    The Nemaha Central Middle School football team played a tough opponent, the Silver Lake Eagles on Thursday, September 28. During the first quarter, the Thunder scored first and added the two point conversion. Later in the quarter, Silver Lake got on the board with a touchdown of their own. At the end of the first quarter the Thunder came ahead with a two point lead 8-6.

    In the second quarter, the Thunder scored first once again when Kurtis Beck sent a pass to Marcus Beck for a fifteen yard touchdown reception. On the 2-point conversion, the Thunder quarterback, Kurtis Beck, broke his collarbone in the endzone while converting the extra points. That was followed by Silver Lake scoring with a long pass and a touchdown to close the NC lead. Cooper Hajek, the backup quarterback, replaced Beck and the Thunder team was able to maintain their lead 16-14 at halftime.

    “We played good for the first half, but then we fell apart” said Kurtis Beck.

    The change of quarterbacks caused the Thunder to have to alter their game a bit. The Thunder team struggled to get the offense clicking in the second half. The defense let up and the Eagles scored several touchdowns in the third quarter. By the end of the third quarter, the Eagles were on top 32-16.

    In the final quarter, the Thunder team was still unable to score any more points. The Eagles however gained 8 points, getting the game victory 40-16.

    “We were winning at the start of the second half, 16-14, but it stinks that we still lost,” said Cayden Edelman.

    The Thunder may have lost, but they have upped their game since last year. The Thunder hope next year they will have improved enough to take the Eagles down.
