FOOTBALL FRIDAYS FOR THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8, 1994 Week number two of the high school football season goes into full gear Friday night as four more area high school games will highlight the Kalona News area. Mid-Prairie will host Medlapolis in their home opener at Sattler Field in Weilman, Highland-Lone Tree will host Wapello in the Highland home opener, Sigourney-Keota will host Camanche at the Bowl in Slgourney and English Valleys will host Clear Creek-Amana at North English. So, you could say that it is "Host Night" throughout the Kalona News area Friday night. Here is a look at each of the four games Friday night: Mid-Prairie vs. Medlapolls The Golden Hawks are trying to put behind them a 54-14 loss to Class 3A's Washington last weekend. The Bulldogs are in the same situation as they fell to Class 2A's 7th-ranked team, Sigourney- Keota, 39-8 last weekend at home. The crowd will not only to be treated to what should be a bone- jarring contest at Sattler Field but will also get to see the Iowa State University Marching Band in action as they prepare for Saturday's Iowa- Iowa State showdown in Iowa City. The Cyclone Marching Band will perform at halftime of Friday's game. The Golden Hawks and Bulldogs will be meeting for the first time ever on the gridiron Friday night. This will be Mid-Prairie's final pre- district tune-up before Albia comes to town next weekend to kick off the 1994 Class 2A District 8 season. "We need to work on some defensive things this week in practice," Golden Hawk co-coach Jim Cayton said. "We need to get some mechanical things done and make ourselves better as a team. We will take what they give us Friday night. We just need to take of ourselves this week and let what happens happen. We should be ready come Friday." There will not be a junior varsity ballgame Friday night as they will be playing Monday night at Mediapolls. Kickoff for Friday's game is 7:30 p.m. with the kickoff for Monday's J.V. game set for 6:30 p.m. Highland-Lone Tree vs. Wapello The Raiders will be moving down a class as they take on perennial Class 1A power Wapello Friday night at Highland. Highland-Lone Tree will be nursing some injuries from last weekend's 41-12 loss to Louisa-Muscatine. Countryman expects some good defense from the Indians Friday night. "They must have done something right to shut down Tri- County last weekend," Countryman said. "It is never easy to shut a team out. Otherwise, I really don't know much about them yet." Wapello comes into Friday's game with a 1-0 record after beating Tri-County 6-0 in their season opener last weekend. It will be the final pre-district tune-up for the Raiders as they open Class 2A District 6 action at Lincoln-Clarence Lowden next weekend. There will not be a junior varsity game Friday night at ttighland. Kickoff for the varsity game is 7:30 p.m. The next J.V. game is set for next Friday at Lincoln-CL. ( Slgourney-Keota vs. amanche In what could be a classic running game for both teams Friday night at the Bowl in Sigourney, the Savages will try and move to 2-0 on the season as they open their 1994 home season against Class 3A Camaacbe. Sigoumey-Keota rolled up 275 yards rushing against Mediapolis last weekend in their season-opening win and you can expect more of the same from Bob Howard's team Friday night. The Indians, fresh off a 6-0 overtime loss to Fulton, Illinois, will try and even their mark Friday night. Camanche will be led by John Naeve, who was one of the leading rushers in Class 2A's District 6 last fall. This will also be the final pre- district tune-up for the Savages as they open their Class 2A District 8 season at home next weekend against Colfax-Mingo. There will not be a junior varsity game Friday night. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. The Savage J.V. team played Mediapolis Tuesday night and will play Tri-County of Thomburg next Tuesday night. Both games are at the Bowl. English Valleys vs. Clear Creek-Amana Curt Ritchie's Bears and Randy Mathews' Clippers hope to even their marks Friday night as the 1994 home season opens at North English against Clear Creek-Amana. The Bears dropped a 6-0 heart-breaker against Williamsburg last weekend while the Clippers fell to second- ranked Class A's Iowa Valley 54-0 last weekefid. "They looked big size-wise on tape," Ritchie said. "I think anyone would have been intimidated by playing Iowa Valley. They are a very strong team and I am sure Clear Creek-Amana will be more intense coming in here Friday night." There will not be a junior varsity game before Friday's varsity game. Fish nleasantlv surnrised with first meet results for Ea21es. Ladv Ea21es .w Mark Hostetler may have the beginnings of a large-sized juggernaut on his hands as his Iowa Mennonite boys and girls cross country teams won both the IMS Earlybird and Pella Christian meets last week. In the words of Jim CalTCy in the movie 'q'be Mask", they were "s-s-s-s-smokin!I! F'.

On the boys side, a 20-place move by Brian Miller was the difference. "The top four guys ran really well," Hostetler said. "I wasn't surprised with that. However, I was concerned when I was counting the places midway through and didn't even see Brian,, who is our fifth man, for a long time. I knew we were in trouble there." Miller though came rolling back in the second half of the meet and wound up 20th overall, which won the meet for the IMS boys. "His move won it," Hostetler said. "He ran a great second-half of the race. He knew what he needed to do and he did it. We might have been third or fourth in the meet if he gotten those 20 places back." Tmvis Cummings of Van Buren may have won the overall meet with a 16:55 but IMS's boys were the team champs by a 73-78 count over BGM. Huerta headed the pack with an llth-place finish, Fleming was 13th, Randy Ho was 16th, Miller was 20th, Potsander was 22nd, Roetlin was 36th and Hostetler wound up 55th. As for the girls, the pack running style of ]MS gave them a 31-39 win over Fairfield for the meet title. "I was surprised with the girls in that they beat Fairfield," Hostetler said. "I knew that they had it in them to beat everyone else but they turned it up a notch to beat Fairfield. The big difference for them was that Annika fmished so ht~. They all ran well though and I think they are headed for some big things." Dickel led them overall was she was fourth (Fairfield's Beth Brooks was the overall champion).
