    For game four of the Nemaha Central Middle School football season, the Thunder played one of their best rivals, the Centralia Panthers.  With losing the last two years against this team, the Thunder boys were ready and hyped up to win the game. The NC Thunder team had studied the Centralia offense and were ready to defend them.

    I was excited because I was playing against my cousins,” said Brendon Feltner.

    Starting off in the first quarter, the line blocked well resulting in a Thunder touchdown by Blake Korber. Sam McWilliams completed a 2-point conversion giving the Thunder an 8 point lead. Defensively, the NC Thunder team had stopped Centralia on their drive forcing them to punt. After the punt, Blake scored another touchdown, but the Thunder team did not make the 2-point conversion. By the end of the first quarter, the NC defense had done their job, holding Centralia scoreless and leading the game 14-0.

    In the second quarter, both teams fought a battle to score but that appeared to be far from happening. Then with 35 seconds left on the clock, the game became chaotic with each team scoring 2 touchdowns in that amount of time. Centralia had scored a touchdown off a long pass and scored on their 2-point conversion. NC had answered with a long run from Blake Korber resulting in a touchdown and topped it off with the 2-point conversion. After those 2 touchdowns, the score was 22-8 with NC leading the way. Next, the Thunder team kicked the ball to Centralia and Centralia scored and converted on the extra points. The Thunder team rolled right back with a kick return of their own at the end of the quarter. They converted on the 2-points making the score 30-16 at halftime.

    In the 2nd half, Blake Korber struck again scoring a touchdown off a handoff and the 2-point conversion was good. That made the score, NC 38 to Centralia’s 16. The ball had gone back and forth up and down the field, but neither team scored for the rest of the quarter leaving the score 38-16.

    The final quarter started out great with an interception from Messiayah Nolte. That lit the fire in the NC team as Sam McWilliams ran it in for a touchdown a few plays after the great defensive play. The 2 points were not converted leaving the final game score 44-16.

  “The game was going to be hard but I knew we were going to win,” said Blake Korber.

    After the regulation game, a fifth quarter was played giving young talent from each team the chance to get on the field and do 10 plays of offense and defense.

    For Blake and Sam, this was one of their highest rushing games contributing to NC’s 44 points. Overall, this was an amazing game for the Thunder. The NC Thunder is now 3-1 on the season. They are now looking to overcome their previous losses against Silver Lake and take the win. NC is up for the challenge against Silver Lake, and Silver Lake will give one right back.
