Persistence pays off for RoughRiders

The RoughRiders kept stuffing the turkey on Friday, till everything was gravy.

Cedar Rapids beat Muskegon 3-2 in overtime at The Stable, outshooting the Lumberjacks better than 2-to-1 (48 to 21).

"We stuck with it," RoughRiders Coach Mark Carlson said. "We got a lot of rubber on their net tonight. I liked the way we hung tough; we didn't panic.

"I thought we showed great toughness there in overtime, getting it done."
