Four teams are left in the state playoffs; Omaha Burke, with an 11-0 record, will face Omaha Central, 10-1. Southeast, who also has a 10-1 record, will play Papillion-La Vista. The games will be played Friday night. The Knights faced a big challenge last Friday against the Patriots. “Their defensive line played very well the first half and we had to adjust, also their quarterback was very athletic,” said head coach Ryan Gottula. “Southeast has a tough task this week going up against the Monarchs,” he added.” We’re working really hard in practice. We have to be able to stop their offense, they have a good passing attack.” One word that describes this year’s team according to Gottula is: “Leadership.” The seniors this year have all done a good job of keeping the team focused, according to Gottula.
