Slow start, but TigerHawks roll, 28-7

 

Football is a simple game of blocking and tackling. Here, NFV gets yards on the ground as (l-r) Trey Kuhens (47) and Jesse Mackey (44) blow their opponents off the line. Meanwhile, Brandon Wolfe (55) gets enough of a shoulder on a Viking defender to prevent him from making a tackle as Tanner Kuhens (20) slides through the big hole for some of his 117 yards in Friday’s 28-7 victory in Decorah.

Football is back in northeast Iowa!

However, it wasn’t a very pretty debut for the West Central Blue Devils, who turned the ball over six times en route to a 59-20 loss to the Springville Orioles on Friday, Aug. 19.

It took the Orioles less than two minutes to score on the opening possession of week zero’s matchup. The three-play drive was capped off with a 13-yard touchdown run by Cavanaugh Riley. He took the shotgun snap and ran the option left, faking the pitch, which froze Brady Forsyth long enough for Riley to evade him for the score.

This month the Volga River Recreation Area (VRRA) will be host to 100 different kinds of beasts, including lions, tigers, bears and hippos, as the Rinehart 100 Archery Tour returns to the area.

Last year the tour drew over 620 people to VRRA during its maiden visit to northeast Iowa.

That visit was so successful (second-highest attendance on the tour) that the R100 returns this year.

Some things will be the same, including two different trails, each over a mile long and filled with 50 3-D targets supplied by Rinehart Target of Janesville, Wis., the acknowledged leader in the field.
