Kaleb Johnson is shown here near the end of an interception runback of some 43 yards for one of several Blackhawk touchdowns last Friday.


The Blackhawks scored at will, at least in the first quarter, when they racked up 28 points on their way to an eventual 42-0 shutout of 6-B St. Ignatius.

Senior standout Bobby Clark, fresh off a state rushing record as a junior last year, rushed for 117 yards on 13 carries, scoring twice on a 43-yard burst up the middle and another short charge of 6 yards.

Everyone expected that of Clark, but surprises came from several other offensive spots as a senior transfer from Lincoln, Ty Cameron, took some pressure off Clark with 95 yards of his own and scored the last touchdown of the game on a 25-yard pass from quarterback Brian Gallea.

And sophomore Gallea, starting this year at quarterback, played beyond his years with on-the-money passes that counted for three touchdowns: a 17-yard pass to Cameron Gamache for the first score of the game, a 10-yard pass to Kaleb Johnson for another score, and the final score of the day on a 25-yard pass to Cameron.

Johnson added another six for the Hawks on a 43-yard pass interception return.

And head coach Mark Darrow's defense held the St. Ignatius Bull Dogs scoreless.

Friday, Sept. 10, the Hawks journey to Plains for another non-conference matchup with Plains, and then Troy, also a District 6-B school, makes the journey here for a game on Saturday, Sept. 18, at 2 p.m.

After three starts with District 6-B teamsall rated in the bottom half of that districtthe Hawks will face their first District 5-B match against Florence on Saturday, Sept. 25, at 1 p.m. on the home field.
