Week 8: Soggy Spartan Stadium

It’s 4 p.m. on a Friday and it’s raining on my deck outside my kitchen.

Kickoff between 2A top-ranked Solon and No. 3 Iowa City Regina is 3 1/2 hours away. I should be thinking about leaving. Solon’s press box is on the cozy side (forget that; it’s just plain small) and rumor has it that 187 radio creatures will be inhabiting it. Great.

Solon owns a 20-game winning streak while Regina has struggled in two of its last three games, including an overtime win over West Liberty last week. Everybody seems to think Solon will win handily. Adverse weather favors the underdog, and Regina will play hard.

Still: Spartans, 28-10.
