Nighthawks Fly Through The E-Hawks
Date posted - September 1, 2012
After stopping the E-Hawks on the opening drive the Nighthawks were able to benefit from a missed snap on the punt giving the Nighthawks the ball on the Emmetsburg 36 yard line. Two plays later, Brandt Van Roekel threw a long pass to Jerod Hansen for a 32 yard touchdown. The missed extra point made the score 6-0, 3 minutes into the contest.
The Nighthawks added to that number a short while later when Brandt Van Roekel capped a 40 yard drive that ate up 2:57 with a 10 yard TD pass to Colin Bolkema, the two point conversion made the score 14-0 with 1:21 left in the first quarter. Not finished yet, the Nighthawks were able to put more points on the board when Miguel Alvarado finished a 80 yard TD drive that took 4:21 off of the game clock with his 3 yard TD run. With 5:29 left in the second quarter the Nighthawks took a 3 TD lead.
In a sudden turn of events, the E-Hawks drove the ball 94 yards in 1:52. In just 4 plays the E-Hawks were able to put 7 points on the board. The highlights of the drive were when both Running Back Andrew Wellik and Quarterback Jake Jackson put together 40 plus yard runs. When the E-Hawks were able to make a stop on the Nighthawks with the following drive, momentum seemed to be shifted. However, the Nighthawks were able to take advantage of a fumbled punt return and retained possession. They would score a few minutes later to make the halftime score 27-7 after Brandt Van Roekel threw a 3 yard TD pass to Andrew Van Ginkel.
The 3rd quarter was wasted away by a long drive for the Nighthawks. At the start of the 4th quarter, the Nighthawks finished a 51 yard drive with a 2 yard TD rush by Running Back Levi De Roon. The E-Hawks scored later in the 4th quarter to make the final score 34-14.
The E-Hawks (1-1) will play at North Union next week. Boyden Hull Rock Valley (2-0) hosts Sioux Center next week in Rock Valley.
