Stormdogs dominate line of scrimmage in rivalry contest

Article Image Alt Text

Friday’s Osceola/High Plains-Cross County rivalry game was as old school as it gets.
Bone-rattling hits, tight formations and playbooks that would make ‘run the ball’ guy thrilled.
The Stormdogs had no problem running the ball, totaling nearly 400 yards on the ground for a second straight week in a 52-18 win over Cross County. What’s more, the Stormdogs didn’t throw a single pass all night.
OHP co-coach Greg Wood had plenty of praise for those on the offensive line who helped create big holes in the trenches.
“The offensive line was physical and played well,” Wood noted. “We took a lot of pride in that. When we make those runs, it’s because of them.”

The Huskies led by two touchdowns in the first quarter, but couldn’t deliver the knock-out blow in a game coach Kyle Peterson said was a bit frustrating.
“There were a lot of little details we were missing on so we had to find a way to clean those up,” Peterson said.

‘The best game in town’

Article Image Alt Text

Jack Guggenmos was Aurora’s head football coach for 20 years, ending his stint here in 1998, and while he did pile up the wins and playoff appearances, what he left behind as he continued on his journey is simply immeasurable.
One simply cannot measure the positive impact he had on local youth.
His most recent honor of being inducted into the Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame is more than fitting, more than deserved, but he’s certainly not one boast.
“I was really humbled and honored by that,” he told me, “but the thing that I probably appreciate the most is it’s an accumulation of a career of basically 50 years in high school athletics. The thing I will cherish is the relationships I’ve formed and the kids. That’s a lot more meaningful than the hall, but I’m very appreciative of that honor.”

GINW bests Aurora in four

Article Image Alt Text

It's always an extra notch when Aurora and Grand Island Northwest compete in anything. That was certainly the case Tuesday night in volleyball. 

In four grueling sets, the Class B No. 8 Vikings outlasted Aurora 25-21, 25-23, 14-25 and 31-29. 

Aurora got behind early in each of the first two sets, but rallied to make a game out of each. In the end, GINW held a 2-0 lead in the match. 

The third set was all Aurora, leading by as many as 11 to send it to a fourth, 25-14. 

The fourth set was wild as each team had eight set point opportunites -- GINW with five and Aurora with three -- two attacks from the Vikings finished it off. 

It was another balanced attack for Aurora as Paxtyn Dummer totaled 10 kills with Kassidy Hudson adding nine and Lauren Feely at seven.
