Waukon football team takes two more steps toward State Play-Off bid with 50-35 delayed triumph over Union and 62-22 home rout of Oelwein

The Waukon football team took a pair of steps forward toward a State Play-Off berth within the same week, as the gridiron Tribe began and ended this past school week with victories against Class 2A District 4 opponents to all but solidify a berth in this year’s Class 2A State Play-Offs. The Indians’ first step this past week got its start Friday, October 6 in a game against previously district-undefeated Union at the Upper Iowa University football stadium before storms suspended that game to Monday, October 9, when the Indians finished what they started with a 50-35 defeat of the fellow Class 2A top-10 rated Knights to leapfrog over them into District 4’s runner-up spot.

The grid Tribe then returned to its regular schedule just four nights later to take another bold step forward, routing Oelwein by a 62-22 final result Friday, October 13 to remain one victory away from a most probable State Play-Off berth with anywhere from a Class 2A District 4 championship or runner-up finish for automatic play-off qualification to a third-place district finish that would likely result in a play-off wild card berth.
