The Neligh-Oakdale Warriors were on the grid iron Friday night for some tough action at Burwell.
The team suffered a 53-30 loss against the Longhorns, despite some great plays.
Head Coach Ron Beacom said his team is a little banged up right now.
"We need to continue to work on building our depth for staying healthy and depth to increase our competition level at practice so that we can continue to improve."
Pepper Marchant and Tyson Belitz both scored two touchdowns for the Warriors.
The coach said the boys have more work to do in practice, but he has faith in his team.
Beacom said, "we have built a solid enough foundation in the first two games for us to have a very good season and a football team to be proud of at the end of the year."
This will leave the Warriors with a 1-1 record for the season and they will face Wakefield next Friday at home.
