The 2019 high school football season kicks off tonight with an exciting area matchup as the Anselmo-Merna Coyotes host the Twin Loup Wolves. Last year’s meeting between the two was a thriller that went to the final minute and this year’s tilt shapes up to be equally competitive. Each team finished with a total of three wins last season and will look to build on that this season. With several schools now forming cooperatives for sports and the NSAA setting schedules, the true area matchup among teams is not as common as it used to be. Twin Loup coach Mike Kozeal told KCNI/KBBN sports that it is special to have an “area” game to start the season.
Coach Kozeal and Anselmo-Merna coach Matt McGinn each visited with Central Nebraska’s Sports Source ahead of tonight’s matchup. You can access the full interviews below.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM and on kbbn.com. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm
