It’s another big football Friday around the area today. The Broken Bow Indians will look to bounce back following last week’s loss to Kearney Catholic. Broken Bow is now 4-2 on the season and right in the thick of the state playoff picture for Class C1. Broken Bow will be on the road tonight for a district matchup with Holdrege. The Dusters are 2-4 this season and will be looking to snap a two game losing streak. KCNI/KBBN Sports visited with Broken Bow head coach Carlie Wells about tonight’s matchup. Coach Wells said that one of the areas of focus in practice this week has been mental preparation and being able to recognize and react to certain situations on the field.
