Wayne High Football Set For Quarterfinal Playoff Rematch, Norfolk Catholic Returns As Non-District Opponent In 2020

WAYNE – About three months after the Wayne High football team was eliminated in the Class C1 playoff semifinal, state officials have released the 2020 regular season schedule.

According to a release from the Nebraska School Activities Association, Wayne High will open next season on the road before playing back-to-back at home.

WHS finished their regular season 7-2 winning the final four games to earn the #11 seed in the Class C1 playoff. The Blue Devils won at #6 Kearney Catholic 28-21 before knocking out previously undefeated #3 Ashland-Greenwood (28-13). Wayne saw their season come to an end at the hands of eventual state champions #3 Wahoo (21-7) in Wahoo.

Wayne High will open their 2020 non-district schedule at Logan View/Scribner-Snyder on week one at West Point-Beemer the second week before hosting Columbus Lakeview and Ashland-Greenwood (quarterfinal rematch) to close out the first month of the season.

The first Class C1-5 District game for Wayne will be at Battle Creek in week five before visiting Norfolk Catholic in week six to round out non-district play.

The final three games will all be district opponents of hosting Boone Central week seven, at O’Neill on week eight and hosting Pierce to close out the regular season on week nine.
