BLOOMFIELD – The Central Lee Hawks finished the year on an uptick with back-to-back wins as they knocked off Davis County 28-6 Friday night.
Davis County got on the board first with a 32 yard touchdown strike through the air with just under four minutes gone in the first quarter, but that’s all the scoring the Mustangs would get in the game as Central Lee dominated from that point on.
Senior Adam Boeck would get his first of three touchdown runs of the night on Central Lee’s next possession on a 1-yard plunge. The Hawks would miss the PAT to tie the game at 6-6.
Neither team was able to put up any points in the second period, but half way through the third period Boeck would capitalize on some hard running by senior Dalton Westercamp, who had 140 yards on 32 carries on the night.
Boeck was score on a quarterback keeper from three yards out. The Hawks tried a 2-point conversion run after the score to make up for the missed PAT, but the run failed and Central Lee had a 12-6 lead with 8:23 left in the third.
With the Hawks first possession in the final period, Boeck again scored at the goal line on a 1-yard run, but his time he hooked up with TJ Stutes for a two-point pass play to give Central Lee 20-6 lead with 11:58 left in the game.
Westercamp would find the endzone for the first time of the night with 6:13 left in the game on a seven yard scamper and Boeck threw to Dylan Stuecker for the two point conversion to set the final at 28-6.
The Hawks finished the season 2-7 tied for fourth in Class 2A’s District 6, which is a marked improvement over the 2018 squad that finished winless on the year.
Mid Prairie and Williamsburg tied for the district title with 6-3 records.
Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont was third at 3-6. The Hawks tied with Davis County at 2-7, and Albia finished the year 1-8.
