Niobrara-Verdigre vs. Boyd County Football Game

October 01, 2014

Boyd County came to Verdigre on Homecoming Friday night! The Cougars came out with their first win of the season moving their record to 1-3. The Spartans fot off to an early 14-0 lead, but the Cougars didn't show any sign of surrender as they took the lead before half time making the score 36-20. In the third the score didn't change much, but when the 4th quarter rolled around, Boyd County woke up. They came back almost taking it from the Cougars! However, N-V held on to win their Homecoming game 48-42. One big highlight was senior Jacob Johnson with his 5 fumble recoveries, (one for a touchdown) tying the state record! Jacob also added some very good tackles to his game as well as a couple great catches including a bomb right before half to help the boys with their lead. He really showed up in his final Homecoming game for N-V. With this win, the boys gained a lot of confidence and are going to carry that confidence into their upcoming game on October 3rd in Neligh starting at 3 P.M. If you are able to get away on Friday afternoon, come on out and support your hometown Cougars!
