    A week after rallying from a double-digit deficit in the second half, the Glenwood football team did it again Friday.

    Trailing 12-0 heading into the final quarter, the Rams scored on touchdowns of 72 yard and 75 yards in the frame to complete a road comeback over Carroll in the district opener.

    “The grit our guys showed was outstanding,” said Glenwood coach Cory Faust.  “Despite us not really playing our best, particularly on offense, the guys hung in there and found a way to win in the end.”

  • Glenwood wins Hawkeye 10 opener

    The Rams (6-4 overall, 1-0 in the conference) won the match 25-21, 25-15, 25-10.

    It was a non-district game filled with drama, but mistakes ultimately did in Fremont-Mills in a 42-35 loss at Stanton Friday.

    “I think both teams had the advantage multiple times during the game,” Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christensen said. “I think our turnovers killed us. Both teams played extremely well at times, and both matched that at the other end.”

    Fremont-Mills had six turnovers – a lost fumble and five interceptions. Stanton also had six turnovers, with three interceptions and three lost fumbles.

  • Lessons to learn in Wolverines’...

    Youthful errors, players in different positions, and a skilled, athletic opponent from Stanton led to a 36-0 season-opening defeat for the East Mills football team Friday in Malvern.

    Despite the loss, the Wolverines – without a senior on the roster – began to hold their own physically as the game wore on.

  • Rams open season with shutout

    It’s hard to imagine the Glenwood football team getting off to a better start than it did in Friday’s opener against Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln.

    The Rams scored on its first possession of the game, then its next four series and led 32-0 before the Lynx had amassed a single offensive yard or first down en route to a 45-0 victory.
