KEARNEY, Neb. – Not many things feel quite like victory to football athletes. 

Emotions were high on UNK's blue team led by Redshirt Freshman Quarterback Abram Scholting, as well as the white team led by Missouri Western graduate transfer Reagan Jones. 

Last year's spring game was played as an 'offense vs. defense' style, but Friday's game was a one team pitted against another 'blue vs. white.'

Both defenses played well, as only three touchdowns were scored in the game. 

JerQon Conners and Stephen Lewis had reception touchdowns for the blue team, and Tuni Fifita had the reception touchdown for the white team. 

The blue team claimed victory over the white team by a score of 15-10. 

Players like Redshirt Junior Linebacker David Lilly said Friday's game felt like a real one. 

"It was really fun, It's nice to switch it up a bit and have a bit of play trash talk here and there," said Lilly. "At the end of the day we're all the same team, we're all Lopers."

Reagan Jones is a graduate student that transferred from Missouri Western and has the most QB experience on the team by far. His team didn't win the spring game, but he has a very good chance to be the starting QB in the fall.

"Since I've gotten here and gotten introduced to everybody, they've brought me in pretty well," said Jones. "It hasn't been as hard as I thought it was going to be, and I can count on guys to help me out with whatever it is."

Coach Ryan Held's team still has plenty of time to work out the spring kinks before UNK's season opener at Chadron State on August 29th. 

"I'm excited where we're at, but I'm not satisfied, I'm still agitated for greatness," said Held. "We just have to be better, because we came here to win, and that's what we plan on doing."
