Weekend Brings Big Wins For Football, Volleyball Teams
This weekend brought big wins for Dorchester student-athletes.
On Friday evening, the Milford-Dorchester football team cruised to a convincing win in Class C1 football, beating Lincoln Lutheran 53-13.
The MHS-DHS squad took a commanding 20-6 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. By halftime, it was 33-6. At the end of the third quarter, it was 47-6.
The combined Eagles-Longhorns team are now 6-2 on the season and are No. 14 in the Nebraska School Activities Association power rankings. They face top-10 ranked Wilber Clatonia on the road next week in the regular season finale.
At York, at the Crossroads Conference volleyball tourney, the improving DHS Lady Longhorns showed some real determination, beating Class C2 Cross County in convincing fashion. Then the Lady Longhorns gave Hampton, ranked No. 5 in the state, a serious scare.
The DHS volleyball squad, now 7-17 on the season, will now take a week off to prepare for an Oct. 28 triangular at home.
The Lady Longhorns hope to hit double digits in their season wins, as they still face Parkview Christian (1-16), Nebraska Christian (22-4), and Nebraska Lutheran (11-7).
