But on the first scoring chance, Bryce Miller fumbled inside the 5 and Mason City recovered it in the end zone for a touchback.
Five minutes to go in the half and MC's Matt Meyer found Cooper Merrill who took it in from 20 yards out to make it 7-0 Mason City. But the Go-Hawks would tie it before half, then score in the 2nd half to make the final score 13-7 Waverly-Shell Rock.
