WYNOT, Neb.--The Falls City Sacred Heart Irish jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter and the Wynot Blue Devils couldn't recover from the deficit, falling in the Nebraska D-2 State Semifinals 61-44.
Chaz Dunn accounted for 3 first quarter touchdowns for the Irish before Cody Stratman scored first for Wynot.
Stratman hauled in a touchdown pass from Jackson Sudbeck to cut the deficit to ten, 26-16.
After Falls City SH missed a field goal, the Blue Devils had a golden opportunity to seize the momentum, but Sudbeck fumbled and the Irish scored a touchdown two plays later.
