After a morning upset win (on paper), the Lions refueled and headed across town to Urbandale High School for a first-ever matchup. The #7 ranked J-Hawks lost their morning game to Kennedy, and were ready for a win on their home turf. Linn-Mar possessed the ball early and had a couple of good chances in front of the UHS goalkeeper, but came away with nothing to show for it. Urbandale, on the other hand, took advantage of their chances and scored twice in the first half, and once more in the second, to secure the win. Man of the Match was Jake Voss.
