Wolfpack Pound Plainview Pirates

October 31, 2013 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

PLAINVIEW — The Wolfpack powered their way through Plainview’s defense Friday night en route to a 42 to 16 victory.
Mother Nature doused any hopes the winless Pirates (0-7) had of derailing the Wolfpack’s playoff hopes at the start of the game, A shower from the west dampened the field as a ‘Bad Moon’ rose on the east horizon, providing perfect conditions for EPPJ to impose their will upon the winless Pirates.
The Wolfpack accumulated 362 yards rushing and the game’s outcome was never in doubt after the second quarter.
Entering the quarter the Wolfpack held a 6-0 lead as a result of a Blake Schrage 14-yard touchdown run. Nine seconds into the quarter the Wolfpack took advantage of a Pirates fumble to score their second touchdown on the night. Pirate Christian Miller mishandled the ball and the Wolfpack’s Peter Starman recovered the ball. Fifty yards away from the end zone, Schrage covered the distance in one play to make the score 12 to 0. The touchdown opened the ‘floodgates’ as the Wolfpack added two more touchdowns in the quarter.

Jim was a life-long resident of Bloomfield, spending all of his time here except while serving in the United States Navy from 1965 to 1969. Upon returning home from Vietnam, Jim worked for Al Ermels in the Gambles Store. He then took a job working for the Department of Roads, where he proudly worked for 37 years. As a local business owner of “The Pub”, Jim could make friends with anybody who crossed his path. He always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face. The Friday before Memorial Day was always a highlight of Jim’s summer, the annual golf outing for the Phi Zappa Krappas! He will forever be remembered in so many ways: fast pitch softball third-base veteran; the jokester; an avid Husker fan; a father, uncle, brother, and Papa Jim. Jim passed away October 23, 2013, at the age of 66 years, three months, and 15 days. Jim leaves behind to mourn his loss his wife, Karen Eisenhauer of Bloomfield, Nebraska; son, Joel (Lindsey) Eisenhauer of Skiatook, Oklahoma; daughter, Jill Eisenhauer of Lincoln, Nebraska; and step-son, Chad (Jen) Warneke of Tilden, Nebraska; six grandchildren, Waylon, Easton, Katie, Keelee, Hayden, and Jaxton; a brother, Rodney (Juleen) Eisenhauer of Bloomfield; a sister, Genie (Denny) Larson of Norfolk, Nebraska; a host of nieces, nephews, and close friends; in-laws, Lee and Marie Smith of Elgin, Nebraska; and sister-in-law, Pam Smith of Orchard, Nebraska.
Jim was preceded in death by his father, Harvey, and his mother, Wanda; and a brother-in-law, David Smith. Jim passed into the arms of Jesus on his father Harvey’s birthday. What a wonderful way to enter into the Everlasting Kingdom.
