RoughRiders bust out against Gamblers

A rowdy second period couldn't put the RoughRiders off their game, and Cedar Rapids snapped a three-game losing streak on Friday with a 4-3 victory over Green Bay at The Stable.

Cedar Rapids killed five Green Bay (12-6-4) power plays and came up with two clutch goals in the third period to improve to 13-6-1.

The RoughRiders had lost their previous three games, and had scored just one goal combined in their last two contests.

"We just knew we had to keep going, keep plugging away," forward Jason Kalinowski said. "We knew we were playing well. We just had a couple bad bounces; we knew it was going to come with hard work."

City High gives Saints tough lesson

Xavier Coach Tom Lilly likes to play Class 5A Mississippi Valley schools because he thinks it toughens his team up for the Class 4A state tournament.

He got what he wished for Friday night in the Saints' home opener when Class 5A No. 2 Iowa City High came calling and walked away with a 68-49 win over the Class 4A No.3 Saints.

Considering that the Little Hawks (4-0, 2-0 MVC) had beaten their first three foes by an average of 50 points, it might even be said that Xavier (3-1, 1-1) held them in check.

Warriors whacked by Bettendorf, 67-35

Cedar Rapids Washington Coach Adam Sanchez is going to be an expert on the boys basketball ratings by this time next week.

That's unfortunate for him.

Washington opened the season Friday night with a 67-35 loss to Bettendorf, which finished 24-1 last year and played for the Class 4A state title in March.

Big 3rd period sends Lions past IC West

It took a massive comeback in the third quarter to rally Linn-Mar from an 18-9 halftime deficit and send the Lions past Iowa City West Friday night in girls basketball at Linn-Mar.

Linn-Mar outscored Iowa City West 26-9 in the third quarter, and used a deliberate offense down the stretch to salt away a 42-32 victory over the Women of Troy.

“They made a run in that third quarter and we didn’t respond.  They made some key outside jumpers and we forced some things on our end of the floor,” lamented Iowa City West Coach B.J. Mayer.

Defense leads Cougars in opener

Kennedy’s defensive intensity limited Burlington to only six points in the second quarter and it was that defense that proved to be the difference as the Cougars downed Burlington, 54-46, in boys basketball Friday night at Kennedy.

The Cougars built an eight-point lead at half and maintained it throughout the second half for the victory.  Defense and fresh legs were the difference in the game.

“It’s not easy to play with that kind of intensity,” said first-year Kennedy Coach Jon McKowen.  “We are deep and we can play a lot of kids.”

A.J. Carter and John Bardsley led Kennedy (1-0) with 13 points apiece and Drew Heitland came in off the bench to contribute 11.
