It will be another busy football Friday around the area today. Broken Bow will be on the road tonight as they travel to face the Kearney Catholic Stars. Kearney Catholic is 3-1 this season and is ranked #8 this week in Class C1 by the Omaha World Herald. The Stars are led by Nebraska quarterback recruit Heinrich Haarberg who is averaging 169 yards passing per game with 6 TD’s and one interception. Broken Bow is coming off their first win of the season. The Indians completed a dramatic comeback against O’Neill last Friday winning in overtime 41-33.
