November 12th

Just out of reach

West defeated Prairie 58-27 in the regular season and was ranked No. 2 in the state with a 10-0 record vs. Prairie’s 7-3. Under a full moon and with the end of the season, or advancing one step closer to the UNI Dome on the line, the Prairie Hawks apparently forgot they were supposed to lose.
