2019-09-30 - Des Moines Register high school football rankings: District openers lead to small changes in Week 6 polls

FOR SUBSCRIBERS - Cody Goodwin, Des Moines Register - Published 9:00 a.m. CT Sept. 30, 2019 One stat can sum up district play in a nutshell: Only 10 ranked teams lost on Friday. Part of that might be that we’ve reached the point in the season where the polls somewhat accurately reflect the actual power structure in Iowa high school football. But let’s face it. It’s also because the big-time matchups are harder to find. Because only 10 ranked teams lost, there weren’t too many changes in the polls. Three lost in 4A — Fort Dodge, Ankeny, and Dubuque Senior — which allowed Des Moines Roosevelt to slip back in after their record-breaking victory over Sioux City West. Only one lost in 3A. Carlisle fell in an entertaining contest against Norwalk. The Warriors then slid up and replaced the Wildcats at No. 10. Two teams lost in 2A, making way for PCM (Monroe) and Nevada to enter the poll. Nobody lost in 1A. One Class A ranked team lost, which made room for Earlham at No. 10, and three 8-Player teams lost, which created space for Easton Valley, CAM (Anita) and HLV (Victor). With district play now in full swing, expect the weeks to look similar moving forward. That doesn’t mean we won’t have any big games, but they'll be few and far between. Class 4A 1. West Des Moines Valley (5-0), beat Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson 73-0 2. Cedar Falls (5-0), beat Dubuque Hempstead 21-17 3. Dowling Catholic (4-1), beat No. 10 Ankeny 24-14 4. Bettendorf (4-1), beat Cedar Rapids Washington 45-7 5. Cedar Rapids Kennedy (4-1), beat Davenport West 64-0 6. Ankeny Centennial (4-1), beat Marshalltown 42-7 7. Southeast Polk (4-1), beat No. 8 Fort Dodge 24-21 8. Fort Dodge (4-1), lost to No. 7 Southeast Polk 24-21 9. Des Moines Roosevelt (4-1), beat Sioux City West 93-0 10. Ankeny (2-3), lost to No. 3 Dowling Catholic 24-14
