  • East Mills runs past Sidney in second half

    SIDNEY - East Mills coach Andy Irwin said it wasn’t the rain Friday night that diverted his usually pass happy offense into running the ball 27 times in the second half and passing just four times.

    Whatever the reason - and for the record, Irwin said it was mostly a halftime adjustment to emphasize the run in the second half - it’s hard to argue with the Wolverines’ success. East Mills rushed for a 168 yards and Jake Bolton threw for two scores all after halftime to hang on late for a 26-22 victory over Sidney in Eight Man, District 8 football on Friday.

  • Getting His Kicks

    Through four games of his senior season for the North Alabama University football team, placekicker Kenny Spencer is 5-of-7 on field goal attempts.

    In his one year as the starting place kicker for the Glenwood football team in 2004, Spencer, then a lanky 170-pounder better known for his play on the soccer field than the football field, was 5-for-7 on field goals for the entire season.

    Spencer, a 2005 Glenwood Community High School graduate has come a long way.

    Literally.

  • 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.
