WEST UNION -- North Fayette Valley ran the football down the throat of South Winneshiek last night in a 49-14 Class 1A playoff victory.

The TigerHawks outscored South Winneshiek 29 to 0 in the second half to earn a berth against Iowa City Regina at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.

"We can pass, but we chose not to," said North Fayette Valley Coach Bob Lape, whose team threw just one pass in the contest.

"We wanted to run the ball and eat the clock, and that's what we did," he said.

Avoiding turnovers was also a key to the victory, Lape said.

Junior running back Derrick Kuehner, who rushed for 195 yards in the first half, scored five of the Tigerhawks' seven touchdowns.

Fullback Josh Mackey took over much of the rushing load in the second half, carrying the ball nine straight times in the Tigerhawks' opening third quarter scoring drive.

South Winneshiek Coach Jason Ohrt said the strong southeast wind did not hamper the Warriors' passing game.

South Winneshiek scored first on a 53-yard pass from Logan Schweinefus to Jordan Rommes.

Jared Schroeder scored the Warriors' last touchdown on a 10-yard run with 4:06 to play in the half.

After that it was all North Fayette Valley, which defeated South Winneshiek in early October in a Class 1A District 4 matchup.

South Winneshiek finished with a 9-3 mark, while the TigerHawks improved to 11-1.
