  • Glenwood stumbles at Creston

    Rarely does a team out yard its opponent, have less turnovers and win the battle of field position and not come out with the win. But that's exactly what happened on Friday as Creston knocked off Glenwood 14-6 in Class 3A, District 8 football action.

    “They made it a struggle for us,” said Glenwood coach Brian Albert, whose team dropped to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the district.

    The Rams got on the board first in the first quarter when Cole Darrow picked off Luke Eblen’s first pass of the game to set up Michael Lawler’s 24 yard field goal.

  • Rams win in homecoming shutout

    “Was this a shutout?”

    That's how Glenwood football coach Brian Albert responded when asked when his team last posted a shutout.

    It's hard to blame Albert for being a little distracted. He’s got a little more on his mind after his team improved to 3-1 on the season and a 2-0 start in Class 3, District 8 with a 17-0 victory over Clarke-Osceola on Homecoming Night in Glenwood.

    Albert couldn't recall the last time Glenwood shut out an opponent or when his team last started a football season 3-1 but agrees the Rams' 2-0 start in the district is big.

    “We had some trouble last week defending the blitzing linebacker against our spread and we wanted to sharpen that up,” he said. “I really thought we took care of some things in this game.”
