New Hampton falls 21-30 to Pella in state semifinal

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- New Hampton's early lead quickly evaporated as Pella advanced to the class 3A state final with a 30-21 win.

New Hampton took the lead early with a long opening drive.  Brock Boeding took the first handoff of the game 53 yards to the Pella 27.  Brandon Henn scored 4 plays later on a 3 yard run op the gut to give the Chickasaws a 7-0 edge.

The lead lasted only seconds, however, as Pella's Brett Bogaard took the ensuing kickoff 89 yards to tie the game at 7.  The Dutch then took the lead after Dan Wegter scooped up a blocked punt and took it back 10 yards as Pella would not relinquish the lead the rest of the game.
