Metro Sports Report

RoughRiders beat Lincoln in opener

The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders got goals from seven different players Saturday night and topped Lincoln, 7-4, in the USHL opener before 2,502 fans at the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.

Neither team scored in the first period, but both clubs got hot in the second stanza.

John Snodgrass, Matt Filipe, Ben Foley and Justin Cole all found the net for the RoughRiders in the second period, but Lincoln scored three times and it was a 4-3 game heading into the final period.

Lincoln tallied to tie the game, 4-4, but the RoughRiders got goals from Luke Morgan, Jacob Hayhurst and Hugh McGing to begin their season in style. McGing scored into an empty net.


No. 5 Cougars bowl over J-Hawks

Shaun Beyer never saw the umpire who got in his way during his 55-yard gallop for a touchdown Friday night against the Jefferson J-Hawks at Kingston Stadium.

Pity the poor ref.

And pity the undersized J-Hawks for the pounding they took from the fifth-ranked Kennedy Cougars as well.

Kennedy rushed for 441 yards and finished with 510 yards of total offense in its 35-7 conquest of Jefferson before a big crowd of approximately 5,000 fans who came to see a battle of two winning clubs.

It was Kennedy all the way.


Wilson stars as Saints dump Maquoketa

MAQUOKETA – Maliki Wilson studied the tapes of NFL greats like Walter Payton and Barry Sanders. Their reads, their cuts and their moves.

Man, those moves.

"I watch a lot of film of Walter Payton. I watch the way Barry Sanders used to cut back against the field,” said Wilson, Xavier's 5-foot-11, 175-pound junior running back. “My dad helps me study a lot.”

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and Walter and Barry would have been flattered by Wilson's deft impressions of their Hall of Fame running styles Friday night.

Xavier took full control of the Class 3A, District 4 race with the dynamic and razzle-dazzling Wilson putting on a 191-yard, four-touchdown rushing clinic in the Saints' drama-less 42-13 victory over Maquoketa at Goodenow Field.

“He is a student of the game. He has a great love of the game,” Xavier coach Duane Schulte said.


No. 6 Warriors rally by Muscatine

MUSCATINE - Paul James left the visitor's pressbox at the Muscatine football field in the second half Friday night and positioned himself near the top row of the bleachers to get a better view of the game.

The Cedar Rapids Washington coach liked what he saw a lot better.

The sixth-ranked Warriors scored 21 straight points in the second half and rallied for a 35-21 victory over seventh-ranked Muscatine in the Class 4A, District 6 opener in Muscatine.

The windows in the visitor's press box could have used a good scrubbing to improve the visibility, according to a Metro Sports Report observer, and James felt a little confined in the facility.

"It is kind of an old MAC (Mississippi Athletic Conference) tradition to have a smaller press box for the visitors on the opposite side of the field from the home team and the more spacious press box for the home teams, but I didn't really care for that," James said. "It helped for me to move up to the corner of the stands in the second half."


Bach family rules at Independence meet

INDEPENDENCE - First Center Point, now Independence.

The Bach siblings have done it again.

Marion High School senior Madison Bach won the 37th Annual Mustang Invitational on Saturday in Independence and led the Indians to the team championship. Then her brother Myles, a sophomore, captured his varsity race and led Marion to the boys title as well.

The Bachs did the same thing Tuesday at the Center Point-Urbana Invitational, winning individual crowns and leading their teams to the championships.

Madison Bach covered the 5K course in 19 minutes, 29 seconds for a 28-second victory over Felicity Traylor of South Winn. Marion won the girls championship with 44 points, with South Winn a distant second at 85.
