Logan-Magnolia Rolling Through Season So Far

(Logan) Logan-Magnolia is one of only eight remaining undefeated teams in Class A entering Week 6. The powerful Panthers are set to welcome 3-2 Tri-Center on Friday. 
Logan-Magnolia has been on a tear through five weeks. The Panthers have an average margin of victory of over 40 points.  Coach Straight admits he’s curious to see how his team comes out the next few weeks of the season in a stretch that he refers to as a grind.
The Panthers have rushed for a state leading 31 touchdowns on the year. That’s more than six rushing scores per contest. It’s a balanced attack that leads the way with Brady Charbonneau (588 yards), Riley Wohlers (368), and Austin Haner (324) leading the way.

Upbeat Tri-Center Team Travels to Logan-Magnolia This Week

(Neola) 3-2 Tri-Center faces a major challenge this week as they head to 5-0 Logan-Magnolia for their Week 6 football game.


One thing working in Tri-Center’s favor is the positive momentum they carry over from a huge win last week. The Trojans embraced the forward pass a week ago in beating St. Albert 33-14. They more than doubled their season passing total in one game.


Sam Sorenson had a huge night with 176 passing yards, completing 8/14 with 2 scores. He also led the team in rushing yardage with 33 yards and one TD, plus had a kickoff return for a score. Nick Schnitker was on the receiving end more often than not. The senior posted six grabs for 148 yards and a touchdown. 


Coach Tiarks acknowledges # 2 rated Logan-Magnolia will be a tall order Friday night. He says they fire off the ball as fast as anyone and their technique is hard to beat. He also credits the Panther coaching staff for their consistency and success.


In the district standings entering this week, Logan-Magnolia and Westwood are tied for first, Audubon and Tri-Center are both 2-1 with Griswold and St. Albert lurking at 1-2.

All Systems Go for Coon Rapids-Bayard Crusaders

(Coon Rapids) Five weeks into the football season it appears on paper that little has challenged the Coon Rapids-Bayard football team. The Crusaders are a perfect 5-0 with their narrowest margin of victory being 15 points against a 4-1 Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn team. Keep in mind MMC was the state champion just two years ago.   


Their largest margin of vicotry came just last week in their 62-8 win over NE Hamilton. The team ran for 397 yards in the victory and starting quarterback Brandon Riley completed all three of his passes for 111 yards and 3 TD's. 


That 62 point total against NE Hamilton marks the 2nd straight week the Crusaders have topped 60. They are averaging 55.6 points per game since the start of district play.


On the season, Zach Evans' 1,022 yards on the season are among the best in the state. He is one of only five players state-wide to have already topped the 1,000 yard mark. Evans needed only 14 carries last week to rush for 192 yards.  


This week the task at hand is Murray.  After a strong run the last five years, the Mustangs have slumped to an 0-5 start to 2014. Coach Kesselring says they run a different offense than what his defense has seen so far. They are led by quarterback Matthew Barnes with 519 yards passing and 356 rushing.

Huge Matchup This Week for Surging Stanton Football Team

(Stanton) The Stanton Vikings will try to continue their impressive turnaround story when they face #1 ranked and undefeated Fremont-Mills this Friday night. 


The Vikings have averaged 72 points per game over the last three weeks in wins over CAM, East Mills, and Esses. That sets up a major battle with Fremont-Mills as both teams are unbeated in the district standings. 


While Stanton turned to the air for big offensive numbers in Weeks 3 and 4, it was the rushing attack that led them to a 78-34 win over Essex last Friday night. Senior Kyle Petersen was the workhorse back with 25 carries for 102 yards and one TD. Alex Bechtold and David Sorenson joined him in the century club as Sorenson had 7 carreis for 121 yards and 4 TD's and Bechtold posted 113 yards on 15 rushes for 3 scores.  384 of the teams 482 total yards came on the ground. Brady Johnson still leads the state in all three receiving categories with 41 catches for 646 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. 


Fremont-Mills may be the Vikings biggest challenge to date. The Knights are 5-0 with an average margin of victory at over 25 points per game. Fremont-Mills is led by a physical rushing attack. Their big offensive line has paved the way for 1,397 rushing yards this season.

It's Homecoming Week in Audubon

(Audubon) 3-2 Audubon hosts winless Riverside for the Wheeler’s homecoming game on Friday. Audubon has managed to stay above .500 despite a rugged early schedule. Audubon’s only losses are to a pair of undefeated teams, Logan-Magnolia and IKM-Manning.


The Wheelers ran for 240 yards last week in their 33-0 win over MVAO. The defensive shutout was their first of this season after having five shutouts in a seven game stretch late last year. In the Wheeler’s three wins this year they are allowing on average just over 11 points per game.


Matthew Smith-Petersen leads the team in tackles with 59. He has more than twice as many stops as his next nearest teammate (Trevor Smith, 27). Last week the team won the turnover battle by posting a pair of interceptions. Cole Petersen ended the game with one pick and sparingly used senior Bradley Nissen had the other.


Jake Mulford and Trevor Smith make Audubon go offensively. Smith has passed for 516 yards and rushed for 336 yards with 7 total touchdowns. Mulford has carried the ball 93 times for 546 yards. That’s an average of 5.9 yards per rush with 6 TD’s on the ground plus a punt and a kickoff return for touchdown. Mitchell Nelsen has been the team’s top target in the air. The junior dual-sport standout has caught 11 passes for 200 yards and 3 TD’s.


Audubon split with Riverside last year. Co-head Coach Dustin Christensen says the team was able to do that by making improvements every week throughout the year. Coach Christensen says they’ve been improving each week this year as well.

Harlan ends Three Game Skid: Holds off Atlantic 24-21

(Harlan) Two big plays in the air gave Harlan the offensive boost they needed to hold off a pesky Atlantic football team 24-21 in a Class 3A District 8 football game at Harlan Friday night.


Cyclone Quarterback Hunter Kloewer in his first start at quarterback was impressive. Kloewer finished the night 7-11 passing for 160 yards and two touchdowns, one to Luke Hall that covered 23 and the other touchdown was thrown to Dillon Sears for 52 yards. Nick Tarney carried the ball 17 times for 53-yards.


Despite the loss the Atlantic offense showed a lot of improvement. Senior Quarterback Joey Walker was 11-21 in the air for 132-yards. Tristen Benn caught five passes for 75 of those yards.  Walker also hooked up with Collin Baker on a couple of big plays that kept drives alive. One of those completions was on a key two –point conversion late in the game. Sophomore tailback Drake Roller carried the ball 15-times for 31 yards and Brendon Holmes had four carries for 34-yards.


The Trojans had 17-first downs to Harlan’s 11. Atlantic was successful on 9-16 third down conversions, Harlan was 6-of-12.


Both defenses were bending but not breaking until the 2:15 mark left in the first quarter when Cyclone kicker Ethan Knudsen knocked a 30-yard field goal through the uprights to give Harlan a 3-0 lead. The Trojans grabbed the lead with 4:09 left in the half on freshman wingback Dillon Sonntag’s four yard run. But, Harlan regained the lead with 1:18 to go in the second quarter on Kloewer’s 23-yard TD pass to Luke Hall. After the extra point, the Cyclones led 10-7 at the half.


The Cyclones extended that lead at the 3:03 mark in the third on a 52-yard pass play from Kloewer to Hall. After the extra point the Cyclones lead was extended to 17-7. But the Trojans battled back twice more. Joey Walker scored on a short run that was set up by a long pass completion to Collin Baker. The Trojans missed the extra point and the score remained at 17-13.


The arm of Kloewer put the Trojans in a hole again with just under five minutes to play in the game. This one a 52-yard TD strike to Hall and the Cyclones lead vaulted to 24-13. But, Atlantic would not go down easy. The Trojans bounced right back two minutes later on a Joey Walker one yard run. That score was set up by a 46-yard pass play to Benn all the way down to the Harlan one yard line. The Trojans converted on a two point conversion to close the gap to 24-21. Atlantic attempted on onside kick but failed. And eventually the Cyclones were able to run out the clock after Josh Kloewer intercepted a Trojan pass with 52-seconds left in the game. With the Trojans out of time-outs, the Cyclones took a knee and ran out the clock.


The Cyclones are now 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the district. Atlantic goes to 2-3 and one and two in district play.


The Trojans host Dallas Center-Grimes in a homecoming game at Trojan Bowl next Friday night. Harlan travels to Winterset.

Nodaway Valley Suffers 42-14 Setback in Battle for the Rock

(Greenfield) Mount Ayr’s size, speed, and depth were far too much for Nodaway Valley to overcome in the teams’ Week 5 football contest played in Greenfield Friday. The Raiders used those three factors to power their way to a 42-14 win over the Wolverines and maintain ownership of the Battle for the Rock traveling trophy.


Mount Ayr pushed their win streak to four in a row, while Nodaway Valley fell to 0-3 in the district standings. Mount Ayr scored on their opening possession of the game. They drove the length of the field, all on the ground, and finished the drive with a Grant Staats 10 yard TD run. Nodaway Valley’s defense hung tough on Mount Ayr’s second drive. The Wolverine’s forced a punt and then took advantage of a bad snap. The Raiders’ miscue gave Nodaway Valley the ball on the 23 yard line and they’d need only two plays to capitalize. Josh Allsup carried the ball 22 yards on the very next play, and then Brennan Weiland powered it in from one yard out, thanks to a good surge by the offensive line.


From there though it was almost all Mount Ayr the rest of the way. A disputed roughing the punter call late in the opening quarter sent things spiraling out of control. The Raiders zipped to a 20-7 first quarter lead and were up 35-7 at halftime. A Jacob Taylor pass to Lincoln Martin with 6:54 remaining in the third quarter put the running clock rule into effect with a 42-7 margin.


Kyle Dolechek and Grant Staats each finished with two TD runs. Taylor had a TD rush to go with his toss to Martin. Nodaway Valley’s final score didn’t come until the final minute of the game when Jackson Lamb ran in from one yard out.


Mount Ayr improves to 3-0 in the district and will take on fellow district unbeaten Bedford next Week. Despite being 0-3 in the playoff standings, the Wolverines have hope as their next three opponents entering Week 5 had combined for just 2 wins (Clarinda Academy, Martensdale-St. Mary’s, SE Warren).

Atlantic travels to Harlan Friday Night

(Atlantic) The Atlantic football team suffered a setback last week.


After winning two straight, the Trojans lost 17-7 to ADM and now enter week five against Harlan with a 1-1 District record.


When it comes to improvement, Atlantic Head

Coach Eric Waldstein says there are only two directions a team can go.

And defensively Coach Waldstein says Harlan has some guys up front with some decent speed.

A lot of fans remember back in the 60’s, 70’s and early to mid-80’s, when the Harlan and Atlantic football game used to be a rivalry game.  However, Harlan has dominated the series the last three decades. In fact, the Trojans have only beaten the Cyclones twice in the last 30-years. That was in 1984 and 2002.


Coach Waldstein says he talked to his players this week about renewing that old rivalry.


Click here to listen


The Trojan defense has been tough against the run. ADM was held to just 77-rushing yards a week ago and the Trojans held Denison/Schleswig to just 105-yards two weeks prior to that.  However, Atlantic’s pass defense has been suspect at times allowing 258-yards in the air last week against ADM and 176 passing yards against Glenwood two weeks ago.


Kick-off is slated for 7:30 we will have the broadcast on 95.7 F.M., or, or you can download the app. “Southwest Iowa.”

Riverside Taking on Another District Power This Week

(Oakland) For a 2nd straight week, winless Riverside will match up with a ranked opponent.


Last week the Bulldogs lost to top 10 rated St. Albert 54-34 and this week they face top 5 ranked Logan-Magnolia. Coach Mitch Rice says his team must prepare with an expectation to win.


Riverside posted 425 yards of offense last week. That topped their output from the first three weeks combined. Coach Rice credit’s a lot of the success to the three interior offensive linemen, Warren DeGroat, Jonathon Gehrmann, and Zach McLaughlin.



Including this Friday night, Riverside has just two home games remaining as three of their next four will be on the road.

Griswold Welcomes Unbeaten Opponent in Week 5

(Griswold) The Griswold Tigers are right in the race in a crowded Class A District 1 playoff push. The Tigers stand at 1-1 in the league with a key game coming up against undefeated Westwood.


Griswold is coming off perhaps their best showing of the year, a 34-8 win over MVAO. Coach Andy Everett says the team's defense is coming together. He admits early in the year they struggled to get everyone to focus on doing their role and not trying to do too much. Wyatt Robinette had 16 tackles last week, 14 were solos. He’s a 5’6 140 sophomore linebacker who leads the team with 41 tackles on the year. Coach Everett says he does a great job of hustling to the ball. A big benefit is that he doesn’t have to play both ways and is able to put all of his effort into the defensive side.


Coach Everett says Westwood had done a great job of establishing themselves over the last few years with most of this year’s seniors having been starters for at least two if not three years. These teams rank 3 and 4 in the state for Class A in rushing yards. Westwood averages 362 and Griswold 348 rushing yards per game. The Tigers ran for 505 yards last week led by Caleb Schaaf with 236 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Adair-Casey hosts Murray for Homecoming

(Adair) 0-4 Murray travels to 2-2 Adair-Casey for an 8-player District 7 matchup this week.


Adair-Casey and Murray has turned into a big rivalry match in recent years and adding to the fun this season is the fact that’s Adair-Casey’s homecoming week.


The Bombers are 2-2 on the season they’ve won big against Nishnabotna and NE Hamilton, but have struggled against Coon Rapids-Bayard and CAM who each have more size than they do. Coach Bireline says they match up well size-wise with Murray. The Mustangs have turned to a pass heavy attack and Adair-Casey's top priority defensively will be to slow quarterback Matthew Barnes. Barnes leads Murray in both rushing and passing yardage. 



Adair-Casey will be looking to bounce back from a tough Week 3 loss to Coon Rapids-Bayard. The fell short to the Crusaders 64-20.

Top 10 Battle in 8-Man as Fremont-Mills Welcomes East Mills

(Tabor) In 8-player football Friday night all eyes will be on a top 10 battle between two teams located less than 10 miles apart.  4-0 Fremont-Mills will host 3-1 East Mills. The Knights hold the Sports Spotlight #1 spot while the Wolverines hang in at #10. 


Early on in the season it appeared this matchup would be a battle of unbeatens and perhaps determine the district champs. Stanton changed all that however last week when the beat East Mills 66-54. According to Fremont-Mills head man Jeremy Christiansen, that game proves that everybody must come ready to play.


Andy Irwin, head coach at East Mills, admits Fremont-Mills is a tough matchup especially considering his squad is somewhat undersized. As East Mills dropped down from Class A back into 8-man football coach Irwin says they didn’t know what all to expect, but one thing they did know was that Fremont-Mills would be a big game.



This matchup pairs the top two rushing teams in the District. Both Fremont-Mills and East Mills have run for over 1,000 yards on the season.  Adding to the fun is the fact that this is homecoming for Fremont-Mills.

CAM Rides Roller Coaster Season into Week 5 Game with Sidney

(Anita) It’s been a season of extreme peaks and valleys for the CAM Cougars up to this point. As they head into their week 5 contest with  Sidney they’ll try to keep their positive momentum going.


2-2 CAM began the season on a high note by topping rival Adair-Casey for the first time in six years. After that though came back to back lopsided losses against Exira-EHK and Stanton that had the CAM football team in a free fall. But the Cougars righted the ship in a big way in Week 4 besting Essex 82-26.


The team came up with several big plays both offensively and defensively a week ago, according to coach Joe Wollum. Defensively Tyler McAfee had 2 picks while Marcus Dauerghty, Trace Ticknor, and Jarod Mckee each had one. Offensively big plays came from several players headlined by Trace and Drew Ticknor who each ran for three scores and both passed for one.


CAM’s Week 5 opponent Sidney is 3-1 with their only loss being to #1 ranked Fremont-Mills. Coach Wollum says the Cowboys have a lot of quickness. Sidney is coming off an impressive win over Lenox last week. 


Outside of the momentum the team has from scoring 82 Essex in Week 4, the team has the benefit of being fully healthy for the first time since Week 1.

Nodaway Valley Celebrates Perfect Score with Team Photo and Chocolate Milk

(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley coach Darrell Burmeister admits as he gets later in his coaching career his teams have been taking time to 'enjoy the moment.' The team had quite a moment to celebrate Tuesday night as they posted a perfect score to win the Class B Boys division at Creston's Cross Country Invitational. 


The perfect score of 15 was a result of all of the top five individuals in the race being Nodaway Valley runners. The top five in this order were: Brayten Funke, Heath Downing, Shane Breheny, Brycen Wallace, and Nathan Venteicher. None of which are seniors and Wallace is just a freshman. 


When asked about how the team celebrated the dominant feat, coach Burmeister admitted they pretty excited. He says it's been a goal they've had throughout the season. The team ends each meet with chocolate milk and plenty of snacks after the cool down. Coach Burmeister says the fan base has been outstanding.

Carroll Clicking on All Cylinders

(Carroll) Only five teams remain undefeated statewide in Class 3A football this year and the only one of them in all of Western Iowa is Carroll. The 4th ranked Tigers meet 2-2 Perry Friday night.


Carroll coach Dennis McCartan says preparing for the Bluejays starts with quarterback Will Whiton. The senior has carried the ball for over 600 yards this season, ranking in the top 10 in the state. Carroll counters with a solid QB as well, senior Addison Ross has thrown for 800 yards and rushed for over 100 more. He's combined for 13 TD's in just four games. Carroll's defense has been very stout as well. Outside of allowing 35 points against Webster City, the Tiger 'D' is averaging just 4.6 points per game on the year. Ben Wellendorf leads the team with 29.5 tackles including 4 sacks. 


After opposing Perry this week, Carroll meets winless Boone the following week before clashing with perennial power Bishop Heelan in Week 7. Coach McCartan says his team is not looking ahead to the major non-district battle.

Stanton Turns Heads with Win over East Mills

(Stanton) The Stanton football team started 0-2 with an average margin of defeat of 22 points. Since then they’re 2-0 having posted point totals of 70 and 66 the past two weeks. The Week 4 victory over East Mills raised a lot of eyebrows. The Vikings zipped out to a huge early lead and held on for dear life against the ranked opponent. 


Stanton football coach Jeff Grebin doesn’t view it as a major turnaround for his team, but rather more consistent play.



Statistically speaking, the David Sorenson to Brady Johnson connection has been more prolific as any combo in the state. Johnson leads all of 8-player football with 37 grabs for 617 yards and 10 TD’s. Sorenson is 2nd in the state in passing yards and tied for first with 13 touchdowns.


Coach Grebin says Week 5 opponent Essex likes to throw the ball and admits his teams pass defense needs improvement. Essex comes in at 0-4.

Dominant Logan-Magnolia Team Prepares for Winless Opponent

(Logan) The Logan-Magnolia football team is quickly putting the bad memory of missing last year's postseason in the past. The Panthers have posted an average margin of victory of 37 points while rolling to a 4-0 record. Adding to the impressive showing is the fact that their first two district wins have come against two teams that many expect to be playoff qualifiers. 


This week the Panthers gear up for 0-4 Riverside. While the Bulldogs have struggled this year, Lo-Ma coach Matt Straight reminds us that Riverside did beat Lo-Ma last year and still has some playmakers. Speaking of playmakers, the Panthers have plenty of them. Leading a deep group of ball carriers are Brady Charbonneau and Riley Wohlers. Each are averaging 10 yards per carry or more. Five different Panthers have at least 100 yards on the season.


Drake Cohrs leads a defense that allows only 8 points per game. The senior has a team high 29.5 tackles. Wohlers and Austin Haner have each posted 4 solo tackles for loss while Charbonneau is tops on the squad in sacks with two. 


Lo-Ma ascended to #2 in this week's Sports Spotlight top 10 for Class A. The Panthers remaining schedule following Friday night's matchup with Riverside has the team hosting Tri-Center, traveling to Griswold in Week 7, in Week 8 they oppose MVAO, and hook up with currently unbeaten Westwood in Week 9.
