    TABOR - Someone said long ago it’s not easy to beat a team three times in the same season.

  • Wolverines caged in 10-0...

    MALVERN - If “three yards and a cloud of dust” is as old of a football adage as it is passé in today’s era of the spread offense then Friday night in Malvern must have looked like throwback night.

    A-H-S-T and East Mills engaged in a good, old fashioned slug fest that featured a combined 93 rushing attempts as the Vikings rode the game’s lone touchdown to a 10-0 victory over the Wolverines to stay perfect on the season and seal up the top spot in Class 1A, District 8.

    For one game, the Fremont-Mills volleyball team showed defending nine-time champion Stanton it came to play in the Corner Conference championship match Thursday.

    “The girls came out like gangbusters,” said Fremont-Mills coach Tracy Malcom. “We went into this game driven. We say that before every game, and we were on as far as setting and hitting. We were sharp and polished. We were on target exactly where we wanted to be.”

    “This was a very up and down game for us,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen. “We overwhelmed them at times but we also had a lot of breakdowns here and there.”

  • Rams drop third straight

    Trevor Frain raced 55 yards for a touchdown on Creston’s opening play from scrimmage and Glenwood never seemed to recover in a 49-21 Class 3A, District 1 loss on Friday.    

    Creston (5-2) sprinted out to a 28-0 lead before Glenwood got on the board just before halftime to make it 28-7 at the break.

  • Oh, So Close

    Every football game comes down to one or two plays that decide a game.
