Creek Valley Rolls Over Hyannis 78-41

Creek Valley’s Storm Football team pushed their record to 3-and-0 with a convincing win on the road against the Hyannis Longhorns.

The Storm put up 32 points in the first half and continued to roll, with Hyannis only finding success in the fourth quarter when the game was out of reach.

“I was very proud of the defensive effort, and our starters held them to only one touchdown and forced a lot of three and outs. We need to continue to improve our blocking on offense, but we have shown that we can be explosive when we put it all together,” said Storm Head Coach Joe Kupper on the team’s performance.

The Storm is home on Friday against Maywood/Hayes Center.

Potter-Dix Falls to Sioux County 58-16

The Coyotes continued to struggle in 6-Man Football, traveling to Harrison on Friday night and quickly finding themselves in a 38-to-8 hole after the first quarter. The Coyotes were unable to score again until the game was out of reach in the fourth quarter, and dropped to 1-and-2 on the season.

Freshman quarterback Luke Kasten was limited to just 38 yards on four completions, gained 71 yards on seven carries, and had an interception in the loss. The Coyotes host Hyannis on Friday.

Peetz Stumbles Against Fleming 55-18

Peetz Head Coach Scott Sorensen identified the Fleming Wildcats as a team the Bulldogs needed to be ready for, and the Wildcats jumped on the visiting Bulldogs for 24 points in the first quarter on their way to a 55-to-18 victory.

The high powered Peetz offense only managed six points in the first half as they suffered their first loss of the season. Coach Sorensen summed up the effort by saying, “Too many turnovers against a good team like Fleming results in too many points to overcome.”

The Bulldogs fumbled four times in the loss. Peetz next faces Stratton/Liberty in Peetz on Saturday in the Bulldog’s Homecoming game.

We just need to keep practicing and minimize our mistakes, which is something that can be solved by repitition.”
