“Our defense getting stop after stop, allowed our offense to have those opportunities,” Boyer said. “In each huddle, we made sure not to let any mistakes get to our heads and just keep playing our style of football.”

Dylan Smith (19 carries, 159 yards, 1 TD) and Sean Vogel’s 64-yard touchdown pass to Ryan O’Connor, also made up the Huskers’ offensive effort.

Defensively, Jack Tinari led Yorktown in tackles with 9.
