  • Rams’ season ends in district opener

    Nearly 40 fouls and 45 free throws.

    Not exactly the picture of pretty basketball but it was exactly the kind of tough, defensive-minded game Glenwood coach Curt Schulte envisioned in his team’s Class 3A, District 15 match up with Creston, who split a pair of games with the Rams this season.

    Unfortunately the Rams’ offense got out of sync early with foul trouble to leading scorer Robby King and never seemed to recover in a 56-39 loss last Monday.

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Council Bluffs Lewis Central shot a blistering 61 percent from the field and outscored Glenwood 50-22 over the second and third quarters in a 79-42 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory last Tuesday.

    “They really shot it well,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte, whose team dropped its fifth straight game to end the regular season. “They got running on all cylinders and shot 61 percent for the game. Once they started hitting like that we’d have a hand in their face on defense and they’d still knock it down.”
