2018 Week 12 (Iowa)

2018 Week 12 (Iowa)

This update will be a little more slimmed down than previously. A lack of time and twelve games make a full recap a bit cumbersome. This would be my third trip to Cedar Falls, Iowa for games. The second for the state semi-finals.

Iowa, like Minnesota, play all semifinals at one predetermined location. The only dome in the state, the UNI-Dome, located on the campus of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, does an excellent job hosting them.

I also could have went down to Drake Stadium to see Roosevelt-Hoover (and also could have caught their freshman game right before it), two teams that had one win between them. I could’ve gone up to Urbandale to watch them play Southeast Polk (hindsight is 20-20, as this was the best game). There was a few others.

But, I chose Des Moines North hosting Des Moines Lincoln. The Polar Bears and Rail Splitters.
