Beau Cornwell did just about everything but sell popcorn, leading West Branch to a 30-6 road victory over Class 3A West Burlington/Notre Dame in a prep football game Friday night.
The large offensive line of the Bears imposed its will early as the Bears gained more than 250 yards in the first half.
Cornwell, a junior, passed for 194 yards, rushed for another 20 and kicked three field goals for the Bears. He also had three punts downed inside the 10-yard line.
West Branch (2-0) led 23-0 at halftime, limiting the Falcons to just one first down in the first 24 minutes.
'We are please with this effort,' Coach Butch Pedersen said. 'Beating a 3A team on the road is a springboard for us going into district play next week against Jesup.'

WESTERN DUBUQUE 34, DYERSVILLE BECKMAN 21 — Carver Conway rushed 25 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns, and Kyle Cleary had eight receptions for 111 yards and a score as Western Dubuque outlasted Beckman in what could be the final game in the rivalry for the near future.
The difference in enrollment numbers, with the Bobcats in Class 4A and Beckman in 2A, stems as the main reason.
Western Dubuque (2-0) won its fourth straight over Beckman, its ninth victory over the past 11 meetings. The Blazers last beat the Bobcats in 2013.
Owen Grover led Beckman (1-1) with 65 yards rushing and a touchdown receiving. Nathan Funke rushed for two touchdowns.
