Wapsie Wins

There are plenty of ways to analyze and plenty of spots to second
guess and even a few places where you could say if this happened the
outcome may have been different, but the bottom line is Wapsie Valley
beat the Turkey Valley Trojans 21-6 in a battle of 2 undefeated District
foes to take over sole possession of first place in District 3 of Class A
in Iowa football.

However, by the performance of the Trojans they proved they can play
with anyone in their class this season in football.  After all, Wapsie
Valley is the defending state champion in this class and remain
undefeated this season and with the ball bouncing just a little
different a couple of times, Turkey Valley may have been able to pull
this one out.

Wapsie Valley did fumble twice, but both times the ball bounced right
back to the player running the football instead of a Trojan.

The Trojans did have a couple of balls picked-off when they were
attempting passes down field into a strong wind that would have been
difficult for Peyton Manning to throw in to.

All points in this game were scored with the offensive team going with
the wind; 6 by Turkey Valley in the first quarter and 21 by Wapsie Valley
in the 2nd and 3rd quarter.

When the Trojans finally did get the wind back at its back in the 4th
quarter they were only able to run a handful of plays as Wapsie ran the
clock out.

To the surprise of many, Turkey Valley was in control early in this game
with the defense holding the high scoring Wapsie Valley offense to
few yards during the Warriors first 2 series.  

Turkey Valley mixed it up pretty good with runs inside and outside and
a pass or two to score the first points of the game on a 3-yard run by
Luke Kuennen with 1:24 to play in the first quarter.  The TD was set-up
by a long run by Jordan Denk off the left side, when Jordan seemed
stopped behind the line of scrimmage, but turned the burners on to
take the ball inside the 5.  It was one of the few runs for Jordan on the

The Trojans really did not threaten to score again the rest of the night,
as for the most part the much bigger Wapsie Valley squad controlled
the line of scrimmage.

It was all rock-em-sock-em football as the Warriors put together 3
scoring drives; 2 in the 2nd quarter and 1 in the 3rd quarter employing
almost exclusively a rushing attack and were aided by a couple of
interceptions on long Trojan passes down field into the wind.

The 4th quarter came and went so fast that if you went to the bathroom
prior to it starting you probably missed it.

Wapsie controlled the ball and ran the clock out and the only TV
possession of the quarter ended with just under 4 minutes to play,
when the Trojans elected to punt, trailing by 2 TDs rather than going
for it on 4th and long and never had the ball again the rest of the night.

When you take into account that Wapsie Valley came into the game
averaging over 60 (not a misprint) points a game in district games,
holding them to 21 is quite an accomplishment for the Trojans.

So now we are down to 2 games in the regular season and Turkey
Valley must win them both (next week @ Postville and the following
week at home against EdCo) if they want to host a playoff game as the
second seed or even the #1 seed if Wapsie should fall, which is

Coach Mark Scott

Offensively-"We moved the ball early but
after that we struggled to get a drive
sustained. A mixture of the wind and
Wapsie's size and speed made scoring
difficult. Kyle Reicks being unable to play
had a definite impact on our offense.
Wapsie controlled the ball with their
running game limiting the number of
snaps we had on offense."

Defensively-"I thought our defense
played well. We had to make adjustments
to our game plan when Kyle was out. We
did not allow Wapsie to get the big
offensive plays that they were used to

Comments-"The wind hindered what we
needed to do on offensive in the 2nd and
3rd quarters. It did help us early in the
game to control field position.
Our  players played hard. This was a hard
fought game. We were in the game until
the end. Wapsie converted a big 4th down
play in the 4th quarter that allowed them
to run the clock out.
We play  at Postville next week. Postville
only has 1 district loss. This could be the
battle for second place in the district. We
will have to play well to clinch the #2 spot
in the district."

Senior Jordan Denk
used his speed to get outside in the first
quarter taking the ball inside the 5 setting
up the score that gave TV the lead, 6-0.
Denk had 26 yards on just 2 carries!
Somewhere in there Luke Kuennen is powering his way forward for
the first and only score for The Trojans.  TV took a 6-0 lead on this play
with 1:24 to play in the first quarter, but wouldn't get close to the end
zone the rest of the night
Three of the men responsible for holding Wapsie to 40 points below
its district average.  
#77 Riley Bucheit, #40 Luke Kuennen,
and #33 Brogan Mihm
As they have all year, The Trojans swarmed around the ball on defense
If seeing a photo of this hit is making your
head spin and makes things blurry, just
think how the ball carrier felt!
Hope there was a shovel close by to scoop up this BS!
Junior Tyler Sawyer
had 15 tackles to help hold down the
state's top rushing offense and #2 scoring
machine to just 21 points
