Prep Football: Hanna Throws 4 TDs, Prairie Wins
By Josh Jorgenson, Reporter
DUBUQUE, Iowa – Jace Hanna returned in strong fashion Friday night for Cedar Rapids Prairie.
Sidelined a week ago with a knee injury, the senior quarterback sparked Prairie to 44-14 victory over Dubuque Wahlert at the Loras College Rock Bowl in Dubuque. Hanna completed 8-of-12 passes, for 182 yards and four touchdown passes to lead the Hawks to a 27-0 first-quarter lead.
“He’s such a tough kid,” Prairie coach Mike Morrissey said of Hanna. “He really wanted to play last week; we held him out as a precaution. He feels great now and had a good week of practice.
“He played well. (Four first-quarter touchdown passes) is pretty good.”
Jarred Edmonds was Hanna’s favorite target, as he was on the receiving end of 28 and 17-yard touchdown passes.
Trey Beckman had a solid passing game in relief of Hanna, completing 7-of-8 passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Prairie proved to have a stout defense. The Hawks (3-2, 1-1 MVC) forced the Golden Eagles (1-4, 0-2) into committing seven turnovers, including five interceptions.
