NORFOLK – Sixteen point deficits to Winnebago don’t just go away.
Boone Central/Newman Grove had to earn their come-from-behind victory over the Class C1 #3 team. After managing just 17 points in the first half, BC/NG matched Winnebago’s up-tempo style, opening the second half on an 11-2 run and eventually chipping away at the lead. The Cardinals ended up scoring 46 points in the second half, 27 of which came in the 3rd quarter.
The Cardinals earned a trip to state by beating 20-win teams in three straight games – O’Neill, Broken Bow and Winnebago. Their next opponent will be a familiar one at state, Broken Bow again. The Cardinals have beaten Broken Bow twice already this season.
