Iowa City Regina 57, Panorama (Panora) 13

Note to Iowa City Regina’s playoff opponents: Don’t give the Regals offense any advantage. It doesn’t need any.

Regina took advantage of several Panorama miscues and scored on every first-half possession save the last to maul Panorama 57-13 in the second round of the Class 1-A state playoffs on Monday night at Regina Field.

Regina, 10-1, advances to the third round, on Friday night. The Regals have ripped off 10 wins in a row since a one-point loss to Class 3-A Solon in the season opener that snapped Regina’s 56-game winning streak. Panorama ended its season at 7-4 and lost for only the second time in its last nine contests.

The Regals made good on a short Panorama punt, two lost fumbles and an interception on the way to a 51-0 halftime lead, in a game in which the starters were pulled before the break. Regina started its first four drives in Panorama territory, and tallied 30 points in the first quarter alone.

Senior running back Jake Brinkman led the way, with three short touchdown runs, while senior quarterback Drew Cook kept up his personal torrid scoring streak by hooking up with Nathan Stenger on a 93-yard pass scoring play and added a 1-yard rushing touchdown.

“You know, we played really clean tonight. We played really well,” said Regina coach Marv Cook. “I thought we handled the conditions extremely well, even the second quarter into the wind and the rain, I thought we did a nice job with the passing game and the running game.”

Regina’s defense limited the Panthers to 57 yards of total offense in the first half, and held Panorama’s quarterback Gavin Richey to 9 yards passing, with the one interception, and four yards rushing, in the first half, when it mattered.

“It was kind of a tough week, because you only have three or four days to prepare, and it was kind of like a complicated defense, but all our guys stepped up, we did good, and we did all our jobs,” said Brinkman, who plays in the secondary.

“For the most part, we ran to the ball, we played hard, and it was a good win.”

PLAYOFF BRACKETS: Scores, pairings for all six classes

Regina scored first when Jacob Adam connected on a 36-yard field goal. The drive followed a fumble by Panorama’s Gabe Richey.

Panorama’s next possession ended with a 28-yard punt that gave Regina the ball in Panthers territory. A 33-yard pass from Cook to Michael Adam gave Regina a first down at the Panorama 13, and Brinkman scored three plays later to put the Regals up 10-0.

Regina’s Justin Hunter picked off Gavin Richey on the Panthers’ next drive, giving the Regals the ball at the Panorama 16. On first-and-goal from the 4, Brinkman appeared to be stacked up well before the goal line, but the senior kept his legs churning and carried several Panthers with him into the end zone to increase Regina’s lead to 16-0.

Panorama failed on a fake punt attempt, and Regina got the ball on the Panthers 27. Two plays later, Nick Phillips cut against the defensive grain on a 21-yard run, and Regina led 23-0 with more than three minute left in the first quarter.

Regina started its next possession on its own end of the field — albeit at the 46 — for the first time in the game. No matter. The Regals scored on four plays, capped by a 6-yard run by Brinkman. Regina led 30-0 as the first quarter mercifully closed.

Cook scored on a one-yard keeper and found Stenger wide open over the middle on a 93-yard pass play to put Regina up 44-0 with 4:44 left in the half. A 13-yard run by Stenger, also the backup quarterback, made it 51-0 at the break.

Aaron Barnes’s 6-yard TD run completed the scoring for the Regals.
