DELAVAN, Wisc — The Iowa School for the Deaf football team earned its first win of the season Thursday with a 53-12 triumph over Wisconsin School for the Deaf.
“It was a muddy game; (we) started out slow with everyone slipping and sliding,” ISD coach Brent Welsch said. “Once we settled down, we led 20-0 at the half. We built our lead up to 41-6 early in the fourth quarter to force the running clock.”
The ISD offense was led by Damien Holste, who had 18 carries for 103 yards and two touchdowns and also added three PATs.
Jayden Kohl added seven carries for 84 yards and a pair of scores and added 15 yards passing and another score. Jesse Dalley also had a completion for 20 yards and a touchdown. Gregory Kazeba caught the scoring pass from Holste, while Holste caught the TD pass from Dalley.
Defensively, Welsch said several players stood out. Kohl had two tackles for loss; Dalley had five solo tackles, a sack and two fumble recoveries. Nate Weigel also had a fumble recovery, and Holste and Kazeba combined for 10 tackles. Kazeba also had two fumble recoveries, returning one for a touchdown. Angel Torres returned an interception for a touchdown.
ISD will play Arkansas School for the Deaf on Oct. 12.

SHENANDOAH — Class 1-A No. 2 St. Albert earned a hard-fought Hawkeye Ten Conference road victory over Shenandoah.
The Saintes won 25-15, 25-15, 21-25, 25-12
“Sets 1 and 2, I thought we did a really nice job of taking care of the ball and setting up our multiple hitters to get some swings on the ball. Set 3, I think we got a little too relaxed, and it bit us.
“We refocused and regrouped in that fourth set and finished off on a way better note.”
A team effort paved the way to the Saintes’ 14th win. Lantz commended the play of junior Allie Petry and senior Jordyn Blaha, who played great all-around matches.
