Twin Cedars Still Alive in Prep Football Playoffs


Four area prep football teams played in the first round of the high school playoffs last Friday night, but only one was left standing for the quarterfinals. #8 Twin Cedars improved its record to 10-0 on the season with a come-from-behind 24-22 win at home over Iowa Valley. The Sabers fell behind with under a minute to play, but used a hook-and-lateral play with 13 seconds left to tie the game, then made the two-point conversion to secure the win.

In the quarterfinals of the 8-Man playoffs, Twin Cedars faces 8-2 Midland. The Eagles from Wyoming, IA are unranked, but their only two losses are to #4 Don Bosco, and to an 8-1 Lone Tree squad that somehow got left out of the playoffs. In the first round, Midland demolished HLV 80-24. Twin Cedars had defeated HLV 32-14 in the final week of the regular season to earn the district championship.

A home victory for Twin Cedars Friday night would advance the Sabers to the state semifinals at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls against either Don Bosco or #5 Central Elkader. The 8-Man semifinals will be played on Thursday, November 10th.
