    PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. – Highway 34 bragging rights for southwest Iowa were settled Friday night in Nebraska.

    Yes, Nebraska.

    WOODBINE - A lot of good, a little bit of bad.

    That’s how Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen would describe his team’s 50-20 season-opening victory over Woodbine Friday in Eight-Man football.

    NORWALK - It was too much Taylor Good and too little offense for Glenwood in its Class 4, Region 7 semifinal on Saturday.

    Norwalk’s sophomore pitcher limited Glenwood to three singles, fanned nine and faced just four over the minimum in a 5-0 victory that ended the Rams’ season.

    “She was tough,” Glenwood coach Mark Starner said. “We only saw about five pitchers like her all year. We don’t see enough pitchers like her. She was tough on us all night.”
