SOUTH WAYNE - It was a big occasion for Black Hawk sophomore Michael Flanagan, but he wasn't fazed. Making his first career varsity start at quarterback Friday night, Flanagan completed 9 of 14 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns to propel Black Hawk to a 22-6 win over Benton-Scales Mound, which is ranked eighth in the Division 7 Coaches poll. Flanagan got the start because sophomore quarterback Brody Milz was serving a one-game suspension for two personal foul calls he was flagged for last week for excessive blocking against Pecatonica-Argyle.
