Pella’s surprising 27-23 loss to Carlisle on Friday night didn’t shut the door on their postseason hopes, but it certainly didn’t make things any easier. Little Dutch Head Coach Jay McKinstrey says having a 1-2 record in District 6 means his team will have to focus solely on each week’s game to stay in the hunt.

“I don’t think it’s a problem for us just yet,” said McKinstrey, “but we’re going to have to concentrate on playing good football and just take one game at a time.”

Pella currently sits in 5th place in the district standings, with undefeated Grinnell coming to town on Friday. The Little Dutch are 3-2 overall.
