Rachel Hoesing served for seven points, five that came in the third and final set.
Clara Vinton served for six points, Jessica Lovitt and Amber Wright each recorded five points and Madison Tomlinson tallied four points.
Hoesing played the net well and recorded 16 kills and four ace blocks.
TAYLOR--Loup County used a 24-point third quarter and a powerful defense to upend Arcadia 48-6, the final match-up between the two schools.
Loup County and Sargent are co-opting football teams starting next fall.
With the co-op, the two schools are ending a rivalry that dates back to 1978.
The defenses for both teams dominated the first quarter, but Loup County started to find their offensive groove in the second quarter.
Brandon Barker took the delayed handoff and scooted for a 43-yard touchdown run.
The Wildcats added the two-point conversion and led 8-0.
MERNA--Anselmo-Merna used 28 first-half points and a late defensive stand to stymie Mullen 36-30.
The Coyotes quickly put points on the scoreboard.
A-M quarterback Joseph Christen scored on a three-yard plunge and A-M converted the two-point conversion to take an 8-0 lead.
After forcing Mullen to punt the Coyotes quickly found pay-dirt. It was Christen again, this time through the air, connecting with Jake Wells for a 52-yard touchdown pass.
A-M converted the two-point conversion before the Mullen found themselves down 16-0.
CHADRON--It was a long four-hour drive to Chadron last Friday for the Broken Bow football team. The Indians made sure the bus ride back would be fun after toppling Chadron 29-14 and in the process keeping their playoffs hopes alive.
Broken Bow opened the scoring when sophomore quarterback Marcus Miller connected with Nate Hanson for a 20-yard touchdown pass. The extra point was missed and Broken Bow led early 6-0.
Chadron would respond when Coby Riesen scored on a five-yard run. The Cardinals added the extra-point and led 7-6 after the first quarter.
