The Waukon football team ultimately started its journey down another Class 2A State Play-Off road by successfully reaching its initial destination, but not without navigating through some bumps in that road dealt by a Tipton Tiger team that traveled nearly two-and-a-half hours north Friday, November 1. Those bumps included giving away four turnovers while gaining just one of their own, along with a multitude of penalties, but the Indians overcame all of that and then some with big plays of greater than 35 yards resulting in five of the Indians’ seven touchdowns on the way to nearly 500 yards of total offense and an eventual 52-16 first-round State Play-Off victory.
