The last few seasons of Class B football have seen a lot of the same faces in the playoffs, with certain programs rising to success time and time again.
York's Brady Danielson was sure of his decision to sign to play basketball for Division II Northern State. But that changed when Northern's head coach of nine years, Paul Sather, accepted the same position at North Dakota in late May.
KEARNEY, Neb. — Joseph Krause and Carter Terry are Class B quarterbacks who tried to deal fits to York and coach Glen Snodgrass the past three years.
Most of all, York football coach Glen Snodgrass taught Garrett Snodgrass how to play football fast and fearless, so well that Garrett was one of the state’s best players, leading his team — Glen’s team — to a state title.
Tyson Gordon scored 38 points Thursday to lead Omaha Skutt to a 77-64 win over York in a first-round Class B game at the boys state basketball tournament.
Coming into the B-5 district final Monday night at York High School, the Platteview Trojans were hot, winning their previous eight games. But with a trip to the Class B state tournament on the line, the Trojans were stopped cold in their tracks and instead subjected to a 32-minute nightmare they couldn’t wake up from.
The York Dukes and Aurora Huskies have turned in some heavyweight bouts against each other on the basketball court in recent years.
Friday night at York High School was the setting for a top-10 showdown in Class B boys basketball between Central Conference rivals — the Seward Bluejays and York Dukes — separated by only 28 miles.
Noah Stafursky turned down a scholarship from Division II power Northwest Missouri State — owner of national titles in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and a 39-game winning streak it took into 2017 — to walk on for the Huskers.
It’s been five years since the York Dukes boys basketball team was Central Conference champs. But the Dukes will need to wait another year for a crack at the title.
Baylor Scheierman’s career-high 38 points carried the Huskies past Seward 66-63. They will play York, a 53-45 winner over Adams Central, in Saturday’s 7:45 p.m. final.
YORK – It appeared a few minutes into Tuesday night’s matchup between the Norris Titans and the York Dukes, rated No. 4 in Class B, that the latter was the superior team by far.
YORK — With its senior leader Brady Danielson sidelined with an injury in the first couple minutes of action, the Class B No. 4-rated York Dukes boys basketball team needed a full team effort Tuesday night on the road against the stingy Central Catholic Crusaders in Grand Island.
Behind a game-high 26 points from Garrett Snodgrass, the York Dukes boys basketball team won the York Holiday Tournament with a 71-53 victory over the Platteview Trojans.
The Elkhorn Antlers boys basketball team played soft man-to-man defense, packed the paint and protected the dribble drive Friday in the nightcap of the York Holiday Tournament against the host Dukes at York High School.
Cade Reichardt is a nice second option for Aurora and the Huskies are better on defense than they have been. Those are two significant takeaways from Aurora’s 63-42 win over defending Class B champ York before a nearly full house Friday night in the Duke Dome.
Duke senior Brady scored eight of his game-high 26 points in the fourth quarter as York survived a Lexington second half rally to post the 58-50 win in Class B boys’ basketball Saturday night.
WAVERLY — The York boys’ basketball team’s starting five were headed to the bench in Thursday night’s game at Waverly with just under five minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
The Waverly Vikings, rated as the No. 8 team in Class B scored the first six points of the third quarter and rolled to a 46-30 win over the No. 5 York Dukes on Thursday night in girls hoop action.
Coming into Thursday night’s season opener at home against the Ralston Rams, York boys basketball head coach Scott Lamberty wanted to see, among other things, good player and ball movement on offense with a strong defensive effort on the other end.
York’s full-court pressure and half-court defense more than shouldered the load for an offense that may take time to find a rhythm early in the season. The Dukes beat the Rams 52-14, and it was a good way to start the year.
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. — The last time York played a football game in Scottsbluff was 2012.
Sabastian Harsh threw five touchdown passes to Keegan Reifschneider as Scottsbluff rallied from a 24-point halftime deficit Friday night to defeat Omaha Roncalli 60-38 in the Class B quarterfinals at Bearcat Stadium.
Adversity hit on the first play for the York Dukes Friday night in a Class B quarterfinal against the Seward Bluejays at East Hill Stadium.
Led by a relentless downhill rushing attack and a few nicely-timed passes down field, York advanced to the quarterfinal round of the Class B playoffs with a 35-14 win over the Alliance Bulldogs Friday night at East Hill Stadium in York.
With Joseph Krause, Seward is never out of a game. Same with Garrett Snodgrass for York, but Friday night the Husker pledge almost wasn’t in the game.
