Waukon football team begins Class 2A State Play-Off journey with 46-16 rout in windy, snowy, cold opening-round game at Clear Lake

Indians will travel to New Hampton this Friday for rematch in quarterfinals

Neither wind, nor cold nor the dark-uniformed Clear Lake Lion defense that has not given up more than 14 points in any of its previous seven games could stop the Waukon football team from delivering itself to the quarterfinal round of the Class 2A State Play-Offs with a 46-16 rout of the host Lions in the opening round of the season grand finale series Friday, October 27. Temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, winds blowing between 20 and 30 mph definitely pushing wind chills below that freezing mark, and a steady dose of snow showers may have lopsided the Indians’ usually balanced offensive attack, but the 371 yards the Indians gained on the ground, compared to just 97 through the air, proved to be more than enough to fuel a 46-0 headstart the Indians gained through three quarters on the way to the victory.

The winner of this Friday’s quarterfinals match-up will advance to the Class 2A semifinals to be played in the very facility that Weymiller now calls his football home, the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls. That semifinals contest will be played Saturday, November 11 at 4:06 p.m. against the winner of the Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley (9-1) vs. South Central Calhoun (9-1) quarterfinal match-up also being played this Friday in Hull.
