No. 3 Hampton takes down No. 2 Giltner

The No. 3-ranked Hampton Lady Hawks saw the defending D-2 state champs come into its gym, and they watched them leave with their first loss in a triangular with Dorchester Thursday night. It wasn't looking good midway through the third and final set as Hampton was down 17-12, but it managed to cut the deficit to just one point to make the score 19-18. Sophomore Madison Vanhousen then rattled off three straight aces to put the Lady Hawks on top 21-19 and shoot momentum Hampton's way.

Huebert scores five touchdowns as Aurora wins 46-27 in Alliance

Playing in the Moutain Time Zone didn't throw off the Huskies' Tobey Huebert Friday night in Alliance. The senior receiver helped his team to a 46-27 win by scoring five touchdowns in a class B tilt out west. Huebert led the team with nine catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He also was featured as the goal line back and converted on a couple of toss sweeps out of the I-formation to net two more scores. Huebert also had success in the return game, slicing his way through defenders in the first quarter for another score. Senior QB Jake Kittle threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns while going 18-35 through the air. Senior running back Matt Oswald led the team in rushing with 12 carries for 100 yards. Oswald was a key part late in the game as he killed clock and broke a few long runs. Check this week's edition for a more detailed game story as well as thoughts from head coach Randy Huebert.

High Plains comeback falls short

High Plains spotted the West Point Guardian Angels a 22-point first quarter lead Friday in the season opener for both teams, and then fought back with a furious second-half rally to have a chance to win. Facing a fourth and four from their own 15 with 2 minutes to play, Storm quarterback Jabe Wertz had an open receiver, but the ball was knocked down at the line of scrimmage, ending what would have been a go-ahead drive.
