Cavs ride big 3rd quarter
to conference win at LaVille
Culver scored 14 points in the third quarter to take a 28-12 advantage over host LaVille, and the Cavaliers held on for a 41-26 Northern State Conference win Friday.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Culver, while beleaguered LaVille finished the season winless.
Kevin Hogan scored on runs of 2, 29 and 51 yards for the Cavs, while quarterback Collin Stevens scored on runs of 3 and 7 yards as Culver outrushed the Lancers 410-251 yards. Stevens went 2-for-8 passing with one interception and a 6-yard touchdown completion to Sam Hissong in the fourth quarter. Stevens also finished with four PATs in the win.
Andrew Hostetler ran in a 14-yard keeper for LaVille’s first score of the night, and Tim Wicks scored on a 4-yarder to keep the Lancers within two at 14-12 at the half.
Levi Lucas broke away for a 72-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, and Cody Timm ran in a 2-yarder and the two-point conversion — LaVille’s first in four attempts at the game — for the Lancers’ final score of the night.
Culver improves to 5-4 with a 4-3 NSC finish, while LaVille closes out the regular season at 0-9.
The Cavs travel to Tri-County for a Class A Sectional 33 opener next week, while LaVille travels to Northfield in the opening round of Class A Sectional 35.

On their opening drive, the Eagles marched 74 yards in 14 plays capped off by a Ralph Laux 4-yard touchdown run to take a 7-0 advantage with Diego Herrera’s ensuing PAT and set the tone for the game.
