The undefeated Eagles are headed to the Class C1 State Championship.
O'Neill dominated Boys Town for much of the night, topping the Cowboys 27-13, to advance to their first championship game since the 1980s.
O'Neill got the scoring started on a short pass from quarterback Alex Thramer to Justin Appleby. Shayne Campbell then went 38 yards to push the lead to 14-0, Eagles. With just over a minute remaining in the first half, Thramer and Appleby connected once again to extend the lead to 21-0 going into the break.
In the fourth, Thramer sealed the game on a one-yard sneak to prevent the Cowboys from mounting a comeback.
The win sends O'Neill to Lincoln in search of their first-ever state championship. To earn the title, they must take down Bishop Neumann. The game will be played at Memorial Stadium on Tuesday, November 22 with kickoff set for 2:45 P.M.
