    TABOR – It was a happy homecoming for Fremont-Mills Friday night as the Knights rolled to a hard-fought 45-34 victory over CAM.

    Quarterback Jason Rusten passed for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Knights improved their record to 2-1.

    “They (CAM) were everything we expected,” Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen said. “Physically, I thought we were able to handle them. Defensively, I thought we played well until we’d have a blown assignment.”

    A-D-M edged Glenwood 48-38 in a wild, Class 3A District 1 match up that saw both teams combine for more than 900 yards and 12 touchdowns Friday in Adel.

    For Glenwood a little too much Tiger offense proved the difference.

  • East Mills stays perfect with 41...

    East Mills’ Logan Currin threw for a career-high 289 yards and four touchdowns while the Wolverine defense held Riverside to just 30 yards rushing in a 41-7, Class A District 9 football victory Friday.

    “We knew this would be a physical, athletic team and kids wanted to come out and make sure we made a statement early,” said East Mills coach Andy Irwin.

    With the Bulldogs determined to slow the Wolverines’ running game, they loaded the box. Currin,  the East Mills signal-caller, was ready.

  • Glenwood 2-0 after 38-13...

    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.

  • Knights get first win of...

    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.”

    Tanner Porter had the smile to match the twinkle in his eyes.

    “Tanner was a very kind, kind young man,” said Glenwood Community High School guidance counselor Kathleen Loeffelbein. “He had a beautiful smile and this twinkle in his eye. He made other people’s day brighter. He was a beloved student. He knew a lot of people and touched so many people with his kindness.”

    Porter, 17, died Thursday at the University of Nebraska Medical Center following injuries he suffered in a one-vehicle accident north of Glenwood.
