Trojans Move to Round 2
Beat Up BCL-UW 46-14

This is the playoffs and it is not suppose to be this easy, especially a
game between a 2 and 3 seed, but it was for the Turkey Valley Trojans
as they dominated BCL-UW 46-14; and it really wasn't that close.

Turkey Valley took control of the game early by forcing the Comets into
1-2-3-punt on the first possession of the game and promptly marched
down the field and scored a touchdown on a 4 yard run by Luke
Kuennen with 5:59 left to play in the first quarter.  Luke also added the
PAT and another TD a few minutes later.  Justin Kime would add a
couple of TDs as the Trojans built a 30-0 lead at intermission.

BCL-UW actually looked scared of the Trojans at times in the first half
and early in the third quarter looked like they gave up as TV scored a
pair of touchdowns with little resistance and built a 46-0 lead with 6:48
to play in the third quarter.  One of the touchdowns came on a 15 yard
run by Luke Kuennen and the other on a 2 yard run by Riley Meirick.

It was strange in away because once down by 46, we finally saw the
aerial show we expected out of BCL-UW as they scored 2 4th quarter
touchdowns with long pass plays setting up some short ones.

The game was played in almost ideal conditions for this time of year
with temperatures in the 50s, very little wind, and no rain.  The no rain
may have been the biggest surprise as it was predicted and we heard
from the Decorah radio station on our way to the game these words, "if
you are on your way to a football game, expect to get rained on"

The only disappointment on the night was the sparse crowd at the
Trojan field.  It was only the 12th time the Trojans have made the
playoffs and this game may have been the last 11-player game ever
played on the field, making you think you could expect a good crowd,
but it just didn't happen.

It is on to a Monday night football match-up on the road against the
district 4 champion squad from Galdbrook-Reinbeck.  
The game starts at 7 p.m.  Howard and Dandy Don will be there.  Hope
you can make it too!

The common opponents are BCL-UW & Postville.  Gladbrook-Reinbeck
beat BCL-UW 42-6 during the regular season and Postville 35-0 in the
first round, while TV beat Postville 42-27.
On paper maybe a slight edge to Gladbrook-Reinbeck, but TV as an
excellent chance to come away with the W.

As it has been all season,
this was a total team effort.
#44 Kyle Reicks
makes the catch
"The Boys" upfront controlled the line of scrimmage and
consequently, Turkey Valley controlled the game.
#62 is Jacob Hackman,
#50 Riley Busta, and #76 Charles Hadacek
#32 Jacob Buss gets the tackle
"He could go all the way"
#24 Jordan Denk almost went all the
way on a kick-off return going 75 yards
before being tackled inside the 10.

Luke Kuennen
6-4, 247
with 89 yards rushing, Luke went
over 1000 yards for the season and
now has 1012 with 18 touchdowns
#28 Justin Kime
scored twice and had 85 yards rushing
The defense shined holding a pretty good offense scoreless until
the 4th quarter when the game was already decided
On a night when the crowd was disappointingly small,
We salute those that were there
to cheer on the Trojans to Victory
"Real Comfortable Jeans"
#22 Eric Buckendahl
epitomizes the never quit attitude
of this year's team.  
On one play in the 2nd half Buckendahl on
defense at the time ran over 40 yards
from the other side of the field to chase
down a pass receiver that looked like
would be down long before Buckendahl
got there.  If Buckendahl just stood
around and watched,
the runner would have scored
comes into its game with Turkey Valley 8-2
and like the Trojans lost 2 non-district
games to Class 1A foes.  
Gladbrook-Reinbeck lost to Denver 17-13
and Dike-New Hartford, 49-27.  They own
an impressive 42-0 win over Grundy
Center and also have victories over
BCL-UW 42-6 and Postville in the first
round 35-0.  They were undefeated
district champions.

They are pretty big with 13 200 pounders
listed on the roster.  Other than Denver
and Dike-New Hartford no team has
scored over 10 points against them this

Chase Clark has rushed for nearly 2000
yards this season.  He has 1918 yards with
23 rushing touchdowns.  He is obviously
the man the Trojans must stop to secure
On offense Buckendahl
rushed for 100 yards even
