Kee football team scores on all but two of 11 full possessions to open District 3 play with a 68-56 victory at Turkey Valley

Facing a second consecutive State Play-Off team from last season in another road contest Friday, September 1, the Kee football team once again paid little heed to anything its opponent had accomplished in previous years and continued to prove what it can do this year. Getting a full taste of just what this year’s grid Hawks can do in Friday’s Eight-Player District 3 opener was a Turkey Valley host squad the Hawks have plenty of grid iron history with, including some classic State Play-Off battles, as the two teams waged war to what turned out to be a 68-56 Kee triumph.

The Hawks are scheduled to play their first home game of the season when they remain in Eight-Player District 3 to host Waterloo Christian in a rare Thursday evening contest September 7. The Regents are in their first year of eight-player football and have opened their 2023 campaign with consecutive losses, 57-14 at Springville and 44-39 at West Central this past Thursday, August 31.
