Shootout provides excitement, but not the outcome

After losing their first conference game earlier in the week, the Lions hoped to get back on track against Prairie….but a sub-par 1st half and wild shooting second half could not get the job done during the first 80 minutes.  2 10-minute golden goal overtimes also failed to produce a winner.  In the end, it took the feisty teams 6 shooters to provide a final result, 5-4 in favor of the P-Hawks.

Varsity drops 1st conference game

Last year, Linn-Mar beat Iowa City West for the first time in a long time (15 years). The Lions were hoping to get back to their early season ways with an explosive offense, suffocating defense, and sharp passing…but nobody told Iowa City West of these plans. The Trojans capitalized on their home field advantage, numerical superiority, and timely goals to give the Lions their first MVC/Valley loss this season.

Linn-Mar attack stifled, but find a way to win

Despite their differences in record, Kennedy traveled to Linn-Mar Stadium, and gave the Lions everyone they could handle. The two teams played a very competitive and physical game (in the middle of the field, and the Kennedy goalkeeper made save after save to keep the Lions off the scoreboard.
