Eagles Crush Pender 82-3 in Class D-2 Postseason Opener

The Johnson-Brock Eagles remain undefeated after opening the Class D-2 football players with an 82-3 rout of Pender. The game was played late Thursday afternoon, Oct. 25 at Johnson. The Eagles, second seed in the East bracket, are 9-0 on the season. Pender, 15th seed ends its season 4-5.

It became evident early in the game that the Pendragons were outmanned and in for a tough time as the Eagles raced out to a 34-0 lead after one quarter. The Pender coaching staff only had a few more players make the trip to Johnson that were needed to play Eight-Man Football. Apparently, three players were unable to attend as they were participating in the FFA National Convention.

Sterling Jets Face McCool Junction in Class D6 State Football Playoffs

The Jets hung tough in the early going as they only trailed 0-6 after the first period and 8-12 early in the 2nd period as Logan Jasa completed an 18 yard touchdown pass to Tanner McDonald and Cameron VanGroningen kicked the PAT.

JCC victorious in Hwy 50 showdown

TECUMSEH - It was a battle of 2 cities along the Hwy 50 stretch on Friday night, October 19th in Tecumseh, as the Syracuse Rockets traveled a short 20 minutes south to meet up with the Thunderbirds. It was Homecoming for Johnson County Central, which seemed to provide some extra motivation for the

Thunderbirds, as they got off to an early lead, and never gave it up. The Thunderbirds fired right out of the gate, driving 88 yards on their first possession, ending with a Simon Rother 1 yard touchdown run. Uriel Cabrales added the PAT to make it 7-0 JCC. It was much of the same in the rest of the first half, as the Thunderbirds found the end zone five more times, on scores from Josh Bailey, Kole Kleespies and Levi Dorsey, who both had rushing and receiving scores. The Rockets did find the end zone in the 2nd quarter on a 42-yard pass play, making it JCC 39, Syracuse 8 at the half

Sterling Jets cruise past Tigers

STERLING - The Sterling Jets hosted the Lewiston Tigers for their Homecoming on Friday night, October 12th in cool, damp and foggy conditions.

The Jets didn’t waste any time as they pounced on the Tigers early and often in the first half. Sterling faced a 4th and 11 on their first possession when quarterback Logan Jasa rolled to his left and found Colin VanGroningen wide open for a huge gain and a 1st and goal at the Lewiston 10 yard line.

Three plays later, Tristan Dirks found the end zone on a 10 yard run with 8:37 left. The Jets had their problems all night with the PATs however, as they had their first PAT kick blocked and it remained 6-0.

On Lewiston’s first drive of the night, Jasa went to work on defense by picking off an errant pass to get the ball back for Sterling at their own 10 yd. line.

JCC edged out by Freeman, 12-8

The Thunderbirds once again battled, but came up short on Friday night against the Freeman Falcons. JCC traveled to Adams to take on the 4-2 Falcons, who were ranked #10 in class C-2 entering the contest. “This was one of the most nail-biting finishes that I have been a part of as a head coach, as it came down to the last drive of the ballgame to determine the victor,” Coach Gabe Meints commented. “In the last few years, we have not found ourselves in a position like this very often, that is, making one last drive to try and come from behind to win a ballgame. Our kids showed a lot of fight to try and win this game, as they knew what was at stake.” What was at stake, Coach Meints added, was the chance to beat yet another ranked team on their schedule, as they have been defeated by three previous ranked teams in Wilber, Shelby-RC, and North Bend Central.
