#3 Waukee vs #6 Bettendorf

These two teams have seen each other twice this season (Midwest Shootout & Ed Winger) which is rare for this type of season. Waukee placed ahead of them at both tournaments. Waukee has put together a very nice season and would love to win a state dual title in their last year as one school. This dual has the potential for SIX ranked matchups. Perhaps the most intriguing matchup will be at 126 between Dustin Bohren of Bettendorf and Thurman Christensen of Waukee. This is a potential state finals preview with Ayala moving up to 132. Look for Waukee to be too much for Bettendorf to handle.

Prediction: Waukee over Bettendorf by 15-20 points
