The South Winneshiek Warriors traveled to Cedar Falls on Saturday morning to take on the Iowa City Regina Regals in a state semifinal matchup in the UNI-Dome.

The Warriors were not able to keep up with the four-time defending state champions, falling by a score of 56-18 and ending the Warriors’ record-breaking season.

“We needed to have a near-perfect performance to have a chance to win against Regina,” noted head coach Jason Ohrt. “In the end, things just didn’t go our way as we made a few too many mistakes.”

Upper Iowa lost its football game at top-ranked Minnesota State Saturday, 45-14, but set a number of individual career and team records.

The big story of the day was the numerous records set by Peacock players.

North Fayette Valley fans may have been in shock at halftime as New Hampton led the TigerHawks, 24-7, in the Quarterfinal game Friday in West Union.

However, a football game is four quarters long and NFV coaches and players believed they were still in the game.

They were, and came out of the locker room on fire, scoring 19 straight points, including a final 65-yard drive, 15-play drive with 6:41 left on the clock, to beat the Chickasaws, 26-24.
