POTTER - Senior Andy Maloley rushed for 163 yards and had four total touchdowns, including one receiving, and No. 6 Pawnee City upset No. 3 Potter-Dix, 62-47, in the quarterfinals of the Nebraska School Activities Association Class D6 state football playoffs Friday afternoon in Potter. 

Sophomore Jett Farwell added 147 rushing yards, 62 receiving yards, and four total touchdowns. The Indians (8-2) had a total of 455 yards of offense, including 314 rushing and 140 passing. 

The Coyotes were led by senior Luke Kasten. He finished with 309 yards rushing and threw for another 54 yards with six total touchdowns. 

His cousin, junior Brayden Kasten, chipped in 125 yards passing and two touchdowns, one to Luke and another to senior Alex Anton. Brayden injured his throwing hand in the first half when he intercepted a pass and tried to return it down field. 

Potter-Dix (9-1) had 515 yards of total offense in their final game of the season, a year after finishing runner-up in Class D6. The Coyotes scored a record 109 points in their first round win over Brady last week, that included 725 yards of offense.

The Indians lost to the Wolves in the first round of the 2020 playoffs, 55-8. It's the third-straight year Pawnee City has been in the postseason.
