The Webster City Lynx football team will look to right the ship, following their season-opening loss to Humboldt last Friday. The Lynx will make the trek south on Highway 17, over to Highway 30 to face off with the Boone Toreadors at Goeppinger Field on Friday night. Webster City has won the last 10 meetings, and leads the all-time series 39-30-5, dating all the way back to 1896.
The Toreadors come into Friday night’s game off the heels of rough opening game, as they fell to Class 3A #9 Nevada Cubs by a final score of 48-7. Boone is replacing their quarterback by committee system from 2020, as both Morgan Smith and Cole Burge are gone, as well as their top 4 receivers in Tegan Bock, Marcus McPartland, Garrett McKnight and Cole Burge. It was Kyle Sharp who took the snaps at quarterback for Boone against Nevada, and it will be up to him to right the ship after a Week 1 blowout.
Bob Howard’s Lynx will look to rejuvenate their offense, after they were held in check by Humboldt on Friday night. The Lynx rushing attack still managed over 200 yards, but the main cogs in CJ Hisler, Jaxon Cherry and Connor Hanson will held to under 65 yards each. Hisler scored the Lynx’s lone touchdown against Humboldt. It will also be a chance for the defensive secondary to regroup after Humboldt’s Cade Matson threw 5 touchdowns in last Friday’s win for the Wildcats.
Kickoff is slated for 7:30 PM in Boone on Friday. Catch all the action with Jerry Klaver on 95.7 KQWC, with pregame starting at 7 PM.
