Terry Simmons/The Courier Albia quarter back Brett Leshen gets pressure from Adam Drain of Mediapolis during 2A Quarterfinal football action. It was the pressure put on by the Blue Demon defense, however, that allowed second-ranked Albia to book its first trip ever to the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls on Friday as an interception at the goal line and quarterback sack on fourth down late in the fourth quarter sealed a 7-0 victory for Albia over the fourth-ranked Bulldogs. The second-ranked Blue Demons (12-0) face No. 6 Waukon (11-1) next Saturday in the Class 2A State Football semifinals. No. 4 Mediapolis ends the season with an 11-1 record.
