Press Staff Report

ROCKFORD — Don’t know if you remember — or care to remember — those Coors Light commercials where product placement and wiseacre actors are spliced into footage of actual postgame press conferences.

“Coach, we’re going to a 70s night party,” one of these actors shouts at Mike Ditka. “You want to come with?”

“Only cowards live in the past,” a matched-up recording of Ditka seems to respond.

“Does that mean you’re not going?”

For the past two Fridays, it was “70s Night” for the Rockford Warriors. A week after dispatching West Central, 74-18, Rockford hosted Kee and treated the Kee-Hawks much the same way with a 70-14 victory.

Warriors senior quarterback Jacob Staudt accounted for much of the damage while rushing for 273 yards on just nine carries, which should prompt a gander into the school’s all-time record book. While averaging more than 30 yards per carry, Staudt scored five touchdowns including a 63-yarder.

Throwing the ball, Staudt complete just one pass for 4 yards, but … you might have guessed it … it was for a touchdown with Brett Hansen on the receiving end.

Kaden Lyman had 141 yards on just eight carries and scored two TDs, including a 50-yarder.

Rockford’s defense also scored a touchdown with Colton Ewing’s 57-yard interception return.

The undefeated Warriors will likely face their toughest test of the season when they host Don Bosco, Gilbertsville — the No. 1 ranked team in Iowa’s 8-Man class. Last Friday, Don Bosco beat up on Baxter, 84-6.

Don Bosco’s ranking is based on the Associated Press weekly poll. This week, Rockford received a vote in the poll.

CENTRAL SPRINGS 28, NORTH BUTLER 21: The Bearcats fell to 1-1 while the Panthers improved to 2-0.

North Butler will host undefeated Dike-New Hartford on Friday.

BELMONDE-KLEMME 55, NASHUA-PLAINFIELD 0: The Huskies fell to 0-2 after suffering another shutout defeat. They will try to finally get on the board as well as the win column when they travel to face Newman Catholic (1-1) on Friday.
