10/24/2014 - FOOTBALL: Burke's Offense Heats Up Fast Against Northeast

By Jeff Motz

Like a flash of lightning, Omaha Burke's offense struck quickly without warning.

The Bulldogs got three touchdowns from running back Garrett Campbell and quickly disposed of Lincoln Northeast 49-7 on Friday night in high school football at Lincoln High's Pfeiff Field.

Burke (4-5) forced a fumble on Northeast's first possession and recovered the ball at the Rocket 23-yard line.  Three plays later, Campbell scored on a 9-yard run to put the Bulldogs ahead 7-0 about two minutes into the game.  Four minutes later, Campbell scored on a 10-yard run to extend the lead to 14-0.  Austan Daniels joined the party, but catching a 53-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jackson Abramo.  That put Burke ahead 21-0 at the end of the 1st quarter.

It didn't get any easier for Northeast the rest of the night.  The Rockets, who finish the year at 2-7, were penalized 12 times for 99 yards.  What was Northeast's loss was Burke's gain offensively.  

Campbell struck with a 50-yard gain that help set up a three-yard touchdown pass from Abramo to MJ Blankenfeld for a 28-0 Bulldog lead.  Another drive late in the first half, saw Campbell score again from six-yards out to help Burke to a 35-0 halftime lead.

The Bulldogs scored two more times in the second half, one on an 18-yard run from Daniels and the final one was off a botched Northeast punt attempt deep in Rocket territory, where Trent Hymer scooped the ball up at the five-yard line and ran it back into the end zone with 2:09 in the 3rd quarter for a 49-0 lead.

Northeast would avoid the shutout on the ensuing kickoff from Burke's Cole Frahm.  Tivon Phillips received the ball and handed to Xavier Haggan, who ran the ball 95-yards for the Rockets' lone touchdown of the night.

Burke outran Northeast 116 yards to 43 yards on the ground.  Rocket junior quarterback Trevor Peterson was 20-of-34 passing for 161 yards and one interception.  

Burke had a slight advantage for total offense, having nine more yards than Northeast (213-204).
