Cedar Rapids Washington hands West second loss of this season

IOWA CITY– “We got our butts kicked.”
That was Coach Brian Sauser’s assessment of Friday night’s match-up between his West High Trojans and Cedar Rapids Washington at home. The Warriors pounded on the Trojans for a 66-37 win on senior night.
The Warriors began their first drive on West’s 47-yard line. Two first downs later, Washington was on the 7-yard line. The Trojan defense stopped them three times, but on fourth and two to go, the Warriors scored. Coupled with a good PAT, the visitors were up 7-0.

Drought continues

TIFFIN– The eighth week of the 2011 football season found the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers at home against rival Williamsburg. The Clippers last faced the Raiders in last year’s second round of the postseason playoffs. In that contest, Williamsburg ran over the Clippers, 65-35, in Williamsburg.
CCA held a 17-7 halftime lead, but a flurry of Williamsburg scoring dashed any hope of victory in a 52-24 loss.
The Raiders opened Friday’s battle by scoring first on a 65-yard fumble return coupled with a good PAT kick for an early 7-0 lead.

CEDAR RAPIDS– “Line” has been gone for two months, but losing her still shakes the West High girls varsity volleyball team to its core.
“It’s been a very emotional week” Coach Kathy Bresnahan said Tuesday night (Oct. 11) following West’s 3-0 domination of the Cedar Rapids Jefferson J-Hawks. “They’re sad, they’re angry, they’re frustrated… maybe they took some of that out on Jefferson tonight.”

Safer steps

JOHNSON COUNTY– Hip fractures sustained in falls can be the first slippery step in a downward decline for the elderly.
People who fall and break bones can become dependent on others for food and doctor visits. If confined to bed or unable to get around, overall health can quickly deteriorate when someone’s seemingly small injury affects general health, mobility and independence.
Seniors are especially vulnerable to the effects of falls, often cracking wrists, legs and hip bones that can break more easily as bones become more brittle with age.
