A powerhouse running game and some good luck on defense proved to be what Broken Bow needed to pick up its first victory of the season.

Taylor Beck made sure that Central City made a lot of plays to earn its first playoff win since 1989. The Bison senior had two interceptions that set up touchdowns — both of which he would score — and had two sacks. He even threw for a touchdown pass in helping Class C-1 No. 9 Central City grab a 30-7 win over Broken Bow on a cold and rainy Friday night.

For most of the night — all but four plays, to be exact — Grand Island Central Catholic more than held its own against Broken Bow. But those plays made all the difference in the world.
