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.

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.
