FRIDAY RESULTS – October 28

(high school football playoffs – 1st round)

LOGAN — Quarterback Jay Small ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to lead the Hinton Blackhawks to a 43-28 victory Friday night in the opening round of the Class 1A playoffs at Logan.  Small finished with 55 yards rushing and threw for another 89 yards.  Brandon Vondrak paced Hinton’s 203-yard rushing attack with 87 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown gallop.  Hinton pulled away from a 15-14 halftime lead thanks to three Logan-Magnolia turnovers.  The number-six Blackhawks improve to 9-and-1 for the season and travel to Hull to meet number-five Western Christian Friday night in the quarterfinals.  Western handed Hinton their only loss 41-28 on September 23rd and eliminated the Blackhawks in the quarterfinals of last year’s playoffs, 14-7.

COUNCIL BLUFFS — Number-three St. Albert remained unbeaten, holding off Akron-Westfield’s upset bid, to advance to the Class A quarterfinals with a 24-21 victory Friday night in Council Bluffs.  The Falcons cashed in with a touchdown with 10:17 to play in the game after A-W coach Eric Walkingstick’s gamble on a fourth-and-two play from their own 28 failed to get the first down, giving St. Albert the ball at the Westerner’s 29.  Kyle Barnes scored six plays later on a three yard run for a 24-14 lead.  Cal Eskra fired an 11-yard TD-pass to Dylan Irizarry with 49 seconds to play to close the gap to 24-21.  But Akron-Westfield was unable to repeat the miracle finishes they had in their amazing 2015 playoff run that carried them to the State championship game as they failed to recover the onside kick.  St. Albert was able to run out the clock with a pair of kneel-downs.  Akron-Westfield opened the scoring on a TD-pass from Eskra to Connor Anderson midway through the first quarter.  St. Albert answered on the next series on a 36-yard run by Luke Gronstal  to tie the game at 7-7.  The Falcons went ahead 10-7 on a 47-yard field goal by Rodrigo Barrajas on the first play of the second quarter.  The Westerners would reclaim the lead on their first possession after halftime on a two yard run by Eskra for a 14-10 advantage.  But that advantage was short lived as the Falcon’s took the lead for good on their next possession, capping a 60-yard drive with an 11-yard TD-pass from Luke Waters to 6’7″ tight end Joseph Liston for a 17-14 advantage.  The St. Albert victory avenged a 57-36 loss by St. Albert to the Westerners in last year’s opening round.  Akron-Westfield ends the season at 5-and-5 while Council Bluffs St. Albert improves to 10-and-0.  The Falcons host number-seven West Sioux in the quarterfinals next Friday.

AMES — Quarterback Jesse Ertz, a former Mediapolis, Iowa prep all-stater, rushed for a career-high 106 yards on just nine carries and Kansas State held off host Iowa State 31-26 on Saturday, spoiling the Cyclones homecoming.  Ertz added 151 yards passing with a TD for the Wildcats (5-3, 3-2 Big 12), who beat the struggling Cyclones (1-7, 0-5) for the ninth year in a row.  Backup Jacob Park had 301 yards passing and two touchdowns for I-S-U. But he missed David Montgomery on a wide-open pass on fourth-and-1 at the K-State 1 with seven minutes left.

CEDAR FALLS – Lance Dunn ran for 118 yards and North Dakota State forced four interceptions to beat Northern Iowa 24-20 on Saturday night in a rematch of last season’s Football Championship Series quarterfinals.  The Bison, which beat the Panthers 23-13 in the playoffs last season, are tied with Youngstown State and South Dakota State atop the Missouri Valley Conference.  Eli Dunne threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Briley Moore to pull Northern Iowa (3-5, 2-3) to 24-20 early in the fourth quarter. The Panthers later drove to the Bison 22, but the drive stalled when Matt Plank picked off Dunne’s tipped pass with 3:19 remaining.

CHICAGO — Aroldis Chapman got eight outs in the longest relief appearance of his career and the Chicago Cubs held off Cleveland 3-2 Sunday night, cutting the Indians’ lead in the World Series 3-2.  The Cubs won a Series game at Wrigley Field for the first time since in 1945. They’ll try to extend their season in Game 6 at Cleveland on Tuesday night when Chicago right-hander Jake Arrieta faces Josh Tomlin.  Kris Bryant’s homer sparked a three-run burst in the fourth inning that gave Jon Lester and the Cubs the lead.  Carl Edwards Jr. relieved Lester to begin the seventh with a 3-2 edge. With a runner on second and one out, Chapman was called in.  The hard-throwing closer hadn’t pitched in the seventh inning since 2012. Chapman escaped the jam, then shut down the Indians for a save.  Jose Ramirez homered for Cleveland.
