The Class of 2015 defeated the class of 2014 20-14 in the Mt. Pleasant High School homecoming powder puff football game at Maple Leaf Complex.  Congratulations to the Jr. class and good job by the Senior team, good job of getting everyone in the school spirit.  


Homecoming 2013 at Mt. Pleasant High School has been going on this week and of course the big event is the football game.  Win it and homecoming is a success. The opponent is Centerville, the theme is “launch the Big Red”.  They bring in a record of 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the district with a win over Keokuk 49-20 and a loss to #8 Williamsburg 60-14 last week. They have beaten Davis County and lost to Albia in non-district play. Former M.P. Panther Chuck Evans is the head coach of Centerville, the MPHS football team from 1963 that his father, the late Bob Evans coached to an undefeated and un-scored upon season will be honored.   Mt. Pleasant is 0-4 and (0-1), the absence of offense still looms as the big problem for the team.  Last week against Ft. Madison the defense did a good job of holding the other teams scoring down.  Hopefully tonight the offense can get the job done too.  Last season M.P. won 21-14 over the Big Red The freshman teams play at 5 p.m.  The JV teams play Monday at Centerville.  KILJ-FM 105.5 will carry the varsity game beginning at 6:30 with the pregame show and kickoff at 7:30 p.m.

The Iowa Wesleyan College soccer teams took hard losses on Wednesday at Illinois College.  The women’s soccer team was shut out for the third game in a row as they took a 10-0 loss to the Lady Blues.  The Tigers men’s soccer team was shut out for the fourth time this season, falling 13-0 to the Blueboys.


In the women’s game, the Lady Blues wasted no time jumping on top as they scored just 25 seconds into the match.  The Lady Blues never relented as they scored five goals in each half. 

The Lady Blues outshot the Tigers 23-4.  Caitlin O’Neil made eight saves in the net for the Tigers, who now fall to 1-4 on the year.

In the men’s game, the Tigers held off the Blueboys a bit longer.  But once Illinois College found the back of the net 11:55 into the game, they couldn’t be stopped.  The Tigers found themselves with a 7-0 deficit at the half and Illinois College then added six more goals in the last 45 minutes.
