iowaIowa (1-4) 76 Missouri (1-4) 54

We defeated the Missouri School for the Deaf (MSD) today during our homecoming game 76-54. After a back and forth first quarter and MSD taking a 20-14 lead early in the second, we took control and didn't look back. We led 42-28 at halftime, and was up 70-42 at the end of the third quarter when MSD asked for a running clock.

We had 630 yards total offense, 592 yards on the ground. We were again led by Layne Guerrero working out of the shotgun. He had 34 carries for 576 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was also 3 of 9 passing for 38 yards and a touchdown to Jayden Kohl. Kohl was our leading receiver, catching all three of Layne's passes. Most of Guerre’s rushing yardage were out of passing plays when Missouri covered everyone and left him wide open to just take off and hurt them with his legs.

Guerro also led us with 28 total tackles, including 10 quarterback sacks. With those sacks, he had 18 unassisted tackles to go with 10 assists. Ben Brakke followed up his best game last week with another great game today, with eight unassisted tackles and 13 total, including a quarterback sack. As a team, we had 14 quarterback sacks, with Jayden Kohl, Cory Jacobson, and Nathan Weigel each adding another one. Kohl was quite busy at the safety position, having seven unassisted tackles, including the quarterback sack, eight total tackles, as as well as three pass breakups. Damien Holste also held up his side of the field at the safety position, racking up six tackles total, three unassisted, and a fumble recovery. As a team, we had 41 unassisted tackles (including the 14 quarterback sacks), and 29 assists, for 70 total tackles. It was our best tackling effort this year. We did miss some tackles, and that allowed Missouri to score, but I can say that we pretty much made them work for their points.

We are now 1-4, and host Kansas School for the Deaf Thursday, October 19th at 4:00 p.m. for our last home game. The game time is a change from the original 4:30 kickoff time, in order to beat potential darkness. I know we have our work cut out for us with Kansas, but today's game gives us a confidence booster for the last two games of the season. (Contributed by Head Coach Brent Welsch)

michiganSuperior Central (3-5) 62 Michigan (0-6) 7

It was homecoming weekend at the Michigan School for the Deaf and we had our game against the Superior Central Cougars. We knew they were going to be a big challenge for us. It was a rainy wet day on the field but our guys played with lot of obstacles, one of our biggest obstacle was to play with only eight men on the field with no subs.

Our player of the game were Aaron Richards with 120 rushing yards, one touchdown, and one PAT field goal. We haven’t had a field goal kick in a long time. On defense, our player of the game was Aaron Richards with 11 solo tackles and four assists. Jason Thoune with seven solo tackles and two assists.

Wisconsin and Minnesota’s other football battle for the ax

By Dan Plutchak

minnesotawisconsinDELAVAN – Wisconsin sports fans are familiar with the football rivalry between the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the Minnesota Gophers.

The trophy is Paul Bunyan’s ax, which has resided in the state of Wisconsin every season since 2004.

But there’s another Wisconsin-Minnesota football rivalry that will battle for a different ax on Saturday.

kansasKansas 68 Illinois 0

Kansas Coach Ward was thrilled to see both of these teams compete again in football. Illinois School for the Deaf, which is only four hours away, has 21 good-sized players with great speed. That weather on game day was very cold and rainy making the field very muddy. KSD brought 11 players to the game. There was no score during the first quarter as ISD did a great job stopping KSD. They scouted us at North Shelby (one hour from ISD). The dismal weather did not stop our passing weapon. However, the boys dropped the ball several times during the first quarter. The second quarter, KSD started to score some points and the score at halftime was 40 to 0 in KSD’s favor.

The final score of the game was 68 to 0, KSD. Coach Ward is so proud of the boys who fought hard during the game. On Thursday, October 19, KSD will play against Iowa School on the road at 4:00 p.m. Presently, KSD has 5 wins and 2 losses. Coach Ward is proud of the boys who have had to work even harder due to just having 11 players. He says that the team should be called “Survival 11”. It reminds him of when Gallaudet University's team was called “Dirty 30”. (Contributed by Head Coach William Richard Ward)

coloradoColorado @ Genoa-Hugo

Genoa-Hugo (4-2) and Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind (0-6) take on one another this Thursday at 4:00 PM on Genoa-Hugo's home turf. Genoa-Hugo has seen its point totals steadily rise over the past three games, a trend the team will no doubt hope to continue.

Genoa-Hugo can now show off four landslide victories after its game last week. The final score between it and Edison last week was a 73-25 blowout in Genoa-Hugo's favor. Senior Caid Smith was a defensive powerhouse in the win and ended up with 16 total tackles. Smith has been a consistent playmaker for Genoa-Hugo as this was the 6th good game in a row from him.

As for Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, there's no need to mince words: it lost to Hanover last week, and it lost bad. The score wound up at 53-0. Things were already looking bleak at the break as Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind was down 53-0.

The last time they met, Genoa-Hugo really took it to Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, winning 68-14. Unfortunately for Colorado School for the Deaf & Blind, another blowout is expected given the large disparity in their rankings.

washingtonWashington vs Oakville

Washington School for the Deaf (2-2) and Oakville (3-3) take on one another this Thursday at 3:00 PM on Washington School for the Deaf's home turf. Oakville will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Washington School for the Deaf defense that has allowed an average of 32 points per game.

The state rankings speculated that Washington School for the Deaf might be blown out last week, and the rankings were right on the money. There's no need to mince words: it lost to Naselle last week, and it lost bad. The score wound up at 60-14.

Meanwhile, Oakville is still under.500 but has been making strides to fix that in its last two games. It came out on top in a nail-biter against Taholah last week, sneaking past 38-36.

The last time they met, Oakville got past Washington School for the Deaf 38 - 20.

mississippioklahomaOklahoma vs Mississippi

Oklahoma School for the Deaf is five games into its season, but it hasn't met anyone harder than the team challenging it next. This week, it faces off against Mississippi School for the Deaf on Thursday at 11:00 AM. Mississippi School for the Deaf will be looking to take advantage of a struggling Oklahoma School for the Deaf defense that has allowed an average of 42 points per game.

Oklahoma School for the Deaf crushed Iowa School for the Deaf last week, winning 74 - 22. Oklahoma School for the Deaf's offense might have been extra motivated to turn things around after difficulties scoring in its previous game.

As for Mississippi School for the Deaf, it can now show off three landslide victories after its game last week. It dominated last week, steamrollering Georgia School for the Deaf 56-6. At 50 points, that marked Mississippi School for the Deaf's largest margin of victory so far this year.

Their wins bumped Oklahoma School for the Deaf to 1-4 and Mississippi School for the Deaf to 4-0. We'll see which team can carry over its success and which team inevitably falls when Oklahoma School for the Deaf and Mississippi School for the Deaf clash.

michiganMichigan vs Superior Central

Superior Central (2-5) and Michigan School for the Deaf (0-5) go head to head this Saturday at 1:00 PM. Superior Central has seen its point totals steadily rise over the past three games, a trend the team will no doubt hope to continue.

The final score between Superior Central and North Dickinson last week was a 62-6 blowout in Superior Central's favor. Meanwhile, Michigan School for the Deaf received a tough blow as it fell 66-50 to Wisconsin School for the Deaf.

The last time they met, Superior Central really took it to Michigan School for the Deaf, winning 68 - 22. Superior Central had a lot of yards that game (541) and will likely be setting its aim high again. The rematch might be a little tougher for it since the team will be on Michigan School for the Deaf's home field this time.
