    There is always that one make or break, must win game for each high school football team throughout a season. Sometimes it comes early, sometimes toward the end of the year, but it’s almost inevitable. Well, for Glenwood (6-1, 4-1), that game is tomorrow night. The Rams will host Winterset (5-2, 4-1) with a playoff ticket on the line. Both teams are tied at second place in the District 7 standings behind Harlan (6-1, 5-0),  who likely clinched a district title with their 7-6 victory over Winterset last week.

Both Glenwood and Winterset are sitting at 4-1 in District 7. Luckily this match-up is happening on Friday night.

     Head Coach Cory Faust was happy with his team’s performance. “Our thought our guys played really well,” said Faust. “I know Creston’s record makes it easy to overlook them, but they have some really good players”
