Throughout the summer, The World-Herald will prepare you for the high school football season with a story previewing a new team or teams each day. This week, Eight Man-1 is featured, with Nos. 10-5 today.

For the second time in two weeks, West Holt defeated Niobrara/Verdigre. But unlike in their 64-57 win on Feb. 7, the Huskies never relinquished control in a 63-45 win in a Class C2-6 subdistrict semifinal here Tuesday.

The Atkinson West Holt Huskies improved to 7-1 and solidified the opportunity for a playoff run in class C2 with a solid 27-12 win over Lutheran High Northeast Friday night at Veterans Memorial Field.

With 2:14 left in its 13-7 win over Hartington Cedar Catholic here Friday, West Holt missed a golden opportunity to put the game away. But 10 seconds after Cedar Catholic's Capp Bengston fell on teammate Grant Leise's fumble at the West Holt 3-yard line with the Huskies leading 13-7, the Huskies recovered a fumbled quarterback exchange at the 6 and then ran the clock out on their fifth win of the season.
