Kearney Rallies to Defeat Gretna 30-28

Kearney rallied to overcome a two-touchdown deficit and defeat Gretna in this NSAA Championship second-round Class A matchup.

It was a back-and-forth contest where the momentum shifted unpredictably.

Gretna scored first, and it seemed like everything was coming up Dragons for a while courtesy of Zane Flores.

Kearney’s Kaden Miller caught the first touchdown pass from Preston Pearson to get the Bearcats on the board.

Miller got into the end zone again with a second-quarter pick six to tie the game for the Bearcats. After a James Dakan field goal put Kearney up by three, it seemed that the Bearcats had found their stride. They were soon up 24-14 and cruising into the third quarter.

Not so fast. Mark Staley grabbed a pick six of his own for Gretna, and the score was suddenly within three points again.

Both Kearney and Gretna would score again in this contest; The Bearcats with a 5-yard run by Parker Wise and the Dragons with a Jackson Alexander 10-yarder. But the Bearcats came out on top, slaying the Dragons 30-28.

Kaden Miller was the player of the game for the Bearcats, making contributions on offense, defense and special teams.

The Bearcats will move on to the state quarterfinals for the first time since 2017.
