The Palmyra Panthers defeated the Elmwood-Murdock KnightsThe Palmyra Panthers defeated the Elmwood-Murdock Knights 26 – 15 last Friday night in Palmyra.
Palmyra scored on their 1 st possession on a 18yard touchdown pass from Koby Dillon to Drew Bessey. The Knights answered right back with a 10 play 61-yard drive. Andy Meyer finished the drive with a 2-yard run.Payton Frahm kicked the PAT to give the Knights a 7-6 lead. I was very pleased with how we responded after their 1 st TD. We methodically moved the ball down the field and answered their TD with one of our own. Palmyra pinned the Knights down to their own1 yard line in the middle of the 2nd quarter.
The Knights utilized a strong rushing attack and marched 99 yards down the field in 10 plays. Austin Meisinger capped the drive with a 47-yard keeper down the left sideline. EM made a 2 pt. conversion and took a 15-6 lead late in the 2 nd quarter. We moved the ball extremely well the first half. TheKnights earned 16 first downs on the evening.
Palmyra responded with a big play of their own when Drew Bessey took a tunnel screen pass from Koby Dillon and scored from 71 yards out. Both teams punted on their next possession and the half ended on a Riley Backemeyer interception at the EM 22 yard line. We wanted to stop the big play and make Palmyra have to run the ball. We did not align correctly on Bessey’stouchdown and it cost us along with several missed tackles. We were moving the
We wanted to stop the big play and make Palmyra have to run the ball. We did not align correctly on Bessey’stouchdown and it cost us along with several missed tackles. We were moving the ball well in the 3 rd quarter and on a 3 rd and 3 we had a back go the wrong way causing a fumble in the backfield. That was costly because on the very next play we had an error in the kicking game giving Palmyra a short field. The mistake led to a 65-yard loss in field position and eventually Palmyra scored to take a 20-15 lead at the end of the 3 rd quarter.We played well the first half but had too many mistakes the 2nd half. We have to clean some things up across the board to get to where we want to be.
The Knights travel to Yutan next Friday for a District matchup. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
If you can't make it to the home games you can watch them LIVE STREAMING on the Elmwood-Murdock Striv Channel.

Husker Fans Salute the Troops 2017
Husker Fans Salute the Troops 2017 – The mission is to salute Nebraska Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines: active duty, national guard, reserve, retired and veterans, to say “Thank you for your service to our Nation” so they know the Husker Nation will never forget their sacrifice and dedication.
This is an unprecedented event in the history of military support to the Armed Forces. This weekend hosts troops and their families from all services, of all ranks, to come together and cheer on their team as they play Purdue on October 28th, 2017.
This weekend is more than just a watch party, though. It is a chance for these servicemen and women to be treated like the heroes they are with an all access, private tour of Memorial Stadium and a brunch in their honor.
2017 marks the tenth year for this event. 2008 was the first year held during the OU game and attended by about 70 troopers and their families. Since then we have had to limit our attendance as it has grown to nearly 500 attendees. Each year we try to improve the troopers experience and being our tenth year we are expecting this to be the best.
