KEARNEY — Not even one of the more lopsided losses in Nebraska Shrine Bowl history could dampen the spirits of Doniphan-Trumbull’s Jordan Slough and Sutton’s Cole Wiseman on Saturday.
Five turnovers proved too costly for the South team in a 30-7 loss at the University of Nebraska-Kearney’s Foster Field.
The North was led by Creighton Prep quarterback Easton Stick, who garnered offensive MVP honors after running for 94 yards and a touchdown as well as throwing for a team-high 124 yards. Back-up quarterback Brad Brazeal of Bellevue West threw for 123 yards and a score, while the North’s secondary shined as it grabbed three interceptions.
Wiseman, a former quarterback, started at the slot receiver position for the South and ended with two rushes for 11 yards. Slough also played slot receiver, finishing with three catches for 11 yards.
The duo also started on kickoff return and punt return for the South, while Wiseman was a gunner on the punt team.
Late in the fourth quarter, Wiseman had his biggest play of the game on special teams when he returned a kick 31 yards. Slough had a 5-yard kick return earlier in the game.
