DES MOINES - Valley-Dowling is the best rivalry in the state, and Friday night was another great example why.
Top ranked Dowling loses to 4th ranked Valley 20-6. It was a dominating performance by the Valley defense, turning back numerous Dowling scoring opportunities.
It's just the 4th loss for Dowling in the last 5+ years, 3 of those courtesy of Valley.
Tigers host CR Kennedy next week, Dowling travels to take on Johnston, who will likely be the new #1 team in Class 4A.
