Unbeatens to meet in Class C-1

Boone Central picked up another win over a ranked C-1 opponent while another one awaits the Cardinals next week.

No. 3 Boone held a 21-13 lead over No. 10 Wayne after three quarters before pulling away for a 35-13 win. Boone will play fellow unbeaten Columbus Scotus next week.

Boone edged then-No. 1 Pierce two weeks ago.

Pierce faced another major test Friday when it trailed West Point-Beemer 41-28 midway through the third quarter. But Pierce grabbed a 49-41 lead midway through the fourth en route to a 57-41 win.

Thrillers in Class B

While Class B No. 1 Bennington was rolling over No. 2 Elkhorn, No. 3 Plattsmouth earned a bump in the ratings by winning a thriller over No. 4 Waverly.

Tied 14-14 at halftime, Plattsmouth scored the only points of the second half when Owen Prince went up and grabbed a defended pass from TJ Fitzpatrick near the goal line and scored a 22-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left for a 21-14 win.

Also in Class B, Seward won when Gavin Sukup hit Micah Hackbart with a 9-yard pass in the end zone with nine seconds left to edge Beatrice 28-26. Beatrice's Elliot Jurgens had scored his fourth TD of the night with 1:24 left.

Longhorns rally 

A matchup of unbeatens lived up to the billing in Eight Man-1 as No. 1 Burwell rallied for a 34-28 win over unranked Anselmo-Merna.

Burwell never led until it scored with just under five left for the 34-28 lead. Anselmo-Merna led 20-0 midway through the second quarter and 28-20 after the third.

Meanwhile, Bloomfield, ranked 10th in Eight Man-2, never trailed in downing No. 3 O'Neill St. Mary's 28-22.

Bloomfield built a 28-8 lead on Cody Bruegman's 27-yard run late in the third quarter. St. Mary's scored twice in the fourth, the latter with 52 seconds left, but couldn't complete the comeback.
