    TABOR - The Fremont-Mills football team turned the ball over four times and could muster just 47 yards of total offense in a 48-0 loss to Treynor in Class A, District 8 football Friday.

    “We talk all the time, if we don't turn the ball over we have a chance to win ball games. It's been our M.O. all season, we've turned it over way too many times,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christensen.

    Treynor (7-1 overall, 5-1 in the district) turned two of the Knights' four turnovers into first-half touchdowns and allowed just nine yards rushing on 22 carries.

  • East Mills runs past Sidney in...

    SIDNEY - East Mills coach Andy Irwin said it wasn’t the rain Friday night that diverted his usually pass happy offense into running the ball 27 times in the second half and passing just four times.

    Whatever the reason - and for the record, Irwin said it was mostly a halftime adjustment to emphasize the run in the second half - it’s hard to argue with the Wolverines’ success. East Mills rushed for a 168 yards and Jake Bolton threw for two scores all after halftime to hang on late for a 26-22 victory over Sidney in Eight Man, District 8 football on Friday.

    Spencer, a 2005 Glenwood Community High School graduate has come a long way.

    “They made it a struggle for us,” said Glenwood coach Brian Albert, whose team dropped to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the district.
