it’s a Thriller

Wow.
Now, that was a finish.
It was down to the wire for the Solon Spartans Friday night in a 27-17 win over Maquoketa, a game much closer than the score would indicate.
Having taken the lead early in the fourth quarter, Solon was backed up deep in its own territory and forced to punt nursing a 21-17 margin. The Maquoketa Cardinals had the ball just on Solon’s side of midfield with about six minutes left in the game.
A touchdown, and only a touchdown, would give the Cardinals the game.

Pumpkin Patch library display dedicated to Don Ochs

SOLON– It’s Halloween eve, and scarecrow and Mr. Bones are decorating the cornfield with bright streams of orange and black crepe paper. Gaily colored lanterns swing from the corn stalks, and a bonfire sends strange shadows against the moon. Garlands of bittersweet twine around the old cider press, as the apples turn into spicy cider. The smell of pumpkin pie drifts on the smoky wind. A crow perches on the Book of Spells, as a giant owl sits silently in the shadows watching pumpkin man roasting hot dogs for the party. A haunted mirror hangs on the old barn door reflecting the festivities.
