Sheldon Orabs 2Sheldon Iowa — The Sheldon Orabs opened the season with a 20-12 non-district win over Sibley Ocheyedan at Orab Field Friday night. Sheldon opened the scoring on a 45 yard touchdown pass from Jaden Kleinhesselink to Philip Cain. The play capped an 80 yard drive. The 2-point attempt was no good and the Orabs had a 6-0 lead with 10:28 left in the half. That would be the halftime score.

Both offenses came alive in the second half. The Orabs were first scoring on a 23 yard pass from Kleinhesselink to Brandon Winkel. The kick was no good and Sheldon took a 12-0 lead with 3:53 to go in the third quarter.

Sibley Ocheyedan got on the board with 1:29 left in the third quarter as a 48 yard drive came to a close on a 5 yard Hunter DeJong touchdown run. The 2-point attempt was no good but the Generals had cut the lead to 12-6.

Sheldon answered with 11:50 to go in the fourth quarter when Tyler Merley hit Phillip Cain on a 62 yard option pass up the right sideline. The 2-point attempt from Kleinhesselink to Kyle Boerhave made the score 20-6.

The Generals answered that on their next possession as Garrett Sayler found Preston Marco for a 61 yard touchdown pass. The kick was no good and Sibley Ocheyedan had made it an 8-point game with 11:26 left to play.

Late in the game the Orabs were able to get a stop on fourth down with the Generals driving deep into Sheldon territory and run out the clock for the win 20-12.

Sheldon travels to South O’Brien next Friday to close out the non district part of the schedule. Sibley Ocheyedan will be at LeMars Gehlen next Friday night.

football 1Northwest Iowa — It’s opening night for high school football in Iowa. On KIWA AM 1550 it’s Sibley Ocheyedan at Sheldon. On KIWA FM 105.3 we’ll bring you Boyden Hull Rock Valley at Western Christian.

The Orabs renew an old rivalry against the Generals at Orab Field. Sheldon Head Coach Tyler Lloyd is impressed with the General’s Physicality.

For the Orabs the keys to a season opening win come down to execution and tempo.

Generals Head Coach Dan Spooner feels it’s good to renew the old rivalry.

Spooner sees the Generals and Orabs as very similar.

Listen in on KIWA AM 1550 for the coverage as Kory Roos joins LA this season for Orab Football.

 

At Hesla Field in Hull another rivalry will be renewed with Western Christian hosting Boyden Hull Rock Valley. Nighthawks Head Coach Cory Brandt talks about  renewing the rivalry.

Long term Brandt is looking for his team to improve daily.

Travis Kooima leads a Wolfpack squad that played for a State Title a year ago. While last year is over some of the lessons learned will help the Wolfpack this year.

Kooima sees the Nighthawks as a definite challenge to prepare for.
