08/30/2014 - Saturday Morning Recap: Drama In First Two Intra-City Football Games At Seacrest
 Postseason-like drama to open up the football season!  Yes, please.

What a great way to start the 2014 high school football campaign for at least five of the six LPS teams that started the season this weekend at Seacrest Field.  Definitely, worth the price of admission.

Lincoln North Star nearly pulled off an upset Thursday night, when ninth-ranked Omaha Central got a late, 10-yard touchdown to hold off the Navigators 28-18.

Friday, the dramatics were even higher when Lincoln Northeast used a fourth quarter rally behind two touchdowns from quarterback Trevor Petersen and sealed the game with an interception from Derrick Curtis in a 35-31 win over Lincoln High in the city's oldest football rivalry.

To top things off, nearly 6,000 people saw the Lincoln Southwest/Lincoln Southeast game end in exciting fashion once again.  Isaac Armstrong nailed a 39-yard field goal with two seconds left to give Southwest their second straight victory over Southeast by the final of 24-22.

I'd say that's a good start to the season!  

Lincoln East, Lincoln Pius X and Lincoln Christian suffered losses, but had decent showings in their games.  Lincoln Lutheran, under first year head coach Greg Nelson, will continue to improve as the season moves along.

Final thoughts:  Not a bad showing among the area schools during the opening weekend of play.  The season is very young and anything is certainly possible, especially in the race for the city championship.
