LINCOLN–(KFOR Oct. 19)–Over the final eight minutes of their football game Thursday night at Seacrest Field, Millard North managed to find a way to bounce back and defeat Lincoln Southwest.

The Mustangs rattled off 21 unanswered points to beat the Silver Hawks 21-10 in a game heard on KFOR.

Millard North (4-5) managed to respond to Southwest’s 69-yard touchdown pass to Jackson Carpenter from quarterback Brockston Teply early in the fourth quarter.  From there, things would go down hill for the Silver Hawks, starting with a sideline warning after the touchdown, which later helped set the ball at the Mustang 40-yard line.

Millard North capped the 60-yard drive on a 19-yard touchdown pass to Pierce Moosberry to get the Mustangs on the board, trailing 10-7.  A mishandled kickoff return and a holding penalty prompted Southwest to punt.  Millard North soon capitalized on a 17-yard touchdown run from Evan Hansen to take control at 14-10.

Southwest (3-6) committed a couple of holding penalties on their next possession but ended on an interception.  Millard North sealed the game with a five-yard touchdown run from Colin Bogacz with 1:20 remaining.

Southwest needed a win to secure what may have been a lower-seed in the Class A State Football Playoffs.  Millard North will qualify with the win.
