Cardinals earn thriller over Palmer, 1 win at St. Ed tourney

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

The Harvard Cardinals earned their second win of the season in spectacular fashion Thursday evening in front of the home crowd against a Class C-2 opponent.

“With (Thursday’s) game being our home opener, I told the girls that this was our house,” Head Coach Kevin Medrano said. “We needed to play hard to protect our home court. The girls played the part. Our home crowd definitely added a lot of energy in to our game, cheering for us and supporting us point-by-point.”

Mustangs roll over Freeman 40-0

No. 3 Sutton blisters Falcons for 483 total yards Friday to improve to 3-0

BY TORY DUNCAN

Soggy field conditions, following a week of rain and cool temperatures may have slowed the Sutton Mustangs offense for the first quarter Friday night. Although, once the Mustangs gained traction, Sutton used a potent rushing attack and a stingy defensive effort to outscore the visiting Freeman Falcons 40-0 in the final three quarters of play. The Mustangs improve to 3-0 with the 40-point win at the final horn.

Despite the slow paced opening quarter for both teams, it would be the passing game that would help put the first points on the scoreboard for Sutton, as junior quarterback Jackson Perrien hit a wide-open senior James Griess on a 60-yard touchdown pass, at the 9 minute, 24 second mark of the second quarter, to lift Sutton to a 6-0 lead, following a missed twopoint conversion try.

Cougars split games in season-opening triangular

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

The Lady Cougars of Sandy Creek went 1-1 in the first triangular of the season, hosted at Sandy Creek with Wilber- Clatonia and Heartland.

Sandy Creek defeated Wilber-Clatonia in two sets, 25-16 and 25-15, but then fell to Heartland in two, 25-14 and 28-26.

“That first game the girls stated they were ‘nervous,’” Head Coach Josey VonSpreckelsen said. “It was our first game of the season and we had to get all of our jitters out. The difference between the first game and the second game was intensity. We played somewhat slower in our first game and became more confident and sped up our offense in the second game. The teams we played did very different things so we made adjustments throughout each set and got better each point.”

Southern Valley dashes hopes of Cougar win in opener

BY TORY DUNCAN

A 12-point run in the second quarter and a 16-12 second-half run by the visiting Eagles of Southern Valley High School would leave the 2018 Sandy Creek Cougars on the short end of a 28-18 Class C-2 bout Friday, Aug. 24.

The Cougars, after shaking off some early nerves on their third drive of the first quarter, would give Cougar fans a big excitement, when junior defensive back Connor Crumbliss put some thrill in the stands with a 45-yard pick-six interception return to lift Sandy Creek to a 6-0 lead at the 5 minutes, 37 second mark of the opening stanza.

#RestoreTheTradition

Sandy Creek coaching staff features some new faces that look to get back the Cougar football tradition

BY TORY DUNCAN

Jack Shadley and Cole Wiseman have a knack of knowing what each other is thinking. So when the opportunity came for the Doane University football standouts to teach and coach together after their college careers ended, they didn’t pass up the chance.

“We never once thought that we’d ever end up at the same school to start our teaching and coaching careers, but I guess, here we are,” Shadley said.

Many turnout for Deweese Demo Derby despite heat

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

As the temperatures outside grew hot, so did the dirt track set up for the 41st Deweese Demo Derby Sunday, Aug. 12.

The drivers had a large crowd as they took their positions on the make-shift track, engines running and tires ready to fling dirt.

With the countdown, the sounds of engines flaring up broke loose, with cars slamming into each other, causing dents, popping tires and spilling antifreeze.

In the first heat of the 90s and New Old School, the usual scenery explained above showed as it came down to the top two drivers—Heidi Ploen, of Lemars, IA, and granddaughter of Keith Hansen, and Deweese-resident Jared Brockman.
