Things start to heat up in week 3 of the High School football schedule with many teams starting District/Division play.
In class 4A...one of the most interesting match-ups in the MVC will be played in
Iowa City with West hosting Kennedy. Trojans and Cougars are the
only undefeated teams in the Mississippi Division. West has
outscored its opponents 116-32 and Kennedy is coming off a nice 4th qtr
come-from-behind win at Prairie. After nearly pulling off the upset
over Top 10 Cedar Falls in the opener...City High got back on track with a win
at Waterloo West in week 2. Little Hawks head back to Black Hawk
County Friday night for a date with 0-2 Waterloo East.
Class 3A...Solon has one last non-district match-up at Mt Pleasant. Spartans
will look to reignite an offense that was shutout by Regina last week against
an 0-2 Panthers squad that's given up 86 points in two outings.
The 'KXIC Game of the Week' is a good one out of Class 1A-District 6 with #1 Regina entertaining West Branch. After shutting out Solon the Regals are riding
a 44-game winning streak with Marv Cook taking on his former coach Butch
Pederson. Bears are 2-0. Mark Pitz and Jody Krueger will have the call starting at 7:00.
I have the broadcast night off so I'm heading to Saints Field for the
Xavier/Prairie contest. I have the West/Prairie game in week 4 so I wanna
get another look at the Hawks after seeing the Trojans take care of Washington
last week. I also wanna get a look at #2 Xavier. Saints and Trojans don't meet in the regular season.
Don't forget...after the Regina/WB game KXIC will air WMT's scoreboard show live from 10 to midnight. Andy Petersen and MVC Commish Randy Krejci will have all the scores and breakdowns from Friday's action in Eastern Iowa. Then on Saturday morning Jason Miller has a complete recap of the area teams...and
reaction from the head coaches. The Coaches Corner starts live at 8:00 am from Midtown Family Restaurant in Iowa City.
For those of you attending games Friday night...you may actually need a jacket in the second half. Could happen.
