(Bedford) The Class A District 7 playoff picture continues to be cloudy. Previously ranked Martensdale-St Marys and Madrid each suffered losses in Week 6 which appears to make things look even more wide open for the four playoff spots.


The Martensdale St Mary's Week 6 loss came to a Bedford team that is now tied for second in the district with a 3-1 mark. It was  big bounce back win for the Bulldogs as it came just one week after their 42-43 overtime loss.


Cole Bonde ran for 174 of Bedford's 251 rushing yards. Sophomore Noah Thornton led th defensive effort with a team high 16 tackles. All three of Bedford's wins this season have been by one score.


The win was key for Bedford's playoff positioning because the Bulldogs still have two of the district's top teams on the schedule. Woodward-Granger leads the pack while Madrid and Bedford are tied for second place. Woodward-Academy and Audubon each have a pair of district losses. Earlham and Martensdale-St Marys will need some help to get in with three district losses so far.

(Harlan) Harlan head coach Curt Bladt commented before the Creston/OM game that his team was entering the most difficult part of their schedule. They found that out the hard way Friday night with a 34-14 loss in Creston.


The Panthers raced out early to a 13-0 lead only to see Harlan take the advantage 14-13 by halftime. After the break it was all Creston/OM, as the Panthers took a 20-14 lead with 3:41 left in the third. The defending district champions tacked on two fourth quarter touchdowns to win it 34-14.


Harlan struggled to establish the running game, they were let by Anthony Hopkins 37 yards on 15 carries. In the passing department Adam Juhl hit seven different targets on his way to 225 yards but also tossed three interceptions. Nate Kloewer had a big night in the loss with four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown.


Despite the loss there were some impressive defensive efforts for the Cyclones. Jeff Flies (20), Nick Kornischuck (17), Adam Zaccone (15), Connor Clayton (12), and Shawn Schaben (10) all finished in double figures in tackles.


Harlan's first district loss does not drop them in the district standings as ADM also lost. Lewis Central, ADM, Creston/OM, and Harlan all have one loss in the district. The Cyclones host Lewis Central, travel to Atlantic, and host ADM to finish out the regular season.



(Stuart) St. Albert leads Class 1A District 8 with a 4-0 District mark, but if the Falcons experience an unforeseen stumble there are three teams lurking right behind. Those teams with one district loss are Panorama, Tri-Center, and West Central Valley. West Central Valley may be the biggest surprise of the bunch coming off of their 3-6 showing in 211. The Wildcats are a team that ended last season on a five game losing streak, but flipped the switch when the calendar turned to 2012.


West Central Valley has quickly flushed away the taste of last year's 3-6 campaign with a 4-2 start this season. Most recently it was a 50-14 win over Missouri Valley. Ryan Joint, Clayton Scott, and Tanner Ruhland all intercepted a pass in the win which was the Wildcats second straight victory.


An extemely balanced running game has been a key to the turnaround. Five different Wildcats have run for at least 200 yards this season. In the Week 6 win against Missouri Valley it was Chris Irlmeier and Alex Arnburg who stood out. Irlmeier went for 118 yards on only 6 carries and had 2 touchdowns. Arnburg scored three times on 8 carries for 95 yards.


It will likely take all nine weeks of the regular season before playoff seeds are determined. The Wildcats oppose Panorama this week and Tri-Center in Week 9.

(Neola) Tri-Center bounced back in a big way during Week 6. The Trojan's were coming off of an 11 point loss to St. Albert the previous week and left little doubt that they were goin to get back into the win column. They trounced Nodaway Valley 57-7. It's the third time this season they have put up at least 50 points.


On only six carries, senior Doug Hoke was able to post 147 yards rushing and found his way into the end zone two times. One TD came on a 43 yard run and the other was a 46 yard punt return. Hoke also caught one ball for 57 yards. Add it all up and the speedster had 250 all-purpose yards with an average of 31.25 yards per touch. Quarterback Britton Barier had another efficient night. The four year starter passed only 4 times but completed two of them for 60 yards and one touchdown. His big production came on special teams where he returned a kickoff for 84 yards and a punt for 15. 328 yards was what Tri-Center ended up with as a team. Ben Wellman was a big part of that with 93 yards and three scores.


Tri-Center goes to 4-2 overall. Nodaway Valley is stilling for their first win of the season. Missouri Valley, Panorama, and West Central Valley remain on Tri-Center's schedule.

(Stanton) Stanton Vikings football fans are experiencing a season unlike any other that they have seen in a long, long time if ever. After being among the state's most elite eight-player programs for the past decade, declining numbers caught up with the football squad this year in their 0-5 start.


Fortunately for the Vikings they were able to rise from the ranks of the winless teams with a 20-16 win over Essex/South Page. Jeff Marshall ran for 165 yards on 31 carries on offense. He was also very busy on defense with 20 tackles and one fumble recovery which he returned for a touchdown from 8 yards out. Marshall also added an interception adding to his terrific season he's has so far, he ranks 4th in 8-player football with is 92 tackles on the season.


Cade Confer and Kyle Peterson also stood out on  both sides of the ball. They each ran for a TD and combined for 32 tackles. Austin Bechtold added 16 tackles as the Stanton defense gave up their lowest amount of points all year long. Their previous low was 39 in the season opener.


Stanton has a tough road ahead to close out the regular season schedule. They'll take on CAM, Sidney, and Nishnabotna over the next three weeks. We will broadcast the Stanton at CAM game this Friday night on KSOM.

(Carroll) From 0-4 to making the playoffs? That could end up being the case this year's Carroll Tiger football team.


Being called the best 0-4 team in the state was not exactly something the Carroll Tiger players and coaches were hoping for the this season. Turnovers doomed the Carroll Tigers early in the season and the team sputtered out of the gates going into Week 5 as a surprisingly winless team.


The silver lining for coach Dennis McCartin and the Tigers was the fact that only one of those losses was in district play. Carroll was able to get over the hump in Week 5 with a 28-14 win at Storm Lake and continued the momentum into Week 6 with a 28-7 win against 2011 playoff qualifier Spencer. In the win over Spencer the Tiger's Anthony Beyerink (127) and Nate Johnston (134) both topped the century mark on the ground.


The two straight victory means Carroll's playoff hopes are not yet over. Perhaps the Tiger's biggest test of the season comes next week whe they travel to undefeated Bishop Heelan Catholic. In Class 3A District 2 Heelan is alone in first place, Carroll and LeMars each have one loss, and hanging close are Denison-Schleswig and Spencer with two distrit losses.

(Griswold) Griswold's defense has been a strength all season long and on Friday night against West Monona they were able to pick up their first shutout of the season. Griswold has nowwon three games in a row to improve to 4-2 while West Monona stays winless.


The Tiger offense controlled the clock with a fierce rushing attack. The team picked up 309 of their 324 total yards on the ground. Kenneth Clary led the way with 156 yards and three TD's. Tyler Muhlbauer and Caleb Schaaf also added rushing scores for Griswold as the Tigers go to 3-1 in District play. They stand one game behind co-district leaders Underwood and Logan-Magnolia.


Josh Metheny and Collin Fast were the two top tacklers  in the shutout. Metheny, who had 22 tackles a week ago, notched 14 stops from his linebacker position. Collin Fast posted 10 tackles and Caleb Schaaf returned an interception 30 yards for a TD. Shaaf's pick was one of four turnovers that the defense forced as Mason Anstey, Morgan Kimpson, and Brighton Brandt all had fumble recoveries.


Up next for Griswold is a 1-5 Riverside squad. The Tigers have two of their final three games at home including a dual with district unbeated Logan-Magnolia in Griswold in Week 9.

(Audubon) The Audubon Wheeler football team put on a quality showing in front of a big homecoming crowd during their 32-7 win against Guthrie Center.


Audubon needed only 1:40 to march down the field on their opening drive and scored on a Jesse Svoboda six yard touchdown run. Guthrie Center answered right back with an 87 yard scoring drive that ate up 9:04 on the clock. Gavin Laughery tied the game at 7-7 with his three yard touchdown plunge.


From the second quarter on the Audubon Wheelers took over. Audubon's defense was able to limit Guthrie Center the rest of the way and the offensive line opened up big holes for Lucas Smith-Petersen and Trevor Smith to run through. Smith-Peterson ran for over 100 yards and 2 TD's. Smith broke off several long runs in addition to a pair of touchdown passes. The sophomore quarterback hit Colby Rattenborg from 8 yards out in the 2nd quarter and the found Drew Christensen on an 11 yard hookup in the third.


Audubon stays alive in the playoff hunt at 3-3 overall and 2-2 in the district. Guthrie Center falls to 0-6.

(Atlantic) The price of a ticket at the Atlantic/ADM football game Friday night was well worth it! The game, filled with a number of ebbs and flows, ended on a missed field goal with the (4-2) Trojans pulling off a 28-27 upset win over (5-1) ADM.


The Tigers scored 21 unanswered points in the second half and led 27-20. ADM, driving fumbled the ball on the Trojan 48-yard line with 4:57 seconds to play. On the first play that followed the turnover, Senior Quarterback Harrison Hoegh hit Sam Markham on a 34-yard pass to the Tiger 13. Two plays later Jacob Dvorak scored from the Tiger 6 to bring Atlantic within one point, 27-26. The Trojan Coaching staff gambled with a two-point conversion and it paid off. Hoegh hit Markham on a slant in the end zone to give the Trojans a 28-27 lead.


ADM drove into Trojan Territory but the drive stalled and a fourth down with :15 seconds left to play the Tigers attempted a 43-yard field goal but it went wide left and Atlantic ran the clock for the win.


Harrison Hoegh finished the night 20-29 yards passing for 340-yards and three touchdowns. Jordan Grove, ADM’s workhorse carried the ball just over 40-times for 315-yards.


The Trojans led 14-6 at the end of the first half on two-touchdown passes from Harrison Hoegh to Sam Markham for 8  and 54-yards. The Tiger score came on the legs of Grove from 20-yards out. Atlantic extended the lead to 20-6 early third quarter on a 56-yard pass play from Hoegh to Dalton Franken.


But ADM responded with 21-unanswered points to lead 27-20. Jordan Grove scored on a three yard run. Tiger Quarterback Kyle Herrick fired a 70-yard bomb to Tate Jensen, and Herrick punched one in from one yard out. But the turnover gave the Trojans new life and they took advantage of it and pulled off the upset 28-27.


Atlantic now (4-2, 1-2), heads to Perry next Friday night. ADM (5-1, 2-1) will play Lewis Central.

(Shenandoa) Several ranked teams were on display last night at the cross country meet in Shenandoah. Shenendoah-Essex and Griswold claimed team titles.


Class 1A's #1 ranked girls cross country team showed once again why they are deserving of that rankings. The Tigers produced the individual champion and runner-up. Rebekah Topham and Jordyn Sindt went 1-2 once again. Alyx Flippin also came through with a fourth place finish for Griswold.


Shenandoah-Essex, ranked 15th in Class 2A boys, will likely be moving up the next time the rankings come out. The Mustangs were led by Sean Skillern and Zac McCoy going 1-2. Finishing 4th for Shenandoah Essex was Nate Hoyt, and Joe Blake was 7th.

(Audubon) It's homecoming in Audubon this week and the Wheeler football team will be looking to do something that they haven't been able to accomplish since the 2010 season--that's win back-to-back games.


Audubon downed Bedford in wild 43-42 overtime game last week and now host a Guthrie Center team that is 0-5.


Audubon will be playing without their top two running backs who also happen to be two of their three linebackers. The lineup changes will force the Wheelers to shift things around on both offense and defense. Head coach Monte Reibhoff says Lucas Smith-Petersen will start at running back and the defense will shift to a 5-3 front. The good news for Audubon is that one of their leading tackler, Kolton Jensen, returns from injury this week.


Coach Reibhoff warns his team that Guthrie Center is better than their 0-5 record shows. The Tigers were without three key players in their narrow loss last week to Woodward-Academy and played stride-for-stride with Bedford the prior week.

(Manning) All eyes in Class 1A District 2 this week are on the IKM-Manning and Fort Dodge, St. Edmond game. Both teams are ranked in the top ten and both are undefeated. The winner won't secure a district championship, but they will put themselves in the driver's seat heading into the final three weeks of the regular season.


IKM-Manning's strong defense will be faced with perhaps their toughest test of the year. The Wolve's have only given up 15 point per game, but now they face a St. Edmond offense that has scored over 40 points in three of their five games. St. Edmond's offensive damage has come on the ground as running backs Alex Merigle's 924 yards ranks 4th in the state.


The Wolves have a strong running game of their own, one that ran for over 230 yards in the 35-6 win over Sioux Central, Sioux Rapids last week. Shayne Wiese, Scott Opperman, Devontay Hocken, Cody Eischeid and Sam Wegner have all run for at least 198 yards on the season.


Coaches on both sides have indicated IKM-Manning has a size advantage up front, but St. Edmond has a quick defensive and offensive line. Finding out whether the size or speed wins out will go a long ways in deciding this big district title showdown.

(Greenfield) In the Pride of Iowa conference Tuesday night it was Nodaway Valley downing Mount Ayr in four sets. Nodaway Valley was victories in the first, third, and fourth sets (25-20, 18-25, 25-21, and 25-21).


Christine Gross led the team with nine kills. Sydney Reeves and Shelby Venteicher combined for 22 digs in Nodaway Valley's seventh win of the season.


Nodaway Valley has won four of their last five matches heading into next Tuesday's matchup with 2-19 Lenox.

(Exira) Exira-EHK picked up a huge victory last Friday night when they doubled up on Glidden-Ralston 40-20. They were able to overcome early turnovers to get teh win which keeps Exira-EHK undefeated and puts them in the driver's seat for a district championship.


Exira-EHK rumbled for 358 yards in the big win. Drew Peppers went for 166 yards and two scores while Trey Sander totaled 160 yards and three scores. Nick Peppers saw limited carries due to an ankle injury but still added 32 yards plus 16 tackles defensively.


The Spartan's remaining schedule features district games against Coon Rapids-Bayard, Ar-We-Va, and Heartland Christian. Coon Rapids-Bayard this week could likely be the biggest hurdle standing in the way of an undefeated regular seasons for the Spartans.


Exira-EHK Coach Tom Petersen says the Crusader's air-oriented attack is unlike any team they have seen so far this year. Coon Rapids-Bayard's 1,376 passing yards ranks #1 in 8-Player football and has been putting pressure on defenses all season.

(Neola) In Western Iowa Conference volleyball on Tuesday night the Tri-Center Trojans took down the Griswold Tigers in straight sets. Tri-Center goes to 10-6 on the season with Tuesday's victory.


Six foot senior Shelby Sullivan posted nine kills while Malory Christensen and Morgan Sullivan each had five. Emily Baatz delivered a team high twenty-three assists and went eighteen for nineteen behind the service line with five aces.


Another conference matchup for Tri-Center comes up tomorrow (Thursday) night against AHST.

(Anita) The Cam Cougar Football team has been firing on all cylanders in recent weeks. Following a 49-16 loss to defending state champion Fremont-Mills, the Cougars have responded in a big way.


In back to back weeks the team has picked up two road wins. In Week 4 it was 56-22 over Villisca and last week it was 46-16 over Essex-South Page. Junior Running Back Dylan Amdor tacked 134 more rushing yards onto his 2012 total in last weeks win. Amdor ranks 12th in the state in rushing yards. As a team, CAM's 1,656 yards rushing ranks 7th in 8-Player football.


Week 6 brings a matchup against a 5-1 Lenox team. Lenox's lone loss this year came to an undefeated Sidney team. A CAM win and a Sidney loss to Fremont-Mills would put CAM and Sidney in a tie for 2nd place in the district behing Fremont-Mills.

(Audubon) Audubon was victorious for the seventh time in eight matches when they topped Riverside Tuesday night.


The Wheelers got 26 assists from junior setter Susie Bylund in the three game sweep. Set scores were 25-19, 25-15, and 25-11. Senior Allie Rustvold had eight kills while juniors Haillie Anthofer and Emily Nelsen each had five kills and four aces.


Audubon improves to 19-9 this season. The Wheelers will have a big test on Thursday when they play 5th ranked Treynor.

(Adair-Casey) The Adair-Casey Bombers had their twelve game regular season win streak napped by Murray in Week 5. The Bombers came up short, 64-26, and took a big hit to their hopes of a district championship.


Despite rushing for 293, including 144 from Clayton Plowman, the Bombers were unable to keep up with Murray's high-powered attack. Murray racked up 465 yards of total offense. Adair-Casey struggled through the air completing just 4 for 14 (14%) passes for 58 yards.


Adair-Casey will try to shake off their first loss of the season during thier homecoming game this Friday night. The Bombers will host 2-3 Grandview Park Baptist this week.


Following the homecoming game Adair-Casey will have a bye in Week 7 before finishing out the season with games against Ankeny Christian Academy and Coon Rapids-Bayard.

(Creston) A head to head matchup in Week 9 between Harlan and Creston/Orient-Macksburg determined the Class 3A District 1 title last season. Creston-OM won that game but Harlan got the last laugh with a deeper playoff run.


This year the two teams meet up in a Week 6 game that probably won’t determine the District Champion, but will have a big impact on both teams’ chances heading into the season’s final three weeks. Creston-OM head coach Brian Morrison downplays any thought that Harlan will be looking to return the favor after last year. Instead the Panthers are just focusing on the same thing they do every week, which is bettering themselves.


One of the things that set Creston-OM apart in their district championship last year was the play of their offensive and defensive lines. Controlling the line of scrimmage is a major emphasis for Coach Morrison and he says the team remains strong in that area.


At this point in the season either Creston-OM or Harlan could win the district title and/or either one could end up missing the playoffs. ADM and Harlan are the lone unbeatens in Class 3A District 1. Lewis Central and Creston-OM have each lost one district game and Atlantic is hanging in the race with two district losses.

(Denison) Atlantic firing on all cylinders shut out  Denison-Schleswig, 40-0 at Denison Friday night.


The Trojans rolled up 461 total yards of total offense, 227-yards on the ground and 234-yards in the air. Hoegh rushed for 102-yards and Dvorak, totaled 97. Defensively, Stuart Hoegh led the way with 8-tackles; Chad Christensen added 7-stops, and picked off two Monarch passes.


The defense set the tone for the Trojans stopping Denison/Schleswig on their opening drive on a three and out, and on Atlantic’s opening play they scored on a 53-yard hook-n-ladder. Senior Quarterback Harrison Hoegh who finished the night, (14-22, 215- yards and 3- touchdown passes,) fired an aerial to Sam Markham in the right flat. Markham then flipped the ball to junior tailback Jacob Dvorak, who grabbed the pitch and sprinted down the right sideline for the touchdown and the 6-0 lead.


The Trojans built a 26-0 halftime lead on the 53-yard trick play followed by a Hoegh to Markham 34-yard touchdown pass. Harrison Hoegh added to the lead with a 16-yard run, and Kray Lukehart capped a long Trojan drive with a 3-yard scamper to end the half.


Atlantic picked up where they left off in the third quarter with two touchdowns before the starters were sent to the sidelines for a much deserved fourth quarter rest. Hoegh, who had a hand in four of the five Trojan scores,  hit Markham on a 21-yard pass, and scrambled out of trouble late in the third quarter and cruised into the end zone to seal the 40-0 win.


Atlantic 3-2 hosts 5-0 ADM this Friday night in a homecoming game at Trojan Bowl. Kick-off is set for 7:30.

(Stanton) The frustrating start to the 2012 football season continues for Stanton. The Vikings were shut out in their Week four loss to a Boyer Valley team that rolled up 52 points. Stanton's offense struggled to sustain drives with less than 200 yards of total offense in their 66 offense plays in the game.


Things won't get any easier in Week 5 when they travel to Tabor to face defending state champions. Fremont-Mills has been on a tear this season. The Knights powerful offense boasts a 60 point per game average.

(Guthrie Center) The start of the 2012 season has been a rough one so far for the Guthrie Center Tigers. On the bright side for 0-4 Guthrie Center, they did put together their best showing in the Week 4 loss to Bedford.


The Tigers put 20 points on the board with 2 rushing touchdowns from Gavin Laughery (130 yards) and one from Austin Laabs (37 yards). Quarterback Curtis Bolton also added to the strong running game with 82 yards rushing. All of Guthrie Center's 276 yards came on the ground in the 18 point loss.


Guthrie Center's schedule has them at Woodward-Academy in Week 5. It's the second of three straight road games for the 0-4 Tigers. Whoever wins the game will pick up their first victory of the year as Woodward-Academy also comes in at 0-4.

(Audubon) Woodward-Granger is ranked #2 in the state in Class A football and the Audubon Wheelers found out why last Friday night. Audubon managed only 123 total yards against undefeated Woodward Granger. The Wheelers struggled through the air with only four completions and three interceptions.


After taking on ranked teams in back-to-back weeks Audubon hits the road to take on Bedford in Week 5. Bedford checks in at 2-2 this year. The teams are headed in opposite directions. Bedford has won two games in a row and Audubon has dropped three.

(Manning) Despite their lowest offensive output of the season, IKM-Manning still managed to stay perfect on th season. The Wolves move to 4-0 with a 20-16 decision over Manson-NW Webster.


Shayne Wiese and Cody Eischeid led another standout defensive effort. Wiese piled up 14 tackles and Eischeid had 10.  Mark Eberly and Scott Opperman each intercepted passes. Eberly returned his 45 yards for a key touchdown. Devontay Hocken recovered two fumbles.


Offensively it was another balanced ground attack that got the job done. Eischeid and Opperman both rushed for over sixty yards. Wiese and Sam Wegner both rushed for 39 yards each.


Week 5 brings a 2-2 Sioux Central, Sioux Rapids team to IKM-Manning. Sioux Central, Sioux Rapids is coming off of a 20-6 loss to Ridge View.

(Exira) Heading into the 2012 season Exira-EHK and Glidden-Ralston were being regarded as the teams to beat in 8-Player District 7. Entering Week 5 of the season things have played out that way. Exira-EHK is a perfect 4-0, while Glidden-Ralston's lone blemish was to highly ranked Murray by just two points.


Exira-EHK has cruised through the last two weeks with wins of 46 and 59 points. Last week for the Spartans it was a 67-8 dismantling of Charter Oak-Ute. Nick Peppers found his way to the end zone five times in the game. The junior fullback ran for 110 yards on only five carries and both of his catchers went for TD's. He had a total of 125 receiving yards.


To win a district championship the Spartans will have to get past a very quality Glidden-Ralston team. The Wildcats have posted at least 40 points in every game this season and at least 58 points in their four wins.

(Anita) Without star quarterback and defensive back Trevor McKee, the CAM Cougars stuck heavily with the running game to topple Villisca 56-22.


CAM totaled 267 of their 365 total yards on the ground. Leading the pack was junior Dylan Amdor rumbling for 141 yards and one score. Brady Runyan toted the ball 12 times for 88 yards. Runyan had a season best two touchdowns rushing. Trace Ticknor filled in admirably at quarterback. He completed three of his six pass attempts for 95 yards and two TD's (both to Jarrad Cavin). Ticknor also added 28 yards and one touchdown rushing. CAM's overall record improves to 3-2. They are 2-1 in the district.


Next on the schedule is Essex/South Page who is also 3-2.

(Council Bluffs) With lopsided wins over Panorama and West Central Valley, Saint Albert is looking good in the district pictures. The Falcons are the only team in the district that are 2-0. The other teams without a district loss are Tri-Center and Missouri Valley (both 1-0).


Saint Albert and Tri-Center go head to head Friday night in a matchup that, when all is said and done, may end up representing the top two seeds in the district. Both teams coming into this game with a lot of momentum. Saint Albert has won their first two district games by a combined 103-7. However, Falcon head coach Kevin Culjat says Tri-Center will test his team's high powered offense. Tri-Center is averaging 51 points per game in their three wins.


A 3-0 start to district play would give Saint Albert a big leg up on the rest of the district with only six total district games. The Falcons check in at #7 in this week's Sports Spotlight rankings.

(Harlan) The Harlan Cyclone volleyball team is ranked 4th in Class 4A and they own a 15-3 record heading into their battle with Class 3A #14 Clarinda Tuesday.


Coming off of their state tournament appearance last year Harlan is the most highly ranked team in a Hawkeye 10 Conference that has half of its members in the top 15 of either Class 2A, 3A, or 4A. Even with all of the success of this still very young group, coach Angie Spangenburg says the team still has a long ways to go before they realize their full potential.


This week the Cyclone’s lone match is at Clarinda, a team that the Cyclones downed 2-0 on their way to an unbeaten showing at last weekend’s Red Oak Tournament.


Harlan’s sophomore class is loaded with talent. Sophomore Jess Schaben ranks third in the state in kills, Sophomore Kenzie Swanson is 4th in the conference in assists, and Sophomore Asia Kloewer is 2nd in the Hawkeye 10 in digs.


Since dropping a five set match to Lewis Central two weeks ago, Harlan hasn’t dropped a single set in their six match winning streak.

(Council Bluffs) Lewis Central's fourth quarter offensive burst was enough to turn Atlantic away 38-20 in a Class 3a District 1 football game Friday night.

Lewis Central scored on four big plays and ground out 300-yards rushing on the night. Alex Reed led the Titans on the ground with just over 100-yards, but left the game late in the second quarter with an injury and did not return.

Atlantic marched 69-yards on their opening drive capped by a 23-yard touchdown pass from Harrison Hoegh to Sam Markham, to give Trojans a 7-0 nothing lead. But that would be their only lead of the game.

The Titans scored 21 unanswered points. Austin Simmons hit Mark Savage on a 30-yard TD strike, Alex Reed broke open for a 60-yard TD run, and Sophomore Quarterback Austin Simmons found Luke Harrison wide open for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Atlantic closed the gap to 21-14 late in the 2nd quarter on a Jacob Dvorak 1-yard run to end the first half.  

In the fourth quarter Lewis Central gained a 24-14 advantage on a Caleb Shudak 23-yard field goal. However, Atlantic came back to score on a Harrison Hoegh one yard run that left the score at 24-20. But Lewis Central came charging back with 14 unanswered points on an Austin Simmons 25-yard run, and a Sam Duggan to Mark Savage 25-yard pass to seal the 38-20 victory.


Atlantic quarterback Harrison Hoegh finished the night 23-34, for 334-yards passing. Sam Markham caught 9 of those passes for 183-yards and one touchdown.


Atlantic goes to 2-2 on the year; Lewis Central extends their record to 4-0.

Now in Class A District 8, the Panthers are emerging as a force with an offensive average of 57.5 points per game in their two wins. They made their mark on the new district with a 60-0 win last week of West Monona.


Now they turn their attention to a 1-2 Riverside team. Lo-Ma Coach Matt Straight says Riverside is a well coached team who will provide his squad with a challenge Friday night.


Coach Straight also noted that the loss to IKM-Manning in week two will help is team out in a big way. He says they learned several things that they need to work on when they lost to the undefeated Wolves.

(Harlan) The Harlan Community Cyclones have gone 10-2 since their regular season loss to Carroll last year. After that Carroll loss the Cyclones sat at a very unfamiliar 2-2 overall record. At that point many speculated about the potential demise of the dynasty that Harlan has put together over the last 30 years. Since that loss to Carroll though the Cyclones have turned things around and have started the 2012 season with a perfect 3-0 record.


Head coach Curt Bladt warns that Carroll is a much better football team than their 0-3 record shows. Coach Bladt says that Carroll is a bigger team which presents problems for the Cyclones. This will be a non-district game on Friday night.

(Exira) Exira-EHK looks for their fourth straight win of the season when they take on Charter Oak-Ute this week.

Exira-EHK racked up 390 rushing yards in their 60-14 victory over West Harrison in Week 3. Trey Sander led the charge with 199 yards and five TD’s.

Another highlight from the win last week included Nick Peppers 18 tackles giving him 47 for the season.

Now the team turns their attention to a 1-2 Charter Oak Ute squad that has been outscored by a combined 80 points the last two games. The Spartans also have a huge matchup with Glidden-Ralston next week, so they are making sure they focus one week at a time.


Exira-EHK is ranked 8th this week in the Sports Spotlight top ten. The Spartans haven't lost a regular season game since Week 2 of last year when they fell to Des Moines Christian 32-0.

(Red Oak) Rebekah Topham and Jordyn Sindt finished 1-2 once again to lead the Griswold girls cross country team to another team title. Griswold narrowly topped Harlan 52 to 55. Outside of Topham and Sindt leading the pack, sophomore Alyx Flippin (pictured) placed 8th and Allison Young was 10th. The final scoring runner for Griswold was Jeana Freund who placed 31st.


“The Red Oak course is the toughest we run all year and I was really pleased how the girls handled the difficult course. Finishing 4 girls in the top 10 was huge for us along with outstanding performances from our newcomers Freund and Lappe,” shares Coach Jane Chaillie.


On the boys side the Tigers were led by Jacob Maass who placed in the 21st spot. Close behind was Xavier Olivio in 23rd place.


The Griswold cross-country squads will compete again on Saturday in Carroll at Swan Lake.

(Carroll) During Week 4 of the 2011 football season the Carroll Tigers marched into  Harlan and did something that very few teams have done in the last several years, that’s beat Harlan on their home field. But ever since their 42-20 win that was part of a six game win streak, the Tigers have gone just 4-6 including an unexpected 0-3 start to the 2012 season.


That winless start for Carroll this year has been a result of two turnover filled games against Kuemper Catholic and Atlantic in Weeks 1 and 2, and a narrow loss to Denison-Schleswig last week.


Now they face an undefeated Harlan team, but thanks to last year’s big win over the Cyclones, Carroll still has confidence despite their 0-3 start. They believe they can beat Harlan for a second straight year, but course it won’t be easy against the tradition rich Harlan.


While Carroll has struggled since their big win over Harlan last year, Cyclones have gone 10-2 since Week 4 of last season.

(Manning) The IKM-Manning Wolves have started the 2012 season with a very impressive 3-0 start. The teams that the Wolves have defeated include OA-BCIG, Logan-Magnolia, and Tri-Center.


In a matchup of 2-0 teams during Week 3 IKM-Manning ran for 342 yards to roll past Tri-Center 49-27. 136 of those yards came from senior Devontay Hocken who scored two touchdowns on his 16 carries. Sophomore Sam Wegner averaged 7.3 yards on his twelve carries to give him a total of 88 yards and one TD. Scott Opperman and Cody Eischeid combined for 74 yards and two scores on the ground.


The IKM-Manning defense was able to hold Tri-Center to 27 points which was about half of their offensive average for the season going into the game. Shayne Wiese had 18 tackles while Cody Kahl and Cody Eischeid each had 10.


3-0 IKM-Manning has their first district game next week. They will play at Manson-NW Webster.

(Stanton) Since 2007, the Stanton Vikings have only lost a total of 9 regular season games. Unfortunately for the 2012 team, three of those losses have come this year.


The primary reason according to head coachJeff Grebin is the teams youth and inexperience. Greg Marshall represents the bulk of the team previous varsity repetitions and is one of only three seniors on a team that has just seven total upper classmen. Marshall racked up 22 tackles and ran for 114 yards on 16 carries in Week 3, but it wasn't enough in a 63-24 loss to Corning.


Week 4 will bring another tough challenge for Stanton, they take on a 1-2 Boyer Valley team that is coming off of a big win against Coon-Rapids Bayard. Week 5 brings an even more difficult matchup when Stanton will play at Fremont-Mills.

(Council Bluffs) On the heals of a shutout loss to Lewis Central, the Saint Albert Falcon football team bounced back in style with a lopsided win over Panorama in Week 3. As Saint Albert prepared for their Week 2 crosstown rivalry game with Lewis Central, coach Kevin Culjat maintained that the Panorama matchup the following week was the game that his team had circled on their schedule.


When that Panorama game arrived it was apparent that Saint Albert was prepared for district play. The Falcons dominated their way to a 41-0 triumph and did most of their damage on the ground with Senior Cole Herr leading the way. Herr gained 128 of the teams 241 rushing yards. Tucker Culjat passed for 66 yards to add up to 301 yards of total offense in the victory that move the defending state runner-up's 2012 win/loss record to 2-1.


District play continues next week for the Falcons against 2-1 West Central Valley.

(Griswold) Through three games of the 2012 football season, the Griswold Tigers have only managed to score two touchdowns. In Week 3 the Tigers were knocked off 9-7 on a late Underwood field goal to drop their season record to 1-2.


Despite rushing for 241 yards in the Underwood loss, Griswold put just seven points on the board. The lone touchdown came from Kenneth Clary who picked up three of his team high 112 yards on a 2nd quarter touchdown run.


The bright spot for Griswold in their loss to Underwood was the continued strong play of the defense. The Tiger "D" has only given up 12 points in the last two weeks. They held Underwood scoreless through three quarters led by Collin Fast with 10 tackles and Tyler Muhlbauer with 9.


Griswold now focuses their attention an AHST team that has won back to back games. The game will air on KSOM

(Atlantic) Creston-Orient-Macksburg Senior Quarterback Lucas Nietzel led the Panthers past Atlantic 32-19 in a Class 3A District 1 football game Friday night.


Lucas Neitzel carried the ball 23-times for 223-yards, and scored four touchdowns to spark the Panthers. Creston-OM’s ground game, coupled with 6-Trojan turnovers proved to be the difference in the game. The Panthers piled up 414-yards on the ground to the Trojans 127. Atlantic won the aerial attack. Trojan Quarterback Harrison Hoegh went 20-31 for 291-yards and one touchdown. Neitzel was 7-16 for 94-yards.


The game was deadlocked at 6-6 at the end of the first half. The Trojans scored on their opening drive to take a 6-0 lead. Kray Lukehart capped the 12-play-68-yard drive with a 19-yard touchdown run. But Creston matched it with a 7-play 67-yard drive of their own with 4:25 left in the first quarter to tie the game 6-6. That would be all the scoring in the first half.


Creston-O-M came out in the second half and rolled up 19 unanswered points to open up a 25-6 early into the fourth quarter. Lucas Neitzel scored two of the three TD’s on runs of 3 and 6-yards. Panther Tailback Bryce Mcllravy accounted for the other Creston score. Atlantic broke the Panther run early in the fourth quarter when Harrison Hoegh found Sam Markham on a 79-yard touchdown pass to close the gap 25-13 after the extra point. But Creston answered right back. Neitzel got loose on a 56-yard run which gave Creston-O-M a 32-13 lead after the PAT. The mountain became just too difficult for the Trojans to climb after that.


Trailing 32-13, Atlantic put one more score across with 5:23 left in the contest. Jacob Dvorak squirted through the Panther Defensive line for a 21-yard touchdown run to tighten the gap to 32-19. But that would be it for the Trojans.


The Panthers extend their record to 3-0 and host ADM next week. Atlantic travels to undefeated Council Bluffs Lewis Central.

(Anita) Strong play by the CAM defense early on combined with Fremont-Mills turnovers allowed the Cougars to keep the game close in the first half before Fremont-Mills rose up in the second half.


Defending state champion Fremont-Mills took a big step towards eliminating any doubt that they are an established program as opposed to a one year wonder in their hard fought 49-16 win over CAM Friday night. Fremont-Mills marched down the field in less than two minute on their opening drive and capped it off with a Spencer Phillips three yard touchdown run. CAM was able to hang with a very big Fremont-Mills team throughout the rest of the first quarter and tied the game on a 49 yard screen pass from Trevor McKee to Brady Runyan. With the game tied at 8 late in the opening quarter, Fremont-Mills returned the kickoff for a TD and never looked back. Spencer Phillips scored his second of three touchdowns late in the first half from seven yards out to give Fremont-Mills a 22-8 halftime edge.


Fremont-Mills size and power was on display in the second half when they ran for four touchdowns. The Knights, who extend their regular season win streak to 21 games, got two TD's from Clayton Wilson (55 and 22 yards) in the second half and onother from Mackenzy Lang (9 yards). CAM's final score of the game came in the final minute of play when Jarrad Cavin reeled in an yard pass from Trevor McKee.


CAM drops to 2-2 while Fremont-Mills is 3-0.

(Stanton) With only one primary starter with a significant amount of playing time coming back, the Stanton Viking football team has struggled to an 0-2 start to the season.


Several freshman have seen action in the Vikings losses to Villisca and Lenox. Coach Jeff Grebin says the team has gotten off to quick starts but the problem is finishing games.


They'll be taking on a Corning team that is also 0-2, so one team will notch their first win of the season this week. Corning has dropped games to Fremont-Mills and Essex/South Page.

(Manning) The 2-0 IKM-Manning football team takes on 2-0 Tri-Center this friday night.


IKM-Manning has defeated OA-BCIG 24-19 and Logan-Magnolia 26-7 the past two weeks and Wolves co-head coach Floyd Forman says Tri-Center is very comparable to those teams.  The main difference is that Tri-Center has less size and more speed which will test IKM-Manning's defense. Coach Forman says the gameplan is to make sure everyone is playing disciplined defense and doing their own job against a Tri-Center offense that is averaging 51 points per game.


After making it to the dome in 2008 and 2009, IKM-Manning has been ousted in the first round of the playoffs in each of the last two seasons. Coach Forman says this year's team is better than they have been the last two years and is one of the fastest teams he has ever coached.

(Neola) Tri-Center will take on IKM-Manning in a Week 3 game that will determine alot about both teams. Each squad is undefeated coming into the matchup and both teams have looked very strong in their first two wins of the season.


For Tri-Center it has been a strong running game, an improved defense, and an explosive special teams unit that has led the charge. The team is averaging over 300 yards per game on the ground in wins over AHST and Underwood. They held their first two oppenents to a combined 23 points. Britton Barrier has bolstered a special teams group with three punt returns for touchdown.


Trojan head coach John Tiarks says IKM-Manning represents what Tri-Center is trying to become, that is a consisted program.

(Adair-Casey) Adair-Casey sprinted ahead of East Union in Week 2 and coasted to a 62-20 win. The Bombers were able to put the game out of reach very early on and then watch the clock continue to run as they moved to 3-0 on the season.


Adair-Casey ran for 326 yards and passed for 77 against East Union. Clayton Plowman went for 118 yards and three scores on only four carries. Senior Jordan Wheatley added three more sacks to his state best total of six on the season. J. Wheatley also ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Gunnar Dinkla ran for a 54 yard touchdown on his only rushing attempt and complete both passing attempts for touchdowns. Dinkla connected with Josh Irlmeier on a 39 yard score and also hit Emmitt Wheatley from 38 yards out.


3-0 Adair-Casey takes their 54.3 points per game average into a Week 3 matchup at Lamoni. Lamoni is also 3-0 and they have only allowed 20 points (8.6 ppg) all year.

(Anita) Since moving to 8-player football in 2010, Fremont-Mills has won every single regular season game they have played. That's a 20 game regular season win streak for the defending state champions.


The 2-1 CAM Cougars stand in the way of Fremont-Mills and their 21st straight regular season win. After losing thier season opener to #1 ranked Adair-Casey in Week 0, CAM has fired back to win a pair of lopsided games. Last week it was Nishnabotna that took a 50-14 loss at the hands of CAM. The Cougars got a five touchdown performance from Trevor McKee in that game. The Senior quarterback completed six of his eight pass attempts for 85 yards and two scores plus ran seven times for 85 yards and three touchdowns. His TD passes went to Jarrad Cavin who caught four total passes for 53 yards. Dylan Amdor and Brady Runyan each ran for a score as well. Amdor totalled 134 yards while Runyan tallied 39.


Fremont-Mills has had little trouble finding their way to a 2-0 record this season. The reigning 8-Player champions have trounced Corning 54-12 and Whiting 62-12 in the first two weeks of the season.

(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers will look to bounce back from a loss at AHST when they take on Madrid this week. Audubon coach Monte Riebhoff describes last week's defeat as 'sluggish.' Audubon grabbed an early lead in Week 2 before losing the game 36-20.


The Wheelers start district play this week and while the team moves from Class 1A last year to Class A this year, that doesn't necessarily mean the schedule will be any easier, at least not at first. The Wheelers next three weeks feature matchups with Madrid, Woodward-Granger, and Bedford.


Madrid, like Audubon, is 1-1 on the season. Madrid lost their season opening game to Des Moines Christian by seven points but then rebounded to beat Van Meter last week 24-19.


Among the keys for Audubon will be stopping Madrid's stout running game. Madrid is averaging 332 rushing yards per game.

(Avoca) Senior Jake Larsen rumbled for 129 yards and three touchdowns on seventeen carries last Friday night to lead AHST to their first win of the season. The Vikings topped Audubon 36-20 in a come from behind victory. AHST evens their record at 1-1 with the win in their home opener. Tyler Robinson added 61 rushing yards to help the team tally 250 of their 317 total yards through the running game. Austin Fink and Jake Olesen each hauled in touchdown receptions in AHST's final non-district game.


The Vikings will play at home once again when they begin the district schedule in Week 3. Coming to town is 0-2 Westwood, Sloan, a team that is averaging only 12 points per game.
