11/02/2018 - CLASS A FOOTBALL: Watts' INT Helps Burke Take Momentum Away From Southeast

By Jeff Motz

OMAHA---Just as Lincoln Southeast's offense was finally picking up steam in the third quarter, Xavier Watts spoils the fun.

Watts picked off a pass on a key third quarter play and helped set up a scoring drive to help Class A No. 1 Omaha Burke defeat the Knights 35-13 in the quarterfinals of the Class A state football playoffs Friday night at Burke Stadium.

After Southeast scored a touchdown to pull to within 14, the Knights recovered an on-side kick at the Burke 48-yard line.  Southeast quarterback Coleby Daffer on fourth down threw a pass that was intercepted by Watts.

That set up a six-play, 68-yard drive capped on a James Burks 3-yard touchdown run to extend the Burke lead at 28-7 with under a minute left in the third quarter.

Jaylon Roussell later scored to put Burke up 35-7 with 7:31 left in the fourth quarter.  Roussell also scored in the second quarter and had 104 yards on the ground. 

Burke (11-0) took off with a 31-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Chadwick to Michael Payne III to go up 7-0 with 7:23 in the first quarter.  Then Chadwick found Watts on a 70-yard toss for a touchdown for a 14-0 Bulldog lead.  Chadwick threw 9-of-12 times for 187 yards.

Southeast (7-4) didn't score until just under five minutes left in the third quarter, when sophomore quarterback McGuiness Schneider went on a 14-yard touchdown run, which then help set up the recovery of the on-side kick.
