The West High and Linn-Mar captains meet before the game. West won the game on Oct. 14, 50-7.

West High needed a win in game eight to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Trojans did more than that. West defeated Linn-Mar 50-7 on Oct. 14.

Leading the West High scorers was Devontae Lane ’17 who scored three touchdowns and Oliver Martin ’17 who scored two touchdowns, including a touchdown on a 60 yard punt return. Brennon Keen ’18 and Jason Strunk ’19 scored a touchdown each. 

West high (6-2 overall record, 3-1 district) must beat Ottumwa (0-8) next week to continue their chances to enter the playoffs. For the Trojans to clinch their playoff status for sure, Cedar Rapids Prairie must beat Cedar Rapids Kennedy in next weeks game. Prairie is slightly favored to win. If Kennedy were to pull of the win, the district title would be a three way tie between the three schools. A point comparison between the three school will then be used to determine who will move on, and West would be unlikely to move on.

In summary, West must beat Ottumwa and Prairie must beat Kennedy for West High to move onto the playoffs.
