Controlling rights for the top of Class 2A District 4 were on the line - along with a happy Homecoming, when the Waukon football team played host to Waterloo Columbus in a match-up of Class 2A top 10-rated teams Friday, October 5. Despite identical records of 5-1 and 2-0 in district play, the experience of the more recent winning Waukon program matched up against a Columbus program experiencing its first winning season - and more than two wins in a season - since 2010 made for a not nearly as similar final result, as the Indians posted a 20-0 second quarter burst on the way to a 38-12 Homecoming victory.

Football Hawks fall to River Hawks of Easton Valley in 34-0 Homecoming defeat


Homecoming happiness denied in muddy mess ... The photo above gives some indication of the field conditions that proved to be somewhat limiting to the Kee football team in its 34-0 Homecoming loss to Easton Valley Friday, October 5. The Hawks were set up on three occasions within five yards of the goal line but were turned away each time, also surrendering four turnovers in the loss.

A rain-soaked field did not allow for much traction Friday, October 5 when the Kee football team hosted Easton Valley in this season’s Homecoming contest, at least not enough traction for the Hawks to get on to the scoreboard in falling by a 34-0 final result to the visiting River Hawks. Having moved the game’s start time up an hour to avoid what was forecasted to be the worst of Friday night’s weather, the previous and existing weather conditions and some hard-grinding football action made for some challenging conditions that left the Hawks’ home field and both teams a muddy mess.

Those conditions resulted in four Kee turnovers, two of which were returned right away for Easton Valley touchdowns. The Hawks also found enough traction to get themselves to the scoreboard door step, but suffered another of those turnovers and two fourth down denials within just a step or two of the goal line.

Waukon football team rides season-high aerial assault to 46-16 District 4 win at Oelwein

The Waukon football team traveled to Oelwein Friday, September 28 to play what many may consider a “trap” game, with the traditionally-troubled Husky program having won just two games in its previous six seasons combined and in search of its first Class 2A District 4 victory after coming off a 54-0 district-opening loss to a single-loss Waterloo Columbus team the previous week, with the Indians staring at that same Columbus team next on their schedule. This season’s Huskies, however, have already equaled the win total of their last six seasons and battled the football Tribe to an even first quarter before the Indians found their bearings and rattled off 38 unanswered points on the way to a 46-16 Waukon victory.
