MASON CITY — What exactly did Cedar Rapids Washington’s Andrew Dostal bring to the table Friday night?

The simple answer is everything.

The Washington senior was a triple threat as the No. 5-ranked Warriors got back on the winning track in a 30-7 district victory at Mason City.

Dostal’s first-half performance was a big reason why Washington raced to a 23-0 halftime advantage as he ran for a 38-yard touchdown, threw a 28-yard touchdown and hauled in a spectacular one-handed 26-yard touchdown reception with less than a minute left in the first half.

Dostal didn’t have a reception in the first half until he hauled in four passes on Washington’s final drive of the half, which he capped with a touchdown grab where he leapt over a Mohawk defender to make a one-handed stab.

The 6-foot, 190-pound senior was a big-play machine throughout the night.

Despite being listed as a wide receiver, he had runs of 38, 26 and 21 yards and completed passes for 17 and 28 yards to help Washington rebound from last week’s loss to Cedar Falls.

With Dostal and his 216 yards of total offense shouldering most of the offensive load, the Warrior defense kept Mason City’s offense stuck in neutral.

Washington forced three-and-outs on Mason City’s first six drives and harassed Mohawk quarterback Ben Pappas throughout the night, holding the junior to 5 of 23 passing for 42 yards. Washington forced nine Mason City punts.

The game was marred by penalties. Washington had 10 infractions for 107 yards, and Mason City had nine penalties for 91 yards, including a 5-yard penalty on the band for refusing to stop playing when Washington was lined up for a kickoff.
