Change of plans: Hello, Armstrong

Thursday’s rain changed my Friday destination.

Because it rained, the Cedar Rapids Kernels will play Game 2 of their playoff series at Clinton. We must cover it.

Thus, Jeff Johnson was pulled off the Cedar Rapids Xavier/Linn-Mar game, and I was penciled in. Jason Brummond will handle the Area Game of the Week at Solon, where the Spartans host the single wing of Sigourney-Keota.

So I’ll see Linn-Mar try to end a 23-game losing streak, against a Xavier squad that will come into the game a little peeved. Xavier was stunned by Cedar Rapids Jefferson, 7-0, in Week 1.

(Jefferson segue … )

Linn-Mar’s last win was against Jefferson, a 24-14 triumph on Sept. 30, 2005. It’s been all L’s since. Four by shutout. Ten in instances in which the Lions failed to reach double figures. Six by a touchdown or less.

Hunch: Linn-Mar’s streak ends. Next week against Dubuque Senior.
