After forcing a three and out, Jeremy Christner did most of the work on the next drive, punching it in from two yards out and putting Bow up 14-0 with 4:36 left in the first.

When the Jonas family returned from their trip to the corn palace in Mitchell, South Dakota, their daughter Anya had brought back plenty of hardware.
The 4-year-old from Broken Bow held the trophy for the National Pedal Pull Championship for her age group.
Anyaâ€™s â€śGrandpa Kenâ€ť, as they call him, is involved in tractor pulls and the family felt Anya might have the right qualities to be successful at it.
