The Alburnett Pirates used a second half comeback over Wapsie Valley to move on to the quarterfinal round on Friday.
It was a defensive struggle in the first half until the Warriors' Zach Kulhmann picks off a Jacob Sevening pass which led to a four-yard touchdown run by quarterback Mitchell Boevers.
Warriors lead the Pirates 7-0 at halftime.
But Alburnett would come back in the second half outscoring the Warriors 13-3 to take the win 13-10.
The undefeated Pirates will travel to West Branch on Friday to take on the 9-2 Bears.
