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.
