Red Outlasts White in Defensive All-Star Game

NORFOLK – Red zone defense was the biggest factor in determining a winner of the 2017 All-Star Football Classic.

It’s only fitting, then, that the Red Team came away victorious.

The Red forced two turnovers inside the 20, and stopped the White Team on a 4th down conversion attempt in the red zone to win 14-7.

It looked like the White would be able to do what they wanted offensively, marching their opening drive into the red zone. But Tayen Mayer (Norfolk) was intercepted by Sean Kathol (Hartington CC) ending the drive.

The White Team would strike first later that quarter, as Meyer connected with Henry Bohac (Stanton) on a 19-yard touchdown pass.

But the Red Team seized the momentum righr before the half, as Jalen Wieseler (Wynot) connected with Kathol on a 43-yard pass play as time expired, tying the game at the break, 7-7.

Walker Raabe (Pierce) would score the go-ahead touchdown on a QB sneak in the 3rd quarter, and the Red would get another red zone INT, this time from Riley Berner (Lutheran High NE) in the end-zone to help seal the win.

MVP’s:

Red – Offense: Jalen Wieseler (Wynot), Defense: Sam Morrill (Creighton)
White – Offense: Devin Denker (Norfolk), Defense: Jason Hahlbeck (O’Neill)
