LINCOLN — A slow start offensively for both teams offensively gave way to a frantic final two minutes in Class D-2 No. 3 Exeter-Milligan’s 52-45 win over No. 5 Red Cloud in Thursday’s first round at Lincoln Southwest.

When it came down to crunch time, Heartland Lutheran was ready. The Red Hornets put on a big run in the fourth set Friday against Red Cloud to pull the match away in a 25-16, 25-20, 18-25, 25-19 win over the Warriors, at Heartland Lutheran High School.

As you drive into Milligan from the north, the right side of the road has the Exeter-Milligan players’ and the coaches’ names listed on signs. Then very last sign says “One Team, One Mission.”

With the 13 wins last year and a perfect 8-0 regular season in 2014, the Exeter-Milligan Timberwolves won their 21st consecutive game Friday night with a 50-6 thumping of the Red Cloud Warriors.
