After having trouble last week, things aren't likely to get any easier for Overton (4-3). This Thursday it takes on Hemingford (6-2) in the first playoff game of the year. Overton might be a bit distressed seeing as how its point totals have been consistently dropping over the past three games.
Overton is still above.500 but has been slipping the past two games. There's no need to mince words: it lost to South Loup two weeks ago, and it lost bad. The score wound up at 51 - 8. Overton was in a tough position by the half, with the score sitting at 43 - 0.
As for Hemingford, everything went its way against Morrill three weeks ago as it secured a 58 - 6 win. No one had a larger role in the success than junior Justin Davis, who brought his A game into the contest. He earned four touchdowns and 202 yards rushing the ball. Davis has been a consistent playmaker for Hemingford as this was the 7th good game in a row from him. Senior Conner Swanson banked an additional two TDs for the team.
The last time they met, Hemingford was the clear winner with a 36 - 7 finish. Overton couldn't get the same offensive movement going as Hemingford (344 yards compared to 180 yards), so it will surely be hoping to change that this time around. Will Overton avenge its loss? We'll find out soon enough.
