Aurora moves on to the next round after pounding Lincoln Christian
AURORA, Neb. (KLKN) – The Aurora Huskies came into Friday night’s playoff game undefeated and again showed just how good they were.
The Huskies stormed to a 48-28 victory over the Lincoln Christian Bulldogs, even without star running back Carlos Collazo, who was dressed but didn’t play.
On the opening kickoff, Lincoln Christian received the ball, with Nicholas Roth taking it up the field. But Parker Smith punched the ball out, and the Huskies recovered it around Christian’s 32-yard line.
That put the Huskies in scoring position, and they took advantage with a Drew Knust quarterback keeper to make it 7-0.
Later in the first, with Aurora up 14-0, Lincoln Christian’s Luke Penrod took a pitch play all the way to the 10-yard line. The Bulldogs scored on the next play.
But Aurora was just too strong of a team. With less than two minutes to go in the first half, the Huskies decided to go with a no-huddle two-minute drill, and it worked.
Koby Nachtigal got the pass from Booker Scheirman, and he got into the end zone with eight seconds left in the half to put the Huskies up 41-12.
They take on Boone Central next Friday.
