Nighthawks Dominate Tigers

Spencer, Iowa — Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley cruised to a 42-7 victory over the Spencer Tigers at Dale Norton field in Spencer Friday night.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley took their first 4 possessions in for touchdowns almost exclusively using the rushing attack featuring Cade Fisher, Kody Noble, and Landyn Van Kekerix.  Nighthawks drew first blood out of the wildcat formation on a 36 yard touchdown run by Noble.  The Nighthawks added another score after Spencer Tigers quarterback Jack Dewitt’s interception to Bryson Van Grootheest set up a short field.  Caleb Kats’s quarterback sneak made the score 14-0 towards the end of the first quarter.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley continued the scoring barrage in the 2nd quarter with another Kats 3 yard keeper.  The Nighthawks forced a Jon Nissen fumble, giving the Nighthawks another short field and scored a few plays later on the 3rd pass attempt of the first half from Kats to Van Kekerix for 32 yards.

The lone bright spot for the Tigers came on the following drive, Michael Jordan scored from 14 yards out to make the score 28-7 at halftime.

The Nighthawks would score in both the 3rd and 4th quarters, the first came on a Kats to Van Grootheest 5 yard pass to finish off a 5:49 drive to start the 2nd half.  The 4th quarter touchdown with 5:45 to go came off of a very short field on a poor Blake Blazek punt that only netted 1 yard.  Cade Fisher punched it in from 1 yard out to make the final score 42-7.

The Nighthawks improve to 7-2 on the season and will face Webster City at Webster City.  Webster City was victorious over the Sergeant Bluff Luton Warriors 28-21.  The Tigers end their season with a record of 6-3.
