Game of the Week Preview: OABCIG vs. Spirit Lake

Sports

For Week 2 of the Iowa high school football season, KCAU9 SportsZone’s Game of the Week is OABCIG vs. Spirit Lake.

The OABCIG Falcons come into Week 2 with a 1-0 record after crushing Ridge View 42-0 in their season opener. All-star QB Cooper DeJean torched the Raptors through the air and on the ground, racking up 435 total yards and six touchdowns in the win. DeJean’s biggest targets were senior Trust Wells (10 rec, 133 yds) and sophomore Griffin Diersen (100 yds, 2 TDs), so look for the Falcons to air it out again when they take on Spirit Lake.

As for the Indians, they suffered a Week 1 loss to the West Sioux Falcons, 14-7, so they’re looking to get a win against a different “Falcons” team. The Indians barely gained over 200 yards in their game against West Sioux, so that’s something that they’ll need to fix if they want to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole. But on the plus side, their defense was strong against West Sioux, getting six sacks, eight total tackles for loss, and three turnovers. If that production stays the same, they have a chance at slowing down that talented OABCIG offense.
