Prep Football Roundup - Scottsbluff loses another heartbreaker
     2015-10-01      By The Gering Citizen   
The Scottsbluff Bearcats hit the road last Friday and were narrowly defeated by the Northwest (Grand Island) Vikings, 38-35, in a non-conference game.

The Bearcats scored all of their points in the first three quarters, but were unable to put anything on the board in the final stanza. Meanwhile the Vikes managed a late TD to hand Scottsbluff (3-2, 1-2 away) its second loss on the season.

Bearcats QB Traceton Halley threw for 4-of-8 for 97 yards. He also ran the ball 26 times for 135 yards, and one TD.
Senior running back Brad Johnston bore most of the load, carrying one less time than Halley for 245 yards.

On defense, senior linebacker Isaac De Los Santos made plenty of stops for the Cats, racking up 11 tackles on his own, while helping out on five other plays. Fellow senior linebacker Ben Heggem had five solo stops, and junior Josh Moore added four.
The Bearcats take on the Aurora Huskies at home tomorrow (Oct. 2) in another non-conference contest.

Mitchell 37, Gordon-Rushville 28

The Mitchell Tigers defeated the Gordon-Rushville Mustangs, 37-28, in a conference game at home, getting their fourth win of the season.
The Tigers had no problem advancing the ball, gaining 532 all-purpose yards for the game. Senior QB Drew Gilliland threw for 3 of 4 for 69 yards, while carrying the ball 17 times for 241 yards, while his younger brother sophomore running back Drake Gilliland had 16 carries on the night for 81 yards.

On defense, Drake Gilliland made 11 total stops, six on his own, while Drew Gilliland and junior Seth Marcoe each had five solo tackles.

Next, the Tigers go on the road to take on the Chadron Cardinals in a C1 District 8 game tomorrow. The Cardinals suffered a shutout loss last week to the Ogallala Indians, 35-0. The Indians currently sit atop the district standings.

Morrill 12, Dundy County-Stratton 53

Morrill (2-2, 1-1 away) travelled to Dundy County-Stratton on Friday and suffered a drubbing at the hands of Tigers, 53-12.
The Lions meet the Hemingford Bobcats on Friday at home in a D1 District 10 (8 man) battle. Hemingford heads into the game at 3-1 after being shelled by Perkins County (Grant) last week, 64-18.
So far, Dundy County-Stratton tops district standings. Morrill currently sits at fourth behind Sutherland and Perkins County, in that order.

Bayard 24, Kimball 13

The Bayard Tigers (2-3, 1-2 away) took to the road last Friday and earned a conference win over the Kimball Longhorns, 24-13.
The Tigers scored in all but the second quarter, and kept pace in the fourth to ensure the victory.
Next up, Bayard plays a non-conference game on the road against the Hershey Panthers in a C2 District 8 contest.
