(SERGEANT BLUFF) — Hunter Rohde ran for three touchdowns to lead Le Mars to a 31-10 victory at Sergeant Bluff-Luton Friday night in Class 3A – District 2 action.  Rohde scored on runs of two, seven and 22 yards for the Bulldogs.  Le Mars led just 7-3 at halftime before scoring on their first four second half possessions to pull away.  Kyan Ludwig and Judd Herzberg also scored for the Bulldogs.  Le Mars improves to 5-and-2 for the season and 4-and-1 in district play.  The Dogs host number-seven Bishop Heelan next Friday at Jim Lorenzen Field.

(LE MARS) — Trevor Bouma and Taylor Wurth ran for two touchdowns each to again lead number-six Gehlen Catholic to a Friday night football victory as the Jays beat Woodbury Central 38-28 at Jim Lorenzen Field.  The win capped a week of homecoming events on the Gehlen campus.  Bouma had an electrifying 83-yard TD-run just before halftime to thrill the homecoming crowd and then added a 68 yard run in the first minute of the second half as Gehlen opened up a 38-14 lead.  Bouma finished with 367 yards on 33 carries.  Eric Loutsch returned an interception for Gehlen’s first touchdown to erase a 6-0 deficit in the first quarter.  The two teams combined for over 800 yards of offense.  Grady Gallagher threw for 316 yards and three touchdowns for the Wildcats.  The win improves the Jays to 6-and-1 for the season and 3-and-0 in Class A – District 1 play.  Gehlen leads the district heading into next Friday’s road trip to Marcus/Meriden-Cleghorn.  The game will be carried on KLEM.
