A fumble recovery at the Sioux Center 5 yard line was turned into a 5 yard Hunter McDonald touchdown run. Mayer’s extra point was good and Sheldon led 14-0 with 9:24 left in the second quarter.

Sheldon drove 83 yards for their next score as Balster scored from 41 yards out. The extra point was no good and Sheldon was up 20-0 with 6:41 to go in the half.

With time winding down in the half Hunter McDonald caused a fumble with a big hit on a screen pass and Sheldon cashed in with: 39 seconds left in the half on a Tanner Whitsell 1 yard touchdown run. The Orange went for the 2 point conversion and the score was 28-0 at halftime.

Sioux Center got the ball first to start the second half. The Orab defense forced a punt and the offense then went 83 yards on their first possession to push the score to 35-0. Balster went the final 24 yards for his third touchdown of the night and Mayer was true on the extra point. The scoring play came with 9:31 left in the third quarter.

The Nighthawks Big Second Half Leads To Victory

The #1 ranked Boyden Hull Rock Valley Nighthawks rode a 40 point second half to beat the MOC-FV Dutchmen 47-6 at Korver Field in Orange City Friday night.

The Dutch pulled the first punch on the Nighthawks as Trey Achterhoff hit Jay Elsberry on a 65 yard slant bringing the Dutch inside the 10 yard line. A few plays later Achterhoff threw a 4 yard touchdown pass to Rafael Sanchez and with 10:05 left in the first quarter the score was 6-0 after the missed extra point.

Both teams traded possessions throughout the first half before the Nighthawks were able to put points on the board. With 2:41 left in the first half the Nighthawks finished a 76 yard drive in 6:04 with a Brandt Van Roekel 6 yard touchdown run. During the drive the Dutch were called for a pass interference on 3rd down which kept the drive alive deep in MOC-FV territory. Adding the extra point by kicker David De Bruin the score was 7-6.

MOC-FV attempted a field goal after a long drive right before the finish of the half but came up short leaving the score 7-6 in favor of the Nighthawks at the conclusion of the first half.

Boyden Hull Rock Valley dominated the 3rd quarter with 26 unanswered points scoring on all 4 possessions. Boyden Hull Rock Valley took the 2nd halfs first drive 80 yards in 3:07 scoring on a 26 yard Touchdown pass to JC Koerselman from Van Roekel making the score 14-6.

The other two Nighthawk scores added in the 3rd quarter were on drives of 35 and 87 yards. Miguel Alvarado capped the first drive with a 6 yard score and Logan Steins added a 3 yard score on the second drive making the score 33-6 with 2:12 left in the 3rd quarter.

The Nighthawks completed the 40 point second half with two more 4th quarter scores. The first of the two scores was a Brandt Van Roekel to Miguel Alvarado 31 yard touchdown pass. The second was on a 24 yard scoring run by Logan Steins.
