Going into Friday night's game, the Class 1A No. 9 South Winn football team (5-2, 3-1 district) knew it would need to play its best game of the season to take down Class 2A No. 1 Waukon (7-0).
However, with injuries plaguing the Warriors, the fast and powerful Indians proved too strong, defeating South Winn 52-0 in non-district action.
The Warriors are currently tied with Sumner-Frederickburg for second in the district with a 3-1 record. The Warriors hold a tie breaker by defeating the Cougars in a head-to-head battle, while the Cougars hold the point differential edge by nearly three points.
Waukon scored early and often. Their first touchdown came with 6:48 left in the first quarter, going up 7-0. Just over a minute later, the Indians were back in the end zone. The third score of the frame came at the 1:32 mark.
