Football District Recaps and Breakdown


Sidney 56 East Mills 12

No doubter here.  It's a rapidly improving East Mills team and recent offensive changes have improved the offense but it doesn't make them any faster.  Tough to keep up with Sidney's deep and quick offensive onslaught.

Bryson Duncan again over the 100 yard mark for the Cowboys.  Cameron Whitehead completed 4 of 5 passes for 3 scores.  Brady Lorimor, Tate Thompson and Caleb Behrends all caught touchdown passes for the unbeaten Cowboys.

Nic Duysen caught five passes for 86 yards to lead East Mills.  Sidney makes the always dangerous trip to Woodbine in week seven.  The Wolverines will be heavily favored against Essex.


Fremont-Mills 54 Clarinda Academy 2

Six passes and six completions for Mason Vanatta to lead the scariest two loss team in the state.  Jaeger Powers carried nine times for 129 yards for F-M who will be favored from here on out.  Week 7 brings a tricky trip to play Elk Horn Kimballton on the road in a game that will more than likely decide a trip to the state tournament.

CAM 38 Essex 14

CAM wins the battle of two injury depleted teams.  Thomas Hensley was amazing again for the Cougars who improve 4-3 on the season.

Elk Horn-Kimballton 68 Woodbine 52

Neither of these two teams really likes to play defense, but they both like to score a ton.  Woodbine gives up 60+ for the fourth time this year (with Sidney on deck).  The Danes give up 50+ for the third time this season (with FM on deck).  Get out your abacus, these are gonne be some big totals.

The win keeps Elk Horn's post season hopes alive and they simply must beat FM Friday to have a reasonable shot.

Stanton 56 East Union 30  

Sixth straight win for the Vikings but the big news is injuries to both Dillion Rocha and Drake Johnson.  Add in Lenox on deck Friday night and you have a nervous week for the Vikings.

Good news for Stanton is Easton Hultman stepping up to pair with reliable Reece Anderson to handle the receiving duties.  Hultman pulled in three passes for 156 yards.  Anderson caught three for 90 yards.

The Vikings haven't beaten Lenox since 2011.
