Cedar Falls (12-1) will advance to play West Des Moines Valley (13-0) in the State Football Final, after a 27-19 win over Cedar Rapids Washington (11-2) Friday night in the UNI-Dome. The Tigers outplayed the Warriors on the line of scrimmage most of the night. Mistakes and Momentum were by products that the Tigers benefited from, as well.
The Warriors had a fine season, but playing Cedar Falls twice in the UNI-Dome proved too much. Coach Tony Lombardi advanced the Warriors farther into the playoffs in his fourth season, but experience at Cedar Falls was shown in the semi-final match up.
Valley beat Ankeny (11-2) 21-14 to advance to the finals, where they will meet Cedar Falls, next weekend.
