Inwood, Iowa – #5 West Lyon topped Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley in a 52-28 shootout at Jay Rozeboom Sports Complex in Inwood Friday night.

On West Lyon’s first play a scrimmage Logan Meyer ran 69 yards for the score to give the Wildcats a quick 7-0 lead. Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley responded with a scoring drive of their own that was capped off by a Kodi Noble 6 yard touchdown run, tying the game a seven each. West Lyon used another big play to score. Jalyn Gramstad took the QB keeper 81 yards to pay dirt, making it 14-7 in favor of the Wildcats. BHRV again had an answer. Josh Heitritter was on the receiving end of a 40 yard touchdown pass from Keyton Moser to tie the game a 14 each. A third big play by the Wildcats resulted in points. Meyer took a screen pass 84 yards to the goal line to make it 21-14 West Lyon. The Nighthawks again responded with a score of their own. Kodi Noble ran it in from 26 yards out to tie the game again, making it 21-21 with 5 minutes left in the first quarter.

The Wildcats took a 28-21 lead midway through the second quarter when Meyer punched it in from 2 yards out, but again, BHRV scored in response. Josh Heitritter was on the receiving end of a 35 yard touchdown pass to make it 28-28. West Lyon took the lead for good when Mason Maurer scored on a 73 yard touchdown reception and Jordan VanVeldhuizen hit a 28 yard field goal before the end of the first half to give West Lyon a 10 point lead at 38-28 at intermission.

West Lyon added a score in the 3rd, and another in the first and came away with the 52-28 win.

With the win the Wildcats improve to 3-0 on the year and will host MOC-Floyd Valley next week. The Nighthawks fall to 0-3 on the season and will host SB-L in Hull on Friday.

Boyden Hull Rock Valley is at West Lyon to go against the 2-0 Wildcats who come in ranked  #5 in Class 1A. The Wildcats posted a win at Sioux Center last Friday. The Nighthawks are 0-2 after a home loss to Western Christian who came in at # 7 in this weeks 1A Radio Iowa Poll.

Nighthawks Head Coach Cory Brandt described this years collection of Wildcat talent as scary.

The big key for the Nighthawks will be playing physical.

Wildcat Head Coach Jay Rozeboom is impressed with the Boyden Hull Rock Valley coaching staff and the shear number of players on the roster.

For West Lyon the emphasis this week and every week is on the basics.

Jon and Justin Hellinga bring you season long coverage of Nighthawk football on KIWA FM 105.3. Pregame will begin at 6:05 with “The Water Boys ” pregame show. Opening kickoff set for 7:00 and  will be streamed from the website at www.kiwaradio.com.

Spirit Lake, Iowa — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly fishing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For more information contact the Spirit Lake fish Hatchery at 712-336-1840.

Try near the stone piers along the Ice House Point shoreline and the rock piles off Shotgun Hill and Cottonwood Point.
