Seward suffocates Aurora at home

Although Aurora held Seward to just 13 points in the second half, the deficit was too much for the Lady Huskies to overcome. Brooke Williams led Aurora with 12 points in the loss.

National title game timeline

 How many of you stayed up late to watch the college football championship game Monday night? I imagine quite of few of you did.
How boring was that?
For some reason, I couldn’t get too excited about the Alabama-Georgia matchup before kickoff. Maybe because I just wanted to get this 2017 season over, given the Huskers’ season?
But the game wouldn’t go quietly. During the day on Monday, CNN had a link to the game, an “everything you need to know” segment, one of the questions was, “Do they even play football in the north?”
CNN’s answer was, “It’s hard to say.”
Cute.
And what about the almost nauseous ESPN pre-game coverage that started around noon. How can the network do that? It’s just a football game!
As of Monday afternoon, tickets were still available online, ranging from $1,446 for two, up to $5,266 per seat. Or there was that posh suite that went for $87,300. Per ticket. Good luck on that.

Area’s top 10 games of 2017

Covering the four area schools for the 2017 calender year brought plenty of nail-biting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat moments.
In fact, when trying to decide which games would make the top 10 list, I came up with 12 initially without even looking back. And when I did, I found a few more hidden gems that might have snuck into the list.
But, that’s why I get paid the big bucks. Here are your top 10 games from 2017:
1. Giltner overtime win on the road at Arapahoe in 1st round playoff game
This game had everything. Lead changes, dramatic momentum shifts, big offensive plays and a few major defensive stops.
The Hornets trailed 50-36 with 3:35 left in the ballgame before a mad rush to the finish where Giltner tied the game and eventually won in overtime 58-50, utilizing nearly every scenario in the football dictionary.
