STAR OF THE GAME: Marty Williams rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 200 yards and three more touchdowns in the Predators’ first-round playoff win.

Team officials said Williams appeared to have suffered a neck stinger but should be OK.
WHY SOUTHSIDE CHRISTIAN LOST: The Sabres (7-4) could not capitalize in the red zone until too late.
