The Yankton Bucks advanced to the semifinals of the class 11-AA football playoffs last night with a 17 to 0 victory over the Huron Tigers.

            The Yankton defense forced three turnovers in the win. Tucker Gilmore had a fumble recovery as well as Matthew Sheldon who ripped the ball from a Huron runner to give Yankton an extra possession. The biggest turnover on the night was caused by Austin Gobel, who returned an interception for a touchdown.

Gobel Pick 6 10-26-23 – (:14) “… Bucks touchdown.”

            Gobel’s defensive touchdown would be the final touch on the Bucks 17 to 0 win, as neither team scored after the play.
