CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa--The top-ranked Carroll Kuemper Catholic Knights scored 28 unanswered points to advance to the Iowa Class 2A State Championship game and end Sioux Center's season.
The Warriors jumped out to a 6-0 lead after some strong defense and a quarterback sneak by backup Ko Kieft. Starting quarterback Andrew O'Donnell left the game early with an apparent injury.
Kuemper quarterback Cole Neary though gave the Knights the lead shortly there after with a quarterback keeper and then completed a 65-yard pass to Alex Drees.
Kuemper will play Waukon for the 2A Championship next week.
Sioux Center sees its season end at 10-3 after advancing to the semifinals for the first time since 1989.
