The Nemaha Central Thunder remained unbeaten after a 26-0 win on the road over Perry-Lecompton on Friday night.

The Kaws got off to a good start by stopping Nemaha Central’s offense on their first drive of the game. However, things turned quickly as senior Cooper Kramer intercepted Perry-Lecompton quarterback Tristan Gorden at the Kaws’ 19-yard line.

On the very next play, Thunder sophomore quarterback Carter Hajek hit junior wide receiver Sam Nordhus in the endzone for a touchdown to put them up 6-0.

Nemaha Central got their second score on an end-around from senior Carter Rottinghaus for a 23-yard touchdown to give the Thunder a 12-0 lead.

Hajek found the endzone with his legs for back-to-back scores of 69 and 26 yards which gave them a 26-0 lead at halftime.

The Thunder’s defense continued to be relentless in the second half with senior cornerbacks Aidan Broxterman and Rottinghaus not allowing anything behind them.
