MHS-DHS Falls In First-Round Of Class C-1 Playoffs
On a cold Halloween night, the Milford-Dorchester football team fell in the first round of
the Class C-1 Playoffs to No. 1 ranked Boone Central/Newman Grove by a final score of 48-7. The game was played in Albion, often referred to as the "gateway to the Sandhills."
The combined MHS-DHS team came out ready to play, but just couldn't compete with the speed and power of the Boone Central squad, which held a commanding 35-0 lead at halftime.
MHS-DHS wouldn't score until the fourth quarter. Boone Central/Newman Grove was lead by the arm of quarterback Wyatt Mazour, who threw three touchdown passes in the first half and rushed for another.
Milford-Dorchester finished 6-4 in its first season of merged varsity competition. The players and coaches should be proud that they qualified for the playoffs in Class C-1, which offers a high level of competition in Nebraska high school football.
