Scottsbluff Returns to State Final with 63-56 Win Over Roncalli
OMAHA - A hard count on fourth-and-two, with less than two minutes reaming, ensured Scottsbluff would be returning to the Class B state title game.
The Bearcats were looking to hold onto a seven-point lead and stave off a rallying Roncalli team by keeping the ball out away from the Crimson Pride. After a timeout, Sebastian Harsh's hard count caused several Roncalli linemen to jump, allowing Scottsbluff to run out the clock.
In a game where both quarterbacks shined, Harsh led the Bearcats to the 63-55 victory with 349 yards rushing, 219 yards passing and eight total touchdowns. Roncalli signal-caller Jack Dotzler wasn't far behind with 457 yards through the air and six TDs. The senior added another rushing touchdown.
Scottsbluff will face Omaha Skutt in the Class B State Championship. A rematch from last year's state title game that the Skyhawks came out on top of 48-27.
