Before Thursday night, the Dragons in their four years in Class A hadn’t beaten a team that finished with a winning record.
Elkhorn South would have been it. But the Storm yanked their chair away.
Gretna was close to that first significant win in the state’s largest classification. It has another chance at home Friday against No. 10 Lincoln Southeast (5-2).
Gretna (6-1) 7 7 0 6 — 20
