Friday, September 22 proved to be a happy Homecoming for the Waukon football team, as the Indians took out their frustrations from their season’s first loss a week earlier on a visiting Waterloo Columbus team with just one win to its credit so far this season. After playing to a 16-0 headstart through the first quarter, the grid Tribe took advantage of an abundance of golden opportunities to erupt for 35 points in the second frame on the way to a 51-0 halftime lead that would stand at a 51-7 Indian Homecoming victory after Columbus managed its lone tally late in the ballgame.

“Columbus is a school that had that one win against winless Oelwein, so that is the sort of game kids can overlook,” Waukon football coach Chad Beermann said. “Coming off last week’s tough loss, you add another concern. We had a good week of practice, and the kids did exactly what they needed to for a win.”
