The underdog Pella football team continues to find ways to win and did just that again Friday night with their upset win over previously undefeated 4th ranked Centerville to earn a return trip to the UNI Dome in Class 3A. Pella entered the post season as a 4th seed and in their trek to the dome have beaten two number 1 seeds and a number 2 seed, with two of those wins coming on the road. Coach Jay Mckinstrey says that’s quite an accomplishment by his guys. He says the confidence level is sky high right now and they continue to elevate their play to another level each time they step on the field. Pella will play New Hampton in the Class 3A Semifinals next Monday at 7:30pm. Mckinstrey says its nice to have a 10 day break after playing four games in 2 weeks to heal up and get everyone healthy.
