Area 2014 football schedules
March 9, 2014 - Troy Banning
The Iowa High School Athletic Association released the football schedules for the 2014 and 2015 seasons on Friday. Week 1 of the 2014 season will be Friday, Aug. 29; the IHSAA announced there will be no Week Zero games this fall.
Webster City’s 2014 slate features four home and five road games. Head coach Bob Howard’s squad will play three of their first four away from Lynx Field.
Here’s a look at the Lynx Class 3A slate:
Aug. 29: at Gilbert
Sept. 5: at Clear Lake
Sept. 12: Carroll
Sept. 19: at Algona
Sept. 26: Greene County
Oct. 3: Iowa Falls-Alden
Oct. 10: at Humboldt
Oct. 17: Perry
Oct. 24: at Boone
The good news: Webster City was granted non-district games against its top two priority programs – Clear Lake and Iowa Falls-Alden. The Lynx will also square off with Gilbert for the third consecutive two-year cycle. Howard will also like the fact that the third non-district game against IF-A doesn’t occur in Week 9.
The bad news: Playing away from home in Weeks 1 and 2 is somewhat unorthodox. In the past, the IHSAA has always made those two non-district games a split of home and away. Also, facing Clear Lake and Carroll in back-to-back weeks is somewhat daunting.
South Hamilton’s 2014 1A schedule is as follows:
Aug. 29: Roland-Story
Sept. 5: at West Marshall
Sept. 12: at Madrid
Sept. 19: Manson-Northwest Webster
Sept. 26: Ogden
Oct. 3: at Woodward-Granger
Oct. 10: Woodward Academy
Oct. 17: South Central Calhoun
Oct. 24: at Fort Dodge St. Edmond
The Hawks non-district opponents include Roland-Story, West Marshall and Woodward-Granger – all either current or former Heart of Iowa Conference rivalries.
For years South Hamilton scheduled games against Roland-Story and West Marshall, so this won’t be unfamiliar for the program.
Northeast Hamilton’s 2014 8-man schedule includes:
Aug. 29: at CAL
Sept. 5: Colo-NESCO
Sept. 12: at Adair-Casey
Sept. 19: Ankeny Christian Academy
Sept. 26: at Coon Rapids-Bayard
Oct. 3: East Union
Oct. 10: at Murray
Oct. 17: Guthrie Center
Oct. 24: Glidden-Ralston
Northeast Hamilton will face Iowa Star Conference rivals CAL and Colo-NESCO in non-district contests.
