BENNINGTON, Neb. (AP) - Lottery officials say a Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold to a married couple from Bennington.

Brad and Kim Brunk claimed their prize Tuesday. Their ticket matched the first five numbers in the July 30 Powerball drawing but missed on the Powerball number. The ticket was sold at a Cubby’s convenience store in Bennington. A ticket sold in Raymond, New Hampshire, matched all the numbers to win the $487 million jackpot.

The Brunks told Nebraska Lottery officials that they used the jersey numbers of Kim Brunk’s favorite Chicago Cubs baseball players for their ticket numbers. The Brunks say they’ll use the money to pay bills, set up college funds for their children and grandchildren and save for retirement.
