The heart-stopping win before a crowd of about put Jeff's league record at 2-0, the same as Iowa City high, and left win- ning coach Jack Fisk in awe. "That was some experi- offered Fisk, whose J-Hawks were involved in an overtime for the first lime. "That's really an exciting way to win. "What is fantastic is that both teams scored so easily after the regulation game was so tight." The "regular" game was 7-7. Jeff, which trailed for three quarters, tied it in the fourth period, then missed an oppor- tunity for early victory when an 18-yard field goal attempt failed with only three seconds remain- ing. The high school overtime rule allows each team four downs in which to score from 10 yards out and the J-Hawks' didn't jack around wlicu it was their calling. They scored on first down in'j both overtimes. Bruce Feuer- helm got the first touchdown on a sweep around the left side and Randy Jacobson tallied the sec- ond over right tackle. Fred Stoeker kicked the extra points for the margin of victory. Kennedy, which held every statistical advantage except for the final score, countered in the overtimes with Jud Coleman 'firing scoring strikes of 14 yards to Ken Kramer and 17 yards to Rocky Dales. They were in second- and third-down situations, respec- tively. Chuck Johnson booted the first point-after, but his second was wide to the right and thai was it. It was the second straight 21- 20 loss for Kennedy and left coach Jerry Mauren at a loss for words. "I feel like a he sighed. "I don't know what to say about our defense in the over- times. Instead of playing our techniques, we were standing up and looking for the ball. Jeff just blew us out." Fumbles proved costly to the Cougars. Twice in regulation they drove inside the Jeff 10, only to lose the ball on bobbles. Jeff also came up with a fine goal-line stand to stop Kennedy on downs at the seven midway through the third quarter. Tempers flared during one play in that series and Ken- nedy's.Bob Ellis and Kevin Mur- ray and Jeff's Mike Sojka were ejected. "We were our own worst enemy at limes, but our mental outlook took a complete turn- around from the fourth quarter said Fisk. "We just came alive."

DUBUQUE-Despite a bril- liant performance by running back Milton Turner, Cedar Rapids Washington dropped its first football tilt of the 1974 season Friday night to Dubuque Hempstead, 28-27. The shocker dropped Wash, which is currently rated no. 2 on the AP grid poll, into a tie with [lempstead for third place in Mississippi Valley conference play. Each club had a 2-1 record. The game was a genuine thriller from start to finish and Turner and Jeff Bottoms of Du- imque .provided most of the ex- citing moments. Turner, a 5-10, 170-pound se- nior, carried the football 13 limes for 173 yards, including scoring runs of 35 and 57 yards. In addition, a 60-yard .egis EPWORTIi Cedar Rapids Regis blitzed Western Dubuque for 35 first-quarter points and went on to claim its third fool- ball victory of the season, 48-0, here Friday night. Halfback Kurt Downey got the Royals off to a rolling start on the opening play of the game with a 50-yard jaunt to paydirl, Dave Marshall's first of six extra points was good to give Regis an early 7-0 lead. Downeyls second touchdown of the contest came on Duhu- quc's first series of downs. He snared a stray Dubuquc pass on the 20-yard line and scam- pered-into the end zone MFI- touched. Marshall's kick made it 14-0. After the ensuing kickoff, Du- buque was forced to punt, and (Regis gained possession on their own 19 yard line. Jim Kalisch Stalistics W. Dub.
