West pounds Wahlert

IOWA CITY– Some call it “the second season.” Officially, it is “the Football Postseason Tournament.” Call it what you will, the bottom line is the same.
It’s do or die time.
Brian Sauser’s West High Trojans survived Wednesday night’s (Oct. 26) first round encounter with Dubuque Wahlert at home, picking up the team’s first postseason win in several years, 66-32.
The Trojans took the kickoff from Wahlert and scored on a Charles Rogers 44 yard keeper with 8:40 left in the first quarter. Alex Troester’s point-after-touchdown (PAT) kick was good, and West had the early 7-0 lead.
