kansasNorth Shelby (3-5) 66 Kansas (4-2) 54

Kansas School for the Deaf was at North Shelby for their Senior Night and we brought only 11 players. During the first quarter, KSD played well and led 42 to 28. North Shelby is a very hard-hitting team. Unfortunately, during the second quarter, KSD players sustained some injuries. We started to collapse but still fought back. At halftime, KSD was down 66 to 54. I was very concerned about the injured players and asked the referees if it would be possible to play 6-man football for the remainder of the game. The North Shelby coach refused this request. So I decided to stop the game for the players’ safety. KSD has two more games this season and we didn't want to risk the players' safety. Unbelievably, KSD played two hours during the first half. Imagine if we played the whole game, it could have lasted for four hours. This was the first time we had a half last this long.

On Tuesday, October 10th, KSD will have a home game against Illinois School for the Deaf 4:30 p.m. We will dress just ten players for tomorrow's game because we lost two players due to grades and injuries. (Contributed by Head Coach William Richard Ward)

iowaOklahoma (1-4) 74 Iowa (0-4) 22

We had some improvements from past games. Offensively, Layne Guerrero led us with 430 all-purpose yards. He had 25 rushes for 306 yards, and two touchdowns. He also was 8 of 17 passing for 50 yards. He had a 74 yard kickoff return in the 4th quarter for a touchdown.

Defensively, Ben Brakke led the way with six total tackles, three unassisted. Brakke also had a pass deflection. Our tackles were even spread among everyone. Regardless, we still need to work on our tackling, as we only totaled 25 tackles, 14 unassisted.

We did hurt ourselves with turnovers again, giving away five this week. We did have a couple of sustained drives that stalled in the red zone, which could have given us some more points. Between the turnovers and the drives stalling in the red zone, we gave away potentially 40 points that we could have had on our side of the board.

We play the Missouri School for the Deaf next week for our Homecoming game. (Contributed by Head Coach Brent Welsch)
