  • Burlington Central falls to North Boone Oct 20, 2012 12:16 AM
    Tyler Majewski's perfect touchdown pass to Joe Breeden with time winding down was the perfect type of ending football players dream of Friday night at Burlington Central's Rocket Hill.These were two seniors playing in a game where a Big Northern East title and playoff berth was at stake before a big home crowd. Majewski lofted the ball over a couple of North Boone defenders and Breeden raced under it on the left sideline and took it into the end zone from 22 yards with 1:10 to play.Unfortunately for the Rockets, all the late touchdown did was prevent a shutout as they are most likely going to be left out of the 256-team playoff field when it is announced tonight. Senior quarterback-safety Austin Baden led a perfect first-half storm where North Boone did all of its scoring to win the division title outright with a 36-7 victory.

  • Big Northern East still goes through Richmond Aug 23, 2012 9:23 PM
    When is a question more like an answer? When the question pertains to Richmond-Burton's ability to reload and still challenge for the Big Northern Conference's East Division title. Entering last season it seemed as though the Rockets' run of back-to-back division titles was in jeopardy. They opened the campaign with new players at 17 of 22 positions following an 11-1 finish in 2010. They were vulnerable, right?

Our theme all week was ‘we get this one, we get that ‘C’ next to our name, and it says clinch,” Crabel said after the Rockets’ Big Northern East affair Friday night at Rocket Hill. Not only did they get that “C”, they did so in grand fashion. For the first time since 2007, the Rockets are playoff bound after stomping on North Boone, 49-7.

  • Hampshire wins 37th straight in BN-East Jan 29, 2011 8:53 PM
    There wasn’t a whole lot that Hampshire did wrong against North Boone on Saturday. The Whips jumped out to 28-9 by the end of the first quarter and forced North Boone into 17 first-half turnovers. Hampshire had all 5 starters score in the first quarter with even ball distribution. But the most impressive stat of the night was Hampshire’s overall team defense, which limited North Boone (8-12, 3-5) to just 10 shot attempts in the first half. The lack of shots allowed Hampshire to cruise to a 75-29 Big Northern Conference East victory, the Whips’ 37th straight win in the league. “Our defense really stepped up tonight,” Hampshire guard Jessie Van Dorin said. “We played really well tonight. We really played as a team.” The team concept worked perfectly for the Whips (22-2, 8-0). Van Dorin had 18 points off six 3-pointers to lead all players, Karla Vietinghoff tallied 17 points, Alex Dumoulin added 12 and Michelle Dumoulin chipped in 8. Grace Jakubowski scored 5 points, but finished with 8 assists and 5 steals, while Jennifer Dumoulin scored 8 points off the bench. “We talk about equal opportunity and taking shots from where we are shooting well,” Hampshire coach Ed Haugens said. “It’s not like we’re setting up any one player to score. The girls are seeing each other better. They’re not just looking for the strong side players, they’re looking for the weak side.” Vietinghoff was a recipient of the weakside ball movement. The senior forward opened the game up going 3 of 3 in the first quarter, including draining a pair of 3-pointers coming off a weakside screen. “My teammates were helping me out,” said Vietinghoff, who also added 5 steals and 2 assists in the win. “We’re looking for each other more.” Hampshire finished with 19 assists on its 30 shots, with 7 players recording at least 1 assist. Hampshire’s patience showed as it shot 61.1 percent (11 of 18) from the floor in the first quarter. Michelle Dumoulin (3 steals, 2 assists) connected on all 3 of her shot attempts in the first period. Alex Dumoulin scored 8 points in the second quarter as Hampshire outscored North Boone 20-6 in the period. The Vikings did not get a shot attempt off until there was 3 minutes, 7 seconds left in the quarter. Hampshire was leading 41-11 before North Boone connected on its first basket of the second quarter to cut the lead to 41-13 with 2:30 left in the first half. Ashlea Ekberg and Megan Johnson finished with 6 points apiece to lead North Boone, while Elisa Wood added 6 rebounds for Hampshire.

    The battle of the Big Northern East unbeatens went to the three-time defending champs Tuesday night as Hampshire hit the road for Richmond-Burton and came home with a 51-42 win. The Whip-Purs (20-2, 7-0) established the 9-point lead by halftime and then held it through the second half. Karla Vietinghoff led the way for Hampshire with 16 points, with Alex Dumoulin adding 15. St. Edward 67, Wheaton Academy 42: St. Edward fell behind 18-15 after one quarter but came back to outscore Wheaton Academy 52-24 the rest of the way and post a 67-42 nonconference win at home, the Green Wave’s fourth straight win.

  • Hampshire rolls over North Boone Jan 11, 2011 10:35 PM
    Hampshire worked its inside-outside game to near perfection Tuesday. Pat Azizi, with 19 points, took care of the outside part, while Tyler Watzlawick, with 18 points and 13 rebounds, handled the inside duties. Together, they led the Whip-Purs in a 74-38 romp over North Boone in Big Northern East boys basketball action in Poplar Grove. Tyler Crater added 12 points, Shane Hernandez had 9 points and 6 boards, and Chris West added 6 points off the bench for Hampshire (11-4, 4-0). North Boone didn’t play nearly as badly as the score indicated, but the Vikings couldn’t buy a bucket. And when big man Tim Huber got in early foul trouble, Watzlawick was able to run rampant in the paint. “We stuck to our game plan and we executed it,” said Hampshire coach Bob Barnett, whose team invades rival Burlington Central’s gym on Saturday. “That’s our inside-out, high-low stuff. Our assistant coach has been watching Kansas tapes for 2 years waiting for this group, and we put it in over the summer.” Hampshire broke open a close game with an 11-2 run beginning with the last basket of the first quarter and covering most of the second. The Whips put the game completely out of reach with an 11-0 burst in the third period. Azizi had 11 points and Watzlawick 8 in the period. Azizi nailed five 3-pointers, while Watzlawick scored down low and was a perfect 6-for-6 from the free-throw line. The Whips were 16-for-19 from the line. Watzlawick also led the way as the Whip-Purs held a 35-18 rebounding advantage. Kyle Koepp led North Boone with 9 points, but the Vikings couldn’t sustain anything offensively. They shot just 26 percent in the first half while falling behind by 14 points.

  • Scouting Burlington Central at North Boone Oct 15, 2010 1:15 AM
    Burlington Central (2-5, 2-1) at North Boone (3-4, 1-2) When: today at 7 p.m. Last year: Burlington Central 20, North Boone 12 Last week: Marengo 24, North Boone 21; Burlington Central 33, Harvard 24 Outlook: The second-place Rockets go for their third straight win in a Big Northern East contest in Poplar Grove. The Central defense will face a potent spread offense, led by sophomore quarterback Austin Baden. Since taking over for the injured Alex Albrecht earlier this season, Baden has completed 58 percent of his passes for over 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has also rushed for over 300 yards and 5 touchdowns. “He’s pretty good, Rockets coach Aaron Wichman said. “He’s not real big (5-8, 160), but he can definitely throw the ball. His biggest asset is his maneuverability; He’s hard to tackle. When plays break down he can make plays on his own. Last week, the Rockets rushed for big yardage, led by senior offensive linemen Dominick LoPiccolo, Thomas Juns and Brent Sunderlage. They, along with juniors Logan McFarlane, Paxton Cessaroni and senior tight end/tackle Mark Taylor, continue to open holes for senior running backs Brandon Westergaard (587 yards, 5 TD) and Tre Llanes (531 yards, 6 TD). Burlington Central is 4-0 against the Vikings since North Boone joined the BNE in 2006.

  • North Boone 28, Burlington C. 27 Oct 15, 2010 11:42 PM
    Everything was set up for a heroic ending for Burlington Central. After the Rockets surrendered 14 straight fourth-quarter points to North Boone, they were poised for a last-second win. Quarterback Ryan Ritchie led the Rockets on a 40-yard drive to the Vikings’ 10 yard line, but fumbled the snap with 40 seconds left, securing a 28-27 victory for North Boone in Big Northern Conference East action in Poplar Grove. “We didn’t make the plays when we needed to and they did, Rockets coach Aaron Wichman said. “In the fourth quarter, when we controlled our own destiny, we couldn’t control the clock. Central (2-6, 2-2) led 27-13 when Brandon Westergaard (22 carries, 106 yards) rushed in for a 1-yard score with 11:40 reaming in the fourth quarter. North Boone (4-4, 2-2) responded by scoring 14 straight points and taking its first lead of the second half. Vikings’ quarterback Austin Baden found Alex Albrecht, who made a surprise return from a broken ankle, on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 8:04 left in the game. A Baden extra point cut Central’s lead to 27-20. The Rockets were then held on a 3-and out and punted. The ensuing Vikings’ possession led to a 4-yard touchdown run from Mitch Mischung. Baden found Jon Albrecht on the 2-point conversion for the 28-27 lead. “We had the momentum going for us, we just couldn’t execute, said BC’s Tre Llanes, who finished with 138 yards and 2 touchdowns. “Our offense came out really strong. The Rockets finished the game with 383 yards on the ground and had 3 players rush for over 100 yards with Ritchie (19 carries 132 yards) joining Llanes and Westergaard. Llanes tied the game up at 13 when he jumped over the pile from a yard out with just 57 seconds left before halftime. Llanes’ scoring play was set up off a 13-play 67-yard scoring drive. Westergaard picked off Baden on the Rockets’ 33 with 6:05 left in the first half. The Rockets then chewed 5 minutes, 8 seconds off the clock by grinding the ball down the field with 13 run plays before Llanes wound up in the end zone. The senior was also responsible for putting the Rockets on the board early in the game after rushing for a 17-yard touchdown with 7:23 left in the first quarter. North Boone answered back with a passing and rushing touchdown from Baden to take a 13-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Ritchie gave the Rockets a 19-13 lead with a 10-yard scoring run with 8:41 left in the third quarter.
