  • Second half surge lifts Rams

    Another slow start, another second half comeback for Glenwood.

    A week after sputtering to a 3-0 half time deficit before rallying for a 14-13 win, the Rams got down 14-7 on the road Friday at Dallas Center-Grimes before exploding for 22 second half points and a shutout on defense in a 35-14 victory in Grimes.

    Glenwood coach Cory Faust said he felt like this was the best game his 3-1 team has played to date this season.

  • Knights shut out Eagles for homecoming win

    Fremont-Mills sprinted out to a 40-0 first half lead and never looked back in a 68-0 victory over Clarinda Academy on Homecoming Night in Tabor Friday.

    The Knights (2-1) opened district play with the win over the Eagles thanks to its dominating run game and a defense that forced four turnovers and did not allow a point for the first time this season.

    With the homecoming festivities and his team jumping out to an early lead, Fremont-Mills’ Coach Jeremy Christiansen said he was happy how his team maintained their focus throughout.

  • Glenwood girls second, boys third at LC meet

    Two weeks to the day since running their last meet due to wet weather, the Glenwood girls and boys were back in action Saturday at a soggy Council Bluffs Lewis Central Invitational Cross Country Meet at Iowa Western Community College.

  • Wolverines improve to 3-0 in 55-22 win over Griswold

    For most football teams, 21 yards rushing on 20 carries is a recipe for disaster.

    Then again, most teams don’t have East Mills’ passing game.

    The Wolverines – who have averaged 280 yards passing with nine total touchdown passes in their first two games – were once again in rhythm throwing the ball Friday against Griswold even if their running game sputtered. Quarterback Michael Schafer tossed four touchdown passes and finished with 385 yards throwing as East Mills cruised to a 51-22 victory to improve to 3-0 on the season.

  • Rams hold on in 14-13 win over Kuemper Catholic

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Glenwood’s final drive netted them minus-13 yards and no points.

    And it was perhaps the Rams’ most important on an uneven offensive night.

    Nursing a 14-11 lead with 2:45 to go in the game, Glenwood ran six plays from its own 14, gained 12 yards and then lost them all when quarterback Zach Carr intentionally scrambled through the Rams’ own end zone for a safety to run out clock on Kuemper Catholic in a 14-13 victory in a game played at Council Bluffs Lewis Central Friday.

  • Wolverines improve to 2-0 in shootout victory

    In a game that saw the two teams combine for 112 points and nearly 900 yards of total offense, East Mills got the big plays in its passing game they needed in a 62-50 shootout victory over Lamoni Friday in Eight-person football.

    “We were a little more consistent this week than last,” said Schafer, whose team won their opener 42-0. “Our running game was almost non-existent but we hit some big pass plays. We didn’t get our running game going but we have a lot good receivers who are capable of stepping up.”
