High School Football in week 5 in the area was one full of high drama to say the least. On “Sunny” 99.7 Friday Night, St. Edmond moved to 4-1 on the season. The Gaels edged out a win over rival Manson NW Webster in a double OT thrill ride in a game that was an “instant classic”. The game would be back and forth all night and at the end of regulation was tied at 25. Both teams would score in OT and fail on the conversions, so the game went to double OT tied at 31. Manson NW Webster would take the lead on a Brayden Johll TD run, Cougras would fail the conversion and would led 37-31. St. Edmond’s Sean Flattery would score on a TD run in the ensuing possession to set up this play.

On “92 Rock”, Fort Dodge had a valiant effort pushing #2 Urbandale to the brink before falling 42-28. It would take undefeated Urbandale until the final 90 seconds of the game to be able to score to go up 2 scores and ultimately ice the win. The Dodgers would not go away the entire night, which was evident when they pulled a “throwback” lateral on the kick return in the final 1:20 of the game to get into strong field position. Ultimately it was Urbandale Rb Tucker Langenburg that put them up for good with his 3rd rushing score of the game in the last 90 seconds. WR Tyler Schreier with 2 TD’s in the game, one receiving and one rushing. Javion Jondle had a TD catch to mark 3 straight games with at least one TD catch for the Sophomore. Kicker Gavin Schillerstrom made the first FG attempt of the season for Fort Dodge as well. The coaching staff showed inspired play calling and made tremendous halftime adjustments changing the pass protection in the 2nd half to allow more time to throw, which resulted in productivity in the passing game. Ultimately, the Dodgers fell just short here’s Coach Nik Moser’s post game reaction.
On 105-9 “The Beach” it was a highly anticipated game with District Title implications between two area schools in South Central Calhoun and Southeast Valley. The Jags would win 32-23 and get a standout performance from QB Kolson Kruse who accounted for 4 TD’s total, 1 rushing and 3 passing. The win for Southeast Valley broke a 30 game regular season winning streak by South Central Calhoun. Here’s Jags Coach Mike Swieter’s reaction.
