At the UNI-Dome Thursday night, Cedar Rapids Xavier battled unbeaten Pella in a 3A State semifinal.

And the Saints ran into a buzz saw. 

On the Dutch's second possession Pella quarterback Noah Clayberg rifled 25 yard pass to Will Warner to the Xavier 15 yard line.

On the very next play, Nathan Henry slashes off left tackle and runs through a tackle at the goal line to give the Dutch a 7-0 lead.

The next time Pella touched the football Nathan Henry tried the right side, and went 8 yards through two tacklers to the pilon for his second touchdown.

It's 14-0 Pella in the first quarter.

Pella wins 27-0 and advances to the 3A State championship next week against Sioux City Bishop Heelan.
