The Warriors picked up their fourth win of the season Friday night in Calmar as they defeated the Huskies of Nashua-Plainfield, 38-16.

“We came out with a nice balanced attack on offense and were able to establish the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball,” said SW coach Jason Ohrt. “Our offensive line protected our quarterbacks well all night and we were very efficient throwing the ball as Jacob Herold and Nick Holien completed over 80 percent of their passes.”

Sophomore quarterback Jacob Herold got the Warriors on the board first in the first quarter as he scrambled into the end zone on a 23-yard run to give SW a 6-0 lead.

 NFV lost a pair of UIC games last week because of  slow starts. 

Tuesday, Sept. 25, the TigerHawks lost to MFL/MM, 25-12, 25-19, and 25-18, in Monona. 

Friday, conference-leading Central/Elkader came to West Union, walking off with a 25-15, 25-21, 19-25, and 25-18 victory.

In Monona, the Bulldogs played well. According to co-head coach Jared Tilleraas, “We got off to a slow start, and MFL/MM put us in a hole with a strong all-around game. We just didn’t respond well enough, quick enough.”

After having two meets last week rained out, as well as the scheduled meet in Jesup on Tuesday, Sept. 25, the TigerHawks managed to get into the 26-team meet Thursday in Epworth.

“We’ve been rarin’ to go, like racehorses in the gate,” commented head coach Neal Bentley.

The boys’ team received a boost when Chandler Douglas was finally able to compete. The senior was the only medalist for either varsity team with his fifth-place finish in an excellent time of  16:54.

 Last week in West Union, Anamosa had a first-and goal at the NFV 7 with just over 50 seconds to play. The TigerHawks came up with three sacks in four plays to end the threat.

  This week in Monticello, the Panthers stunned NFV with a 14-yard pass for the winning TD with just 34 seconds left in the game.

 It was an even contest throughout with the two teams trading touchdowns.
