The Anselmo-Merna Coyotes will travel to Mullen for a showdown with the Broncos on the KBBN area game of the week tonight. Both teams will look to rebound after season opening losses. Mullen fell to Hemingford on the road in week one 36-31. It was the first regular season loss for the Broncos since the 2015 season. Wade Marsh is in his first year as Mullen head coach taking over for long time coach Mitch Pfeiffer. Marsh, a standout player for Mullen in the 90’s, told KCNI/KBBN sports it has been exciting and a dream come true to be able to coach his alma mater.

Anselmo-Merna is coming off a 44-22 loss to Twin Loup at home in week one.  Head coach Matt McGinn  said that even though there was disappointment and some frustration he has been very pleased with the attitude his players have shown in practice this week as they prepare for this week’s challenge against the Broncos.
