NFV gave up two long runs in the second half in falling, 34-26, at Monticello. 

This week is Homecoming, and NFV hopes the winless Huskies from Oelwein will be the perfect antidote for its early season stumbles.

Friday, the TigerHawks broke on top with a 10-yard pass from Brooks Hovden to Lance Butikofer with 4:24 to play in the opening quarter.

The teams traded touchdowns throughout a wild second quarter with NFV going into the halftime break with a 20-13 lead.

Monti scored on a short run midway through the third quarter to tie the game at 20-20.

Then, in a little over two-minute span, the wheels came off the wagon for the TigerHawks.

Injuries are mounting for the West Central football team after a 74-16 road loss to the Clarksville Indians on Friday, Sept. 8. 

The Blue Devils were already without senior running back Collin Kime, who was following concussion protocol. During the first half, West Central’s Tyler Buzynski left the game with what was thought to be a concussion and was taken to the doctor as a precautionary measure. Also getting dinged up was running back Taylor Hepperle, who did play the rest of the game. 

“We are beat up,” said Milder after the team's 13th straight loss. “We had four freshmen on the field in the fourth quarter. Taylor [Hepperle] took a helmet to the ribs and stomach, and we sent Buzynski to get checked out because we think he might have a concussion.

The Dick Pollitt Go-Hawk Classic in Waverly is one of the largest cross country races in eastern Iowa. It is also the most unique since it features races that match runners by grade rather than in straight team competition.

Tuesday’s (Sept. 5) race was run in 65 degree weather with winds at 17 mph.

“I always enjoy this meet,” stated NFV head coach Neal Bentley. “It gives our runners   a chance to compete head to head against runners of the same age in a large race setting.”
