NORFOLK - A flurry of offense late in the first half jump-started what had been a stagnant offensive performance, vaulting the White Team to a 21-14 win in the Northeast Nebraska All-Star Football Classic.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Red Team (coached by Wakefield's Mike Hassler) lit up the scoreboard with a picture-perfect pitch and catch from Norfolk Catholic's Carter Janssen to Lutheran High Northeast's Tate Collison.

But the White Team (coached by Riverside's Cory Valasek), after struggling offensively for much of the half, broke open scoring when they scored on a direct snap to fullback Hank Hudson of Boone Central.

White scored under a minute later, with Boone Central's James Fogleman connecting with Elkhorn Valley's Dawson Hansen to give the White a 14-7 lead at the half.

After adding a Parker Borer rushing touchdown in the third, the Red Team struggled to regain their footing, but they did have a chance late.

After Riley Sudbeck of Hartington-Newcastle scored on a quarterback keeper in the final two minutes, the Red Team got the ball back with 48 seconds to go. 

But a Sudbeck pass intended for Collison was tipped by Elgin Public/Pope John's Dylon Lueking and intercepted by Oakland-Craig's Lincoln Benne to seal the win.

The win was the seventh all time for the White, and fifth in the last six games.
