The Iowa High School Athletic Association football playoffs continue with semifinal round games today, tomorrow, and Saturday inside the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. The first Class 3A semifinal is set for 5:36 p.m. today with Harlan meeting three-time defending champion Pella.
The Greene County Rams played Harlan in the second week of the season at Linduska Field in Jefferson, losing to the Cyclones 41-7. Pella downed Class 3A District 2 champion Dallas Center-Grimes in the quarterfinals last Friday after the Mustangs ended Pella’s 42 game winning streak in week 2 of the regular season. Harlan has more state titles in football than any Iowa high school program and Pella is going for its fourth straight crown.
Solon and Cedar Rapids Xavier meet in tonight’s second semifinal in 3A.
