Kandace Damgar, Jacquelyn Cline Lead Mustang Girls Past Stewartsville 39-32

Kandace Damgar had 19 points and Jacquelyn Cline had 16 more as the Mustangs took an 11 point halftime lead, then held off Cardinal attempts to get back in the game. They each had three 3-pointers in the game. The boys had nine in their game, which meant that the boys and girls teams had 15 three-pointers combined Monday night.

The Mustangs punched their ticket to Northwest with the win. They face DeKalb Wednesday; the Tigers faced an improved West Nodaway squad, but swarmed and pressed the rockets to come away with the 52-19 win. They were the runner-up in the tournament last year, falling to Northeast Nodaway.

North Nodaway was decimated this year as they lost six seniors to graduation and saw two of their key cogs go down with injuries, but they were able to use a strong second quarter to take a 23-12 lead at the half.

Ryan Riley, Mustang Boys Rain Threes on Trojans

It was raining threes in Union Star Monday as the Mustang Boys ran away with the first round game of the Platte Valley Invitational 65-22. They rained nine threes on Union Star, as Ryan Riley had five, and four other Mustangs had at least one. They took a 23-5 lead after one and never looked back, leading 37-12 at the half.

Ryan Riley had 21 in the win. Tyler Bix and Karson Oberhauser had 11. Andrew Blackford and Austin Bird had 9, while Wyatt O’Riley had 4.

The Mustangs had their game with North Harrison postponed. They draw their archrival West Nodaway Wednesday in Northeast Nodaway Wednesday. North Nodaway punched their ticket to Northwest on Friday with the win after having gotten to the title round last year.

Bluejays Lock Down Osborn, Advance in Platte Valley Invitational

Northeast Nodaway’s boys played lockdown defense on Osborn in the first round of the Platte Valley Invitational Monday night, getting the 44-23 win. The Tuesday before, they had dropped a 46-44 heartbreaker to Albany. But they responded by turning up the defensive intensity against a much-improved Osborn team, which had dwelt in the cellar the last few seasons, but stands to improve a lot this year.

The Bluejays got 22 tips and 18 steals on defense and only allowed one shot down the court when Osborn did get a shot at the basket, allowing only one offensive board for the game. Osborn led Northeast Nodaway 9-6 early in the second quarter when Samuel Dorton cut inside for a basket. But then Northeast Nodaway’s depth began to tell, as they ran 10 different players in and out, and they could have run in more if they had wanted to. Nine different Bluejays got tips, eight got steals, and twelve different Bluejays got boards.

The momentum swung after Mitchell Sherry got a pair of free throws and Ben Boswell got back to back steals to put the Bluejays in front 13-9. Up to that point, Boswell had struggled, but he got going offensively for the Bluejays, putting up 16 points for the night. Osborn played suffocating defense all night long, forcing 23 Bluejay turnovers. But Northeast was able to use it against them, getting long possessions on offense and forcing them to play defense for long stretches of time. One such possession occurred at the end of the first half, when NEN milked the last two minutes of the clock. There were a couple of broken plays during the sequence, but NEN still hung onto the ball, and finally got the ball to Ben Boswell on the right wing  for three off a kickout from Drew Wiederholt with 5 seconds left to make it 18-11 at the half.

As Osborn went scoreless through an 11 minute stretch in the second and third quarter, Northeast finally got Auston Pride untracked in the second half; the Wildcats were fronting him in the post and stealing any entry passes in the first half, but the Bluejays finally started getting him the ball in the second, and he wound up with 10 points for the night.

The Bluejay lead grew to 25-11 before Osborn, extending their pressure, finally got a steal and a three point play to break their scoring drought to make it 25-14. Northeast turned the ball over several times against the pressure of the orange shirts, but also got some good transition looks as well, getting a transition basket from Pride to end the third, a free throw from Mitchell Sherry to start the fourth, and a triple from Ben Boswell off a kickout pass from Auston pride to make it 31-14.

Osborn, which has nine players listed in the roster, but only dressed out six, put up a valiant effort to stop the bleeding, but saw Braxton Gibson foul out with five minutes left in the game, which opened the floodgates. Lane Dack got a drive to the rim and then hit Ben Boswell for three to make it 40-18. Dylan McIntyre, a freshman, got loose in transition against the orange shirts twice as the third stringers held their own against Osborn’s starters.

For NEN, Ben Boswell had 16 points, Auston Pride 10, Mitchell Sherry 7, Dylan McIntyre 5, Reed McIntyre 4, and Lane Dack 2.

Auston Pride had 2 blocks and Mitchell Sherry 1.

Twelve different Bluejays got rebounds. Auston Pride had 8, Mitchell Sherry 7, Nathan Schieber 4, Drew Wiederholt and Dylan McIntyre 3, Ben Boswell and Reed McIntyre 2, and Lane Dack, Ethan Adwell, Rory Bredlow, Brendon Deardorff, and Colton Swalley 1 each.

Ben Boswell had 3 assists. Mitchell Sherry, Drew Wiederholt, Reed McIntyre, Auston Pride, Rory Bredlow, Lane Dack, and Zach Pride all had 1.

Ben Boswell had 7 tips on defense. Auston Pride had 5, Nathan Schieber 3, Reed McIntyre 2, and Drew Wiederholt, Mitchell Sherry, Rory Bredlow, Boston Adwell, and Zach Pride had 1.

Eight different Bluejays had steals. Mitchell Sherry had 6, Ben Boswell 3, Nathan Schieber, Reed McIntyre and Auston Pride 2, and Rory Bredlow, Dylan McIntyre, and Ethan Adwell 1 each.

Obituary -- Annabell Brown 1930-2019

Funeral Services for Annabell Brown will be Sunday, December 1, 2019 at 2 PM at the Cummings Family Funeral Home in Bedford, Iowa. Visitation will be held 1 hour prior to the service. Interment will be held at Rose Hill Cemetery in Blockton, Iowa. Memorials may be given in her name to a charity of choice. Cummings Family Funeral Home was entrusted with the arrangements for Mrs. Brown. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at the Cummings Family Funeral Home website under Obituaries.

Annabell (Campbell) Brown passed away on Wednesday November 27th, 2019 at the age of 89. Annabell was born on June 8, 1930 in Redding, Iowa to Oren E. Campbell and Kathryn P. (Garity) Campbell (both deceased). Annabell was the 3rd of 9 children: Margaret Hays (deceased), Pat Campbell (deceased), Betty Fordyce, Oren Jr. Campbell, Robert (Bob) Campbell, Kathy Sixkiller, Linda Auger (deceased) and Cherri Fergeson.

Annabell attended school in Redding, Iowa. After High School she ventured to Colorado with a friend and spent a year working as a nanny for a family that owned a turkey farm. She met Laverne Brown the day she returned to Iowa. Laverne had driven his friend Harold Norris to the train station in Creston, Iowa to pick up Harold’s wife’s sister and her friend (Annabell). Laverne asked her out on a date on that same day. Their first date was a trip to St. Joe Missouri to take a load of cattle to the stock yard in his new truck. They were married almost a year later on March 12, 1948.

She was a true farmer's wife and worked beside Laverne farming the land and raising chickens, cattle, hogs and sheep over the years. She loved caring for all the animals, and watching the deer and birds on their farm they lived on just east of Bedford, Iowa. She looked forward to the family all being home and always cooked more food and pies than you could ever eat. She really enjoyed it when everyone came to the farm for big family reunions or just stopped by to talk. Annabell fondly remembered the times that her and Laverne spent with family and friends, traveling, camping with the Good Sam’s Club and at the Iowa State Fair.

Annabell is survived by her husband of 71 years, Laverne Brown; sons, Tom and Dan and his wife Peg; daughter Judy and her husband Alan; grandsons Thomas (Sonia) and Jake; granddaughters, Tara (Cory) and Kaley (Byron); great-grandson Dallas; great-granddaughters Clarke and Malin.
Annabell was preceded in death by sons Gary and Johnnie.

We would like to extend a sincere Thank You to all of our family and friends for your help and kindness. It has meant more to us than you will ever know.

Multiple Records Fell During Panther Season

One national record and multiple state records fell during the course of Pattonsburg’s season this year. Just five years into existence, Pattonsburg has won two District Championships and a GRC Title.

They went from eating peanut butter sandwiches to community members, businesses, and parents feeding them full meals each week before games.

This year, the communities of North Harrison, Pattonsburg, and Gilman City helped fund the camp in South Dakota, raised money for a new blocking sled, and raised funds for capes to keep the players warm on cold nights.

Steven Willhite’s 93 touchdown passes this season was a national record. The following state records were also broken:

Passing yards, season – Steven Willhite, 5,425.
Total yards, season – Steven Willhite, 6,175.
Total touchdowns, season – Steven Willhite, 112.
Total passing touchdowns, career – Steven Willhite, 163.
Total catches, season – Patrick Cowley, 154.
Passing touchdowns, season – Patrick Cowley, 37.
Total team offense – 78 points per game.
In addition, Cowley’s 2,097 yards receiving is 2nd in Missouri.
