North Scott Advances to State Finals, Other State Scores:

North Scott quarterback Carter Markham accounted for two total touchdowns as the Lancers upset Cedar Rapids Xavier 17-10 in overtime in a Class 3A State Football semifinal last night.

The Lancers took down Mount Pleasant 58-26 in a Round Two matchup in late October and have now played themselves into the State Finals.

North Scott took a 10-0 lead into the fourth quarter before the Saints put up 10 unanswered points to tie the game, including a game-tying 33-yard field goal by Lincoln Oakley with zeroes on the fourth quarter game clock.

Markham hooked up with Parker Ruth from 7-yards out for the lone score of the overtime to period to move the Lancers to the State Title, where they will take on Harlan.

Here’s a look at the full scoreboard from yesterday at the UNI Dome:


Remsen St-Mary’s 108, Montezuma 94

  • Montezuma quarterback Eddie Burgess was 34-of-60 for 689 yards and 13 total touchdowns in a losing effort for the Braves. Burgess was named the 8-Player District 4 Offensive Player of the Year earlier this week.

Iowa Football Plays Rare Friday Night Tilt:

The Floyd of Rosedale is on the line tonight in a rare Friday night tilt as the Iowa Hawkeye football team travels north to Minneapolis to battle with the Golden Gophers.

Iowa is coming off an impressive, 49-7 beatdown of Michigan State last weekend while the Gophers earned their first win — a 41-14 win over Illinois.

Gopher head coach P.J. Fleck expects tonight’s game to be a thriller.

Typical rivalry between Minnesota-Iowa, records get thrown out the window and now just you go out there and play for 60 minutes.” Fleck said.

Tonight’s game will kick at 6:00 p.m., coverage on KILJ-FM will begin at 4:00 p.m. with the Hawkeye Kickoff Show.
