  • Knights get first win of football season

    The Fremont-Mills football team got its first win of the season with a 59-6 victory over Whiting Community Friday.

    The Knights (1-1) didn’t roll up huge offensive numbers but they controlled throughout.

    “I thought we played very well,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen. “We were able to kind of do what we want. We had some hiccups here and there which happens in high school football. They gave us short fields a lot, so just looking at our stats, we weren’t that impressive.”

    “Very solid games for us,” said Glenwood coach Maria Jacobus. “We had great passing and defense which allowed us to do more offensively.”

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Not many coaches would be in any kind of mood to smile after losing his starting quarterback in the first quarter, turning the ball over four times and committing 12 penalties.

    But there was Glenwood football coach Cory Faust after his team’s physical, tough road game at Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Friday, smiling.

    Smiling.

    I guess it’s easy to smile when key injuries, four turnovers and 12 penalties adds up to a 38-19 Glenwood victory.
