11/09/2018 - CLASS B FOOTBALL: Cold Weather Can't Cool Skutt's Offense Over Waverly



By Jeff Motz

WAVERLY---It seemed like the cold weather had the best of the Omaha Skutt and Waverly football teams to start.

But it was a spark for Skutt just before halftime to help build momentum in the second half and hold on for a 34-14 victory over the Vikings Friday night in the semifinals of the Class B state football playoffs at Viking Stadium.

With a kickoff temperature at 17 degrees, neither team offensively could heat up.  Two fumbles and a failed fourth down attempt later, Skutt capitalized on some Waverly penalties and marched 45-yards.  

The drive was capped with 12 seconds left in the half, when quarterback Ryan McCormick threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jarod Epperson that gave the Skyhawks a 7-0 lead.

Epperson, who had 218 yards rushing, then scored on the third play of the second half, breaking out for a 50-yard run that put Skutt up 14-0.  But, when Waverly marched down field and got to the Skyhawk five-yard line, Tyson Gordon intercepted a Rhett Jordon pass.

Skutt (12-0) put together a four-play, 95-yard drive capped on a 50-yard touchdown pass from McCormick to tight end TJ Skradski for a 21-0 lead.

Waverly (9-3) got to mid-field on their next possession, when Kaleb Canoyer broke away for a 50-yard touchdown run.  He appeared to have been stopped, but he fell on a Skutt defender, spun off of him and ran for the touchdown.

Epperson scored his third and final touchdown late in the third quarter to put the Skyhawks up 27-7. 

Jordon, who combined for 267 yards of total offense, scored a touchdown for Waverly off a sneak play to close the gap to a two-possession game.  But McCormick sealed it for Skutt on a bootleg play, running 24-yards for the touchdown.
