NFV runs through SW
To the Dome!

Kuehner, Mackey run 56 times for 447 yards

By Jerry Wadian

North Fayette Valley is going to the UNI-Dome for a state semifinal football game in its first year of existence. The TigerHawks will face top-ranked Iowa City Regina Saturday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m. in Cedar Falls. Regina is 12-0 and riding a 54-game win streak.

To get to the Dome, NFV used its bruising running game to defeat South Winn, 49-14, in the quarterfinal game Friday, Nov. 8, in West Union.

The TigerHawks won the initial meeting, 44-34, in the memorable, lightning-delayed, game earlier in the season.

The weather was also bad in the rematch as the wind whipped from the southeast at 25-35 mph. Fans didn’t mind, and it was a full house in the Steve Story Athletic Complex.

Winning season for Peacocks

Beat WSU, 23-21
Winning season for Peacocks


By Jerry Wadian

Upper Iowa football assured itself of its first winning season since 1999 when it defeated Wayne State University, 23-21, Saturday, Nov. 9, in Wayne, Neb.

The win also marks the first winning season for the team since moving provisionally to DII in 2003. UIU was granted full DII membership in 2005 and joined the NSIC in 2006.

Current head football coach Tom Shea joins Paul Rudolph as the only winning football coaches since 1966!

The Peacocks were sluggish in the first half, trailing WSU, 13-0 at one point in the second quarter. UIU’s first score of the half was a safety by Jordan Andera. The South Winn alum blocked a Wildcat PAT kick and ran it back 98 yards for two points.

Upper Iowa added a TD of its own in the final minute of the half to trail by five, 13-8, going into the second half of play.
