Good Night to Be Red

If you're a high school basketball coach you would love to have 7
players score in the first quarter, but a football coach would hardly
think it was possible.  

It happened on Homecoming Night, The Turkey Valley Football team
had 7 players score in the first quarter to build a 32-0 lead on its way to
a 62-8 win over East Buchanan in front of a huge homecoming crowd.

More importantly it was the third district win in a row for the Trojans
who now stand on top of the Class A District 3 tied with only #2 ranked
Wapsie Valley an easy 62-0 winner over North Butler.

Despite the big lopsided win by the football players the night
belonged to Tierney Lensing who was crowned 2013 Turkey Valley
Homecoming Queen winning out over the other two candidates Allison
Kuennen and Noelle Berst.

She joined King Eric Buckendahl who was named earlier in the week.

For good measure, Buckendahl started off the 32 point first period
with a touchdown run less than 2 minutes into the game.

The other 6 joining Buckendahl in scoring first quarter points were
Luke Kuennen, Ryan Busta, Riley Meirick, Jacob Buss, Justin Kime,
and Jordan Denk.  

Three other players, Brogan Mihm, Blake Busta, and Justin Hackman
would score later in the game giving Turkey Valley a grand total of 10
different players who scored points.

Trojans had a 56-0 lead at the half and played the entire 2nd half with
2nd and 3rd string players on offense.  The continuous clock was
implemented the entire second half.

With 3 district games down and 4 to go and only 2 unbeatens left it is
now time to think of the Trojans as a legitimate contender for the
District Crown.

They have a meeting with Wapsie Valley in 2 weeks on the home
gridiron which looks to be the game that will settle the district
championship this season unless one of them stumbles next week.

Turkey Valley is at North Butler to play a team that spoiled the Trojan
Homecoming a year ago.

Next Week Wapsie Valley plays North Linn at home.  North Linn is

50+ years of Turkey Valley Queens and Kings
Coach Mark Scott

"The offense did a great job of executing.
We had 11 players carry the ball and two
others with receptions"

"We played well. "

Special Teams-

"We continue to improve in all aspects of
the game.

We played well and the young players
received some playing experience.
East Buc was a young team with some
injuries. We play North Butler at Greene
next week in a crucial game for us in
district play.

A compliment to the grounds crew, the
field looked great and the opposing
coaches commented on what great shape
the field was."
