Dogged Linn-Mar effort falls short against Senior

DUBUQUE – It was a classic playoff role reversal, the long-hunted becoming the giant hunter.

The Linn-Mar Lions, who punched numerous state tickets by hurdling underdog Dubuque Senior teams in past substate battles, found themselves on Tuesday night looking up and up against the towering and Class 4A top-ranked Rams on Dubuque soil.

The Lions weren't giving an inch while putting white-knuckle fear of playoff eviction in the eyes of Rams fans looking for their team's third consecutive state tournament berth.

Completely neutralizing Senior's vaunted post game for much of a thrilling Class 4A Substate 3 final, Linn-Mar pushed the Rams to the brink before Rams all-state guard Kyle Haber took over late and elevated No. 1 Senior to a breathless 52-47 triumph before a standing-room-only crowd of 2,200 at Hempstead High's Moody Gym.
