SOLOMON — The Victoria High School football team left no doubt early which team was going to get the second playoff spot out of Eight-Man Division I, District 4.

The Knights poured it on heavy and often in a 56-8 rout of Solomon on Thursday night, pushing its record to 7-2 and taking runner-up in the district behind Osborne.

Collin Kisner had a huge night, rushing 16 times for 153 yards and six scores while quarterback Cooper Windholz added nine carries for 46 yards and a pair of scores, and the Knights secured a playoff spot after last year’s hiatus, and will travel to unbeaten Burlingame next week for the first round.

Osborne 54, Lincoln 0

Osborne wrapped up its district championship in Eight-Man I, District 4 with a first-half blowout. Darnell Holloway passed for 52 yards and three scores, while Denton Schurr rushed for 69 yards and a pair of scores as the Bulldogs enjoyed an early night to wrap up a home game for the first round. The Bulldogs will take on Clifton-Clyde in the first round.

Hoxie 50, Decatur Community 0

In Hoxie, the host Indians wrapped up the championship of Eight-Man Division I, District 8 behind 90 rushing yards for Latham Schwarz, 69 for Chris Box and four combined rushing scores of the two. Jared Kennedy added 84 passing yards and a score as the Indians secured the title despite a district loss to St. Francis, which will wrap up its regular season tonight against WaKeeney-Trego. St. Francis in the points tiebreaker system in the district, needs to win by just 14 points or more to secure the second spot behind Hoxie.

If St. Francis wins by just 13, they will lose the spot to Atwood-Rawlins County, which defeated St. Francis earlier this season. Rawlins County picked up a 56-0 win against Hill City in other action Thursday.

Ness City 60, Wichita County 14

In Ness City, the Eagles did their job, then got some help from Satanta. The Eagles’ win, coupled with Montezuma-South Gray’s loss to Satanta, put the Eagles back in the playoffs this season, earning Ness City a first-round trip to Hoxie next week.

Ness City, South Gray and Satanta all finished 3-2 in district play, but the Eagles took the honor on point differential after posting an 80-50 win against Satanta a week earlier. That district’s champion — Spearville — will play host to either Rawlins County or St. Francis in the first round.

Otis-Bison 58, Hodgeman County 26

The 8-1 Otis-Bison Cougars put the finishing touches on a district championship, thus wrapping up a first-round home game for the Eight-Man Division II playoffs.

The Cougars scored 16 points in the second quarter to create separation, then poured on 20 in the third to pull away from the Longhorns, who will take the runner-up spot.

Blake Bahr and Anton Foust each had three rushing scores for the Cougars, while Bahr rushed for 246 yards and Foust 189 in the victory. Foust also completed one pass for a 34-yard score.

Hodgeman County will play at Northern Valley (7-2) in the first round next week, while Otis-Bison will take on Sylvan-Lucas (8-1), the runner-up out of Eight-Man II, District 5.
