DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

The MOC-Floyd Valley boys entered the state tournament aiming for the same fate as their female counterparts, a state championship. But unlike the Lady Dutch, the Dutchmen were the lower seed  as was the case in their Class 3A state opener against 7th-ranked DeWitt Central Clinton.

MOC-FV ended the first quarter down 17-8 but the Dutchmen opened the second quarter on a 7-0 run. The Dutchmen took the lead with three minutes to go in the half. Christian Korver kept it close with four three-pointers and 18 points.

But Central Clinton stole momentum at the end of the first half when Logan Sheppard heaved it 75 feet at the horn for a three-pointer. MOC-FV did lead by one at the half, 30-29, at the half.

The Dutchmen were down eight in the fourth quarter. Levi Jansen scored 32 points but the Dutch fall in round one, 69-67.

"We've been playing so well, and grown a lot as a team as the season's gone on, and to see it end like this, especially for our seniors, it hurts," said sophomore forward Levi Jansen.

"These kids have invested a lot, and so the part that hurts is that it's over for them," said MOC-Floyd Valley head coach Loren De Jong. "I'm going to miss those guys, but I'm really proud of our effort."

MOC-FV ends the season with a 19-6 record. Central Clinton will play Waverly-Shell Rock in the semifinals on Thursday night at 8:15.
