The Beef get their first road win

The Beef made just enough plays to edge out the Bucks in an offensive explosion 79-78. What started out as a slow night on offense for the Beef, turned into the most points they’ve scored all season.

The Beef went four and out on the first two drives and went down quickly 17-6 in the first quarter. After a tough game last week against Sioux City, John Gibbs showed what he can potentially be for Omaha. A week ago, Gibbs had one touchdown in the air and two on the ground, but it was the three interceptions that hurt the Beef the most. Saturday night, Gibbs had eight total touchdowns (7-passing/1-rushing) and most importantly, no interceptions. Gibbs found receivers Daniel Mckinney, Brandlynn Clark and Jerimiah Eaton open all game. Mckinney lead the receivers in receptions (6)  and total touchdowns (5), Clark added two touchdowns, and so did Eaton, with one of his touchdown catches coming with under 10-seconds left in the game.

The Beef defense did give up 78-points, but they were forced on the field in bad positioning throughout the game. The defense was able to force the Bucks into field goal situations five times, which helped keep the game in striking distance for the offense.

The win by the Beef kept their playoff hopes alive as the head back on the road to face-off against the Quad City Steamwheelers who they beat three weeks ago. This will be a big test for Omaha because the Steamwheelers have the biggest home field advantage attendance wise.
