We are getting down to winning time

Quarterfinal action in the high school football playoffs

And we've got you covered here on the fifth quarter

Alongside the venerable Ed Littler

I'm Will Sherratt

And Ed ...this time last season

The Grand Island Islanders ...were sitting at home

Watching the postseason

But this year...a much different story

GI ...just two wins away from Memorial Stadium

But first ...they'd have to get through #3 Omaha Burke

.We go to Burke on a nice night for football.

Omaha Burke jumps on top with a long pass for a touchdown covering 80 yards. It turned out to be a close, competitve game all the way.

We see Burke scores again.

Later it was GI quarterback Pierce Almond on the keeper.

Grand Island came from behind to win the ballgame 36-35 and they will host Omaha North in the semi finals Friday night at Memorial Stadium in Grand Island.
