nighthawk logoRock Valley, Iowa — Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley defeated Central Lyon/George Little Rock 21-7 at Nick Hulst field in Rock Valley Friday night.

Central Lyon/George-Little Rock would get on the board first midway through the 2nd quarter after a defensive struggle throughout the first quarter. CJ Roths would set up the TD by scampering 52 yards to the Nighthawk 4. Then Roths would power it in for the 4 yard score making it 7-0 with 6:32 left in the first half and that would be the score heading into halftime.

Boyde-Hull/Rock Valley would make the necessary adjustments coming into the 2nd half though. Facing a 4th down deep in Lion territory, Brett Moser would hit a wide open Kyle Bakker in the endzone to knot it up at 7’s with 5:31 left in the 3rd quarter. The Nighthawks would get on the board again late in the 3rd as Brett Moser would take a 38 yard highlight reel run all the way to the CL/GLR 2 yard line. Kyle Van Ginkel would punch it in for the 2 yard score, making it 14-7 in favor of the Nighthawks late in the 3rd. BHRV would add another score early in the fourth when Myles Van Maanen found an opening and took it 73 yards to the house making it 21-7 with 9:05 left in the game, and that would be your final as the Nighthawks came away with the non-district win.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley improves to 4-1 on the season and heads to Heelan next Friday.

Central Lyon/George-Little Rock falls to 1-4 and heads to Okoboji next week.
