11/06/2013 - C1 FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: Power's Second Half Run Sparks Crusaders Past Tigers

By Jeff Motz

Logan Power came through at a pivotal time, something the Lincoln Christian quarterback has done time and time again.

But the 6-4, 215 senior, who is the Crusaders' punter, faked a punt early in the second half and scored on a 51-yard touchdown run that helped Christian earn a 30-14 victory over Falls City in the second round in the Class C1 state football playoffs Wednesday night at Seacrest Field.

The win puts Christian in the quarterfinals at Ashland-Greenwood next Tuesday, after the Bluejays defeated Wilber-Clatonia 28-23.

Power's fake came on a 4th down play at the Christian 49-yard line, where he acted like he was going to attempt a rugby-style punt.  Instead, Power maneuvered his way through the Tiger defense, only to escape the last Falls City defender at the 20-yard line and score, to give the Crusaders an 18-8 lead.

The run stymied the momentum built up by Falls City (6-4) late in the first half, when quarterback Mitch Harling threw an eight-yard touchdown pass to tight end Reece Hogue.  Adding the two-point conversion, the Tigers trailed 12-8 with 53 seconds left before halftime.

Christian's two first half scoring strikes came on eight and 27-yard passes to Leighton Chicoine.

The Crusaders extended their lead to 24-8 with 5:10 left in the third quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run from running back Tanner Schwaninger.  Power scored on a 40-yard run late in the third for a 30-8 lead.  He finished with 126 rushing yards.

Falls City put up one more scoring effort in the fourth quarter when quarterback Mitch Harling broke free for a 54-yard run.  Harling had 25 carries for 157 yards on the night.
