    As high school football schedules traditionally go, the homecoming date has typically been reserved for an easy victory for the home fans.

    Six points.

    A touchdown here, a couple of field goals there.

    That’s the sum total of the difference between Glenwood being potentially 4-0 and not its current 1-3 following Friday’s third straight close loss of the season in a 12-8 setback at Winterset.
