Nebraska wins 6-Man All-Star Game
June 5th, 2023 | Con Marshall

Quarterback Noah Eggleston threw touchdown passes to four different receivers and his teammates also scored on four rushing plays Friday night as the Nebraska All-Stars handily defeated Wyoming 52-16 in the 12th annual Battle of the Border 6-Man Football Game played at Chadron State College.

Eggleston, a recent graduate of Sumner-Eddyville-Miller High School, initially put the Nebraskans ahead 12-0 by connecting on passes to Dylan Naslund of Cody-Kilgore and Carson Glunz of Wallace.

Nebraska scored three more touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 32-8 halftime lead.  Two of those TDs came on runs of 43 and 12 yards by Chandler Page of state-champion Parkview Christian, located in Lincoln.

The Nebraskans also scored twice in the first four minutes of the third quarter, one of them on a 25-yard sprint by Ben Ely of Red Cloud.  The winners got their final score early in the fourth frame on a 25-yard pass from Eggelston to Andy Maloley of Pawnee City. 

Luke Kasten of Potter-Dix was among Nebraska’s defensive standouts.  He probably participated in at least half of his team’s tackles.   

Wyoming had won the three most-recent all-star clashes, including a 68-44 verdict last year, but it all Nebraska this year.  The all-time series is now deadlocked at 6-6.
