Kee football team ends season with strong battle against Midland team playing for a State Play-Off berth, wraps up 2019 campaign with 36-18 loss

The Kee football team brought its season to a close Friday, October 25 at Midland, but not before giving that host Eagle team fighting for extension of its own season a strong challenge that eventually waned away in the final frame to a 36-18 Hawk defeat. The Kee gridders answered Midland nearly blow-for-blow to just a 20-18 deficit through three full frames but had that pace derailed in the fourth quarter to result in a final 16-0 Eagle outburst that provided a majority of the game’s final doubled-up margin.

The loss ends Kee’s football season at a 2-7 overall record that included a mark of 2-5 that placed the Hawks sixth in the final eight-team standings of Eight-Man District 3. The Midland victory allowed the Eagles to improve to 7-2 overall and a third-place record of 5-2 in District 3 play that all proved to be good enough to land them one of the final State Play-Off seeds and a first-round date at HLV-Victor this Friday, November 1.

Waukon football team completes first undefeated regular season since the 1950s, clinches home field edge with 56-36 triumph at North Fayette Valley

Despite the Waukon football team’s Friday, October 25 final game of the regular season at North Fayette Valley featuring the already State Play-Off clinched Indians taking on a transitioning TigerHawk team bringing its season to a close, there was still plenty to play for besides the natural rivalry that seems to have developed between the two squads over the last several seasons. The Indians had a chance to gain further play-off advantage with a pending top billing in the final Class 2A State Play-Off seeding process resulting in hosting their first two postseason games and an even more historical motivation of being the first Indian grid squad in the Iowa high school football play-off era to complete an undefeated regular season and the first such season since the grid Tribe played to unblemished marks under Coach Walter “Red” Rixen in both 1953 and 1957.

A win this Friday would complete first undefeated regular season since the 1950s

The Waukon football team put on quite an offensive display for its hometown fans in the Tribe’s final regular season game at home Friday, October 18, scoring on every one of its first-half possessions to bolt to a 60-0 lead by the halftime break on the way to a 66-0 victory over an Anamosa squad coming off its first win of the season last week. Those 66 points are the most scored by a Waukon football team since a 67-6 home victory over Fillmore Central out of Minnesota to start the Tribe’s 2007 campaign and the most scored by a team under the guidance of Indian head coach Chad Beermann since his final season at Valley CEW, where his Tigers defeated Cedar Valley Christian by a 72-0 result in Eight-Man play during the 2012 season.
