In the playoffs, everyone’s hungry. Every game is a battle of mental toughness and shear will.  On Monday, Nov. 3, the No. 1 Lions (10-0) played the No. 4 Sioux Center Warriors (9-1) for the chance to move on in Class 2A playoff action. The top-tier teams were both proven to be heavy hitters on offense and nearly impenetrable on defense. Unfortunately for the Lions, the night belonged to the Warriors.
