Hawks will begin Eight-Player State Play-Offs this Friday at Central City

Wrapping up its regular season playing a non-district game at home Friday, October 13 against an Edgewood-Colesburg (Ed-Co) team having a very similar season - both teams sporting 5-2 records overall and sitting pretty firmly in third place in their respective districts with marks of 4-2, the Kee football team found itself in a shoot-out in a game that had no play-off implications for either team but certainly put on a show with a combined 120 points scored and nearly 1,000 yards of total offense. Whether any “Friday the 13th” superstitions or persuasions played a role or not, the game saw the Hawks give up their highest point total of the season but also scored the most points the visiting Vikings have given up all season in the 70-50 Kee defeat.

Waukon football team stuffs New Hampton’s two-point conversion run in overtime to clinch a 28-27 road triumph and Tribe’s sixth consecutive district championship

Indians will open Class 2A State Play-Offs at home this Friday against Union

“Deja vu while going for two!”

That could very well be the final battle cry of the Waukon football team’s 28-27 overtime triumph in its 2023 regular season finale played at New Hampton Friday, October 13, as for the second straight season the Indian defense stopped the Chickasaws short of their ultimate goal on their final offensive play in consecutive games with strong play-off implications. That latest feat came on this past Friday’s final play of the game, a two-point conversion run in overtime by New Hampton workhorse senior Braden McShane that was stuffed short of not only deciding the ballgame in the Chickasaws’ favor but also this season’s Class 2A District 3 champion, the Indians now owning their sixth consecutive district crown.

Key third-down pick-up ... Waukon football sophomore Jared Snitker drags this Osage defender on the way to a third-down run in the third quarter of the Indians’ 20-8 home win over the Green Devils Friday, October 6. On a third-and-two situation late in the third quarter at the Osage 16-yard line, and the score tied at 8-8, Snitker powered out this nine-yard run to set up a first-and-goal at the seven-yard line and the eventual go-ahead touchdown for the Indians on that drive. Snitker carried the ball five times in the contest, including this third-down conversion, and also recorded one each of solo and assisted tackles.

Playing for a chance to solidify a seventh consecutive berth in the Class 2A State Play-Offs, the Waukon football team ground out 20 unanswered points and a second-half shut-out against an Osage team battling for its own play-off life in a Friday, October 6 District 3 home match-up.

Kee football team claims five turnovers, scores on first seven possessions to roll to 64-2 win at Central Elkader

The Kee football team had some business to take care of when the Hawks traveled to Central Elkader Friday, October 6 for their final Eight-Player District 3 ballgame of this season. Wanting to do all they can to take care of their own State Play-Off possibilities, the Hawks did just that against the host Warrior squad that was yet winless on this season, scoring on their first seven possessions of the contest to bolt to a 50-0 halftime lead and coming away with five turnovers to help stifle Central on the way to a 64-2 victory that further solidified Kee’s grip on a third-place district finish and would force only the most rare of situations that would keep the Hawks from earning qualification for this season’s State Play-Offs.

Waukon football team rolls to first win streak of this season, share of current District 3 lead with 49-20 victory at Oelwein

The Waukon football team took a step forward toward possibly continuing its recent trend of district championships when the grid Tribe traveled to Oelwein Friday, September 29. That step was, perhaps, the easiest of the Indians’ district journey, as they jumped to a 14-0 lead over the yet winless host Huskies on the way to a 49-20 triumph and the Tribe’s first win streak of the season with a second consecutive victory.

“We started out with a good kick-off return to set up a short field, and we knew we needed to be aggressive offensively, as we have had trouble stopping Oelwein in the past,” Waukon football head coach Chad Beermann said. “So, we wanted to take the ball and get points right away.”
