Battle for Waterloo: West beats East, 42-6

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - It was a metro battle tonight at Memorial Stadium as Waterloo West at 1-4 took on winless Waterloo East.

The Trojans were looking for their first win since former East head coach Kody Asmus took the Trojans to the 2nd round of the 2012 playoffs.

But first-year East head coach Richard Carter would have to keep trying to snap the program's 15-game losing streak.

Early Friday night it was Waterloo West as John Draine a great cutback and he sprints 15 yards to the end zone to give West a 7-0 lead.

But East fights back as quarterback John Magnuson rolls out and throws up a prayer -- and that prayer is answered by Thomas Hall, who out-leaps three defenders for the ball.

And then Hall finishes the 50-yard play to put East on the board, making it a 7-6 West lead in the first quarter.

But West answers, as Devon Moore scores on the quarterback sneak to make it 14-6 Wahawks.

And then you are not going to find a receiver more wide open than the Wahawks' Jin'kali Burkett. Devon Moore hits the wide-open Burkett for a 45-yard touchdown pass.

Waterloo West wins the inter-city battle, 42 to 6.
