GILBERT, IOWA – For the first time since 2002, Mason City High has won a playoff football game, beating Gilbert 16-14 Friday night in a road contest.

Mason City trailed 14-0 at the half and the game seemed out of reach. However, the Mohawks showed no quit and came back to twin the game.

“What a great effort,” head coach Joh Lee said after the game. “Down 14 at half to battle back and win it 16-14. Proud of these Mohawks.”

The team’s social media page said, “Big win for the Mohawks, first post season win since 2002. Ben Amundson had 42 carries for 169 yards and 2 TDs and Carter Thomas had 101 yds rec. on 3 catches! Defense had a second half shut out. Spec teams w a great fake punt. Team effort wins ball games.”

Mason City next plays at Webster City where they earlier got throttled, 42-7.

    It’s sad but the fastest growing sport is e sport. Do not know why they call it a sport because it is playing video games. Going to be harder and harder to field football teams.
