CENTER POINT — Waukon put together an impressive all-around showing against Center Point-Urbana Friday night in a Class 2A first-round playoff game, topping  the No. 8 Stormin’ Pointers, 35-0.

Despite playing without leading rusher Marcus Weymiller for a third straight game, Waukon maintained an explosive running game.

“There’s a lot of slack to be picked up when Marcus goes out,” Waukon Coach Ted Snitker said. “Tonight was a credit to our kids working hard to pick up that slack.”

Junior Parker Hesse was just one of those who did. A dual-threat quarterback and tailback, Hesse ran for 225 yards and two touchdowns, and passed for 43 yards and a TD.

He got the scoring started when he broke free for an 80-yard run on their first series.

Following an interception by Waukon’s Matthew Cymboluk, Hesse scored again, this time on a halfback pass when Josh Thorson pitched the ball to Hesse on third-and-goal from the 19-yard line. Hesse then threw to a wide-open Hunter Hammel in the end zone to put the Indians up 14-0.

It stayed 14-0 until the third quarter when Thorson again found Hammel wide open for a 63-yard touchdown.

Cymboluk recorded his second interception to give Waukon the ball on CPU’s 49-yard line. Two plays later, Hesse ran it in from 36 yards to put Waukon up 28-0.

The Indians then forced a fumble on CPU’s 14 yard-line, and Thorson scored on the first play to close the scoring.

Waukon will play Union, which beat Mount Vernon 63-20, in the next round.
