BATTLE OF UNBEATENS FRIDAY IN EXIRA


(Exira) When it comes to marquee matchups in 8-Player football this Friday night, #1 ranked Exira-EHK will be in the spotlight for the 2nd straight week. This time it will Coon Rapids-Bayar's turn to try to knock off the Spartans.

 

Exira-EHK stayed perfect last week by downing 5th ranked Glidden-Ralston 47-7. Coon Rapids-Bayard also passed a big test in a big way as well by beating a previously ranked West Harrison 55-7.

 

Coon Rapids-Bayard has scored at least 40 points in all six wins, while Exira-EHK has tallied 36 or more each Friday night this season.

 

Coach Kesselring and the Crusaders will have a very business like approach to Friday night’s game saying it's just another game in their one game at a time approach. Both teams are undefeated and the winner will be the odds on favorite for the district championship.

 

Coon Rapids-Bayard will be keying on Spartan quarterback Drew Peppers. Peppers went for 186 yards on 24 carries in a Spartan 63-35 win over CR-B last year. Both teams run the football well, with CR-B ranking 7th in the state in rushing yardage led by Sophomore Zach Evans with 776 yards and 17 TD's.  

 

Coach Kesselring adds that the game will likely be won by whichever team controls the line of scrimmage and gets the most key defensive stops.

MONARCHS HOLD OFF TROJANS 21-14


(Atlantic) Denison/Schleswig took advantage of two Trojan turnovers early and jump out to a 14-0 first half lead. The Monarch's would go on to win 21-14 in a Class 3A non-district high school football game Friday night.

 

The Monarchs turned a Trojan fumble into a touchdown with 3:30 left in the first quarter when Mitchell Kinsey hit Blake Beymer on a 20-yard strike to grab a 7-0 lead. Less than two minutes later a high snap on a punt attempt pinned Atlantic’s defense back to their own fifteen yard line. Jade Pauley punched it in from three-yards out to extend their lead to 14-0.

 

The Trojans fought back and closed the gap to 14-7 in the middle of the second quarter when Joey Walker scored from one yard out, and that is how the half would end.

 

Denison/Schleswig struck first in the second half  on Mitchell Kinsey’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Destry Beeck. After Leonardo Luna's  third PAT the Monarch’s led 21-7.

 

Atlantic came right back. Joey Walker hit Sam Renaud on a pass over the middle to the Monarch one yard line. Walker finished the drive with a one-yard plunge to close the gap to 21-14 with 3:55 left.

 

The Monarch’s ensuing drive stalled at mid field and they punted the football to the Trojan’s own 14-yard line. Atlantic scratched and clawed their way inside the Monarch 20, but penalties and a big defensive play by Monarch Linebacker Jade Pauley on fourth down ended the Trojans hopes.

 

Atlantic piled up 317 total yards of total offense to the Monarch’s 218.

 

Atlantic falls to 1-5, the Monarchs go to 1-5 on the season.

CAM IN NEED OF A WIN AS THEY OPPOSE ESSEX/SOUTH PAGE


(Anita) At 1-4 on the season it's nearing do or die time for the CAM Cougar football team. The Cougars, it appears will need to go at least 4-1 the rest of the way to qualify for postseason play in 2013.

 

CAM head coach Joe Wollum says the team is starting to get somewhat discouraged about the slow start, but points to the fact that the record of the four teams they have lost to is a combined 17-2. Last week's loss for CAM came to Southwest Valley via a 59-20 final score. Coach Wollum says the defense played well for a half, but needs to put together a full game.

 

Essex/South Page comes in with an 0-4 record and are in a similar boat as the Cougars in terms of the strength of schedule. Coach Wollum refers to them as a big team that has a lot of players out.

 

Despite the slow start to the season for CAM in the win/loss department, the teams has had several bright spots offensively. Trace Ticknor is in the top five in the state in passing yardage while Dylan Amdor is one of the state's leaders in receiving yardage.

IKM-MANNING TRIES TO BOUNCE BACK ON THE ROAD


(Manning) IKM-Manning will load up the bus tomorrow night for a one hour and forty-five minute tirp to Albert City to take on Sioux Central, Sioux Rapids. Both teams go into the game win an overall record of 2-2.

 

IKM-Manning head coach Tom Casey says his defense will see a run heavy approach. Sioux Central comes into the game with a district leading 1,164 yards on the ground. That's an average of 291 yards per game. Coach Casey says a big key will be matching the intensity of Sioux Central from start to finish. Slow starts have doomed IKM-Manning in losses to OA-BCIG and last week to Manson-NW Webster. Another key according to coach Casey will be getting third down and fourth down stops to allow the offense to get back on the field.

 

The Wolves this season have been led in rushing by Sam Wegner with 399 yards on the year. He is averaging 6.7 yards per carry. Sophomore Jacob Thraen leads the defense with an impressive 62 tackles. Not far behind is Cody Eischeid with 58 stops.

GLIDDEN-RALSTON BOASTS A TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER AND SOLID RUNNING GAME GOING INTO GAME WITH EXIRA/EHK


(Glidden) When you look at this match-up between Glidden-Ralston and Exira/EHK on paper the teams appear to have similar styles… they both like to run the ball. However, Wildcat Head Coach Kreg Lensch says the two teams are really quite different.

 

Coach Lensch says Coach Petersen is spreading out the offense more this year and allowing Quarterback Drew Peppers to move around in space a little more than last year. “Obviously something his is very good at,” said Lensch, adding that his team continues to run a double tide end set and like a more power style of offense. 

 

Coach Lensch admits Dan Erst, (43-tackles, 22-solos), is very important to the defense, however if the Spartans start to run away from him the other side had better be ready.

 

Offensively, Jake Bruggeman leads the team in rushing with 389-yards on 68-carries and 6-catches for 155-yards and nine touchdowns.  Adam Ewold, who leads the team in tackles, has scored six touchdowns, all are rushing touchdowns.

 

The last time these two teams met a field goal separated the two. So far this season Spartan Kicker Zach Kliefoth has booted one field goal for 32-yards in his only attempt. Evan Arellano is also one-for-one for 19-yards.

KSOM GAME OF THE WEEK ADAIR-CASEY HOSTS MURRAY


(Adair) Adair-Casey and Murray get together Friday night for a much awaited football matchup. The Mustangs of Murray have ended the season of the Adair-Casey Bombers two years in a row in the quarterfinals.

 

Murray comes into the matchup at 4-1, their only loss this year was back in Week 0 to 5th ranked Glidden-Ralston. Murray head coach Keith Shields admits this is a big contest for his team for several reasons. Among those reasons is a chance to sit in the driver's seat for the district title. Murray is led by Andrew Rider who is closing in on some national marks for return touchdowns. Rider has picked off five passes and returned four of them for scores. He's also returned two punts and one kickoff for touchdowns.

Adair-Casey is 5-0 and ranked #3 in the state by the DM Register. Bomber head man Wade Anderson says what makes this a big game from his perspective is simply the fact that its the game on the schedule for this week. Adair-Casey is averaging a state best 70.6 (82 and 79 points the last two weeks) points per game with a state leading 1,805 rushing yards (361 per game.) All time leading rusher Clayton Plowman is at the center of all that. The senior is on pace to become just the third player in 8-man history with back to back 2,000 yard rushing seasons.

These two teams have provided several exciting shootouts over the past two seasons. In the past two seasons Murray has a 3-1 record against Adair-Casey. They’ve outscored the Bombers 234-203 in that span.

KSOM2 GAME OF THE WEEK; RIVERSIDE AT UNDERWOOD


(Underwood) This game features two teams that enter this mid season contest with identical records of 2-2 (1-1 in district play). Both teams had big wins in week 1 then fell short in weeks 2 & 3, before pulling off a much needed victory last week to avoid going 0-2 in the district.

 

Riverside needed a two point conversion to down Audubon in overtime on opening night, but then struggled offensively and committed 5 combined turnovers in losses to Shenandoah and East Mills. Last week the Bulldogs piled up 318 yards and forced 4 turnovers in a 21-20 come from behind win over Lo-Ma.

 

Underwood stopped class 1A Treynor in week 1 before falling to Tri-Center and Griswold in weeks 2 & 3. Lack of offense and mistakes plagued the Eagles. They turned the ball over 4 times against Tri-Center and 6 more in district play versus Griswold. Last week Underwood played mistake free football while piling up 465 yards of offense as they rolled past West Monona 52-14.

 

This is a critical game for both teams as they try to avoid a second district loss and stay in the playoff hunt in this black and blue district of Class A. Riverside is averaging 229 yards and 12.25 points per game. Underwood comes in averaging 298 yards of

offense and 26.5 points.

 

Riverside head man Mitch Rice stated that last weeks win over Lo-Ma was a huge confidence boost for his team. He said that in order for the Dawgs to have success Friday night they need to execute offensively the way they did in the second half last week. Rice said that if the defense can shut down the run and perhaps force a turnover or two that he liked their chances against Underwood.

Underwood head coach Loren Lintner said that the key to the Eagles being successful is for them to control the line of scrimmage and take care of the football. Lintner stated that he is not concerned about how many yards they may surrender but how the defense plays in the Red Zone.

HARLAN RUNNINGBACK NATE GETTY'S EXPECTED TO PLAY FRIDAY AGAINST GLENWOOD


(Harlan) Harlan welcomes back running back Nate Getty’s after missing last weeks game with an injury against Carroll. Cyclone Head Coach Curt Bladt calls Getty’s probable.

 

The 6’0, 160-pound senior Tailback has rushed for 350-yards in three games and is averaging 6.6 yards a carry.

 

The Cyclones suffered the first loss of the season to Carroll during Gettys’ absence. Coach Bladt says his ballclub learned a lot from the loss to the Tigers.

 

“Practices have been good they didn’t like getting beat and nobody does. But you have to pick up the pieces and put them back together and see if you can get better the next week,” said Bladt.  

 

Bladt says Glenwood will be a tough and talented opponent.

 

The Rams are led offensively by 6’5, 191-pound senior Quarterback Corey Bertini. Bertini is 30-53 passing for 408 yards and three touchdowns. What maybe even more impressive he has not thrown and interception. He has also carried the ball 45 times for 174 yards. Spencer Smith leads the team in rushing with 65-carries for 582 yards and 8-touchdowns. Smith is tough to bring down. He is averages 9.0 yards a carry.

GLENWOOD HOSTS HARLAN FRIDAY NIGHT


(Glenwood) Glenwood hosts #8 Harlan Friday night in a Class 3A District One football game. The Rams are coming off of a 31-14 win over Perry. The Cyclones dropped a non-district contest to Carroll last week 14-7.

 

Glenwood Head Coach Corey Faust took over the program a year ago and he is pleased with his team’s consistency.

 

When it comes to Harlan, Coach Faust says it is hard to find a weakness.

 

Glenwood’s running game has been solid. The Rams currently lead the league in rushing with 1202-yards, averaging 6.9 yards per carry. Harlan has a balanced attack on offense. They are currently ranked third in the district in rushing yards with 640 and 4.3 yards per rushing play, and fourth in passing yardage with 630. Glenwood is fifth in receiving with 444-yards.

GLIDDEN-RALSTON HOSTS EXIRA/EHK IN A CLASSIC MATCHUP FRIDAY NIGHT


(Glidden) Exira-EHK travels to Glidden-Ralston this Friday night in a key matchup in 8-Player district 7.

 

Both teams are 4-0 and similar in style. They like to run the football. The Spartans have executed 177-running plays to-date and gained 1303 yards compared to 40-passing attempts. Glidden-Ralston has rushed the ball 167-times for 840-yards, compared to 51 passing attempts.

 

Spartan Head Coach Tom Petersen admits this will be their toughest task of the year. He says defending against Glidden-Ralston’s talented defensive end Dan Erst will be a challenge and they will have to know where he is at all times.

 

The last time these two matched up was in the quarterfinals of play-offs a year ago. The Spartans won by a field goal, 39-36.

 

Kick-Off is set for 7:00 p.m. at Glidden-Ralston.

HOMECOMING WEEK FOR DISTRICT LEADING AUDUBON WHEELERS


(Audubon) The Audubon football team will try to keep the momentum of back to back big wins going into their homecoming game this Friday night against Bedford.

 

Audubon co-head coach Dustin Christiansen tells KSOM/KS95.7 sports the two wins were huge for motivation. The Wheelers now have a good chance to try and secure a home playoff game.

 

One concern among the coaching staff as they hit Week 5 of the season is a letdown against this week's opponent, 1-3 Bedford. 


Coach Christiansen says schematically Bedford will be similar to the AHST team that beat Audubon 34-14 in Week 2.

The 2-0 district start has Audubon is tied atop the district standings with Earlham. Bedford comes into this game at 1-3 overall and 1-1 in the district.

MERRILL FIELD IN HARLAN MAY SOON HAVE A NEW LOOK


(Harlan) Fundraising efforts for a renovation project at Merrill Field in Harlan have reached a point where the school district is ramping up their plans.

 

Harlan Community Schools Superintendent Justin Wagner says the fundraising for the renovations are very near to their goal.

 

“We’ve been able to raise $1.22 Million of the $1.5 (Million) needed to basically renovate the Merrill Field Complex.”

 

The next step is today’s meeting of the Education Foundation Board to determine the plan of attack going forward. The project entails several improvements to Merrill Field including,

 

“Implementation of field turf, new track, visiting and home side bleachers, a new entrance, a video scoreboard which is state of the art, an FAT timing system for track meets.”

 

New lighting is also included in the project. Until the full $1.5 million is raised fundraising efforts will continues. Wagner is proud to say no tax payer money will go into the project.

 

“The community has been extremely supportive and it’s unique. We approached it this way that we did a fundraiser. No tax payer dollars are going into this in terms of using tax dollars to make this happens. These are some ideas that we want to really generate some excitement and some interest and if people support it then they’ll donate. And they have, and so we are really appreciative of that.”

 

The district continues to seek bids for the project originally estimated at $1.5 million.

ALL TIME BEST: ADAIR-CASEY SENIOR BREAKS 8-MAN RUSHING MARK


 

(Adair) Clayton Plowman needed 60 yards going into Friday night's game with Mormon Trail to break the all-time career rushing yardage record for 8-player football. He picked up the needed yardage on the Bombers second offensive possession with a run of over 40 yards. Plowman breaks the mark of Tyler Tonderum of Armstong-Ringstead whose previous record stood at 6,389. Plowman talked with KSOM/KS95.7 Sports when the Bombers arrived home from their 79-7 win at Mormon Trail. Here's what the new record holder had to say....

LEWIS CENTRAL ROLLS PAST ATLANTIC


(Atlantic) Lewis Central piled up 362 total yards of offense en-route to a 42-0 win over Atlantic in Class 3A, District one football action Friday night. The Titans defense was relentless holding Atlantic to just 51-yards of total offense.

 

Lewis Central scored three first half touchdowns, two by air and one on the ground. Junior Quarterback Austin Simmons fired touchdown passes to Caleb Shudak for 16 and Lincoln Rodenberg for 24-yards. Simmons also scored on a 5-yard run. The Titans converted on one of three extra points to take a 19-0 halftime lead.

 

The Titans picked up where they left off in the second half with four straight third quarter scores. Caleb Shudak scored on an 11-yard run, Ryan Shiedle’s 10-yard jaunt. Lucas Sutherland’s one-yard plunge and Chris Thomas’ sack in the end zone for a safety added up to 42-points and a Titan Victory.

 

Lewis Central is now 1-0 in District play and 1-3 overall. Atlantic falls to 1-3 on the season.

AHST REMAINS UNBEATEN WITH HARD FOUGHT WIN OVER GRISWOLD


(Avoca) AHST outlasted Griswold in a game that featured five lead changes and several explosive plays. The Vikings used two Griswold turnovers in the second half to stay undefeated with a 31-21 triumph.

 

Griswold struck first, in fact it took just two offensive plays for the Tigers to take the lead. Caleb Schaaf carried the ball 74 yards for a score less than one minute into the contest to give AHST a 6-0 advantage. AHST struck late in the first quarter when Lee Whyte hauled in a 28 yard pass from Nathan Herbst. Steven Jacobsen's extra point gave AHST their first lead of the game. Griswold didn't take long to answer back as Schaaf scored on a 59 yard touchdown run just 45 seconds later. Schaaf posted 145 yards and 2 TD's on the ground in the first half alone. His second TD run gave Griswold a 14-7 lead, but it was quickly erased. On AHSt's first offensive play of the next possession, Nathan Herbst ran a quarterback draw and broke it down the right sideline for a 62 yard score to even the game at 14 all, which was where the score stood at halftime. 

 

AHST scored first in the 2nd half. Griswold drove deep into Viking territory, but Herbst stepped up defensively and intercepted a pass (his 4th of the year). Herbst's return put AHST in scoring position and a costly Griswold penalty set up a 21 yard field goal which was knocked through by Jacobsen. The boot gave AHST the lead at 21-17, but the lead changed hands early in the fourth quarter when Tyler Muhlbauer ripped off a powerful touchdown run from 20 yards out. Mulhbauer's score put Griswold on top 21-17 with 10:45 remaining. The Tigers hung onto the lead until the 3:26 mark when AHST senior Austin Fink capped off a long scoring drive with a nine yard TD run. Griswold had just over three minutes left to try and mount a comeback, but fumbled a shotgun snap and turned it over with Drew Young recovering the fumble. AHST put the icing on the cake with a Kyle Bauerkemper five yard run with 1:10 remaining to go up 31-21.

 

AHST improves to 4-0 with the win. They'll play on the road at West Monona next week. Griswold drops to 2-2 and faces Westwood next week in Sloan.

CARROLL DEFENSE LEADS TIGERS TO WIN OVER HARLAN


(Harlan) The battle at Merrill Field was as advertised when Carroll High defeated Harlan Community 14-7 in Class 3A play. Both defenses lived up to their billing but the Tigers were able to turn the Cyclones away four times inside their own 25 yard line.

 

Harlan won the field position game in the 1st quarter pinning Carroll back deep in their own end on three possessions. The Cyclones mounted a drive at the start of the 2nd quarter that stalled at the Tiger 23 and a 40 yard field goal attempt sailed wide left. Carroll moved 80 yards down the field and put 6 points on the board on a 4 yard run by Anthony Beyerink. The PAT was good and Carroll lead 7-0 with 7:10 left before the half. The Tigers then picked off an Adam Juhl pass at their own 43 yard line. They then drove 57 yards capped off by a 29 yard touchdown toss from Addison Ross to Isaac Riesselman and the PAT made it 14-0 with 2:49 remaining in the half.

 

The second half was more defense by both teams but the Tiger defense came up with the big play when they needed it. Harlan had a 3rd and goal at the Carroll 1 with 9:30 left in the game but the handoff to the back was mishandled and Carroll recovered in the end zone. Harlan’s lone score came on a 3 yard run by Juhl with 5:54 remaining in the game.

 

Carroll’s Anthony Beyerink rambled for 174 yards on 24 carries and 1 TD. The Tigers ground out 293 total yards (243 on the ground on 41 carries and 50 yards thru the air). They did have 2 turnovers on two muffed punt returns but was able to stifle the Cyclones.

Harlan managed just 158 total yards of offense after averaging 371 yards per game in the previous three. The Cyclones had only 75 yards rushing on 32 attempts and just 83 yards passing on 8 of 26. They fumbled once and threw one interception that both ended Cyclone drives.

 

Carroll improves to 3-1 on the year while Harlan falls to 3-1. Both teams return to district play next week when Harlan travels to Glenwood and Carroll will host Storm Lake.

SOUTHWEST VALLEY TRAVELS TO CAM FRIDAY NIGHT


(Anita) (3-1) Southwest Valley is off to an impressive start to the season. The Timberwolves are averaging 49-points per game offensively. They rebounded nicely last week with a 56-14 win over Nishnabotna. That win comes off the heels of a heartbreaking 30-26 loss to Sidney two weeks ago.  

 

The Timberwolves have rushed for almost 1,400 yards led by Zach Barton who is averaging 8.3 yards a carry while piling up 500 total rushing yards to date. Coach Bass says the blocking up front has been solid tight end to tight end.

 

Coach Bass said CAM is a team that if you can focus on one or two guys you have a chance.

 

He adds open field tackling will be at a premium this week.

 

Kick-off is set for 7:00 o’clock at Anita.

CAM HOPES TO TURN THINGS AROUND FRIDAY NIGHT


(Anita) The CAM Cougar football team worked hard this week hoping to turn things around this Friday night when they host Southwest Valley. The Cougars have played a tough schedule with losses to Adair-Casey, River Valley, and Fremont-Mills. And it appears tonight’s opponent (3-1) Southwest Valley will provide another big challenge for them.

 

Cougar Head Coach Joe Woolum says they are preparing for a team that is physical and likes to run the football and he says they need to play better defense.

 

Despite, the 1-3 start there have been some positives so far this season.

 

Trace Ticknor has passed for 748-yards and rushed for another 408 and Dylan Amdor has caught 22-passes for 430-yards and 8-touchdowns.

EXIRA/EHK TAKES ON CHARTER-OAK-UTE


(Exira) Exira/EHK’s football program is on a roll  right now. The Spartans are off to a 3-0 start and if you add in the last two seasons up to date, their record is 23-3. On top of that they have won 18-straight regular season games leading into Fridays’ night’s contest against (2-1),  Charter Oak-Ute.

 

Spartan Head Coach Tom Petersen admits success brings stress and a lot of hard work.

 

Coach Petersen agreed that last week his team faced their toughest test yet this season against an undefeated West Harrison team. The #1 rated Spartans breezed through the test with flying colors mounting a 56-21 win.

 

Coach Petersen says the main goal this week is to be physical and force the opposition to become one dimensional on Offense.

ATLANTIC HOSTS L.C. FRIDAY


(Atlantic) The Trojans host Lewis Central this Friday night in a Class 3A District One football game. The (2-1) Trojans are coming off a 28-14 loss to Creston last week.

 

Atlantic Head Football Coach Nick Ross speaks highly of  Lewis Central Quarterback Austin Simmons, at least one player the Trojans will have to key on Friday night.  Simmons has completed 54-percent of his passes to a trio of big receivers including 6’5 190, Senior Kyle Larson, 6’3 215, Tide end, Mitchell Brinkman, and 6-1, 185 pound Sr. Jake Rodgers.

 

Coach Ross was encouraged by the physical play of the Trojans last week despite the 28-14 loss to Creston. Logan Steffens led the defense with 29-tackles, Brendon Holmes, 23, Sam Renaud, 22, and Tyler Christensen had 15-stops. The Trojans have forced 6-turnovers in the first three games. Two picks and four fumble recoveries, and rushed for 135-yards last week against the Panthers.

(Audubon) After an (0-2) start Audubon came up with a big win over Madrid  49-21, last Friday night. Wheeler Co-Head Coach Sean Birks calls the win a big confidence booster.

 

Coach Birks says they were able to get everyone in their positions including, Quarterback Trevor Smith who was full speed for the first time this season. Not mention the return of Offensive Lineman Nathan Hagedorn and Mark Rix.

 

Up next is (2-1), Woodward-Granger. Coach Birks says they represent a different offense than what they have seen all year. Birks says they run the I-formation; they throw more and have an outstanding Quarterback in Cole Ashman, who leads an offense with big play capabilities’.

GRISWOLD VOLLEYBALL TEAM COMES FROM BEHIND IN BIG WIN


(Griswold) After dropping the first two sets to Tri-Center on Tuesday night, the Griswold volleyball team rallied back for a 3-2 win in Neola. Coach Jody Rossell said afterwards she couldn't remember the last time Griswold beat Tri-Center in volleyball, especially at their place.

 

Griswold was competetive in the first set but fell 23-25 and then lost set two 25-17. From there, coach Rossell says she told the team that they had their work cut out for them, but she believed they were still capable of winning the match. They responded in a big way by taking set three 25-20 and continuing the momentum into sets 4 (25-17) and 5 (15-10).

 

The win moves the Tigers to 4-8 overall. They have another big Western Iowa Conference matchup awaiting them on Thursday. Griswold will take on 11-4 Underwood in Griswold tomorrow night.

AHST ATHLETES RUN WELL AT HOME CROSS COUNTRY MEET


(Avoca) The AHST boys cross country team finished third at the meet they hosted Tuesday afternoon while the girls team saw several runners improve on their times. The girls team did not have enough runners to complete a team score.

 

Sami Woodward paced the girls team with a 21st place finish and three spots back was Sophi Kock. Shaila Bird placed 36th followed by Brittany Kay in 50th. For the boys Nathan Pattee led the way placing 10th. Cole Fisher was 16th, Briar Clay 19th, Jay Heiny 20th. Also contributing to the team score were Jacob Petersen (32nd) and Timmy Barr (34th).

 

Coach Erica Kardell says Nathan Pattee's top 10 finish came as no surprise referring to Pattee as a, 'Born Runner'. She says Pattee's goal is to make the state meet this season. Overall the team has improved throughout the year and one of the main goals remaining for the boys team is to get closer to competing with Riverside.

 

AHST will have two meets coming up next week. They will run at Tri-Center on Tuesday and at Harlan on Saturday.

BACK ON WINNING TRACK FOR ADAIR-CASEY VOLLEYBALL


(Adair) Adair-Casey bounced back from their first loss of the season with a three game sweep of rival CAM last night.

 

Before last night's the Bombers had suffered a 3-1 setback to Ar-We-Va last thursday night. Coach Cindy Lundy says there was a big focus on trying to bounce back. They were able to do that by winning 25-10, 25-13, 25-16.

 

The victory over CAM puts Adair-Casey's overall record at 8-1. They have a rematch with Coon Rapids-Bayard coming up next. Adair-Casey defeated Coon Rapids-Bayard 2-1 in the Crusaders home tournament. Coach Lundy says she's expecting Coon Rapids-Bayard to be looking to get back at them when they meet up on Thursday.

HARLAN VOLLEYBALL PASSES KEY CONFERENCE TEST


(Harlan) A battle of Hawkeye Ten Conference volleyball powers went the way of the Harlan Cyclones Tuesday night when they swept Class 3A #3 Kuemper Catholic. Class 4A #1 Harlan appeared to win the first two sets comfortably, 25-16 and 25-15, but then needed to rally to win the third set 27-25.

 

Coach Angie Spangeburg says the back row played as well as they have in her three seasons at Harlan. Players on that back line include Asia Kloewer, Jordyn Moser, Jess Schaben, and Elle Kloewer. Coach Spangenburg also points out the strong play of lone senior Tara Knudsen and continued on by saying Taylor Frederick played well at the net defensively, setter Kenzie Swanson played a smart match, and Jess DuVal served the ball well.

 

The Cyclones improve to 10-2 overall. They remain unbeaten in conference play. Coming up on Thursday night they travel to take on an Atlantic squad still looking for their first win of the season.

STANTON VIQUEEN VOLLEYBALL TEAM SWEEPS ESSEX


(Stanton) The Stanton Viqueens improved to 13-2 with their straight sets win over Essex last night. Set scores were 25-15, 25-7, 25-17.

 

Carmen Subbert led the team with 14 kills and also went 15/15 from the service line. Erin DeKay executed the jump serve to the tune of 8 aces. Coach Jody Druvinga says DeKay's serving will be extremely valuable for her team throughout the season. Coach Druvinga also noted the play of Macy Elwood with 16 assists and Mariah Kammerer who served well and helped out with blocks at the net.

 

Coming up this weekend for the Viqueens is a trip to the Waukee tournament. Coach Druvinga says the team hasn't played Class 4A or 5A competition. She adds, the step up in competition should help get the team out of their comfort zone and make them fight for every point.

KSOM2 GAME OF THE WEEK: HARLAN HOSTS CARROLL


(Harlan) The last time the Carroll Tigers traveled to Merrill Field they did something that no other team has ever done. They defeated the Harlan Cyclones in the opening round of the playoffs last October.

 

When asked if the team was thinking about revenge, Harlan head coach Curt Bladt said it is not a factor. He stated that this game is a non district match up that is a measuring stick for both teams.

 

Carroll is 2-1 on the year. They fell to 2A #1 Kuemper Catholic in week 1, then rolled past Atlantic and Denison-Schleswig. Carroll head coach Dennis McCarten said the defense has been the key early on this season. The Tigers defense has given up only 457 total yards thru the first three weeks of the season, just 219 yards rushing and a mere 238 yards thru the air. They are plus 3 in the turnover department. McCarten said that the big offensive line has done a great job of protecting their quarterback Addison Ross and opening holes for running back Anthony Beyerink. Ross has completed 64.6% of his passes for 588 yards and 7 TD’s. Beyerink has 343 yards rushing for an average of 5.2 yards per carry with 4 touchdowns. Carroll is averaging 33.0 point per game while allowing only 4.6.

Harlan topped Denison-Schleswig in week 1 and cruised past Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln and Perry in weeks 2 and 3. Harlan’s defense has played well in the early going holding opponents to an average of 11 points per game. They have surrendered 360 yards on the ground, just 317 passing and had 6 picks including a pick six in week one. The offense is led by senior quarterback Adam Juhl who has completed 57.8% of his passes for 522 yards and 6 TD’s. Nate Gettys has rambled for 350 yards and 5 scores while averaging 6.6 yards per carry. The Cyclones are averaging 37.0 points per game this season. Coach Bladt said that they are going to need to play field position, limit mistakes and get off the blocks in order to be successful.

We could be in for a classic between two very talented teams that may very well end up meeting in the post season. You can hear the game from Merrill Field on KSOM2 with pregame at 7 pm and kick off at 7:30

IKM-MANNING ENTERS DISTRICT PLAY AT 2-1 OVERALL


(Manning) 2-1 IKM-Manning meets fellow 2-1 Manson-NW Webster this Friday night. The Wolves are off to a 2-1 start thanks to back to back wins against run heavy foes Tri-Center and Logan-Magnolia.

 

Coach Tom Casey says the squad will see a different look, a more pass oriented offense with Manson NW-Webster. They are led by quarterback Alex Bush whose 511 yards rank 10th best in Class 1A. Bush has a good supporting cast according to coach Casey. Casey says the aerial attack is somewhat of a concern because they haven't been tested by that type of an offense yet.

 

Coach Casey lists several players who stepped up in the 28-20 win over Tri-Center last week. Reid Stracke posted 16 tackles on defense with four of them being behind the line of scrimmage. Jacob Thraen posted 19 stops. Leading the team in rushing yardage was Ridge Muhlbauer with 72 yards and 2 TD's. The squad posted a season high of 296 yards offensively.

TYLER TONDERUM STILL RUNNING STRONG


(State) The 8-Player all-time rushing yardage record is in jeopardy of being broken this week.

 

Tyler Tonderum of Armstrong-Ringstead currently holds the record. He ran for 6,389 yards in his career which spanned from 2006-2009. KSOM/KS95.7 Sports caught up with Tonderum this week to talk about the record.

The mark at the time was at 5,416 yards held by Marcus Michaelsen of NE Hamilton, Blairsburg. Tonderum broke the record about midway through the year. He recalls the play in which he broke the record.

Four years removed from the high school playing field, Tonderum is still playing football. After helping lead Armstrong-Ringstead to two runner-up finishes and one state championship, Tonderum elected to attend Southwest Minnesota State, a Division II program. In the team’s season opener he ran for a school record 343 yards on 42 carries.
 

RIVERSIDE MEETS IKM-MANNING IN VOLLEYBALL TONIGHT


(Oakland) Just a few short days after squaring off in the Griswold Volleyball Tournament, Riverside and IKM-Manning will hook up again, this time in a regularly scheduled Western Iowa Conference match.

 

Riverside won that previous matchup 2-0 but Bulldog coach Mandy Reynolds notes both games were very close. She says her team's best match all day at the Griswold Tourney was when they went head-to-head with IKM-Manning. A couple of things she picked up on about IKM-Manning is that they are a very good hitting team and a very good serving team.

 

Riverside is striving this season to finish above the .500 mark. They stand at 2-4 heading into this matchup tonight with another key match coming up on Thursday against AHST. Coach Reynolds says her two middle hitters have been the biggest keys to her team's success so far. The stats agree, as Rachel Novotny leads the team in kills with 35 and Sheyenne Smith is right behind with 33.

ADAIR-CASEY ONE GAME AWAY FROM MUCH AWAITED SHOWDOWN WITH MURRAY


(Adair) Adair-Casey's Week 4 schedule features a lengthy road trip to take on Mormon Trail, Garden Grove.


4-0 Adair-Casey is coming in on the heels of an 82-44 win over Lamoni last Friday night. It was a big district test for the Bombers who earned a passing grade from their head coach Wade Anderson. Coach Anderson says the defense allowed zero points in the second half as Lamoni's two scores both came on kickoff returns.


Clayton Plowman ran for 219 yards in the win leaving him 60 yards shy of the all-time 8-player rushing record. Traeton Jenson also posted a big game going 6/7 passing with 237 yards of total offense and four touchdowns. The Bombers find themselves tied with rival Murray atop the district standings. Those two teams will collide in two weeks, but the first order of business is to focus solely on Mormon Trail.

 

Coach Anderson says Mormon Trail is somewhat similar to Lamoni as far as their offensive scheme. He says Mormon Trail always plays hard and the Bombers can't just show up and expect to win.

RIVERSIDE STUMBLES TO BACK-TO-BACK LOSSES FOLLOWING WEEK 1 WIN


(Oakland) In Class A District 8 football 1-2 Riverside picks up the pieces from a 41-7 loss to East Mills as they prepare to face 2-1 Logan-Magnolia this Friday night.

 

Riverside head coach Mitch Rice says the bright spot from their Week 3 loss against East Mills is that his defense was able to slow down the strong rushing attack of East Mills.

 

That ability to stop the run will need to be present again as Riverside’s Week 4 opponent, Logan-Magnolia, averages 307 rushing yards per game.

 

Riverside will be trying to establish their own running this week after netting just 30 yards on the ground in Week 3. Coach Rice says he’s looking for consistency up front and he’s excited about a change they are making. Backup fullback Brock Bentley shifts to an offensive guard position and Kyle Klindt will shift from guard to tackle.

RUNNING FOR THE RECORD BOOK: ADAIR-CASEY'S PLOWMAN 60 YARDS FROM HISTORY


(Adair) An Adair-Casey Senior will likely run his way to the very top of the record books tonight when the 4-0 Bombers travel to 1-3 Mormon Trail.

 

Adair-Casey four year starting running back Clayton Plowman needs just 60 yards to become the all-time leading rusher in the state’s 14 year history of 8-player football.

 

Plowman’s march towards history got off to great start in his first year of high school competition. As a freshman the speedy running back ran for over 1,500 yards. He would follow that up with nearly 1,700 more yards as a sophomore to give himself a chance to be among the elite by the end of his career. A career best 2,141 yards as a junior made it look like only a matter of time before the record would be his.

 

Needing 967 yards coming into the season, Plowman has averaged 226 yards per game through the first four games of the seaosn to come within striking distance of Armstrong-Ringstead’s Tyler Tonderum’s all-time record. Tonderum’s career mark stands at 6,389 yards, but that will most likely be bumped down to 2nd best after tonight. Here’s Adair-Casey head coach:

Adair-Casey tonight is facing a Mormon Trail defense that has allowed on average 245 rushing yards per game.

RIVALS CAM AND ADAIR-CASEY SET TO COLLIDE ON VOLLEYBALL FLOOR TUESDAY


(Adair) Adair-Casey and CAM will get in a rivalry volleyball clash Tuesday night. The two teams are on the opposite end of the spectrum with 15th ranked Adair-Casey at 7-1 and CAM at 0-6.

 

CAM coach Zeli Rasmussen says her team has been making steps in the right direction. She says the serving has been much improved, and noted the team started to show confidence and teamwork despite their loss to Boyer Valley last week. When it comes to competing with Adair-Casey it all comes down to slowing down the Bombers top two hitters. Danni McCorkel (63) and London Vais (53) lead the team at the net.

 

As far as leaders for CAM, lone senior Alyssa Kragelund tops the charts in kills with 18 while freshman libero Rachel Riker has a team high 42 digs.

HARLAN CROSS COUNTRY RUNNERS HEADING FOR RED OAK


(Red Oak) Tonight's cross country meet at Red Oak will be somewhat of a conference preview with several of the top teams competing at the same site the Hawkeye Ten meet will be held at later this year.

 

Harlan takes their highly regarded girls team down to Red Oak and is expected to compete with Griswold for the title. Coach Doug Renkly says it is a friendly rivalry with Griswold. He notes that two of the Cyclone varsity regulars will be held out of competition for precautionary rest.

 

Harlan's boys team has made a name for themselves early on in the season. They are coming off of a 2nd place finish at Lewis Central Saturday. Chris Brace and Philip Sciranko lead the way with what Coach Renkly calls a very strong supporting cast.

FORMER SPARTANS NOW PLAYING FOOTBALL FOR IWCC


(Council Bluffs) One year after winning a national championship, the Iowa Western football team is at it again. The Reivers are 4-0 on the season after their 25-0 win over North Dakota State College of Science. The bulk of the Iowa Western roster is made up of players from Iowa, including two former Exira-EHK Spartans.

 

Spencer Smith is in his 2nd season at Iowa Western. He was a special team’s player last year and that role has been expanded this season. Iowa Western coach Scott Strohmeier  raves about the effort Smith puts forward. In addition to his solid work on special teams, Smith has two grabs for 42 yards.

 

Also on the roster this season is 2013 Exira-EHK graduate Brady Drees. In his first year with the Rievers. Drees plays on the JV team. It sounds as if Drees will get a good opportunity at the varsity level next year with the Reivers set to graduate all five starters up front.

 

Iowa Western is ranked 3rd in the nation. They play College of DuPage this weekend.

EARLY STRUGGLES CONTINUE FOR GUTHRIE CENTER


(Guthrie Center) Three games into the 2013 football season the Guthrie Center Tigers are averaging just seven points per game. The group has stumbled out to an 0-3 start. Friday's loss to Woodward-Granger (47-7) saw the team be outscored by at least 40 points for the second straight week.

 

Guthrie Center turned the ball over four times in their recent loss while giving up over 200 yards rushing. The Tigers did post a season high in rushing yardage with 114 led by Austin Laabs 77 yards on 16 carries.

 

The silver lining in the 0-3 record is that only one of those contests was a district game. Additionally, the previous three teams on the schedule are a combined 6-3 while the next three teams on the schedule are a combined 2-7.

12 BALL CARRIERS COMBINE FOR NEARLY 500 RUSH YARDS IN LOGAN-MAGNOLIA WIN


(Logan) Logan-Magnolia was an equal opportunity offense in the 47-12 Week 3 win over West Monona.  Four different backs ran for at least 40 yards and five different rushers averaged over 10 yards per carry. The Panthers were by Brady Charbonneau with 110 yards on 13 touches.


The rushing prowess should come as no surprise to football fans around the state.  Logan-Magnolia’s 4,481 yards on the ground last year led Class A by over 500 yards. The Panthers strong start to the season is nothing new either. Logan Magnolia’s senior class has a regular season record over the past three plus seasons of 26-4.
 

2-1 Logan-Magnolia will take on a 1-2 Riverside team in Week 4. Logan-Magnolia in their two wins has outscored the opposition 87-26 meanwhile Riverside, in their two losses has been outscored 65-15.

CARROLL'S DOMINANT DEFENSE CONTINUES IN WEEK THREE VICTORY


(Carroll) Three games into the 2013 football season the Carroll defense has emerged as major strength for the 2-1 Tigers. The defense was on display again in their 46-7 win against Denison-Schleswig on Friday.
 

The team has forced 8 turnovers and is allowing less than five points per game. It’s allowed the team to pick up consecutive wins. The Kuemper Catholic team that Carroll held to only one score is averaging 62.5 points per game in their other two games of the season. They Tigers will be charged with trying to slow down another high powered offense coming up in Week 4. Carroll is set to face a Harlan this week that has hung at least 40 on the board in back-to-back weeks.
 

Offensive highlights from the Denison-Schleswig victory included junior quarterback going 11/14 for 248 yards and three scores. Senior running back Anthony Beyerink carried 27 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns. The Tigers finished with over 450 yards of very balanced offence.
 

Their matchup with Harlan this week will air on KSOM2. It’s a rematch of last year’s first round playoff pairing that saw Carroll win at Harlan 28-7.

TOUGH SCHEDULE CONTINUES TO DOOM CAM, COUGARS DROP TO 1-3


(Anita) Heading into Friday’s matchup with Fremont-Mills, CAM head coach Joe Wollum said the size of Fremont-Mills was what really stood out about the Cougars Week 2 opponent.  Size did in fact loom large in the matchup as 6-2 230 pound running back Spencer Phillips went for 256 yards on 37 attempts. Phillips was big on defense too with 19 tackles. CAM falls to 1-3 on the season with the 34-45 final score.
Trace Ticknor and Dylan Amdor continue to be the main offensive leaders for the Cougars. The duo hooked up on seven of Ticknor’s 12 completions for 131 yards and a TD. Ticknor ended up with 211 yards passing and 68 rushing with four total TD’s. Another popular target of his was Michael Holste with three receptions for 17 yards and one TD. Jumping off the page defensively for the Cougars in the loss was Jordan Bazer. Bazer, a senior who began the season as a reserve, tallied 24 tackles and also added a 64 yard kickoff return touchdown.


The bad news for CAM is that they’ve already lost three games, but the encouraging news is that the combine record of the teams that have defeated the Cougars is 9-1. Additionally, three of CAM’s final five games will be at home.
 

BIG WIN FOR WHEELERS IN WEEK 3 OVER MADRID


(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers broke through in a big way to pick up a win that was significant for several reasons. The 49-21 victory not only gives the team it's first win of the season but at also gives them a 1-0 start in the district standings. It also nearly doubled the team's offensive point production from the first two games combined not to mention the confidence boost of beating a tradition rich program like Madrid.

 

Five takeways helped seal the deal for Audubon on Friday night. Defensive backs Trevor Smith and Colby Rattenborg each picked off a pair of passes. One of Rattenborg's was a pick six as he returned it 65 yards. Chase Peterson also recovered a fumble in the win. Several players got involved offensively with 8 different players getting at least one carry. Trevor Smith and Riley Jones both ended up just shy of 100 yard rushing performances. Jones accounted for 4 rushing touchdowns. Rattenborg and Lucas Smith-Petersen each hauled in touchdown receptions.

 

The win helps put the struggles of an 0-2 start into the rear veiw mirror for now, but a big challenge awaits. Up next is a home contest against last year's district champion Woodward-Granger.

DEFENSE SHINES IN AHST WIN OVER WESTWOOD


(Avoca) Only 8 teams in Class A football remain undefeated throughout the state and one of them is AHST. The 4th ranked Vikings stayed perfect on the young season by toppling Westwood Sloan 24-8 in Week 3.


AHST posted just 166 yards of offense, but prevailed thanks to a stout defensive showing. Westwood, who game in with a five game winning streak, was held to only 84 yards rushing and 33 yards passing. That defensive effort was highlight by Sophomore Tameron McGurren snatching up a fumble and turning it into six points 62 yards later. AHST’s offensive scores came from Kyle Bauerkemper on an 8 yard run and Austin Fink on a 38 yard reception from Nathan Herbst.


3-0 AHST’s next contest will be at home against Griswold this Friday. Griswold is 2-1 and has scored over 40 points in each of the last two weeks. Both teams are 1-0 in the district, the game will air on KSOM.
 

GRISWOLD ROLLS PAST UNDERWOOD


(Griswold) Griswold defeated Underwood 41-7 Friday night in a Class A District 8 football game at Griswold.

 

The Tigers defense controlled the game holding the Eagles to 209 total yards, 113 rushing and 96 through the air. Underwood entered the contest averaging 5.4 yards per carry, but the Tigers defense held them to average of 2.4 yards per carry on the ground.

 

Meanwhile, Griswold's trio of backs rushed for 248 yards on 43 carries. Caleb Schaaf led the charge with 105-yards and two scores and caught a 42-yard touchdown pass from Senior Quarterback Holden Ogg. Kenneth Clary added 93-yards rushing and two touchdowns and Tyler Muhlbauer picked up 50-yards on the ground and piled up 20-tackles on defense.

 

The Tigers led 14-0 after one quarter and 27-0 at the break and extended that lead to 33-0 in the middle of the third on Schaaf's touchdown run. The Tigers followed up with a two point conversion to lead 35-0. At that point the clock would run continously due to the 35-point rule until midway through the fourth quarter  when Underwood got on the board on Cody Kingery's 3 yard touchdown run to leave the final score at 41-7.

 

Griswold is now 2-1, and 1-0 in the district. Underwood falls to 1-2 and 0-1 in district play. The Tigers travels to A-H-S-T next Friday night. Underwood takes to the road at West Monona.

CRESTON DEFEATS ATLANTIC IN DISTRICT FOOTBALL ACTION FRIDAY NIGHT


(Creston) #8 Creston handed Atlantic a 28-14 loss in the inaugural 2013 District One football game for both teams at Creston Friday night.

 

Despite the loss, the Trojans responded with a much better effort than their previous 47-0 week two loss to non-district foe Carroll.  

 

The Panthers scored 14-straight points in the first half with scores coming through the air and on the ground. Quarterback Brandon Phipps hit Jesse Rathe on an 8-yard first quarter touchdown and Trevor Frain punched a 2-yard second quarter run into the end zone to give the Panthers a two touchdown advantage.

 

Atlantic battled back late in the first half when senior running back Jake Dvorak, appearing in the line-up for the first time this season got loose on a 16-yard run to cut the Creston lead to 14-7 at the half. Dvorak ended the night, with 23-carries for 122-yards and a touchdown.

 

The Panthers went back to work early in the third quarter and extended their lead to 21-7 when Frain broke loose on a 60-yard run. But, the Trojans came back within arms length in the fourth quarter. Dvorak motored 27-yards to the Creston five yard line and moments later Trojan QB Joey Walker punched it in from the two to cut the Panther lead to 21-14. But that didn’t last long, the Panthers responded with just over five-minutes to play when Phipps found Gavin Leith in the corner of the end zone to nail down the victory 28-14.

 

Creston extends their record to 3-0 and faces ADM next Friday night. Atlantic falls to 1-2 and will host Lewis Central.

ANOTHER HUGE NIGHT FOR DREW PEPPERS IN SPARTAN WIN


(Exira) One week after running for 205 yards and 5 touchdowns, Exira-EHK junior quarterback Drew Peppers delivered an even bigger performance in a game where Exira-EHK really needed it. Peppers ran for 219 yards and 4 TD's while adding 2 passing touchdowns on 99 yards to lead the Spartans past a previously unbeated West Harrison team that came in averaging over 65 points per game.

 

Peppers first touchdown came on the Spartans first drive of the game. Faced with a 4th and 5 from the ten, the team elected to go through the air and Peppers found Tate Simpson for the score. West Harrison evened the score just over four minutes later when Jake Roden reversed field for 30 yard touchdown run. Exira-EHK reclaimed the lead on a Drew Peppers 16 yard touchdown scramble early in the 2nd quarter and the team never looked back. From their, Peppers would add a pair of 2 yard TD runs plus a 26 yard TD pass to Simpson. A big highlight for the Spartans came early in the 2nd half when Trey Sander ran over, around, and through the West Harrison defense for a 47 yard score.

 

The Hawkeyes did keep the game close most of the way with explosive plays. Tyler Birdsall scored on a 65 yard touchdown run and a 75 yard KO return. The Exira-EHK defense though was able to hold West Harrison well below their offensive average and got a boost from the Spartan offense who dominated the time of possession and kept the West Harrison offense on the sideline for most off the second half.

 

Exira-EHK now goes to 3-0 on the season. The 51 points is a season high for the squad. West Harrison proved they can play with the top teams in the district, but ultimately falls to 3-1.

UPDATED WITH AUDIO: SOUTHWEST VALLEY AGAINST NISHNABOTNA THIS WEEK


(Corning) Southwest Valley returns home in Week 3 to host Nishnabotna. The Timberwolves are coming off of their first loss in program history, a 26-30 loss at Sidney. Southwest Valley gave the Cowboys all they wanted in a battle of previously unbeated teams, but in the end head coach Kent Bass said it was, "A game that obviously could have gone either way.  We had an opportunity and didn't execute."

 

Jordan Stuart led the offense in the loss with 67 passing yards and 133 rushing yards. Stuart found the end zone three times. Zack Barton (81) and Gunnar McCuen (74) combined to add 150 yards on the ground. Barton and Keegan Longabaugh each had 15 tackles to lead the defense.

 

Coming up next is Nishnabotna. The Blue Devils are 0-3 with their most recent loss coming to CAM 78-48. Coach Bass says Nishnabotna has some very good backs who can be dangerous if they have a running lane.

AUDUBON TRIES TO SHAKE OFF SLOW START AT MADRID


(Audubon) After making the playoffs a year ago, not many would have expected the Audubon Wheelers to start off the season at 0-2, especially with the number of starter they have returning on both sides of the ball. That's the case though for the Wheelers who dropped a tight contest in Week 1 against Riverside before losing to Class A #4 ranked AHST.

 

The focus against Madrid as always will be against stopping the run. Madrid has produced 83% of their total yardage through the ground game and all of their offensive touchdowns have been of the rushing variety.

 

Audubon co-head coach Dustin Christiansen says Matt Fett, Nick Andreason, and Dylan Jensen have all been very good against the run this season. Jensen posted a dozen tackles against Madrid last year in a Wheeler 23-40 loss.

KSOM2 MATCHUP FEATURES RUN HEAVY TEAMS GRISWOLD AND UNDERWOOD


(Griswold) Friday’s high school football matchup on KSOM2 features a pair of teams that love to run the football.  Griswold and Underwood have combined to average 310 rushing yards per game through the first two weeks of the season. They’ve also combined to average just under six pass attempts per game.

 

It should be a fast moving contest from Griswold in Week 3 when the Tigers host the Underwood Eagles. Despite Griswold ranking second best in the state in rushing yardage Andy Everett has a long list of things he’d like to see his team do better.

 

He says they need to block better, move their feet better, run harder, and fix some things on defense.

 

Getting off the ball quicker will particularly be a key against a very big Underwood offensive line.

 

Underwood coach Loren Linter knows it’ll take a team effort defensively to stop Griswold’s three pronged rushing attack of Kenneth Clary, Tyler Muhlbauer, and Caleb Schaaf.

 

Underwood's rushing attack is led by Adian McKee and Cody Kingery who have combined for 419 yards.

 

Both teams head into the matchup with a 1-1 record.

TRI-CENTER SPLITS SEASON OPENING VOLLEYBALL MATCHES


(Neola) Tri-Center volleyball season got underway on Tuesday. The Trojans got two matches under their belts in a triangular against Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.

 

Tri-Center’s first match of the season started off on a good note. The Trojans blanked Thomas Jefferson 2-0. Kirsten Lehan led the team with 10 kills in that matchup.

 

Tri-Center followed that up with a loss to Abraham Lincoln. Coach Wedemeyer says the second match was a disappointing performance. All in all coach Wedemeyer says the opening night matchups will help his team in the long run.

 

Tri-Center will take on Audubon tomorrow night. Coach Wedemeyer expects a tough matchup with Audubon, a team is says is improving.

 

Other Western Iowa Conference matchups tonight include Riverside @ Treynor, Griswold against Missouri Valley, AHST hosting Underwood and newcomers IKM-Manning and Logan-Magnolia matching up.

CHASING THE RECORD BOOKS: ADAIR-CASEY'S PLOWMAN 280 YARDS FROM ALL-TIME RECORD


(Adair) Clayton Plowman posted his biggest game of the season last week in Adair-Casey's 68-24 win over East Union. The Senior running back for the Adair-Casey Bombers ran the football 23 for 307 yards and six touchdowns.

 

He now has 6,110 career yards which puts him 280 yards away from breaking the all-time 8-player record held by Armstrong-Ringstead's Tyler Tonderum. He's also tied for third on the all-time touchdown list.

 

The Bombers though will tell you they are much more focused on winning football games over setting records. They've been successful in winning games with a 3-0 start to the year.

 

This week the schedule will bring a fellow unbeaten to Adair for the Bombers homecoming game. 3-0 Lamoni, a returning playoff qualifer, brings back a lot of experience according to Adair-Casey head coach Wade Anderson. Anderson says Lamoni likes to spread the ball around to balance out their offense. He expects them to be a challenger for the district title.

UPDATED WITH AUDIO: TRI-CENTER 1-1 ENTERING WEEK 3 THANKS TO WELLMAN'S BIG NIGHT


(Neola) Through two weeks of the regular season one of the top rushers in the state in Class 1A is Tri-Center's Ben Wellman. Wellman's 379 yards rank 2nd behind only Treynor's Dane Livengood who has 414. Wellman's six touchdown runs are also 2nd best in 1A and his four TD's against Underwood was enough to lead Tri-Center to their first win of the year.

 

The Trojans will have one more non-district game before the push for the playoffs ensues. The final tune up game will come against a 1-1 IKM-Manning team this week. IKM-Manning suffered a season opening loss to OA-BCIG, but bounced back in week two to down Logan-Magnolia. 

 

Tri-Center carries the momentum of Friday's 42-28 win against Underwood into the clash with the Wolves. Wellman carried the ball 30 times for 161 yards in that game and came through on the defensive end with 15 stops. Other big plays for the Trojans last week included Wes Zimmerman's 13 yard TD pass to Nick Schnitker and Austin Hoke's 58 yard interception return for a score.

HARLAN VOLLEYBALL SWEEPS SHENANDOAH


(Harlan) Harlan had little trouble with Shenandoah in the first Hawkeye Ten Conference volleyball match of the 2013 season. The Cyclones came in at 8-2 through their first two tournaments and improved to 9-2 overall with a sweep of the Phillies. Set scores were 25-11, 25-11, and 25-16.

 

Jess Schaben rolled up 19 kills in the match. Her hitting percentage this season is now at .511 her kill total of 129 leads Class 4A. Asia Kloewer posted a team high 13 digs in the win. Harlan served 91.8% (67/73) Ellie Kloewer led the team behind the line serving 16/16 with one ace. Kenzie Swanson's 28 assists gives her 198 on the season, fifth best in the state.

 

Class 4A #1 ranked Harlan will take on Kuemper Catholic in their next match. That contest will be held September 17th in Harlan. Kuemper Catholic is 3-0, the Knights are ranked #3 in Class 3A.

KSOM GAME OF THE WEEK: EXIRA-EHK HOSTING WEST HARRISON


(Exira) #1 ranked Exira-EHK will get their toughest test of the season to date when they host #9 West Harrison.

 

Both teams are undefeated heading into Week 3 and West Harrison brings the highest scoring team in 8-player football to Exira tonight. The Hawkeyes average 65.3 points per game.

 

The good news for the Spartans is that their defense has been their strength so far in their 2-0 start. Exira-EHK is allowing only eight points per game. The bad news is key leader Nick Peppers will be sidelined with a shoulder injury. Coach Petersen is looking for is offense though to take their game to another level in this big showdown. Exira-EHK two victories have come over Boyer Valley (40-8) and Woodbine (36-8).

 

Some think this game could determine the district championship, but coach Petersen not willing to buy into that this early in the season, especially with a district that features powerful teams like Glidden-Ralston, Coon Rapids-Bayard, and Boyer Valley.

RIVERSIDE SUFFERS WEEK 2 SETBACK, LOOKS AHEAD TO EAST MILLS


(Oakland) Riverside meets East Mills in Week 3 of the high school football season.

The Bulldogs football team hits district play with a 1-1 record.

 

Head coach Mitch Rice says the team was unable to maintain their consistency last week in a 24-7 loss at Shenandoah. Travis Henningsen (80) and Connor Rankin (53) combined for over 130 rushing yards but it wasn't enough to top Shenandoah in the team's final non-district test.

 

Riverside takes on a 2-0 East Mills team that is coming off of a 61-0 win against Clarinda Academy. East Mills rolled up over 375 yards of offense last week with more well over 200 of that coming from the running game.

 

Coach Rice says this year's East Mills team looks very similar in style to the squad that beat Riverside 15-0 last year. He describes them as a very big and aggressive squad.

Coach Jody Druvinga says the team was really happy to get the tournament win because they had placed 2nd at Missouri Valley in each of the three previous seasons.

 

Despite the quick start to the year, the team has identified, and begun working on areas to improve. One of those areas according to coach Druvinga is to be more precise with their serving.

CAM VOLLEYBALL AT BOYER VALLEY TONIGHT


(Anita) The CAM volleyball team will have another long bus trip tonight when they travel to Dunlap for a matchup with 4-4 Boyer Valley. The Cougars have sputtered out of the gates with an 0-5 record. Four of those losses came Saturday at the Coon Rapids-Bayard tournament.

 

According to head coach Zeli Rasmussen, middle hitters Mackenzie Cross and Alyssa Kragelund have been two of the bright spots in the rotation. Kragelund leads the team with 13 kills so far this season. Outside of that though, Coach Rasmussen says the team is still trying to find the right spots for everybody this early in the season. She thinks once they get things ironed out the team will have some potential.

 

After tonight's conference matchup with Boyer Valley, CAM will take on rival Adair-Casey on September 17th.

SOUTHWEST VALLEY HANGS TOUGH WITH SIDNEY, OPPOSES NISHNABOTNA NEXT


(Corning) Southwest Valley returns home in Week 3 to host Nishnabotna. The Timberwolves are coming off of their first loss in program history, a 26-30 loss at Sidney. Southwest Valley gave the Cowboys all they wanted in a battle of previously unbeated teams, but in the end head coach Kent Bass said it was, "A game that obviously could have gone either way.  We had an opportunity and didn't execute."

 

Jordan Stuart led the offense in the loss with 67 passing yards and 133 rushing yards. Stuart found the end zone three times. Zack Barton (81) and Gunnar McCuen (74) combined to add 150 yards on the ground. Barton and Keegan Longabaugh each had 15 tackles to lead the defense.

 

Coming up next is Nishnabotna. The Blue Devils are 0-3 with their most recent loss coming to CAM 78-48.

WHEELERS HEAD INTO DISTRICT PLAY AT 0-2


(Audubon) After returning a majority of starters on both sides of the ball from last year's playoff qualifying team, an 0-2 start to the 2013 season was probably far from what  Audubon Wheeler fans expected, but losses to Riverside and AHST have put the Wheelers in that exact spot.

 

Despite the 34-14 loss to AHST last week, the team did see some improvements in their offensive production. Quarterback Trevor Smith returned the lineup and threw for 140 yards. On the ground the team picked up 148 yards led by Jake Mulford's 82 yards on 16 carries.

 

The good news for 0-2 Audubon is that neither loss counts towards a potential return trip to postseason football. Audubon will get their district schedule started this week with a road trip to traditional power Madrid. Madrid enters at 1-1 with a 30-7 win over DM Christaian followed by a 35-7 loss to Van Meter.

CAM SNAPS FOUR GAME LOSING STEAK IN A BIG WAY


(Anita) Dating back to last season the CAM Cougars had come up on the short end of the stick in four straight contests. The Cougars ended the 2012 season with losses to Sidney and Glidden-Ralston and began this season with back-to-back losses against ranked opponents Adair-Casey and River Valley.

 

Last Friday night the Cougars not only snapped their slide, they posted an impressive 78 points on the scoreboard. CAM tallied over 500 yards of offense in their 78-48 district opening win over Nishnabotna. Leading the way was quarterback Trace Ticknor with 255 passing yards and 145 rushing yards. The junior found the end zone seven times. Between rushing and receiving Dylan Amdor combed for 224 yards for 1-2 CAM.

 

A big district test lies ahead next week as they'll travel to Fremont-Mills. The Knights are 1-1 and are coming off of a 59-6 win over Whiting.

GRISWOLD POSTS 41-20 WIN OVER NODAWAY VALLEY


(Griswold) Griswold rumbled for nearly 400 yards on the ground in their Week 2 football win over Nodaway Valley. Kenneth Clary ran for three touchdowns, Tyler Muhlbauer added two, and Caleb Schaaf found the end zone once in the Tigers 41-20 win, their first of the season. Clary ended up with 30 carries and 201 rushing yards.

 

The teams traded blows in the early going with both teams scoring on their opening possessions. Nodaway Valley got the ball first and capped off a 68 yard scoring drive with a 14 yard touchdown run from Zach Brewer. Griswold answered just over four minutes later when wing back Caleb Schaaf carried one in from 14 yards away. Griswold started to take control of the game over the next couple of quarters, taking a lead with a one yard TD run by Tyler Muhlbauer early in the 2nd quarter and then grabbing some momentum with a six yard TD run by Clary late in the first half.

 

The Tigers extended their 22-8 halftime lead to a 29-8 advantage early in the third quarter. Clary's 2nd touchdown of the night capped off the team's first drive of the 2nd half. Nodaway Valley battled back early in the fourth quarter with Zach Brewer scoring on a 9 yard touchdown run to make it a 29-14 score. Clary broke free for a third touchdown a minute and a half later to build Griswold's lead back up to a three score advantage, but Nodaway Valley's biggest play of the game came a minute later when Zach Plymesser hauled in a 50 yard score from Jackson Lamb. Griswold recovered the onside kick and melted several minutes off the clock. Late in the game, Muhlbauer put the game away with 1 yard TD plunge to give Griswold the 41-20 advantage.

 

In addition to Clary's 200 yard game, Schaaf posted 91 yards on 13 carries and Muhlbauer posted 80 yards on 19 rush attempts.

Carroll High turned three Trojan turnovers into scores during the first three minutes of the game. Anthony Beyerink scored on a 26-yard run, Ross hit Isaac Riesselman on a 15-yard TD strike and Cooper LaRue recovered a high snap in the end zone to lead 21-0 with 8:56 left in the first quarter.

 

The other Tiger scores came on a 61-yard touchdown strike to Cody Davis, Beyerink punched one in from one yard out, and Addison Ross found Eli Cleveland wide open in the end zone late in the second quarter to take a 41-0 halftime lead. The Tigers rolled up 328-yards in the first half alone.

 

In the second half Addison Ross sent a 51-yard aerial to Riesselman with 4:11 left in the third  quarter to extend their lead to 47-0, and at that point the Carroll High starters were given the rest of the night off.

 

Carroll High goes to 1-1 on the season and Atlantic falls to 1-1.

CROSS COUNTRY SEASON NEARING FOR GRISWOLD


(Griswold) The Griswold cross country teams will start competition Tuesday at Clarinda.

 

The defending state champion Griswold girls will be led by front runners Rebekah Topham and Alyx Flippin… Leah Lappe and Bridget Mauer both have past varsity experience and then a mix of new faces will round out the varsity lineup for the first meet. Kayla Kirchoff is in her first year of cross country and has earned a varsity nod as have freshmen Alissa Wyman and JoAnna Topham.

 

Head coach Jane Chaillie says they also have several top JV runners pushing for varsity spots.

 

Running at Clarinda will give the team a chance to compete against schools from Missouri, Nebraska, as well as some of the top Hawkeye 10 schools. Most notably they are curious to see how they stack up with defending 3A state qualifier Harlan.

 

As far as the boys varsity runners for Griswold it’ll be seniors Jacob Moss, Tyrel Peters, Grant Haynes Josh Turek, and Dusty Meek along with freshmen Taber Feltner and Joseph Turek.

 

This year’s meet has been moved from the Clarinda Academy Campus to Clarinda High School.

AHST LOOKING FOR FIRST 2-0 START SINCE 2009


(Avoca) AHST will oppose Audubon in Week #2 of the high school football season. The Vikings picked up a very quality win over Tri-Center (20-14) to start off the year last week.

 

Kyle Bauerkemper ran for 157 yards and QB Nathan Herbst added 124 more. They'll take on an Audubon group that lost to Riverside in overtime 15-14. Coach Davis Pattee says despite the big plays, the team needs to be more consistent on offense as the season continues. Austin Fink was all over the field defensively in week 1 with 19 tackles and Fink will likely see more touches on offense this week. Coach Davis Pattee wants to see more balance on offense.

Coach Pattee notes that Audubon has a ton of starters returning.

Coach Pattee says special teams will also be key because Audubon has a lot of explosive players. AHST beat Audubon in a good one last year, 36-20. A win tonight would put AHST at 2-0 for the first time since their days of the 27 game regular season win streak from 2007-2009.

 

 

 

 

CAROLL HUNGRY FOR A WIN AFTER CLOSE CALL LAST WEEK


(Carroll) The Carroll Tigers were a 2-point conversion away from topping Class 2A #2 ranked Kuemper Catholic last week and thus enter their Week 2 matchup with Atlantic at 0-1.

 

The Tigers defense held a high octane Kuemper Catholic offense to just 7 points which coach Dennis McCartin was very impressed with saying he doesn't expect Kuemper Catholic to be held under 40 points the rest of the regular season. That tough Carroll "D" will face an Atlantic team that scored just seven points last week in a 7-3 win at Clarinda.

 

Carroll and Atlantic have had some very good battles in recent years. Atlantic prevailed 25-20 last season and 41-25 two years ago, but Carroll beat Atlantic 55-27 the year before that.

ADAIR-CASEY VOLLEYBALL SEASON OFF TO A GOOD START


(Adair) Adair-Casey started the volleyball season with a three sets to one win over Boyer Valley on Thursday. The Bombers won by set scores of 25-19, 16-25, 25-20 and 25-22.

 

Head coach Cindy Lundy says Danni McCorkel came out and attacked the ball in set one. She also notes the serving prowess of Zoey Dinkla and the aggressive play at the net of London Vais.

 

Next up for the 1-0 Bomber volleyball team is a weekend tournament at Coon Rapids-Bayard. The Bombers are matched up with Pleasantville in their first round of pool play. Coach Lundy likes the tournament format to allow her players to get as many games and as much experience under their belt as they can.

KSOM2 WEEK 2 BROADCAST: ABRAHAM LINCOLN AT HARLAN


(Harlan) It's an early season battle of unbeatens at Merrill Field in Harlan tonight. Either Abraham Lincoln or Harlan will suffer their first loss of the year while the other will head into Week 3 at 2-0.

 

Harlan head coach Curt Bladt says it was a mixed bag as far as the play of his team in the season opener at Denison-Schleswig. In the 28-6 win the Cyclones had several positives, but also committed some early season mistakes. Coach Bladt says Nate Gettys was a bright spot offensively and Connor Clayton played well on Defense.

 

Abraham Lincoln posted a 34-27 win over. Head coach Justin Kammrad looks for a very competetive game against Harlan tonight. The two main matchups he points to as keys are how AL's DB's can defend Harlan's tall wide receivers and if AL's offensive line can control the line of scrimmage.

 

Steve Olson will have the play-by-play joined by Cody Olson on the call. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m.

CROSS TOWN RIVALRY BETWEEN LC AND ST. ALBERT SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE


(Council Bluffs) Expect a large crowd at Lewis Central tonight as cross town rivals Lewis Central and St. Albert get together.

 

Lewis Central comes in at 0-1 while St. Albert is 1-0. Lewis Central lost to Abraham Lincoln 34-27 in Week 1. Titan coach Jim Duggan says that game featured a lot of Week One mistakes with his team breaking in several young players at the varsity level. St. Albert roared out to a 58-24 win over Griswold. The Falcons change to a spread out, no-huddle, zone-read offense and it seems to have worked pretty well.

 

Both teams are very familiar with each other as they prepare to go head to head. St. Albert coach Kevin Culjat says defense and specials teams play will be very important for his squad in the road contest. Lewis Central head man Jim Duggan will be keeping a close eye on the battle in the trenches, he says St. Albert is very good up front, perhaps the best group of linemen that they have had in several years.

ATLANTIC FOOTBALL TEAM FOCUSES ON CARROLL


(Atlantic) The 2013 Atlantic football team will hold their home opener tonight when they welcome 0-1 Carroll. The Trojans started the season last week on the road with a 7-3 win over Clarinda.

 

Coach Nick Ross says he was happy with the way the team performed among the offensive line last week. There are some mistakes to clean up including the number of fumbles the team had. Defensively the team was led by Reid Nichols who came up with a big interception and Clarinda totalled just three points on the board.

 

Against Carroll the Trojan secondary will get tested much more than they did against a Clarinda team that attempted just three passes. Carroll will also bring a lot of speed out of the backfield with Anthony Beyerink who ran for 89 yards on 25 carries last week against Kuemper Catholic. Carroll is coming off of a 7-6 season opening loss against their cross town rival.

0-1 AUDUBON FOOTBALL TEAM TO HOST AHST IN HOME OPENER


(Audubon) The Audubon Wheeler football team will host 1-0 AHST in their home opener. Audubon suffered a 15-14 overtime loss to Riverside last week. Coach Sean Birks says they've turned that loss into motivation for Week 2.

 

The team identified a couple of areas they need to improve on. One of those is the blocking assignments up front and the other is conditioning. Coach Birks says both of those were a priority in practice this week and adds that the seniors were pushing everyone in practice to get in better shape.

 

Coach Birks says the main challenge against AHST will be stopping the run. The Vikings had Kyle Bauerkemper and Nathan Herbst each run for over 100 yards in last weeks win over Tri-Center.

TRI-CENTER LOOKING TO CLEAN THINGS UP AGAINST UNDERWOOD


(Neola) Tri-Center gave up three very big plays against AHST which proved to be the difference in their Week 1 loss to the Vikings. 20-14 was the final score in a game that went down to the wire.

 

Tri-Center turned in a number of big plays themselves but only came up with two TD's. They were denied at the two yard line in the final seconds as they attempted to tie the game up. Tri-Center's highlights came mainly from fullback Ben Wellman who rumbled for 218 yards on 25 carries.

 

In Week 2 the Trojans expect to see a heavy dose of 1-0 Underwood's running game. The Eagles topped Treynor 19-9 a week ago behind 233 rushing yards. Tri-Center coach John Tiarks says Underwood has a very, very big offensive line. See what else coach Tiarks has to say about the matchup by clicking the link below.

PEPPERS BROTHERS STAR FOR EXIRA-EHK IN WEEK 1


(Exira) #1 ranked Exira-EHK opened up the season with a 40-8 triumph over  Boyer Valley.

 

Head coach Tom Petersen says, upon reviewing the film, he felt very comfortable with the way the defense played. Nick Peppers led the team with 13 tackles. Offensively they had three turnovers and twelve penalties. Between the run and the pass, quarterback Drew Peppers combined for 380 yards and five touchdowns.

 

He looks for more chemistry and rhythm in week 2 as the team tries to go through the week of practice by going in game speed during their preparation.

 

Woodbine brings a big challenge with 7 senior starters. They are described by the Spartan head man as a physical team. Woodbine is 0-1 with a 50-14 loss to West Harrison last week.

NODAWAY VALLEY TRAVELS TO GRISWOLD IN WEEK 2


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley will have a lot in common with their week two football opponent. Both Nodaway Valley and Griswold lost to top 10 ranked Class 1A opponents in week 1, and both schools are dealing with very low numbers this season.

 

For the Wolverines it was a 44-0 loss to Mount Ayr, a game that head coach Steve Shantz says was rough on his team to start the season given their lack of depth. Nodaway Valley gained just 90 yards of offense on the night. In Week 2 the Wolverines will welcome in a Griswold team that was largely in the same boat last week, facing an uphill battle against St. Albert.

 

When it comes to taking on Griswold, coach Shantz says the main emphasis is on stopping the run. Caleb Mueller, Michael Stender, and Mason Clarke will all be key defenders against Griswold's rushing attack. Coach Shantz says stopping Griswold's trap play will be very important.

 

Nodaway Valley and Griswold played a close game a season ago. Griswold scored a touchdown late in the game to come out on top 7-3.

CAM FOOTBALL WELL PREPARED FOR DISTRICT PLAY


(Anita) With a 55-40 loss to Adair-Casey followed by a 66-12 setback to River Valley it's been a tough start to the season for CAM. The Cougars though haven't let that take away from their goals of being a contender within 8-Player district 8 as the district play starts this Friday.

 

CAM has had one of the toughest non-district schedules to help gear them up for what is expected to be a competetive district. Southwest Valley, Sidney, and Lenox have all opened up the year with 2-0 records.

 

Coach Joe Wollum says the team is not discouraged by their 0-2 start. He says they've come to practice very focused this week. Their focus is on an 0-2 Nishnabotna team that runs an options style offense. After seeing the play of the defense last week, Coach Wollum says tackling has been this big emphasis of this week's practices.

HARLAN HIRES NEXT SOFTBALL COACH


(Harlan) Harlan Community High School has announced the hiring of Kent Klinkefus as their varsity softball coach. The move is still pending school board approval.

 

Coach Klinkefus has coached a wide variety of sports and has several years of experience. Most recently he has served as the assistant softball coach at Harlan for the past five years. 

 

Coach Klinkefus says he's excited to help lead the program to the next level of getting to the state tournament in Fort Dodge. He says it will take hard work to make the state tournament a part of Harlan's end of season routine.

 

Klinkefus replaces Megan Hoch who resigned following the 2013 season. Hoch served as head coach for just one season.

AUDUBON VOLLEYBALL OFF TO STRONG START


(Audubon) The Audubon Volleyball team is off to a 1-0 start to the season with their three sets to one win over Guthrie Center on Tuesday.

 

Head coach Molly Lange says the team played well in the first action of the 2013 campaign. Several veteran players stepped up in the Wheeler’s initial match of the year. Coah Lange notes Haillie Anthopher had a double-double with kills and digs. She also says Susie Bylund distributed the ball well. Coach Lange added that Emma Konkler was aggressive on the front line and commented that libero Bailey Nelsen was all over the court. 11 different players saw action which makes the depth of the team a big strength.

 

The Wheelers next time on the floor will be the South Central Calhoun tournament on Saturday.

SW VALLEY FACES EARLY SEASON CHALLENGE THIS WEEK


(Corning) The football merger between Villisca and Corning has worked extremely well over the first two weeks of the season. Southwest Valley topped Tri-County Thornburg 62-28 in week zero and then defeated Stanton last week 60-12.

 

This Friday night will likely bring Southwest Valley’s toughest test to date against a 2-0 Sidney team. Sidney has wins over Ar-We-Va 44-20 and Nishnabotna 56-18.

 

Coach Kent Bass says the success has come due to high expectations and a high level of competition throughout the program. He adds that captains Zach Barton and Keegan Longabough have been just a couple of the many players providing great leadership in year one of the Southwest Valley football program.

IKM-MANNING DROPS CLOSE OPENER, TURNS ATTENTION TO LOGAN-MAGNOLIA


(Manning) 0-1 IKM-Manning opposes 1-0 Logan-Magnolia Friday night in non-district football.

 

These two teams went a combined 23-2 overall and 17-1 in the regular season last year. IKM-Manning head coach Tom Casey has a lot of respect for 5th ranked Logan-Magnolia saying they are a well coached and very physical football team. He looks for the Panthers to try and establish the run and use that to set up the play-action pass.

 

The Wolves began the season last week by coming up on the short end of a 22-19 final against OA-BCIG. Coach Casey says the identified two main areas to work on: blocking and tackling. Junior Sam Wagner was one of the bright spots offensively rushing for 128 yards and 2 TD's.

 

Logan-Magnolia comes in on the heels of a 40-14 win over Missouri Valley. IKM-Manning won last year’s matchup between these two non-district foes 26-7.

2-0 ADAIR-CASEY BOMBERS DISPLAYING STIFLING DEFENSE


(Adair) Adair-Casey averaged 55 points per game offensively last year and so far this year have hung totals of 55 and 69 points on the board in their first two games. The defense though may be the most impressive part of the team's 2-0 start. Adair-Casey allowed only 13 yards rushing and 60 total yards in their Week 1 win over Colo-Nesco.

 

According to head coach Wade Anderson, the varsity defense allowed negative yardage while they were on the field and Colo-Nesco's first positive play in the game didn't come until the final play of the first half.

 

In Week 2 Adair-Casey's defense will have the task of slowing down a spread out attack from East Union. The Eagles ran for over 300 yards in their 48-6 win over Moravia last week.

GUTHRIE CENTER HOPES TO AVOID INJURY BUG IN WEEK 2


(Guthrie Center) In Guthrie Center's season opening loss to Panorama the Tigers lost four starters, all two-way starters, in the first quarter to injury. Three of those individuals are expected to return next week.

 

Despite the loss, Coach Bob Bolton says his younger players stepped up and played well to keep the game as close as the 28-14 final. Ausin Laabs starred early on in the game before going out with an ankle injury. The junior ran the ball 10 times for 41 yards and also returned a fumble 78 yards for a score.

 

1-0 Ogden hosts 0-1 Guthrie Center this week. Coach Bolton says Ogden has a lot of speed, they are coming off of a 7-0 win over Woodward-Granger last week.

ATLANTIC VOLLEYBALL TEAM DROPS SEASON OPENER


(Atlantic) Just one match into the season, the Atlantic volleyball team has already done something that they were unable to do a year ago. The Trojans won one set in their season opening loss to Glenwood on Tuesday. Coming off of a winless season, the Trojans start off at 0-1, but perhaps have something to build upon as the season continues. Coach Bonnie Clinch says the team still has a lot of room for improvement throughout the year.

 

Atlantic volleyball coach Bonnie Clinch comments

 

3-2 Glenwood took the first two sets in Atlantic on Tuesday by scores of 25-17 and 25-6, but Atlantic rallied in set three for a 25-22 win. Glenwood came back to close things out in set four by topping Atlantic 25-10. Halie Darrow led the Rams with 12 kills. Myranda Starner served up 7 aces.

 

Atlantic's next match will be at 1-0 Creston on Tuesday. Creston started the season last night with a sweep of Norwalk.

HARLAN CYCLONES OPEN UP VOLLEYBALL SEASON WITH #1 RANKING


(Harlan) The Harlan volleyball team got their season underway with a 5-0 start on Saturday. The Cyclones won their home tournament by defeating Glenwood, Underwood, Winterset, and Abraham Lincoln (twice). The Cylcones didn't drop a single set along the way.

 

Over the course of the tournament Jess Schaben recorded a team best 53 kills. Her kill efficiency was off the charts at .568. Taylor Frederick and Elle Kloewer each added 18 kills a piece with Frederick also posting 14 blocks. Kenzie Swanson distributed 88 assists and Asia Kloewer led the team in digs with 34.

 

Harlan will be in action again next weekend. The Cyclones head to a tournament at WDM Valley where they expect to see plenty of good competition including Ankeny within their pool.
