* When: 7:15 p.m.

* Where: Kingston Stadium.

* Last season: West 62, Washington 37.

* Summary: Quarterback Nate Boland and his offensive cohorts showed Friday by blasting Linn-Mar 67-28 that there still is plenty of offensive firepower despite the loss of last season’s talented senior class. The Trojans finished with 618 yards, including Boland’s 301 passing yards. West never punted in the game and scored on six of its seven possessions in the second half. Washington lost its season opener to Cedar Rapids Kennedy 14-10 Friday. Paul James has returned to coach the Warriors after a seven-year absence in which he focused solely on his responsibilities as the school’s athletic director. His defense held Prairie to just 60 passing yards and 235 totals yards.

City (0-1) at Waterloo West (1-0)

* When: 7:15 p.m.

* Where: Waterloo.

* Last season: City 49, Waterloo West 16.

* Outlook: The Little Hawks will look to rebound after almost knocking off second-ranked Cedar Falls on Friday. Cedar Falls scored a late touchdown and made the extra-point kick to escape from Bates Field with a 14-13 victory. Senior running back Xavier Washpun provided a spark for the Little Hawks by returning a kick 97 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. But City struggled with its rushing attack throughout the game and was held scoreless in the second half. Waterloo West won its first season opener since 2009, defeating Dubuque Senior 13-7 last Thursday. The WaHawks rushed for 307 yards, including 166 yards from senior quarterback Lance Dunn.
