For the third straight season, the South Winn football team (0-3, 0-3) wasn’t able to match Wapsie Valley (2-1, 1-0) in size and speed, dropping Friday’s contest, 27-0, on the road.
“Our kids performed with a solid effort. We had a hard time managing Wapsie Valley’s team speed, especially in the second half,” said Coach Jason Ohrt. “We had our chances to put us in a good position offensively in the first half but couldn’t convert. I couldn’t be happier with how our special teams units played. Coach Izer did a great job of putting in a punt block scheme this week and Aiden Feickert executed his assignment well, blocking two punts.”
