For one half of football it was a happy Homecoming for the Kee football team, but a halftime lead of 26-22 was eroded away by turnovers and depleted squad numbers in the second half to ultimately play out to a 66-26 Kee defeat against Dunkerton Friday, September 22. The Hawks battled a ninth opponent on the Eight-Man football field, as the heat and humidity of Friday began to take its toll on the Hawks in the second half, where four of their six possessions of the half were ended by turnovers and they were outscored by a 44-0 result.

Falling to 1-4 on the season, 1-2 in Eight-Player District 3 play, the Hawks are next scheduled to travel to undefeated and top-rated Don Bosco in Gilbertville this Friday, September 29. The Dons are the defending Eight-Player State Champions and come off a forfeit victory this past Friday at Central Elkader, a team that could not field enough players due to injury to play its Homecoming game against Don Bosco. The Dons have averaged just under 70 points per game in their four games they have played on the field so far this season.
