Tonight the KBBN area football game of the week will feature the Arcadia/Loup City Rebels. ALC fell in their opener to Fullerton in week one 34-26 but bounced back strong with a 76-36 win over Shelton last Friday. Coach Mike Scott told KCNI/KBBN sports that the Shelton game was closer than the score may have indicated. The Rebels set the tone early with their defense creating some early scoring opportunities and were then able to pull away in the second half. Coach Scott said that one of the things that has been a focus in practice this week has been improving play on the offensive line.
As ALC prepares to meet North Central, coach Scott says that one of the major keys will be the Rebels ability to defend the pass.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM and on kbbn.com. Coverage will begin with the Consolidated Companies Friday Night Lights pregame show at 6pm. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm with Jeremy Shipe and Larry Cotnoir on the call.
