MILFORD, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Lutheran came into Friday’s season finale against Milford ranked 10th in Class C2, just on the edge of playoff contention.

Milford marched down the field and scored on its opening drive to take the 6-0 lead.
Lincoln Lutheran would respond with a 4-yard touchdown run by Will Jurgens to take a 7-6 lead.
And the Warriors wouldn’t look back.
