Kee football team will open Eight-Player State Play-Offs at Janesville

The Kee football team hosted Midland of Wyoming in the final Eight-Player District 4 match-up of the season for both teams, but with so much more riding on the game’s final outcome than just a win or loss. Both teams held equal records of 3-3 in district play heading into the contest, with the winner earning the district’s fourth-place and final Eight-Player State Play-Off berth.
Nearly as even as the two team’s district records were their offensive yardage totals in the ballgame, each holding a slight edge in their respective specialties, with Kee holding a slight offensive edge, 455-406, and that edge further translating on to the final scoreboard with a 64-44 Hawk victory.

Waukon football team’s play-off hopes go down to final play in 27-20 loss at CPU

The Waukon football team took the possibility of its third consecutive State Play-Off qualification right down to the final play of its Class 2A District 3 clash at 6-2 Center Point-Urbana Friday, October 17. But, much like all three of the Indians’ final passes in the ballgame from just four yards away from the end zone, their play-off hopes also fell just shy of completion with a 27-20 loss to the host Stormin’ Pointers. The loss leaves the Indians with a 2-6 overall record, including a 1-4 mark in Class 2A District 3 play that will keep the Indians from reaching the district’s fourth-place and final play-off qualification spot. Instead, the Indians will wrap up their 2014 season this Friday, October 24 with a home game against Oelwein. At 1-5 overall, the Huskies have an equal 1-4 District 3 record with - like the Indians - that lone win coming over Waterloo Columbus. Oelwein comes off a 26-18 non-district loss to Benton Community this past Friday.
