  • Rams trounce Tigers in season-...

    Ten plays.

    That’s how long it took Glenwood to exert its will on Red Oak in its season-opening football victory on Friday.

    The Rams marched 56 yards in 10 plays, all rushing attempts, capped by quarterback Corey Bertini’s three-yard plunge on the game’s opening drive, to go ahead 7-0 and cruise to a 43-13 victory before a reporter-estimated 400 at Ram Memorial Field.

  • Fright Knight

    MONDAMIN - On it’s disastrous first two plays from scrimmage Fremont-Mills netted four yards, two fumbles and a turnover.

    Then things really got bad. Four plays later West Harrison converted that turnover into a touchdown and then added four more scores off Knight first half giveaways en route to a 62-12 season-opening victory over Fremont-Mills in Mondamin on Friday.

    After winning the opening coin toss and electing to receive the ball first, the Hawkeyes jumped on the Knights and never seemed to let up.
