09/01/2017 - FOOTBALL: Southwest Defense Causes Problems For LSE


By Jeff Motz

Last week in their 69-34 rout of Papillion-LaVista, Lincoln Southwest showed their toughness on offense.

Friday afternoon, the Class A 10th-ranked Silver Hawks showed they were capable of being pretty rugged defensively, as they defeated No. 6 Lincoln Southeast 21-14 before a reporter estimated 5,000 fans at Seacrest Field.

Southwest (2-0) capitalized on a Southeast fumble in the second quarter, when Jayce Conklin recovered the ball at the Knights' 24-yard line.  Ten plays later, Caden McCormack ran the ball into the end zone from two-yards out.

The Silver Hawks scored on their next drive, when Anthony Banderas ran 32-yards for a touchdown, leading 14-0 at halftime.  

As Southwest was warming up, Southeast was ready to strike back.  Opening drive of the second half, the Knights put together an 80-yard drive capped on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Jampe Gergen to Jack Strong.  The Silver Hawks countered, this time a 68-yard touchdown pass to Preston Green, extending their lead to 21-7.

Southeast managed to drive 80-yards and with 11:57 remaining in the game, Wisconsin recruit Bryson Williams carried the ball into the end zone to cut the deficit at 21-14.

Offensively, Southwest cooled off.  But their defense came through when the Knights drove down field, as they blitzed the pocket forcing Gergen to throw a pass into the hands of Taylor Boutmahavong for an interception.  

Southwest ran out the clock and held on for the win.

Quarterback Jakob Ahlschwede threw for 173 yards and a touchdown for the Silver Hawks.
