It won’t be the Iowa Conference title showdown many expected in the preseason but plenty is still on the line when Central visits Wartburg on Saturday. At 9-0, Wartburg has already clinched at least a share of the league title and the automatic spot in the division three playoffs and with a win would complete an unbeaten season. It has been a disappointing season for Central. The Dutch are 5-4 and need a win to avoid the program’s first non-winning season in 43-years. Central coach Rich Kacmarynski says there’s definitely an interesting aspect to the game. He says he doesn’t want his team feel the burden of protecting a 42-year streak. He says they’re trying to turn the weight of it into a positive thing with all the support they have from alumni and former players. After getting off to a bad start Central has made strides in recent weeks and Kacmarynski says it starts with the ground game. Kacmarynski says a victory would provide some momentum heading into the off-season. He says they did have the expectation of playing for the conference championship, and says while that’s gone, they still have much to play for, including a four-game winning streak.
