ALTA — Derek Von Arb scored two touchdowns, including the winning score with 1:36 to play in the game, to lead Gehlen Catholic to a 23-20 Class A playoff victory over Alta-Aurelia Friday night in Alta.  Von Arb scored on a three yard run for the fifth and final lead change of the game.  Keaton Bonderson caught a two-point conversion pass from Conner Kraft to cap a two-play, five yard drive that was set-up by Dylan Lehmann’s 70-yard kickoff return to the Warriors’ 10 yard line.  A five-yard unsportsmanlike penalty on Alta-Aurelia moved the ball to the five yard line.  The Warriors had gone ahead 20-15, just 20 seconds earlier on Cade Rowher’s second touchdown of the game on a quarterback sneak.  He then caught a two-point conversion pass.  Rohwer snapped a 0-0 halftime tie with a quarterback sneak from a yard away following his interception of a Conner Kraft pass at the Gehlen 23 yard line.  The Jays marched right back down the field 80 yards in six plays and scored on a Zack Kraft three-yard run.  Ryan Livermore’s PAT put the Jays in front 7-6.  Levi Sleezer ran six yards for a Warrior touchdown and a 12-7 lead with 10:47 to play.  The Jays took possession at their own 35 and marched 65 yards in 12 plays, consuming 6 minutes, with Derek Von Arb putting Gehlen back in front 15-12 on a two yard run and he then caught a two-point conversion pass.  Conner Kraft’s interception with 53-seconds to play iced the victory.  Statistically, Derek Von Arb had 175 yards rushing on 23 carries.  Keaton Bonderson hauled in 8 passes for 87 yards and Conner Kraft threw for 141 yards, connecting on 13-of-23 passes with two interceptions.  The Jays improve to 3-4 for the season and play in the second round of the playoffs next Friday at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn.  The game will be carried on KLEM.

STORM LAKE — Storm Lake rallied from a 22-14 halftime deficit to a 36-28 victory over Le Mars Friday night in a Class 3A playoff outcome that ended the Bulldogs season with a 1-6 record.  Colton Hoag capped the Bulldogs opening drive with a 14 yard run and Carter Arens scored two first half touchdowns on quarterback sneaks for Le Mars.  The Tornados pulled to within 22-20 early in the third quarter on a 48-yard run by Eduardo Sanchez before taking their first lead of the game late in the third period on a 39-yard run by Ben Raveling for a 28-22 advantage heading into the final quarter.  Storm Lake extended the lead to 36-22 in the final quarter, scoring on a four yard run by Angel Godoy with 6:33 to play before Le Mars scored with 1:33 to play on a four yard run by Colton Hoag and a two-point conversion pass from Carter Arens to Hoag to close the gap to eight points.  But Storm Lake was able to run the clock out following the kick-off.  Storm Lake rolled up 348 yards rushing led by Ben Raveling’s 116 yards on 15 carries.  Godoy added 95 yards on 15 carries.  Carter Arens led a 194 yard rushing performance for Le Mars with 95 yards on 24 carries.  Elijah Dougherty had 67 yards on 12 carries.  Arens was 8-of-10 passing for 85 yards.  Hoag caught four passes for 69 yards.  The victory was the seventh straight win in the series for Storm Lake and marked their first-ever playoff victory.  The Tornados take a 3-5 record to Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley next Friday in the second round of the 3A playoffs.
