Pair of Upsets Highlight Second Round of Eight-Man Playoffs


Just win, baby.

The Raiders of Lawrence-Nelson are doing just that, as the #11 seed in the West bracket of the Class D-2 playoffs pulled off their second-straight upset with a 33-30 win over Clearwater-Orchard Wednesday night to advance to the quarterfinal round.

Lawrence-Nelson, 7-3, scored a 54-20 win over Wauneta-Palisade in the opening round last week. On Thursday night, Lawrence-Nelson trailed 30-20 entering the fourth quarter before scoring a pair of touchdowns and holding Clearwater-Orchard on a fourth-down late in the game to seal the victory.

In Class D-1, another #11 seed in the West bracket pulled an upset as North Central stunned Nebraska Christian 36-28. North Central, 7-3, scored the final 16 points of the contest to give Nebraska Christian its first loss of the year.
