Northwest Iowa — Week eight of the high school football season brings a slim margin of error for teams with playoff aspirations with only two weeks left in the regular season and just 16 spots available in each class. The Sheldon Orabs are coming off a home loss to Boyden Hull Rock Valley as they head to Okoboji. The Nighthawks will host MOC Floyd Valley in a game played at Rock Valley.
The Orabs travel to Okoboji with a 4-3 season record and 1-2 district mark. The Pioneers are 2-5 on the season and 0-3 in the district coming off a home loss to Central Lyon George Little Rock.
Orab Head Coach Tyler Lloyd sees the Pioneers as assignment solid on the defensive side of the ball.
Keys to a win for the Orabs begin with rediscovering their explosive plays.
Pioneers Head Coach Jon Allen had this assessment of Orab quarterback Brennan Radke and the Sheldon passing game.
Along with most fans of both teams Allen would like to see a shootout in Milford.
