 NFV finally got its running game fully untracked as the TigerHawks ran right over Anamosa, 26-8. 

The game was moved to Thursday night due to the condition of the field in Anamosa and the possibility of heavy rain or strong storms in the area on Friday.

 “We knew it would rain,” stated NFV offensive coordinator Travis Wymer at the Coach’s Roundtable Saturday morning. “The big question was when. A delay is hard on a team, but it really gets hard when you start, then have the delay, especially since Anamosa’s field is on the edge of town about two miles from the school.”

  It did rain Friday, as the Waukon game at nearby Monticello had to start an hour late.

 NFV went into the game with seven players not suiting up. 

  “We really had to make some adjustments during the week,” noted Wymer. 

 Thursday’s game was scoreless for over 12 minutes. Both teams managed first downs but neither could cross the goal line. 

One NFV drive was stopped by an interception and Seth Meyer ended a Raider advance with a sack.

However, NFV would score three times in the second quarter to take a commanding 18-0 lead into the locker room at the half.

The 2019 season has been a tough one thus far for the young South Winneshiek volleyball team as the Warriors fell to 0-13 last week, including a 0-29 mark in individual sets.

North Fayette Valley

The team began the week Tuesday, Sept. 10, at North Fayette Valley. The Warriors went down in consecutive sets, 25-9, 25-23, and 25-21. Individual statistics were not available at press time.

Turkey Valley

On Thursday evening, the Warriors took on Turkey Valley in Jackson Junction. South Winn fell by scores of 25-19, 25-15, and 25-15. 

“I don’t think the score really reflects how close this battle felt. The Warriors put up one heck of a fight,” said coach Glenna Munuswamy after the loss. “We had a lot of great attacks that were just missing. This was by far our best play this season. If we can find the kind of intensity we have against our rival for every match, we’ll start to see some success.”
