The West Central football team hosted Springville on Friday night in Maynard, falling 55-16. 

A quick start for Springville proved to be too much for the Blue Devils to overcome as WC trailed 27-8 after the first quarter and 43-8 at the half. The lone West Central touchdown came from a 49-yard interception return by Aiden Nelson.

The Blue Devil receiver added a second touchdown in the third quarter as he scored on a 45-yard pass from quarterback Adam Dolf. Springville, however, added two more scores of their own to create a final score of 55-16.

A mere point separated the NFV and South Winn varsity boys’ teams after running the Upper Iowa Conference Cross Country Meet on Thursday.

Turkey Valley was scheduled to host, but the recent heavy rains left the golf course in Jackson Junction in no condition to be used. Hence it was moved to West Union, which has the only course not on a golf course.

TigerHawk senior Chandler Douglas won with a time of 17:35.26. SW’s Paul Hageman was second in 18:12.25.

Overall, the top five Warriors finished second, third, sixth, seventh and 10th for a total of 28 points 

Meanwhile, Douglas, Caleb O’Hare, Weller Clark, Jesse Daughton, and Weston Fantz finished first, fourth, fifth, eighth and 12th, respectively. Had the score been tied through five runners, NFV would have won since Davan Crooker placed 13th and his SW counterpart was 17th.

One point heartache

NFV lost a one-point heartbreaker, 35-34, to the heavily favored Sailors of Waterloo Columbus Friday night in West Union.

  It was a seesaw contest all night, but missed PATs left the TigerHawks playing catch-up.

 NFV started on the wrong foot when it fumbled the opening kickoff, giving Columbus the ball on the TigerHawk 22. Four plays later, the Sailors scored to make it 7-0 with just 2:51 gone in the opening quarter.

700 runners invade WU

700 runners invade WU

 

 

 After the cross country meet Tuesday, Oct. 2, in Manchester was cancelled due to the weather, officials at NFV decided to schedule a home meet. It was necessary because the runners really needed the competition, particularly with the conference meet next Thursday.

The meet had to be organized in less than 48 hours because it had to be run on Thursday. It was open to middle school, JV and varsity (with JV and varsity running together).

Initially, 10 schools were expected, with many bringing runners for only one or two events.

It seems with the record-setting rains last month and carrying over to this week, a great many schools were in the same boat (seemingly an ark) as NFV, because meet officials had to turn away 22 schools to keep the event to a manageable 12.

NFV pounded out a workman-like 24-6 victory Friday against visiting Oelwein.

  After the Huskies opened the game by going three-an-out, the TigerHawks took over on the 50. It took NFV 13 plays to make the score 6-0 with 5:17 left in the first quarter. A 14-yard pass from Brooks Hovden to Mac Whelan set up a four yard TD run by Liam McIntyre.
