South Wins Shrine Bowl

Lincoln, NE-On Saturday night at Memorial Stadium the South team defeated the North 24-0 at the 43 annual Shrine Bowl.  Crete's Bryan Florendo scored the first touchdown of the game on a 3 yard run.  Future Nebraska wide receiver Andy Birkel then caught a touchdown pass to give the South a 14-0 lead.  Bellevue West's Andy Severson's 51 yard field goal built that lead to 17-0.  And then with time winding down in the game Birkel intercepted a pass and took it the distance to help the South cap off a victorious evening.
