PLATTSMOUTH – The Plattsmouth football team could not hold on to a 14—0 second half lead and eventually lost to the Blair Bears 21-14 in overtime at Blue Devil Stadium in the season opener for both teams on Friday evening.

The Blue Devils scored on a TD pass the first time they had the ball and took a two-touchdown lead in the third, but the Bears scored on an 11-yard run with 7:38 remaining, then tied the game with just 1:44 to go. That’s how the fourth quarter ended.

“We didn’t tackle well,” Plattsmouth Coach Bob Dzuris said.
