Back to back completions by Kleinhesselink would result in a pair of scores for a second time in the ball game. The first was a 38 yarder to Tyler Lode and the second a 50 yard strike to Tyler Merley. Following the second score it was 33-7 Orabs with 9:46 left to play.

A defensive score came next. Following a completion in the flat Phil Cain stripped the receiver and went 33 yards for the score. The kick was good and Sheldon was up 40-7 with 8:59 to go.

Northwest Iowa — Week five of the season finds Sheldon on the road at Rock Rapids. The Orabs come in at 3-1 and 1-1 in the district following a home loss to Boyden Hull Rock Valley. The Lions are 1-3 and 1-1 in the district after a home win over Estherville Lincoln Central.

As always the Lions are a physical team.

That’s Orab Head Coach Tyler Lloyd. The coach adds that turn over margin will be key Friday night and the Orabs have some other goals as well.

Central Lyon George Little Rock Head Coach Curtis Eben is impressed with the Orabs size on both the offensive and defensive lines.

Eben feels control of the line of scrimmage will be the big key.

The Coach Kory Roos and LA will bring you season long coverage of the Orabs on KIWA AM 1550.

 

Coming off a road win at Sheldon last Friday Boyden Hull Rock Valley will take a 3-1 overall record and a 2-0 mark into their home game against Pocahontas Area Laurens Marathon at A.R. Hesla Field. The Indians are off to an 0-4 start after a road loss to MOC Floyd Valley.

Nighthawks Head Coach Corey Brandt Sees the Indians as a team that is improving from week to week.

Brandt says the goal for tonight is to play a complete game.

Indians Head Coach Mike Ehn feels the Nighthawks are a team with a lot of weapons but the challenges start with team speed.

Time of possession for the Indians and keeping the Nighthawks big plays to a minimum with be important.

Inwood, Iowa — The 1A #1 West Lyon Wildcats were able to outlast the 2A #2 Nighthawks 35-28 at Jay Rozeboom Sports Complex Friday night.

The Wildcats controlled the first half and jumped out to a 21-0 lead, and by halftime it was 28-7 West Lyon. The Wildcats added another touchdown in the 3rd when Micah Meyer punched it in from 2 yards out and made it 35-7 midway in the 3rd quarter.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley then put on the pressure. Following a big punt return, JT Van’t Hul scrambled into the endzone from 1 yard out to make it 35-14 West Lyon. Following a West Lyon fumble on the ensuing drive, Elliott Van Kekerix scored from 17 yards out on the catch and run, pulling the Nighthawks to within 14. West Lyon then turned the ball over on downs and Elliott Van Kekerix again found the endzone on the next drive, this time from 2 yards out, but, West Lyon was able to manage the clock, get some key first downs, stop a late Nighthawk drive and come away with the 35-28 victory.

Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley falls to 1-1 on the year, and opens district play in Rock Valley next Friday against Estherville-Lincoln Central.

West Lyon improves to 2-0 on the year and takes on Okoboji for their district opener next week.
