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.
