GAME OF THE WEEK
One of the first things Marv Cook addressed in his postgame huddle Friday night what that his players realize the importance of the opponent's graciousness.
“They gave us this opportunity,” the Iowa City Regina Coach said.
It was an opportunity the Regals seized. Jake Brinkman's 71-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter broke a tie and helped Regina to a 21-7 win over Cedar Rapids Xavier before a packed house at Saints Field.
This one was anticipated by many when it was set up by the schools' athletics director last winter and didn't disappoint. Quarterback Drew Cook's 1-yard sneak with 4:57 left made it a two-score game and pushed Regina (7-1) over the top.
