10/30/2015 - CLASS B FOOTBALL: Andreasen Adjusts To Help Pius X Win Over GINW

By Jeff Motz

GRAND ISLAND---He's a fullback, but Jakob Andreasen can play running back, too.

Well, he adjusted at the last minute Friday night.  

It didn't phase the Lincoln Pius X junior, has he ran for 195 yards and one touchdown to help the Thunderbolts to a 14-0 victory over Grand Island Northwest in the first round of the Class B football playoffs at Viking Field.

Andreasen found out before game time that he would be the starting running back, after starter Brock Wordekemper was coming down with a migraine headcache just before kickoff.

Pius X Coach Tim Aylward opted not to play Wordekemper and go with Andreasen.  
It paid off.

Fullback Chris Cassidy scored Pius X's first touchdown, a three-yard run on the Bolts' second drive for a 7-0 lead with 2:11 in the first quarter.

After Spencer Scheer intercepted a Christian Ellsworth pass and returned it 30 yards to the Northwest 28-yard line, the Thunderbolts went up 14-0 with 5:05 left in the second quarter after Andreasen's drive into the end zone.

Northwest (6-4) couldn't muster their passing attack in the rainy conditions.  But the Vikings did drive to the Pius X 2-yard line early in the fourth quarter and on 4th and 2, Ellsworth's pass to Tanner Lierman went incomplete when Lierman could grab what appeared to be an under-thrown ball.

A brief Pius X drive resulted in a punt and Northwest with the ball, getting a first down past midfield.  On the next play, a pass was caught by Viking receiver, but squirted out of his hands and the ball was recovered by Thunderbolt rush end Bailey Deterding. 

Pius X ran out the clock and sealed the win.  The 'Bolts will now host Omaha Skutt in a rematch of a game from Oct. 2, which the SkyHawks won in triple overtime.
