The Broken Bow Indians football team will travel west tonight to take on the Ogallala Indians. Bow is coming off its first win of the season last week against Minden. Broken Bow jumped out to a 12-0 lead at half but saw Minden come back with 14 unanswered points to reclaim the lead. Minden then had the opportunity to add to their lead but were held on fourth down and goal. The Indians then proceeded to march 96 yards for the go ahead score and then scored on an interception return for a touchdown to win 24-14. Head coach Mike Garner told KCNI/KBBN sports that he was very impressed with his team’s mental toughness in last week’s win.
Tonight Broken Bow will face Ogallala. The Indians from the west are off to a 2-0 start with wins over Holdrege in their opener and Valentine last week. Ogallala is ranked #10 in Class C1 by the Omaha World Herald. Coach Garner talks about tonight’s opponent and the challenges they will present.
