Watching the Norfolk Catholic defensive front on film led Falls City coach Darin Fritz to believe the Knights would making moving the ball difficult. Turns out, it was nearly impossible as Norfolk Catholic's top unit limited the Tigers to 20 yards of offense in the first half of a 42-0 win in the first round of the Class C1 playoffs at Veterans Memorial Park.

Falls City may be his home, but Weston Witt sure likes being in the Nebraska City gymnasium. Monday night, he scored 19 points — including the game-winning basket with 1.9 seconds left — as the Tigers defeated Boys Town 50-48 for the C1-1 boys basketball championship and a return to the Class C-1 state tournament.

If Norfolk Catholic had its mind on a possible second-round rematch with Class C1 No. 1 Boone Central/Newman Grove, the consideration wasn't enough for the Knights to look past Falls City in Friday's first-round playoff game at Veterans Memorial Field -- at least at the start.
