The KBBN area football game of the week tonight will take place in Loup City as the Arcadia/Loup City Rebels will play host to Anselmo-Merna. Both teams are 4-3 this season and will look to strengthen their power point numbers for the Class D1 state playoffs which begin Thursday, October 22nd. Arcadia/Loup City started the season 0-2 but have won 4 of their last 5 with their only loss in that span coming to undefeated Burwell 28-22. The Rebels were somewhat shorthanded early in the season because of injury but head coach Mike Scott told KCNI/KBBN Sports that the team has been able to get some of their key pieces back healthy coming down the stretch.
The Anselmo-Merna Coyotes have put together a solid season as they have navigated their way through a strong strength of schedule. AM head coach Matt McGinn told Central Nebraska’s Sports Source that it has been a “fun” season and he has been very proud of what his team has been able to accomplish.
Tonight’s game between ALC and AM will be broadcast live on KBBN 95.3 FM and on kbbn.com. Coverage will begin with the Consolidated Friday Night Lights pregame show at 6pm with the kickoff scheduled for 7 pm.
