Class B girls’ soccer: Omaha Scott, Columbus Scott Roll; Moretz dedicates a big game to his grandfather | High School Football

Welcome to Episode 29 of The Lincoln Journal Star’s Prep Extra Podcast.

Omaha – Girls’ soccer programs at Omaha Scott and Columbus Scott are nothing new to this.

The No. 2 Class B SkyHawks were making their 25th consecutive appearance in the Official Football Tournament on Wednesday at Morrison Stadium. Later in the afternoon, the No. 4 seed Shamrock played in his 25th Tournament.

Both rolled to decisive victories.


Soccer scores and schedules

Omaha Scott dominated from the opening kick, scoring five goals in the first half en route to a 7-1 win over Elcorn North, seeded 6. Then Columbus Scotts sent No. 10 Northwest 5-1.

Presley Douglas earned an Omaha Scott (15-2), who started with a goal eight minutes into the game. One minute later, Elisabeth Rosenthal made the score 2-0. Two Skyhawks, Reagan Moretz and Josie Osman, scored two goals each in the game.

The goals gained additional meaning for Moritz, whose grandfather died overnight.

“I woke up this morning and got the news,” Moretz said. “It was hard knowing I should go out here and play a game, but the first thing I thought I would do it for was.

“It was all. It was with me.”

Scott’s Lauren Van Dolen also scored a goal. SkyHawks had 17 shots, five saves, and nine corner kicks.

In another first round match, Northwest defeated Columbus Scott (16-2) for 18 minutes. But then it worked.

Libby Brzezinski scored in the 19th minute to break the ice, followed by consecutive goals from Lacey Hart in two minutes. Brzezinski made it 4-0 shortly before the break.

“We knew we had to put pressure on them quickly,” Columbus Scott coach Kristi Brzezinski said. “They have a great midfield game, they can pass and have the ball like crazy. We knew we had to put in some goals to relieve a little of that pressure.”

Brzezinski added another goal in the 48th minute.

“Usually when we score it’s like a bang-bang-bang game,” said Libby Brzezinski. “We have a high level of adrenaline, and we like it, ‘We have to get the ball back.'” “

Temperatures were around 95 degrees during the match – and that doesn’t include the humidity and heat from the pitch.

It’s brutal,” Kristi Brzezinski said. “It’s hot out there, and we knew we were going to have to play, so everyone was ready to step in. We lost one with the AFC Champions League today and the other with a hip, so that’s a shame on Saturday.”

Shamrock will meet 2nd seed Omaha Scott in the semi-final match on Saturday afternoon.
