HARLAN — Lewis Central suffered its first loss of the season Friday, losing to Harlan 14-6.
“A lot of self-inflicted mistakes on our part,” coach Justin Kammrad said. “We just didn’t play very clean. We had multiple penalties that moved us back on a lot of our drives. And we weren’t able to get off the field on defense a couple of times.
“Second half, we were in the red zone, we just didn’t execute.”
Harlan’s Brenden Bartley finished with 85 yards rushing and a touchdown on nine attempts and Connor Frame caught five passes for 132 yards and a score.
Harlan will play at Creston next Friday.
The Titans will play at Glenwood next Friday night and finish off the regular season at ADM in two weeks.

WDM Valley 49, Abraham Lincoln 6
WEST DES MOINES — Abraham Lincoln fell to Class 4-A No. 1 West Des Moines Valley 49-6 Friday night.
“This might have been the best 49-6 loss I’ve ever been a part of,” coach John Wolfe said. “We played really well and they’re supposed to be the No. 1 team in the state. We did some good things. We moved the ball a little bit, got a couple stops, had a couple interceptions, forced them into some long situations. All-and-all, I thought we played pretty well.”
When asked who stood out for his team, coach Wolfe was quick to point out Lennx Brown’s play on both sides of the ball as well Ben Fichter who had two interceptions, a long kick return and close to 100 yards receiving. He also pointed out Jayce Fisher’s outstanding play on the defensive line.
A.L. will hope to translate Friday’s quality effort into a win when it hosts Des Moines North next Friday night.
