GARNER — Clear Lake and Garner-Hayfield-Ventura face each other to open up play in Class 2A District 2 tonight in Garner. Both teams are 1-1 after dropping games last week. Lions coach Jared DeVries says he hopes his team bounces back from a tough second half against Webster City last week.

DeVries says they’ll have to defend against a balanced offensive attack led by two-year starting quarterback Ryan Meyers as well as running back Nick Joynt, who has rushed for 127 yards and had 13 receptions for 165 yards and three touchdowns this year.

MASON CITY — Mason City looks to bounce back from an 0-2 start as they host Fort Dodge in a non-district contest tonight. The Mohawks have not been able to get a win against the Dodgers since the introduction of the Decker Trophy, but coach Matt Berkley says he hopes his team will be able to take home the trophy tonight.

 

Berkley says his team has been working hard to improve after dropping their first two non-district contests to Clear Lake and Marshalltown.

You can hear the Mason City-Fort Dodge game on AM-1300 KGLO starting with the pre-game at about 7 o’clock tonight, with kickoff slated for 7:30.

 

 

MASON CITY — Newman hosts West Fork in the opening of Class A District 3 play tonight. The Knights are 2-0 after non-district wins over St. Edmond and Lake Mills. Josh Fitzgerald has led the way with 335 total yards of offense, with 217 rushing yards and six receptions for 118 yards. West Fork comes in with a 1-1 record after falling to Lake Mills in the season opener, followed by a 24-6 win over Central Springs last week. Lukas Wogen and Ian Gonzalez have led a balanced offensive attack, with Wogen throwing for 284 yards and Gonzalez rushing for 205 yards. You can hear the Newman-West Fork game on 93.9 The Country Moose starting with the pre-game at about 6:45 tonight.

AMES — If Iowa State cares more about the Cy-Hawk series than Iowa that is news to Hawkeye coach Kirk Ferentz. Saturday’s game in Ames will be the 40th since the modern series began in 1977 and it will be the 28th that Ferentz has been a part of as either an assistant or head coach.

“I kind of found that insulting in some ways”, said Ferentz. “It is almost like you don’t care and that is really insulting to say anybody who competes in anything. It is big for anyone involved with Iowa fottball and it is a great series.”

Ferentz says it is a rivalry with unique qaulities. It matches in-state foes from two different power conferences and is played early in the season. Second-year Iowa State coach Matt Campbell says the Cyclones have made this game a priority.

“We have got a lot of respect for them and their program”, said Campbell. “But it is a big game and a big rivalry football game. It is something we talk about the majority of the year and put a lot of emphasis on it.”

Iowa has captured three of the last four games in the series, including a 42-3 win in Iowa City a year ago. Hawkeye sophomore tight end Noah Fant knew little about the series while growing up in Omaha but it did not take long his freshman year to discover how big the rivalry is.

“When we actually got into game week I understood that this is big”, said Fant. “Having that experience going into this year I am really looking forward to it.”

Iowa leads the all time series 42-22.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Twins’ Jorge Polanco drove in the go-ahead runs off ailing Kansas City closer Kelvin Herrera with two outs in the ninth inning, and Minnesota rallied to beat the Royals 4-2 on Thursday night.

Herrera, who has been dealing with a mild forearm strain, inherited a 2-1 lead before giving up a pair of singles and a walk. Brian Dozier hit a tying sacrifice fly, and after Joe Mauer was walked intentionally, Polanco lined a single up the middle for the lead.

Trevor Hildenberger (3-2) earned the win with a scoreless eighth in relief of Twins starter Kyle Gibson, while Matt Belisle handled a perfect ninth to pick up his sixth save.
