EMF defeats Southern, gears up for playoffs

EMF vs Southern

EMF travelled to Wymore to meet Southern for a Thursday evening game to give them a full week to prepare for playoffs.  Before the game started there were sprinkles but it cleared up just in time for kick off.  

It didn't take long for the Bobcats to start pounding on the Raiders.  After kicking off to the Raiders the Bobcat defense held them to just three and out.  EMF took the ball and ran. With 8:08 left in the first quarter Brecken Schluter found the end zone making the score 6-0.  

On the next Bobcat possession Tyler Due kept the ball and added a touchdown and a toss to Draven Payne for a two point conversion.  14-0 with 2:54 left in the first quarter. Bobcat senior Schluter had one more touchdown left in him the first quarter with :52 seconds left he scored and Due snuck across the line for the two point making it 22-0.

Just two minutes into the second quarter, Mikey Bartu found paydirt as he broke through the Raider defense for a touchdown.  Due kept the two point and crossed into the end zone 30-0.

The Raiders couldn't catch a break as Schluter intercepted their pass and ran down to within five yards. Draven Payne carried the ball in for six but the two point attempt failed. 36-0

Aidan Vavra recovered a Raider fumble and Schluter capitalized on the Southern mistake running in for six and catching the two point toss from Due to make it 44-0.  The Raiders did find the end zone before the end of the half making it 44-8 but as the halftime show warmed up so did the lightning.  With storms all around the game was officially called at half.

Throwback Thursday: 10/06/2013



On Friday, September 27, the fifth grade class participated in a Mystery Skype. A Mystery Skype is a program used with the video messaging system, Skype, where students use questioning and deduction skills to figure out where the other class is "Skyping" from. After asking a series of yes or no questions, we were able to pinpoint the location of the other fifth grade class. They were from Council Bluffs, Iowa.


The fifth grade had a great time as this was their first Mystery Skype. They can't wait to do this again throughout the year.


This year, the Exeter-Milligan Elementary have been very fortunate to go 1:1 with iPads.  This means that each child in the elementary has their own iPad to use in the classroom.  Pictured are the 3rd graders busy on their Ipads.  We have been using many apps on them to study our math facts, take quizzes, and review for tests.  We have loved getting to use them everyday and try new things in our classroom!

A Funeral Service  for Lori L. Brandt was held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Cordova, with Rev. Nile Buch, officiating.

The Fillmore County Development Corporation (FCDC) in cooperation with the Fillmore County schools, the Young Leaders of Fillmore County (YLFC) and local businesses held a Career Day for the juniors in the county on September 25th.  The format for the day involved having the students go to the business locations, rather than the business people coming to the school.


Three tracks were developed so students had a choice and could decide what area interested them the most.  The tracks were Agriculture and Industrial Systems, Education, Health and Human Services, and Business, Marketing and Finance. 


Mary Kay Pribyl's Math Matters class at Exeter-Milligan is reviewing the different sets of numbers. As we discussed which sets several rational and irrational numbers belonged to, we also put these numbers on a number line across the room.


Make a Difference Day” will be observed again this year in Exeter by the G.F.W.C. Exeter Woman’s Club on October 15th.


This event is one of the nation’s largest days of serves and takes place each October in America.


The Woman’s Club members in Exeter prepare plates of cookies and as they deliver the plates to the Exeter Care Center and to people in the community they take time to visit with them as well.


Congrats to the Fillmore Central Exeter-Milligan Softball team as they won the district playoffs beating Friend 8 - 0 this afternoon!  Good luck at State Ladies!

Also, the Exeter-Milligan Timberwolf football team beat the 4-0 Freeman Falcons 68-14 tonight in Milligan.


The Fillmore County Development Corporation (FCDC) hosted staff from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and economic development consultants from Nebraska Public Power District and Black Hills Energy, on September 27th.

The group toured throughout Fillmore County and had the opportunity to see the available industrial sites and buildings in Exeter, Fairmont, and Geneva. Patt Lentfer, Director of the FCDC, also shared information about the communities and businesses throughout the county.
