DES MOINES (KWWL) -

 Dubuque Wahlert erased a double-digit second quarter lead to rally past Cedar Rapids Xavier 67-54 in the class 3A semifinals.

Nolan Timp led the Golden Eagles effort with 24 points. David Wedewer and Josh Carter each added 16 in the winning effort.

Xavier came out hot in the first half, eventually building up a 12 point lead midway through the second quarter on a layup by Michael Mims. That's when Wahlert went to work tying the game in the 3rd quarter following a 20-8 run. The Golden Eagles took the lead for good on a 3-pointer by Wedewer late in the quarter.

Wahlert moves on to face Lemars in Saturday's championship game.
