Struggling Cougars fall to PV Spartans

It’s an uphill struggle to say the least for a team to spot the other side 21 points after just one offensive play and expect to win a game.

On homecoming night Friday at Kingston, Kennedy gifted Pleasant Valley three quick touchdowns on a fumble, a busted defensive play and a kickoff return.

The Cougars tried to come back. But it was too little and too late and they fell, 40-28, for their fourth straight loss of the season.

“We just dug ourselves too big of a hole,” said first-year Kennedy Coach Brian White. “It’s been the story of our season. We keep shooting ourself in the foot. We beat ourselves.”

The game wasn’t a minute old when the Cougars’ coughed up the ball at the 25-yard line and the Spartans’ Nate Elsey-Williams ran the recovery back for the first score.

No.1 Saints brace for No.3 Solon

The Xavier Saints reached the Class 4A championship game in 2012 and 2013, so some people have anointed them the favorite to win the 3A title this year after dropping down a class despite heavy graduation losses.

The Saints will find out where they really stand Friday night after hosting the third-ranked Solon Spartans.

Xavier whipped then-No.5 Davenport Assumption, 30-6, last Friday. Another convincing victory over Solon might prove the point.

Solon reached the semifinals of the Class 3A playoffs last year and snapped Iowa City Regina's 56-game winning streak this season, 29-28.

All eyes will be on Saints Field in the Class 3A District 4 opener for both clubs.

All eight Metro football teams will be in action Friday night. The Washington Warriors, ranked No.3 in Class 4A, will be hosting Iowa City West at Kingston Stadium. All of the other Metro teams are on the road.
