Ruining the Raiders’ night

Clear Creek Amana picks up 48-19 win on the road at Anamosa

ANAMOSA– The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers, under first-year coach Matt Hughes, picked up their third win of the 2013 season Friday night against the Anamosa Blue Raiders at Anamosa. The Clippers pounded Anamosa 48-19, improving their record to 3-4 with two regular season games left.

Booted!

West High suffers first 2013 loss, loses the Boot

IOWA CITY– It had to happen sooner or later. However, the West High Trojans probably would’ve preferred to suffer their first loss of the 2013 season after The Battle for the Boot.
The City High Little Hawks stymied and denied the Trojans with a 14-7 win Friday night at City, taking the golden Boot in the process. West captured The Boot last year in a 44-0 shutout at home, ending a City streak. The night started out on a promising note as the sophomores pounded out a 48-20 win.

Defensive

hawk talk

There is a reason that Michigan State is rated one of the best defenses in the country... they are really good!
The Spartans held the Hawkeyes to 23 yards on the ground, 13 first downs and Iowa had the ball for only 22:47 minutes. Also, the Hawks didn’t get a first down until about five minutes left in the first half.
Here we go again.
Last year at this time the Hawks were 4-2, 2-0 in the Big Ten and beat Michigan State, 19-16 in overtime.
This year Iowa is 4-2, 1-1 in the Big Ten and lost to the Spartans, 26-14.

Lady Spartans overwhelm Raiders

SOLON– The Anamosa volleyball team looked like a deer in the headlights.
The Solon Lady Spartans rattled off 10 straight points behind the serving of junior Taylor Nearad and never looked back, sweeping the Anamosa Raiders 3-0 in a conference match-up last Tuesday in Solon.
Nearad was a serving machine for the Lady Spartans, going 24-27 with 10 aces from behind the service line. No other Lady Spartan had more than seven serves.
Solon won 25-6, 25-12 and 25-6, with liberal substitutions throughout the match.

Big score

Spartans roll up 64-3 win over Anamosa Raiders

SOLON– It didn’t take long to see where this game was going.
Solon’s Jordan Wymer took the opening kickoff 97 yards down the Spartan sideline for a touchdown, and it was off to the races.
Moments later, Solon intercepted Anamosa quarterback Austin Seehusen deep in Raider territory. Two passes to Nathan Hawkins later, there was less than a minute elapsed on the clock, and Solon had taken a 14-0 lead over the winless Anamosa Raiders.
The Spartans rumbled to a 64-3 win Friday night, moving their record to 5-1 on the season, and an unblemished 3-0 in conference play.
