(LAWTON)  -- Lawton-Bronson tuned up for the postseason with a 40-0 blitz of Gehlen Catholic Friday night in a Class A District 2 match-up on a rainy, drizzly night in Lawton.  The Eagles scored on their first five possessions while holding the Jays to one first down in for a 34-0 lead by halftime.  Austin Peters caught a 41-yard touchdown pass and ran four yards for another score in the first quarter.  Matt Herbold threw his second touchdown pass of the game, a four yarder to Nathan Kneifel to open the scoring in the second quarter.  Anteres Ashley scored on an eight yard touchdown run and Cody Ricke scored on a four yard run with 15-seconds to play in the first half.  Ashley scored the lone second half touchdown on a 65 yard gallop in the third quarter.  Gehlen Catholic scored on a 28-yard run by Roman Freking on their final possession of the game but a holding penalty negated the score and the Jays suffered their third shutout of the season to end the year at 0-and-9 for a second straight year.  The Jays have now dropped 19 straight dating back to week eight of the 2013 season.  Statistically, Gehlen was held to 98 yards of offense for the night.  Roman Freking had 63 yards rushing on 16 carries.  Lawton-Bronson finished with 298 yards with 211 yards on the ground.  Anteres Ashley finished with 103 yards in limited playing time.

(LE MARS)  -- Bishop Heelan rattled off 41 second quarter points and led 55-12 by halftime as the Crusaders got ready for the playoffs with a 65-12 win over the Le Mars Bulldogs in a Class 3A District 1 match-up at Jim Lorenzen Field Friday night.  The night started on a positive note for Le Mars as Gabe Eckstaine threw a 68 yard touchdown pass to Kyle Kliever for an early 6-0 lead.  Brayden Bork ran for a five yard touchdown and Mekhi Bianchini threw a five yard TD-pass to Jackson Boever to put Heelan on top 14-6 after the first quarter.  Le Mars opened the second quarter with another Eckstaine-to-Kliever TD-pass from 15 yards away to close the Dogs to within 14-12 with 9:39 to play in the first half.  The Crusaders seemed to rachet-up their emotions a couple of notches after that, getting three touchdown runs from sophomore standout Saybein Clark and another from his brother Odessa Clark.  Heelan's defense then got into the act, returning a pair of interceptions for touchdowns to cap an explosive second quarter.  Saybein Clark added his fourth touchdown run of the game in the third quarter and Jason Sloniker kicked a 31 yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.  Saybein Clark finished with 214 yards rushing to lead a 343 yard rushing attack for the Crusaders.  Heelan finished with 403 yards of offense.  Gabe Eckstaine threw for 217 yards for Le Mars, hitting on 9-of-32 passes with three interceptions.  Kyle Kliever caught three passes for 100 yards.  Le Mars finishes the 2015 season at 1-and-8.
