Elmwood-Murdock Football - Coaches Comments
The Elmwood-Murdock Knights defeated the Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinauer Titans 41 – 0 Friday night during a Homecoming contest in Elmwood.
The game was suspended at halftime due to HTRS lack of numbers due to injuries. You don’t want to end the game like that but HTRS has been struggling most of the year with a lack of available players and injuries. We respect their decision and they did what they thought was best for their program. I was pleased with the way we started the game.
Our offensive line gained control of the line of scrimmage and set the tone for the evening. The Knights rushed for 284 yards and 18 first downs the first half. Five different players scored touchdowns as the offense rolled.
Defensively there were some standout players. Payton Frahm had 6 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for 35 yards in lost yardage and Caleb Marlatt had 3 tackles behind the line for 8 yards in lost yardage.
The pressure applied by our defensive line kept HTRS from getting much going offensively. Noah Willey had an interception for the Knights. Brownell-Talbot has forfeited their season. The 2017 season has come to an end for the Elmwood-Murdock Knights. They finish with a 4 – 5 record.

Set in the bustling1960s, Bernard is a swinging bachelor who has the world on a string: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses whom are all engaged to him at the same time without knowing about each other. However, Bernard’s life encounters turbulence when his friend Robert comes for a visit and a new speedier Boeing jet throws off his carefully planned itinerary.

The bevy of beautiful stewardesses are played by Aubree Sweeney of Plattsmouth, Brenna Thompson of Lincoln and Abigail Fletcher of Omaha.
