The final tune-up for the Waukon football team prior to the start of its Class 2A District 4 schedule showed a powerful engine running on all cylinders as the Indians rolled over Class 1A Cascade by a 42-13 final result at home Friday, September 20 in their final non-district game of the regular season. The Cougars that once owned the only win over the grid Tribe’s State Championship team two seasons ago have since fallen on harder times as they’ve dropped to Class 1A, not having enough football participation this season to allow for a freshman game to be played prior to Friday’s varsity game and ultimately not being able to keep up with an Indian attack that bolted to a 36-0 halftime lead and held a 42-0 fourth quarter advantage before allowing two late Cascade scores.

Completing their non-district schedule unblemished at 4-0, the Indians will now prepare to open Class 2A District 4 play this Friday, September 27 when they travel to Monticello to take on a Panther team that is also 4-0 after a 21-14 win at winless Maquoketa Valley this past Friday. The Panthers also played Cascade to start this season, pulling out just a 14-7 home victory in the first week of this 2019 campaign, and they bring an air attack that has so far yielded slightly more yards than Waukon (1,108-1,040) but fewer touchdowns (10-13), as those two teams have combined for more air production than the district’s remaining four teams combined.
