Giltner gets physical in Homecoming victory

Clinging to a two-point lead with less than five minutes to play Friday, Giltner coach Chip Bartos let his team help decide the play that clinched a Homecoming victory.
The play, a pump fake deep route, worked to perfection, giving the Hornets a dramatic 54-44 win over a very physical team of Bulldogs from Osceola.

Who are the Huskers?

Saturday’s word of the day was, “unacceptable.”
Unacceptable, as in the level of play on the field.
Unacceptable, as in the booing that took place at halftime and after the game was over.
Unacceptable, as in quite frankly, the Huskers should never, ever lose to a team like Northern Illinois on their home field (or anywhere else).
Nebraska’s football program is becoming the Disneyland of the Midwest -- it gives fans more ups and downs than a roller coaster.
Think back to Oct. 27, 2016, when Big Red just got done beating Purdue 27-14, improving to 7-0 and getting a Top 10 national ranking. Despite a 2-4 finish when things went bad, optimism bounced back this summer with the arrival of the new 3-4 defense and a brand spanking new quarterback who reportedly carried a high-caliber NFL arm.

After surrendering a leadoff homer to the Bison, Aurora rallied and took the lead in the second inning and never gave it back. Aurora will be in action again on Saturday in the GINW tournament.
