Glenwood Comeback Falls Short, Cyclones Win Heavyweight Bout

     The Glenwood Rams (3-1, 1-1) are no strangers to being down late in the game. “The Kardiac Kids” almost did it again, but in the end, the Harlan Cyclones (3-1, 2-0) walked away from Ram Memorial Field with a 17-14 victory.

     It was a defensive battle, a coaching chess match and a dog fight until the final whistle. Glenwood Head Coach Cory Faust was impressed with his team’s effort, even if it was a losing one.

     “I thought it was a good effort,” he said. “I mean, Harlan’s got a good team, so I don’t doubt our guys’ effort at all.”

    Week three of high school football was full of surprises in District 7. A blowout win for Harlan over Creston, and two games decided by less than four points made for an exciting opening week of district play. The Glenwood-Harlan game is obviously our game of the week selection, and the full preview of that matchup can be found here. But while all you Ram fans perform your gameday-eve rituals (whatever those may be) in preparation for tomorrow night’s battle here in Glenwood, let’s take a look at the rest of the action around the district:

     The Glenwood Rams (3-0, 1-0) have revived the classic 1980 Cleveland Browns’ nickname “The Kardiac Kids” for the time being. After a come-from-behind win last week over Thomas Jefferson, Glenwood found themselves in the same position last night against the Carroll Tigers (1-2, 0-1). The Rams stormed back from 12 down with just eight minutes remaining, scoring 13 unanswered to close out the game, stealing a 13-12 road victory.

    Now that we have had a “warm up” in the 2017 season, it’s time to get down to business. Non-district play is finally over, and there are some intriguing match ups on the slate for the opening week of district play. Since the Glenwood-Carroll game is seemingly highly anticipated, the full preview and predictions for that game can be found here. On another note, here is what other action we will see around District 7 this week:

     The 2-0 Glenwood Rams will travel up to Carroll to take on the 1-1 Tigers in a week three district opener on Friday night. If there is one team the Rams are familiar with at this point, it’s the Carroll Tigers. In fact, in his postgame interview following Glenwood’s comeback win over Thomas Jefferson last week, senior quarterback Andrew Blum pointed out the familiarity these two teams have with each other when asked about their week three matchup.

     “We’ve seen a lot of Carroll these last couple years, that’s for sure.” said Blum.

    The Glenwood Rams walked away from Gale Wickersham Stadium tattered, worn out, but victorious nonetheless. After a shaky start, and a 14-0 deficit at halftime, the Rams decided they had had enough of the Thomas Jefferson Yellow Jackets. With the help of a few Jacket miscues, the Rams hung 24 unanswered points in the second half and avoided the upset with a 24-14 victory over TJ to remain undefeated on the season.
