A clash of unbeaten teams separated by only 40 miles is all the buzz in southern Jasper County, as PCM prepares for a Class 2A Quarterfinal showdown with West Marshall Monday night.
A number of athletes on each of these teams should be very familiar with this scenario. This past February, PCM earned a trip to Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines for the State Basketball Tournament with a 33-31 win over West Marshall in the Substate Finals. Now the Mustangs will try an earn a trip to another coveted venue: the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls for the Class 2A Semifinals.
PCM head football coach Greg Bonnett says the two teams share a number of similarities, including dazzling playmakers, potent offensive units and stingy defenses; adding that he expects a very exciting game Monday night.
