Broken Bow picked up its third straight victory Thursday night with a 3-0 (25-15, 25-11, 25-15) win over Ravenna Thursday night. It was their second straight victory over Ravenna this week after downing them 2-1 in the previous matchup.
The Indians took control right away and didn't let up, particularly in the second set. Broken Bow jumped out to a 12-2 lead before siding out.
Playing together as a team and with unity has been a big key to the success as of late.
This past Sunday, the Bucaneers and Giants made waves when first-year head coach of the Bucaneers Greg Schiano (formerly the coach at Rutgers) had his defense knock the offensive line back into Eli Manning when he was taking a knee, setting off the volcano that resides in Tom Coughlin's belly.
So they griped during the handshake and Coughlin sneered and Schiano stood his ground, saying that he was simply instructing his players to play until the final whistle.
Remember when you were little and you went to all these birthday parties for your friends?
There was always that one kid that was so entertaining because he or she did stupid stuff simply because he didn't know any better. As many of you know, after awhile, the jokes just weren't funny anymore.
This fall, that so called kid is the entire body of the replacement NFL officials.
After winning the first two games of the season, Broken Bow was put back on their heels in a big way, losing 49-7 to Cozad Sept. 14.
With Broken Bow being a run heavy offense, they got a taste of their own medicine as Cozad running back Jake Paulsen had a big day on the ground, rushing 25 times for 209 yards and scored four touchdowns.
His longest was a 41-yard dash to the end zone that gave the Haymakers their first touchdown of the second half.
