Dutch fall just short of postseason after loss to Warriors

CEDAR RAPIDS — Friday’s game proved to be a de-facto play-in game to the playoffs as Pella made the trip to face Cedar Rapids Washington in their regular season finale. A late interception would seal the deal as the Dutch fell to the Warriors, 23-21. The Pella loss created a three-way tie for the runner-up spot in the district with the winner of the tiebreaker being decided by RPI. Clear Creek-Amana won the tiebreaker, meaning Cedar Rapids Washington and Pella would both be sitting on the bubble waiting to see if they earned one of the four at-large bids.

Knoxville ends season with loss to No. 1 Harlan

KNOXVILLE — The Panthers welcomed the top-ranked Cyclones to Ken Locke Stadium on Friday for the regular season finale. Harlan showcased why they will be a title favorite entering the postseason as they dispatched Knoxville, 76-0. Knoxville started the game well with Jay Kellar picking off Harlan quarterback Teagon Kasperbauer. But the Panthers had a tough time moving the ball all night and that would quickly give the ball back to the Cyclone offense to take the other way.
