The Cedar Rapids Xavier Saints were celebrating homecoming Friday night. On the first posession for Xavier, tailback Brendan Miller would have the football jarred loose after the defenders' pad hit the ball, the Wahawks recovered.
Then on 3rd and 6, Alexander Young finds Mike Price in the end zone for the 7-0 West lead.
But on the ensuing kick-off, Nick Steingraeber goes just about untouched for an 86 yard touchdown strike and the game is tied at 7 all.
Xavier pulled ahead; on 2nd and goal, Reggie Schulte tossed a touchdown pass to 6'8 230 pound Matt Nelson for the 14-7 lead.
Then late in the 2nd quarter on 1st and goal, Schulte threw his second touchdown pass of the game this time to Corbin Woods it was 28-7 at halftime. Xavier goes on to win easily 49-14 to improve to 7-0 going into the big showdown next week with unbeaten Cedar Falls.
