Winterset solidifies Playoff Spot with Win over Atlantic

(Winterset) Winterset secured a third seed in the Class 3A District 8 race Friday night with a 35-13 win over Atlantic. The Huskies wrapped up district play at 4-2 and will play Oskaloosa next Friday in a non-district regular season finale.


The Huskies jumped out to an early 15-0 lead, thanks in part to a bad snap on a punt early in the first quarter. The Trojan defense held Winterset to three and out, but on fourth down,  punter Noah Larson had to scoop up a low snap, and with no time to kick, he tucked it and ran 19-yards for a first down. Moments later, quarterback Jacob Larson took a pitch back on a reverse and found Jack Barker wide open for a 46-yard touchdown pass and the Huskies led 7-0 with 10:01 to play in the first quarter.


Winterset tacked another score on with 8:49 to play in the second stanza. Jacob Larson heaved a 34-yard pass to Patrick McNamara that set up a 13-yard touchdown run by fullback Brandon Herr. After the two-point conversion the Huskies opened up a 15-0 lead.


The momentum swung the Trojans way for the balance of the half. Atlantic scored 13-straight points on two Joey Walker touchdown passes. One covered 49-yards to Tristen Benn, the other a 57-yard swing pass to running back Drake Roller and Atlantic was right back in it trailing 15-13 at the half.

But an attacking Huskie defense shut out the Trojan offense 23-0 in the second half. The scoring was provided by Jacob Larson’s 3 yard run, Larson’s 37 yard touchdown pass to Kolt Kiburz, and Jacob Jenkins 27 yard TD run.

Winterset rolled up 344 yards of total offense; 195 on the ground and 149 yards in the air.


Atlantic passed for 190 yards, but was held to -1 rushing. Joey Walker was 14-25 for 188-yards and two touchdowns. Kyle Nelson completed one pass for two yards.


Tristen Benn led the Trojans in receiving with 8 catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Drake Roller caught three passes for 71 yards and a touchdown. Collin Baker had two receptions for 4 yards, Brendon Holmes caught one pass for 12 yards, and Nick Podajsky had one catch for 11-yards.


Atlantic, now (3-5) hosts (6-2) Creston next Friday night. Winterset, (5-3), takes on Oskaloosa next Friday night in non-district action.

Griswold Stays in Playoff Picture with Great Offensive Showing at Riverside

(Oakland) Despite allowing over 300 passing yards and committing four turnovers, the Griswold Tigers not only beat Riverside, but won big to keep their playoff hopes very much alive.


Derek Kirchhoff filled in for Caleb Schaaf and the Tiger running game didn’t miss a beat. Kirchoff starred in his expanded role with six rushing touchdowns and nearly 300 yards. Jacob Dickinson (also well over 200 yards) slid into Kirchoff’s fullback spot and had a breakout game. Dickinson rushed for two scores and Hadley Ogg had Griswold’s ninth rushing TD of the night as the Tigers never had to punt in the game. Griswold tallied 724 rushing yards in the win.


It was an entertaining opening quarter that featured four lead changes. Griswold eventually led 22-19 after one. A trio of Tiger first half turnovers though, including two on special teams, kept Riverside in the game. A Brock Bentley one yard TD run closed the game to 30-25 midway through the 2nd quarter, but that was as close as the Bulldogs would be the rest of the night. Griswold dominated the 2nd half, outscoring their opposition 24-7 in the third quarter and 14-0 in the 4th.


Several big pass plays for Riverside helped put their 2nd highest point total of the season on the board. The Bulldogs completed 9 passes for 314 yards and three long touchdowns. Tucker Bluml hit Tanner Storrow on a 68 yard pass, Dylan McClain from 48 yards, and a 54 yarder again to Storrow.


James Reynolds intercepted two passes and Jordan Vetter posted one pick. The Tiger ‘D’ allowed less than fifty rushing yards on the night. Sophomore linebacker Wyatt Robinette was in on several tackles while defensive ends Mason Boucher and Anthony Lappe provided a lot of pressure on the quarterback.


Griswold Coach Andy Everett said after the game that the offensive line played as well as they have all year. That group includes Tyler Wyman, Treighton Oakleaf, Joe Schoning, Anthony Lappe, and Cade Pelzer. 


Riverside drops to 0-8 on the year and will play fellow winless MVAO next week. 4-4 Griswold needs to win next week against Tri-Center. If St. Albert loses to Audubon next week then the winner between the Tigers and Trojans in Week 9 will make the playoffs. If St. Albert and Griswold both win there will be a three way tie for the final spot. Tri-Center has the easiest track to get in, a win for them will seal the deal.  We’ll have the Griswold and Tri-Center game on KSOM. 

Williams Wins Hawkeye Ten Girls Title


(Council Bluffs) Atlantic Junior Tiffany Williams captured the girl’s individual title at the Hawkeye Ten Cross Country Meet Thursday afternoon at Iowa Western Community College.


Williams, a two-time state qualifier and 11th ranked in Class 3A won the race in a time of 15:33. Williams continues to show improvement, after finishing fourth her freshmen and sophomore seasons.


"She ran the way she has run all year and competed well," stated Atlantic Head Coach Paul Iekel. "She got out strong and broke a way from a small pack of runners behind her, but she kept pushing and finished strong and won her first conference championship, which was pretty exiting." 


Atlantic tied with Glenwood for fifth in the team race with 143-points. Coach Iekel was pleased with the way they competed.


"I thought the girls competed well," said Iekel. "We finished fifth which was an improvement from last year's seventh place finish." 


The other finishers for the Trojans included; Ashleigh Waltz, 31, Emily Saeugling, 32, Savannah Sorensen, 35, Alexis Brockman, 38, Alyssa Siggins, 43, and Justice Parker, 49.



The Atlantic Boys finished 10th in the meet with 199 points.

Practice Habits Remain Good at Riverside Despite Losing Streak

(Oakland) With only two weeks left in the regular season and a playoff berth mathematically impossible, (0-7) Riverside now focuses on making the most of their final two opportunities to suit up this year. 


Head coach Mitch Rice says they hope to send the seniors off on a good note and teach the younger players how to win a varsity football game. He says the tempo and spirit in practice are still good despite the record.  The Bulldogs average just 9.6 points per game and outside of their 34 point showing against St. Albert, have scored more than twice in a game only one time this season. The team has shuffled the deck late in the year and moved 2nd leading rusher Tucker Bluml to quarterback. Bluml passed for 170 yards in his first start last week, but also threw four interceptions. Brock Bentley sees the bulk of the carries now and leads the team with 320 rushing yards on the season. 


Riverside beat Griswold 22-19 late last season and are no stranger to the Tiger's rushing attack. (3-4) Griswold ranks 6th in the state in rushing yards on the year. Caleb Shaaf is the team's top option at 7.2 yards per carry.


Friday's contest with Griswold marks Riverside's final home game of the year before taking on winless MVAO next week. The Bulldogs are 4-4 in home games under current head coach Mitch Rice.

AHSTW Vikings on the Verge of Securing District's #2 Seed

(Avoca) The AHSTW football team hits Week 8 with a 5-2 overall record and 3-1 district mark. The Vikings next two opponents have combined for just two wins all year. 
AHSTW’s 31-13 win over Underwood last week gave them sole possession of 2nd place in the district. Headlining the Week 6 win were big plays in all three phases of the game. Lee Whyte raced 82 yards to pay dirt on a kickoff return, Nathan Herbst ran for two scores including a 27-yarder, and Terry Shannon posted a 60-yard pick-six. 
Coach Davis Pattee’s team now focuses on Treynor this week. The Cardinals are just 1-6 on the year, but their lone victory came just last week and it came in impressive fashion over West Monona, 62-20. 
Treynor averaged just over 10 points per game through the first six weeks before exploding for 62 points on more than 450 yards of offense a week ago.  Kyle Young led Treynor last week with over 230 rushing yards. Coach Pattee says Young is one of several players his defense needs to be able to slow down. 
That Viking 'D' is giving up just under 13 points per game in their five wins this year. Dylan Robinson, Dustin Engel, and Zach Hagadon all have at least 40 tackles on the year. Hagadon has picked up half of his season total in the last two weeks alone including a team high 12 stops last week.
AHSTW will have the benefit of their home field where they haven’t lost a home district game since October 7th, 2011. 

Atlantic at Winterset for a Class 3A District Football Game Friday Night

(Dunlap) The old saying “It’s not how you start it’s how you finish” certainly holds true for Boyer Valley who could go a long way in locking up a District Championship Friday with a win over a talented Exira-EHK football team.  The Bulldogs started off the season with two losses, East Mills in week one and Fremont-Mills in week two. Since then they have won five straight district games and find themselves on top of the heap with a 5-0 record with two league games to go.

Coach Petersen admits he knew this team had the potential to be very good when the season started but a district title or expectations like that is something that his staff never talks about. He says they focus on the process of getting better every day and if you do the little things good things will happen in the end.

Petersen says he knows the Spartans are going to be ready to play football this after having several days to prepare without Drew Peppers who was injured early in last Friday’s loss at home against Newell - Fonda

Exira EHK and Boyer Valley Square off Friday in Key District Game

(Exira) (6-1)Exira/EHK will be without their top player when they take on (5-2) and league leading Boyer Valley Friday night. Spartan Quarterback and all-state defensive back Drew Peppers was sidelined with a leg injury early in the game against Newell-Fonda last Friday night. The Spartans came up short 54-15. The loss places them one game behind Boyer Valley.


Peppers led the team in rushing with nearly 1450-yards, passed for around 500 more, scored 164-points and led the team in tackles with just under 50.


Exira/EHK Head Coach Tom Petersen says the loss of Drew Peppers is very unfortunate.

Roller Coaster Season Continues for Stanton

(Stanton) It's been a season of highs and lows for Stanton this year. The Vikings lost their first two games, won their next three in impressive fashion, and now have lost two in a row again entering Week 8. 


Stanton will take on Lenox in a matchup that will more likely than not determine the league's #3 seed. CAM could also factor into the mix as all three teams have identical district records with two weeks left. 


The teams that Stanton has lost to have a combined record of 25-3, but coach Jeff Grebin says his squad didn't execute well the last two weeks. They've also been saddled by injuries which has hampered the team's ability to produce a good scout team in practice.


Quarterback David Sorenson's strong season continues, the junior ranks 5th in the state in passing yards and 6th in the state in passing touchdowns. Opposing defenses have started keying on top target Brady Johnson, but the junior is still in the top three in the state in receptions, yards, and touchdowns.

CAM's Slim Playoff Hopes Still Alive

(Anita) For the first time all season the CAM football team has won back to back games. They’ll need to win two more in a row to solidify a playoff spot. CAM followed up their Week 6 win over Nishnabotna with a 52-42 win against East Mills last week. 


CAM coach Joe Wollum says the defense has been the difference in his team’s last two games. He's been especially happy with the way the defense has stopped the run. East Mills was held to just 78 rushing yards last week.  Keegan Hosfelt has shifted to middle linebacker allowing Austin Williamson to move to outside linebacker. Also shifting to outside linebacker has been Drew Ticknor who swapped spots with Jared McKee who moves to safety. The combination has worked as the team held Nishnabotna to just 16 points and then intercepted two passes against East Mills including a Trace Ticknor pick-six, plus D. Ticknor scooped a fumble up and ran it back 20 yards for a touchdown. 


Offensive highlights last week included Drew Ticknor completing 9 of his 18 attempts for 155 yards and two scores. Both of his TD tosses went to Jared McKee who grabbed a total of 5 balls for 85 yards. Connor Bell was on the receiving end of three D. Ticknor passes for 68 yards, an average of 22.7 yards per catch. Austin Williamson led a balanced rushing attack with 23 carries for 96 yards and three touchdowns. D. Ticknor ran for 83 and T. Ticknor 71 yards, giving CAM a total of 250 on the ground.  


CAM now travels to undefeated and top five ranked Fremont-Mills, but coach Wollum says his team isn’t intimidated by anybody. The Cougars lost 45-34 at Fremont-Mills last year, giving them the confidence to compete with a team that's only lost two district games in the last four years. 


If CAM wins out they will make the playoffs. If they go 1-1 over the next two weeks they would still have a chance to get in, but would need either Stanton or Lenox to lose their final two games. CAM plays Lenox in Week 9. Stanton and Lenox meet this week. Stanton plays Nishnabotna in Week 9.

'Win and You're In' For Adair-Casey in Week 8

(Adair) Adair-Casey and East Union come into their Week 8 contest with identical records overall (4-3) and in the district (3-2). The winner will claim at least the number four seed in the playoffs with a chance to move up even higher depending on how Guthrie Center fairs down the stretch. 


In comparing scores of the games with their four common opponents, both teams have lost big against Glidden-Ralston and won fairly comfortably against Ankeny Christian Academy, Murray, and NE Hamilton. Both teams like to run the football and are tied in rushing touchdowns this season with 28 each. 


Bomber coach Chris Bireline admits the size of East Union is a concern. The team's three losses (to CAM, Glidden-Ralston, and Coon Rapids-Bayard) have been to teams with good size on the line, in the back field, or both. 


Adair-Casey overcame a slow start to win big over Ankeny Christian Academy last week. The Bombers 57-13 victory was highlighted by seniors Charlie Terry and Emmitt Wheatly each topping 100 yards rushing. When that duo combines for over 200 rushing yards the team is undefeated. When they are held under 200 yards the team is winless. 


The Bomber defense also shined in their Week 7 win over ACA with four turnovers forced. Blake Leonard, Terry, and Wheatley all had interceptions while sophomore Josh Reed fell on a fumble. Wheatley also posted a 75 yard kickoff return for a score to add to his big night.


In addition to the pivotal matchup with East Union this week, Adair-Casey will play Guthrie Center next week. Two of these three teams will make the playoffs. Adair-Casey is shooting for their 15th playoff appearance in school history while East Union has qualified for the postseason just twice, in 2008 and 2009.


Adair-Casey coach Chris Bireline Interview 


Momentum Builds for Audubon Football Team

(Audubon) Last season the Audubon Wheelers stormed back from an 0-2 start to win their final seven regular season games. That momentum carried over into the playoffs where they advanced not only past the first round of the playoffs, but run all the way to the quartefinals where they lost to AHST.  This year the team rides a three game win streak and enters Week 8 and Week 9 with a better record than each of their upcoming opponents. 


The Wheelers three wins in succession have come against MVAO, Riverside, and Westwood. The Westwood win stands out as the Wheelers knocked the Rebels from the ranks of the unbeaten. Aiding the cause in their 32-20 win over Westwood last week were the four turnovers they forced. Jake Mulford returned an interception 32 yards while Cliff Nelsen, Elijah Zaiger, and Matthew Smith-Petersen all recovered fumbles. Smith-Petersen has been a major leader for the defensive unit with a district leading 82.5 tackles for the season. He ranks 2nd in the state in Class A in that category.


Audubon coach Sean Birks describes Week 8 opponent Tri-Center as a big and physical team with some good athletes that they like to try to get to the outside. Tri-Center comes in at 4-3 overall and they have their sights set on the district's #4 playoff seed. Audubon appears in line for the #2 spot thanks to their head to head advantage with Westwood.


A big bonus for Audubon over the course of their three game win streak is the defense and special teams unit finding the end zone. Jake Mulford had a 59 yard punt return against MVAO, Tyler Reibhoff recorded a pick-six and Mitchell Nelsen returned a punt 50 yards against Riverside, and Mulford ran a kickoff back 86 yards last week. 

Mulford has stepped up in a big way for the Wheelers throughout the season. In addition to his big plays on special teams, he has averaged 128 rushing yards per game. That's 10 yards per game better than his predecessor Riley Jones averaged last season.


Audubon coach Sean Birks Interview 

Tri-Center Controls Own Playoff Fate

(Neola) Two wins to close out the year would put the Tri-Center football team in the playoffs for the third time in the last four years. The Trojans final two games will be against Audubon in Week 8 and Griswold in Week 9. This Friday's contest will air on KSOM2 while next week's big game will air on KSOM. 


Coach John Tiarks admits he's impressed with Audubon's leading rushers Trevor Smith and Jake Mulford. Wheeler leading tackler Matthew Smith-Peterson also caught Tiarks eye on tape. Audubon is coming off of an impressive win over previously unbeated Westwood last week.


The Trojans are coming off of a strong showing as well. They beat Riverside in Week 7 with the defense posted their first shutout of the year in a 35-0 win over the Bulldogs.  Dillon Manhart ran for a season high 208 yards and 3 scores in the win. He also led the team in tackles. The defense forced seven turnovers led by Nick Schnitker intercepting two passes and Adam McDermott recovering two fumbles. 


Tri-Center right now holds down the number four spot in the district behind Logan-Magnolia, Audubon, and Westwood. Griswold and St. Albert are giving chase with each team being one game back of Tri-Center. St. Albert still has to match up with Westwood and Audubon while Griswold travels to Riverside this Friday night before a key Week 9 matchup at home against Tri-Center. 


Tri-Center has six playoff qualifications in school history. Their postseason trips have come in 1985, 1990, 1996, 1997, 2011, and 2012.

(Audubon) The semi-finals of the Western Iowa Conference volleyball tournament will be held today in Audubon. Last night's quarterfinals provided several competetive matches with seeds 1 through 4 all coming out on top.

Griswold won a back and forth contest with Missouri Valley to stay alive. The Tigers took the match in five sets, 25-22, 26-24, 23-25, 19-25, 15-12. They improve to 19-7 on the year and will get a rematch against IKM-Manning after losing 3-1 to the Wolves in Griswold last week. 


Griswold volleyball coach Jody Rossell Interview


Number two seed Treynor swept Audubon 25-14, 25-21, and 25-15. The Cardinals got 10 kills and 11 digs from Madison Paulsen. Summer Goss served five aces in the win. Treynor, now 22-8, will play Tri-Center in the semi-finals. It will be the team's third meeting agaiknst Tri-Center this season and Treynor has won the first two. 


Tri-Center caps off the list of semi-finalists thanks to their five set win over Underwood. The Trojans improved to 18-8 following the back and forth contest. They won the 5th and decisive set 18-16. Kirsten Lehan had a big night with 15 kills and 22 digs. A pair of sophomores also stood out with Allison Eikenberry having 11 kills and 17/18 serving with 2 aces, plus Tori Masker dished out 36 assists and 10 digs. 


The Semi-Finals will get underway at 6:00 in Audubon Tuesday. The first match is IKM-Manning against Griswold with Treynor and Tri-Center to follow. The consolation and championship matches will be held Thursday in Audubon.

Glenwood Out of Playoff Hunt but Still Has Plenty to Play For

(Glenwood) It's been a frustrating year for the Glenwood Rams with just two wins overall on the season and a winless district slate. Glenwood was mathematically elimated from playoff contention with their 45-28 loss to ADM in Week 7. 


Glenwood has been on the cusp of wins against Thomas Jefferson, Atlantic, and Winterset, but came up empty in all three games. Two of them were decided by one point, while the Winterset contest came down to a goal line stand. Outside of those three tough losses, the team has been defeated by ADM and Creston while topping Denison-Schleswig and Red Oak. 


Coach Cory Faust admits he's curious to see how his team responds this week now that they know they can't make the playoffs. Even without the playoffs though the team has two main motivating factors to play well. They want to send the group of 16 seniors out on a good note and they also want to gain some momentum into what could be a very strong 2015 season. 


The Rams will have nearly all of their skill positions players returning next year. Brogan Weddum's team leading 516 rushing yards, will be among the biggest losses offensively. Defensively they will graduate three of their top five tacklers, but the number one and number two tacklers on the team will both be back.


Coach Cory Faust said it best when he commented, "These returning players junior and senior seasons are being defined right now by the player's effort to finish and continuously improve."

AHSTW Boys Eye Top Three Finish at Conference Meet

(Audubon) The Western Iowa Conference Cross Country Meet will be held Tuesday in Audubon. The meet was postponed from Monday due to the wet weather.

Griswold Can Take Step Towards the Playoffs With Win Friday

(Griswold) The 3-4 Griswold Tigers are in what appears to be a three team race for the final playoff spot in Class A District 1. They take on a Riverside team this Friday night that’s looking for their first win of the season.


Tri-Center is 3-2 in the district standings while St. Albert and Griswold are both 2-3. Griswold already holds the head to head advantage over St. Albert, and will play Tri-Center next week. Tri-Center plays Audubon this week before the big showdown with Griswold in Week 9. St. Albert has Audubon and Westwood remaining on their schedule. The Wheelers and Rebels have one district loss each.


Griswold’s four losses have been to teams with a combined record of 24-4. That includes a 48-16 loss to Logan-Magnolia last week. The Tigers are one of only two teams to hang within 35 of Lo-Ma (Audubon is the other). The Tigers managed 160 rushing yards against the tough Panther defense. Their 16 points were the most Logan-Magnolia had given up all season. Derek Kirchhoff scored on a kickoff return and Hadley Ogg broke loose on a 40 yard TD run.


Sophomore linebacker Wyatt Robinette was all over the field defensively with 11 solo tackles and 8 tackle assists. Robinette leads the team with 74 tackles in his first year as a starter. 


Griswold ranks 6th in the state in rushing yardage this season with 2,200 yards on the ground. The average 6.6 yards per carry as a team. Caleb Schaaf leads the way with an average of 142 yards per game and 10 rushing touchdowns. The senior hass topped 300 yards in a game three times this season. 


Griswold's meeting with Riverside on Friday night will air on KSOM with pregame coverage starting at 5:30 with our 'In the Huddle' program.
