In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet girls basketball team opened up their season at third ranked Clear Lake. The Comets were over-matched and trailed 42-11 at halftime and the game ended with the Lions on top 57-16. The Comet girls basketball team begins their season at 0-1 and they will have their next game Monday at home against Garner-Hayfield-Ventura.
The Nashua-Plainfield Husky girls basketball team also opened up their season last night as they hosted Tripoli. After trailing by four after the first quarter, the Huskies lost pace and were outscored 26-8 in the next two quarters and wound up losing the game by a final score of 57-31. Libby Fisher had 14 points to lead Nashua and Britney Holthaus had 13. The Husky girls are 0-1 to start the year and will play again Tuesday at Rockford.
The Saint Ansgar Saints girls basketball team picked up a win in their season opener last night as they defeated Riceville 62-25. Jadyn Anderson had 21 points to lead the Saints and Molly Jenkins and Elizabeth Jenkins each had 12. Saint Ansgar’s girls are 1-0 and will have their next game on Tuesday at Central Springs.
Iowa State Cyclone head football coach Matt Campbell says running back David Montgomery will play on Saturday when the Cyclones visit Kansas State. Montgomery suffered a leg injury in a 23-13 win at Baylor. Campbell says he will know more about quarterback Kyle Kempt when the Cyclones return to practice. Kempt missed Saturday’s game with an injured shoulder.
Redshirt freshman Zeb Noland made his first start at Baylor.
Campbell says they have confidence in Noland if he is the starter at K-State.
Iowa State is 7-4 and a key has been limiting mistakes. The Cyclones are the least penalized team in the country and have yet to lose a fumble this season.
Like Iowa State the Wildcats have been forced to use several different quarterbacks due to injury. Redshirt freshman Skylar Thompson led the way in an upset win at Oklahoma State.
Campbell says it is not surprising to see the Wildcats fight through adversity under coach Bill Snyder.
