CEDAR FALLS, IOWA (KCAU) – Bishop Heelan football pulled off a stunner at the UNI-Dome as the Crusaders topple one-seed Creston 16-13 in the Class 3A State football semifinals, advancing them back to the 3A State championship for the first time since 2014.
“So happy for those guys, so happy for the kids. It’s unbelievable the way they’ve responded this year and come together as a team and just believe how to win and I can’t be more proud of these guys. They’ve put the work in and it’s come to fruition now,” Bishop Heelan head coach Jon LaFleur said.
“Really happy for our guys, happy we got this far but like coach has been saying, we’re not done. We’ve got one more we’ve got to take care of. We’re going to celebrate this one and on Monday get ready for that next one,” Bishop Heelan senior quarterback Quinn Olson said.
#8 Bishop Heelan will battle #3 Williamsburg for the 3A State crown on Nov. 17 at 1:00 p.m.
