Lamoni had one of its best drives to open the second half. The ninth play of the drive, however, resulted in another fumble lost.
Twin Cedars failed to score as an interception gave the visitors the ball deep in Saber territory at the 14. Roby's interception in the end zone kept the visitors from narrowing the 10-point lead.
Roby was at the other end of the drive that gave the Sabers a 34-16 lead. Parker hit Roby with a 26-yard scoring pass and then hit Garrett Pettyjohn with the conversion pass.
Roby, who had three touchdown catches and two interceptions, had to take the ball away from the defender to score.
“I had a hand on it early but he had both his on the ball so I had to take it away,” said Roby. “I feel like my biggest catch was the interception in the end zone.”
Lamoni had to punt the ball back to the Sabers. The 16-yard return by Moore was highlighted by a huge block by Corey Harrell. Harrell would have another hit that big later in the final quarter as he tackled a Lamoni ball carrier near the sideline.
Harrell, a defensive tackle, talked about his game.
“We were widened out a little so we could stop the sweep,” Harrell said. “The runner kind of turned back into the field and I got him.”
Twin Cedars turned Moore’s return into their final score. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Parker connected with Roby for the third time good for 21 yards and a 40-16 lead.
The game sloshed to the end with only one more score. Lamoni’s Ranney ran in his second touchdown from eight yards out to close out the game’s scoring and make the final 40-22 Twin Cedars.
Twin Cedars (10-1) will travel to Adair Monday night to take on highly ranked Adair-Casey. The Bombers (10-0) beat Meskwaki Settlement, 59-20, in its playoff opener.
