Last Year on Their Mind
Last year, Wahoo had a heck of a season. They finished 10-2, while advancing to the Class C-1 semifinals where they lost to eventual state champion Aurora. Their other loss? A week three dismantling in Aurora as well. But, on Friday they flipped the script.
Trevon Luben ran for 249 yards and two touchdowns as the top-ranked Warriors knocked off the fourth-ranked Huskies 28-6.

Sorting Things Out
In week three, we can start to make heads of tails of who might be ready to make a move in each class. We’ll try to give quick run down of some games with impact in Class A here.
1. Third-ranked and unbeaten Omaha Westside fell out of those ranks when Lincoln Southeast got a late Nick Hallen touchdown for a 22-17 win.
2. The pecking order, now, after 1-3 (we’d assume Millard West makes the jump to No. 3) gets a little murky.
3. Unbeaten’s Elkhorn South and Grand Island could make a push. Some forget where the Islanders ended their season last year.
4. It appears the top one-loss teams are Lincoln Southeast (a blocked FG from unbeaten), Omaha Burke (who was clipped by Millard West) and then Westside. All have played close games.
A Messy Class B
Man, who knows what to think about Class B as Skutt and Scottsbluff look like the two favorites but after than it gets a little muddy. And even the top-two are getting big challenges.
Last week Omaha Roncalli made a big push against Skutt. But on Friday? Waverly pounded the Crimson Pride for over 600 yards rushing and had a pair over 200. PREP EXTRA REPORT
In Grand Island, Scottsbluff needed everything Sebastian Harsh could give them as he led a late drive and scored his third touchdown with 1:17 left to give the Bearcats an 18-13 win over No. 7 Northwest. The Vikings could move up in the ranking despite the loss.
And, when you thought Jeff Gross and McCook had his the canvas after an 0-2 start, the Bison get a big 21-0 win over York after the Dukes had started 2-0 on the season. Ahhh, football.
