Lourdes Central Catholic not distracted by Johnson-Brock injuries, preparing for another tough battle

NEBRASKA CITY, NE – Lourdes Central Catholic will play their first game as a ranked football team this season. The Knights have been placed in the #9 position in the Class D1 rankings with a 3-2 record.

Nebraska City Lourdes’ two losses have come to Class D1 #1 GACC (5-0) on Sept. 16 and a season-opening loss on Aug. 26 to Falls City Sacred Heart (4-0), who is ranked #3 in Class D2.

The Knights will host D1-1 district rival Johnson-Brock (3-1) Friday night at Pioneer Field in Nebraska City. The winner of the game expects to be in the drivers seat for a district championship.

Senior quarterback Hayden Miller says the Eagles have sustained a few injuries this season, but it hasn’t slowed them down and he expects to see a battle Friday night.

“Our whole team is going to come out with a lot of fire, knowing it’s our last home game. I just hope we have a large crowd there, because it’s going to be a great game. It’ll be four quarters of a battle, so it’ll be exciting.”

Lourdes Central Catholic was scheduled to play Diller-Odell at home on Oct. 14th, but due to a scheduling conflict with Nebraska City Public Schools, the Knight’s final game of the regular season will be played at the Oak Bowl on the campus of Peru State College.

Not only will it be the final regular season game in Nebraska City for seniors Miller, Kade Olsen, Mason Lee, Dylan Paap, Brock Hogeland, Ivan Valdovino, and Colton Davis, but it is also the Knights’ Homecoming. The Homecoming King and Queen will be crowned at halftime.

Kickoff is set for 7:00 and can be heard on 103.1 FM, B103.fm or on the B103 app. Pregame begins at 6:30.
