By any definition of the term, Wednesday’s season-opening dual in Iowa Falls was big. It pitted second-ranked NIACC against the number-five Ellsworth Community College Panthers. In the end, it was the Trojans to fire the first salvo in a 24-19 win. It was also Adam Fahs’ debut as the ECC interim head coach.
“It was a learning experience, get some jitters and stuff like that out of the way,” Fahs said. “The best part is we get to go back to the drawing board and get better from these matches. I think we’re in a good place. All that matters is what we do between now and March 7. It’s a long season and I just want to see steady improvement. I don’t put all my chips in in November.”
