Kee football team fights back from 12-0 deficit in first 30 seconds, scores game-winning touchdown with 11 seconds left in 50-46 triumph at N. Iowa

Anyone who saw the first 30 seconds of the Kee football team’s Friday, September 25 road game at North Iowa in Buffalo Center would likely not have guessed it would go down to the final 30 seconds before being decided in the Hawks’ favor. North Iowa fans may still not believe it.

“Wow! That was quite the high school football game,” Kee football coach Chad Winters said. “It wasn’t the cleanest played game, but the fans sure got their money’s worth. We couldn’t have had a worse start than we did. We were down 12-0 just 23 seconds into the game after two big plays by them and a turnover by us. To the boys’ credit, they battled back.”

Indians’ game this Friday canceled due to continued COVID-19 concerns at Independence

For most teams, opening a game with 10 plays and finding the end zone would be considered a pretty good opening possession. But for the Waukon football team, after running just 10 plays of offense in their Friday, September 18 Homecoming game against Oelwein, they had already built a 50-0 advantage over the visiting Huskies.

Kee football team takes control in second half of 30-0 win at Central City

Coming off its first loss of the 2020 football season, the Kee football team was looking to get back on track when the Hawks traveled to Central City Friday, September 18. Facing a Wildcat team that has yet to win a game and has been outscored by a 219-14 result, including a pair of scoreless losses to this season’s Eight-Player District 3 top-10 ranked leaders, the Hawks continued that trend with a 30-0 road triumph.

As convincing as that Hawk win seemed to be, it did take some time to develop. The two teams slugged out just a 6-0 Kee halftime lead, but Hawk football coach Chad Winters said some changes made at the game’s midpoint break proved to be effective, as the Hawks put together a 24-0 outscoring of the host Wildcats to pull away to their shut-out victory.

Waukon football team takes to the air to record 34-14 win at New Hampton

The Waukon football team got its Class 2A District 4 season underway in successful fashion Friday, September 11 when it traveled to New Hampton for a battle between squads each holding a 1-1 season record. Although rainy, windy weather conditions limited each team to a slow start to each half, the Indians were able to overcome both the weather conditions and the host Chickasaws’ defensive effort to find scoreboard success through the air on the way to a 34-14 victory.

“Coach (Jed) Hemann always has the passing figured into our attack, and our kids are getting a bit more in sync each week,” Waukon football coach Chad Beermann said. “It never rained too hard, and the wind did not really impact the conditions much. New Hampton has a good defensive line, and they gave us some problems initially. You usually come in with a philosophy of how you want to attack a team, but that often has to be changed up a bit after you see the way they play in person.”
