A new dog Dad

Article Image Alt Text

I should have known this was coming and been better prepared. 
My wonderful wife Justise has, since the day I met her, longed for the day she could own her first dog. As for me, I have enough trouble trying to feed myself. A dog isn’t necessary. 
So to recap, my wife wants a dog more than anything and it was a big no from me. We compromised and we’ll be dog parents by Thanksgiving. 
Marriage is great. 
Compromise was again a wonderful thing when choosing a breed of our four-legged friend. 
Justise wanted a corgi because, well, I still haven’t figured that out yet. Probably because of those internet influencers. I was hopeful for a big, beefy bulldog with a laughable underbite. 
Again, we talked, compromised and we’re getting a corgi. 
Glad I could have input. 
Now that a puppy was picked out and the deposit thrown in, the most important part was on deck -- the name. 
I got this.

Stormdogs take down top-seeded Jags

Article Image Alt Text

For the second time in as many weeks, the Osceola-High Plains Stormdogs faced a two-possession deficit it was able to bounce back from. 

OHP trailed top-seeded and previously unbeaten Howells-Dodge 14-0 in the first half before scoring 28 unanswered to defeat the Jaguars 28-14 in the Class D1 quarterfinals Tuesday night in Osceola. 

All four of the Stormdogs' touchdowns came from its senior workhorse, Keaton Van Housen. In frigid conditions, Van Housen carried the ball 44 times, totaling 283 yards and four scores. Van Housen averaged 6.4 yards per rush and had 283 of OHP's 362 total rushing yards. 

Van Housen also had a defensive fumble recovery while Carter Boden came up with an interception, both in the second half, to help OHP keep and build the momentum. 

The Stormdogs move on to the semifinals, where OHP will host Cross County Monday night in Clarks with a 7 p.m. kick.

Giltner bounced from state tourney

Article Image Alt Text

Giltner entered what was a deep Class D2 field at the state volleyball tournament with hopes of upsetting the top seed on opening day. Lawrence-Nelson had other ideas. 

The Raiders swept the Lady Hornets in the opening round of the state tourney with scores of 25-10, 25-8 and 25-14. 

Lawrence-Nelson had double digit leads in each of the three sets played. The third set was the most competitive as Giltner led for a short time early on before the Raiders went on a 7-0 run. 

Giltner was the first area team to qualify for the state tournament since 2016 when Aurora and Hampton each made an apperance and was Giltner's first showing since 2015. 

The match was the final one for a long list of seniors, including Sydney Janzen, Lacey Hoffman, Hannah Preissler, Amanda Whisenand, Kaley Ballard, Cassidy Tompkin and Payton Hunnicutt. The Lady Hornets finished the season with a 21-11 overall record.

Article Image Alt Text

The Osceola-High Plains Stormdogs showed plenty of resilience Wednesday night, scoring 24 unanswered points to finish the game in style, defeating the D1 defending state champs Creighton on their home field, 46-32. 

As the snow flurries picked up in the second half, so too did the Stormdog offense. OHP would have trailed 24-6 at half if not for a last-second touchdown pass from Dylan Soule to Keaton Van Housen. 

Carson Watts recovered a Creighton fumble OHP turned into a touchdown while Van Housen came up with a pick late in the third as the Stormdogs trailed Creighton, 32-30. 

OHP took the lead 38-32 on a Soule QB sneak with nine minutes to play when the Stormdog defense rose to the occasion, stopping Creighon on a 4th an inches with 5:20 left. 

Van Housen put the finishing touches on the final score of the game, putting OHP out front 46-32 before the Stormdogs stopped Creighton again on fourth down to secure the win.

Article Image Alt Text

The Osceola/High Plains Stormdogs used a dominant rushing attack to make quick work of Elkhorn Valley Thursday night. The No. 4 seeded Stormdogs took care of business against the No. 13 seed Falcons, winning 73-12 in Clarks. 

The Stormdog rushing attack was led by senior Keaton Van Housen, who scored all five OHP touchdowns in the first half with another 200-yard night on the ground. The senior scored on runs of 9, 41, 44, 27 and 15. 

Unlike the first game these two teams played on Sept. 20 where OHP won 55-46, the Stormdogs slowed down Elkhorn Valley's offense, only allowing six points in the first half. 

Osceola/High Plains moves on to the second round and will travel to Creighton (6-3) Wednesday, after defeating Wisner-Pilger 56-32 in the opening round.
