Second half turnovers and big plays dim Kee football team’s early efforts in 60-0 road loss at second-rated Turkey Valley

After coming off its first victory of the season last Friday, the Kee football team faced the unenviable task of traveling to the home of an undefeated Turkey Valley team ranked as high as second in some Eight-Player polls Friday, October 4. The highly-regarded Trojans had averaged nearly 58 points a game in playing to a 5-0 start to this season, and although the Hawks battled hard early on, their Turkey Valley hosts used some big plays and some Kee misfortune to break open the game and maintain their scoring average in dealing the Hawks a 60-0 defeat.

The Hawks will continue their mid-season gauntlet as they will remain on the road this week to face yet another top-10 ranked District 3 opponent in ninth-rated Easton Valley at Preston. The River Hawks come off a 52-6 win at Central City this past Friday and have averaged nearly 62 points per game on the way to a 6-0 season record that has been fueled by an enviable offensive balance of nearly 1,200 yards on the ground and more than 1,500 yards through the air for a yardage total that currently ranks third and a scoring total that ranks second among all Eight-Player teams in the state of Iowa.
