The BVNW football team defeated Blue Valley High school, 31-28, tonight. The team improves their record to 3-2 and continues their winning streak that began last week with a victory over the previously undefeated BVW football team.

BVNW won the toss and elected to receive the ball to start the game.  With 6:04 left on the clock, senior wide receiver Brett Henning scored the first touchdown of the game on a pass from senior quarterback Jacob Rominger.  The extra point was scored by Bryan Gish, making the score to BVNW 7 and BV 0.  At the beginning of the second quarter, senior wide reciever Jaquwan Stone scored another touchdown for BVNW, and with an extra point, BVNW increased their lead to 14-0.  However, the Tigers retaliated moments later on a touchdown by senior Mikey Hanson, making the score 14-7.  With 4:55 left in the half, Bryan Gish scored a 25 yard field goal, gaining three more points for the Huskies.  In the last three minutes of the second quarter, BV scored another touchdown, leaving the Huskies in the lead for the first half.  With 10:56 left in the third quarter, the Tigers scored a touchdown, obtaining their first lead of the night with a score of BVNW 17 to BV 21.  The Huskies retaliated and took back their lead, scoring a touchdown with five minutes left in the third quarter.  For half of the fourth quarter, the score stagnated at BVNW 24 to BV 21.  With 6:32 left on the clock, the BV Tigers scored a touchdown and made an extra point.  Moments later, junior running back Miles Alexander scored on a 65 yard run to give the Huskies the lead. The BVNW defense held the Tiger offense for all four downs on their ten yard line, and when BV was unable to score, the Huskies claimed a victory.

Senior quarterback, Jake Rominger said the win was a big victory for the Huskies.  The team came out and fought to the very end. Head coach, Mike Zegunis said he was ecstatic about the win and very proud of the team. He said they were a better team than last week, and the Huskies hope to continue improving for next week’s Homecoming game against BVSW.

“It was a really tough, hard fought game and there were a lot of times when things didn’t go our way,”  Zegunis said.  “But they battled through it and overcame a lot of adversity and came together as a football team and found a way to win.  So, as a coach you always hope that your kids do that, so it’s nice when you see it happen.”
