- FOOTBALL: Christian Retains Spirit Sword, Defeats Lutheran
By LincolnPrepSports.com Staff
Nebraska recruit Jared Bubak had another solid night.
The Lincoln Christian junior quarterback ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more, by helping the Crusaders to a 45-6 victory over Lincoln Lutheran Friday night at NWU's Abel Stadium.
Four scoring drives in the first quarter helpd Christian to a 26-0 first quarter lead. Bubak led four scoring drives and help open up the passing game.
The Crusader defense stymied Lutheran's offense, by forcing four interceptions, five fumbles and ten penalties. The Warriors avoided the shut out with under a minute to play in the game when quarterback Elijah Kouma's 44-yard pass to Josh Leymaster put Lutheran on the scoreboard.
For the fifth straight year, the Spirit Sword (which symbolizes the sharing of the two schools' faith) will stay in the trophy case at Lincoln Christian.
Bubak rushed for 152 yards.
