Indianola Football Hosts Glenwood
The Indianola football team takes on Glenwood tonight to continue non-district play, matching up with the 1-0 Rams. The Indians survived a frantic comeback attempt by Ankeny Centennial in their 26-20 win last week, after they took a 26-7 lead with just four minutes remaining in the contest. Head coach Eric Kluver said the Indians as expected had some big plays through the air, but it was the running game that opened up the offense.
“I still think we need to run the football. The more we are able to establish the running game, we have outstanding receivers and a great quarterback, the run game working will be able to open our playbook more and more.”
The game will be broadcast live on 94.3 KNIA, as well as on the Indianola Activities YouTube channel, with pregame starting at 6:30pm, and kickoff at 7:30pm.
