HS FOOTBALL: North Linn And East Buchanan Ready For Annual Meeting

By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

Two of the six unbeaten KMCH area coverage high school football teams will meet this Friday night in week 3 play. The North Linn Lynx will host the Buccaneers of East Buchanan in a Class A district 4 opening contest. East Buc outscored their first two opponents, Jesup and Sumner Fredricksburg 62-12, while North Linn also tallied 62 points in wins over North Tama and Jesup allowing just 6 in week one. Buccaneers fourth-year head coach Jerry Alden says a different mindset takes hold come district time:

EB who claimed the district crown a year ago won the match-up last season, 42-8 in Winthrop. Lynx head coach Jared Collum expects another hard-fought contest:

The Bucs have won the last 2 games in the series before that North Linn won the 4 meetings dating back to 2011, including the last Lynx victory which occurred on October, 17th 2014 at North Linn. The kick-off near Troy Mills is slated for 7pm tomorrow night.
