Van Maanen would run two scores in from 17 and 6 yards out, as well as catch one for 17 yards. At halftime it was 26-7 in favor of Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley.

The Nighthawks would get on the board again early in the 3rd quarter after forcing a Tornado 3 and out. Van Maanen would once again find the endzone, untouched from 24 yards out. Storm Lake would score midway through the 3rd with a Josh Werge 5 yard TD run, his 2nd of the night. The score was 33-14 after 3.

Midway through the 4th quarter, BHRV would put the game away when Brett Moser found Kobe Lutjens in the endzone on a 19 yard reception, making the score, and your final 40-14.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley improves to 5-2 overall, 2-2 in the district and will play host to LeMars next Friday.
