Adams Central QB passes Frost’s record

Adams Central quarterback Evan Johnson passed a couple of Class C-1 records during the first half of Friday’s game against Kearney Catholic.

Johnson eclipsed Scott Frost’s career passing yards record, which was 6,793, as well as former Kearney Catholic star Matt Masker’s career completions record (486).

Johnson threw two touchdowns in the first four minutes as No. 3 Adams Central built a quick 14-0 lead en route to a 37-14 win.

Another record-breaker

Hastings outscored Beatrice 64-56 Friday, thanks to Jarrett Synek, who threw a Class B-record nine TD passes. Omaha Roncalli’s Jack Dotzler had set the record last year by throwing for seven touchdowns.

Almost another record

Diller-Odell outscored Lincoln Parkview 98-70 in an Eight Man-2 game Friday. That fell just short of the state record for an eight-man game, which is 176 points.

Close call for No. 1

BRLD, ranked first in Class C-2, got a touchdown pass in overtime from Will Gatzemeyer to Jaxon Johnson to edge Fremont Bergan 42-36.

BRLD’s defense stopped Bergan’s possession after that score. BRLD, which plays unbeaten Oakland-Craig next week, trailed 21-12 at halftime before taking a 36-28 lead with 3:41 left on another Gatzemeyer-to-Johnson connection. Bergan (6-2) answered with 1:07 left.

Matchup of Class B surprises

The regular season ends next week and one of the week’s top games features two 7-1 teams, Hastings against Grand Island Northwest. Neither program had won more than six games in a season since 2007, when Hastings was 8-3.

Other top matchups include C-1 No. 1 Wahoo vs. No. 5 Columbus Scotus (its lone loss is to No. 2 Pierce) and Eight Man-1 No. 2 Wakefield vs. No. 5 Wisner-Pilger.
