Harlan 34, Creston/O-M 7

HARLAN — Aided by a a south wind gusting to 36 mph, Harlan took advantage of good field position as the second half of Friday's suspended game resumed Saturday afternoon, and struck for three quick scores in a 34-7 victory over Creston/O-M.

The second half never got started Friday night, as lighting caused several delays. The game was eventually suspended and rsumed at 1 p.m. Saturday at Merrill Field.

Weather conditions were much different as play resumed. Compared to the calm, warm and humid conditions at kickoff at 6 p.m. Friday, fans were greeted Saturday by a strong southwest wind and temperatures peaking in the mid-50s.

It didn't take long for the Cyclones to strike, as Creston/O-M punted into the wind from its own 14, giving the Cyclones possession on the Panther 41-yard line. Ten plays alter Nate Gettys scored on a 2-yard run to make it 20-7 as a fumbled snap led to a failed extra point.

Creston/O-M fumbled on a reverse play on its next possession at its own 20. Harlan needed only four plays to score, as quarterback Adam Juhl found 6-foot-7 tight end Trey Lansman over the middle in the end zone for a 4-yard TD to stretch it to 27-7.

Things didn't improve for the Panthers on their next possession. On a third-and-two play a high shotgun snap was bobbled by Panther quarterback Brandon Phipps, leading to another punt into the wind.

This time Harlan took over at its own 44, with that drive also culminating in a scoring play from Juhl to Lansman from 13 yards out, making it 34-7 with 10 seconds left in the third period.

The Panthers then got the wind at their back, but never recovered from the third-quarter flurry. Bryce Briley had an apparent interception with 7:40 remaining, taking the ball deep into Harlan territory, but the play was nullified by a pass interference penalty on the Panthers.

Creston/O-M finished with only 11 net yards rushing. Phipps was 9-of-20 passing for 148 yards.

Harlan had balanced production offensively, running for 181 yards with another 145 through the air by Juhl. Harlan had 18 first downs to Creston/O-M's seven.

On Friday, Jesse Rathe caught a touchdown pass shortly before halftime to bring Creston/O-M to within 14-7 of Harlan at half.

Gettys opened the scoring for Harlan with a 5-yard run with 3:49 left in the first quarter.

Later, Harlan had a short field and drove 44-yards, capping the drive with a 3-yard pass from Juhl to Allan Hopp.

Creston's scoring drive started at the 11-yard line. Rathe also had an interception in the first half.

Creston/O-M, now 4-2 overall and 2-2 in District 1, hosts Glenwood in a key game this Friday to keep playoff hopes alive. Harlan improves to 5-1 and 3-0.

Van Meter 14, Mount Ayr 0

VAN METER — Five turnovers doomed Mount Ayr in a 14-0 loss to Van Meter in one of four matchups between unbeaten teams statewide on Friday.

Van Meter converted a Jacob Sobotka fumble into seven points with 4:42 left in the first half.

Quarterback Brandon Brittain connected with Grant Hoppes for a 16-yard touchdown on third and 11.

Later in the half, Lincoln Martin fielded a punt deep in Mount Ayr territory and began to return it, but lost the grip on the ball and Van Meter recovered at the Mount Ayr 22 with less than :30 remaining in the half.

After a pass interference call on the first play, Brittain hit Logan Crawford for a touchdown to make it 14-0 with :11 left in the half.

Mount Ayr was never able to sustain a drive in the second half, as turnovers continued to plague the Raiders.

Mount Ayr falls to 5-1 for the season and 2-1 in Class 1A District 7.
