The Waukon football survived a dormant second half to outlast the visiting Sailors of Waterloo Columbus for a 30-27 Homecoming victory Friday, October 2. The Indians had rolled up 22 points in a productive second quarter to bolt to a 30-12 halftime advantage, but then silent on the offensive side of the ball for the entire second half, holding off a late Columbus charge during that same timeframe and surviving a potential game-tying field goal that missed its mark in the game’s final 1:20. The Homecoming victory improves the Indians to a 5-1 overall record that bettered to a 2-1 mark in Class 2A District 3 play. The Tribe will head to New Hampton this Friday, October 9 to take on a Chickasaw team yet undefeated against District 3 opponents but sporting a 4-2 overall season record after a 40-13 victory at Oelwein this past Friday, October 2.

The first two offensive possessions for the Kee football team in its Friday, October 2 home game with West Central looked as if it would be a happy Homecoming for the Purple and Silver, as the Hawks marched down the field for a pair of touchdowns and a 14-8 early advantage over the visiting Blue Devils. But, the final three quarters of the contest proved otherwise, as those first two Kee drives would end up accounting for a majority of the Hawk offensive production in the ballgame, while West Central established that same early pace but carried it over into the game’s remainder on the way to a 62-14 Kee defeat.
Falling to a 2-4 overall record, 2-2 in Eight-Player District 4, the Hawks hit the road this week, playing at Springville this Friday, October 9. The Orioles have a 2-5 record on the season, including a 1-3 mark in Eight-Player District 4 play after coming off their first district win, 47-30, at Central City this past Friday, October 2.
