10/24/2014 - FOOTBALL: Millard West Holds Off Southeast Rally

By Jeff Motz

Lincoln Southeast used some old school plays to compete with Millard West Thursday night, but the Knights couldn't overcome a second half surge, as the Class A 10th-ranked Wildcats hung on for a 35-28 victory in high school football at Seacrest Field.

With a tied ball game at 14, the kickoff of the 3rd quarter opened the door for Millard West, when kick returner Preston Humphrey ran the ball back 83-yards to the Southeast 7-yard line. A penalty against the Knights moved the ball to the 4-yard line, setting up Thomas Russell for a touchdown run to put the Wildcats ahead 21-14.

Southeast (3-6) responded two minutes later when Martiez Prather scored on a 72-yard run, however, it was a 50-yard run on an option play from quarterback Logan Anderjaska to the Knights' 4-yard line that set up another Russell touchdown that gave the Wildcats the lead for good at 28-21.

Jack Banta intercepted a pass from Strong later in the 3rd quarter, which set up another Millard West touchdown as fullback Dylan Hughes raced 80-yards down field for a 35-21 Wildcat lead. Southeast mounted another scoring drive with 4:42 left in the game, when quarterback Alex Holman found tight end Adam Riley on a 34-yard toss. Millard West got the ball back and ran out the clock.

Southeast had an early lead, utilized by a halfback pass on their first scoring drive, when freshman quarterback Jack Strong pitched to Prather, who found Carter Johnson on a 35-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead.

Millard West, now 6-3 and awaits where they will head in the playoffs, quickly responded with a 53-yard run from Thomas Russell, which set up his eventual touchdown run from a yard out. A broken extra-point attempt set up a two-point conversion to tight end Cole Neville and the Wildcats took command at 8-7 after one.

Southeast's next drive to open the second quarter resulted in a fumble recovery for Millard West at the Knights' 32-yard line. Russell capped the drive on a 2-yard scoring run with 11:12 in the first half. The PAT failed and the Wildcats led 14-7.

Facing a punting situation on fourth down, Southeast punter Tate Pringle picked up a bad snap and ran the ball down field to the Millard West 32-yard line to sustain the drive. The Knights dove back into their bag of tricks, as quarterback threw a swing pass to Johnson, who tossed it to Prather on a hook and latter play for another touchdown with 5:59 left in the 2nd quarter to tie the game at 14.
