Plenty of action is set in Class 1A for north-central Iowa teams in the first round of the playoffs this week.

Here's a look at those games on tap:

Eagle Grove at Emmetsburg

Emmetsburg will be looking to take care of business after suffering its first loss last week to Western Christian.

Seniors Cole Shirk, Ben Dunlap and Lex Kassel lead the E-Hawks.

Shirt has 735 yards and seven rushing touchdowns, Dunlap has thrown for 364 yards with five TDs and four interceptions on defense, and Kassel has 198 yards and two receiving scores.

For the Eagles, freshman Jake Jeske has taken every snap this year, throwing for 201 yards. He also leads the team in rushing.

The winner between Eagle Grove and Emmetsburg faces either Carroll Kuemper or Pocahontas Area next.

Carroll Kuemper at Pocahontas Area

A tough loss in Week 7 to Southeast Valley kept Pocahontas Area from winning the district title. But the bigger picture remains clear for the Indians.

Senior quarterback Trey Oehlertz leads the way with 1,264 yards and 11 passing scores. He also has rushed for 475 yards and eight TDs, with Cole Runneberg adding 751 yards and 11 TDs.
