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.
All streaks must end sometime. After starting the season 10-0, Ansley-Litchfield suffered their first loss of the season Tuesday night at the hands of Twin Loup.
This was the third time these two teams had met this season and it went to a third and deciding set once again.
The Wolves pulled out the 3-2 victory, 25-23, 25-22, 25-20 at the North Loup Scotia-Elba Triangular.
Twin Loup also topped ENLS 2-1, winning 20-25, 27-25, 25-12.
Alex Hart came alive for Twin Loup in this match, recording 20 kills along with 12 by Becca Clark and seven from Madison Kozeal.
SOMERFORD - - In the world of media, there is one thing that sets small town papers apart - community news. Who the Smithâ€™s had over for dinner Sunday may not be important to folks in the city - but in this neck of the woods it is.
MERNA - - The Republican National Convention was filled with rally speeches from high profile people, and days filled with events designed to fire up the party members in attendance. One of those party members, serving as a Nebraska delegate to the convention, was Craig Safranek of Merna.
Craig was only in junior high in 1984, when a teacher got him interested in the presidential election. He remembers watching Ronald Reagan, and being fascinated by the fact that one man could have such a profound affect on the nation and the world.
With much regret, the Broken Bow Board of Education accepted the resignation of High School/Middle School Principal Ken Kujath Monday evening, effective July 31, 2013.
Kujath will finish the year at Broken Bow, and says he only submitted his resignation this early to give the board ample time to secure a replacement.
He will have served the Broken Bow school district for seven years, and will be taking advantage of the teacher retirement plan.
â€śI really love what I do. I am doing this now for my familyâ€™s long-term security,â€ť Kujath explained.
LINCOLN -- Broken Bow received top honors Friday from the Nebraska Diplomats, the non-governmental arm of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, as the Governor Dave Heineman and Nebraska Diplomat President Jeffrey Scherer presented Broken Bow Mayor Cecil Burt with one of two Community of the Year awards. The community of Wisner was also so honored.
â€śIt is a tremendous honor,â€ť reflected Custer Economic Development President Melissa Garcia. â€śIt is an amazing validation of what the people of Broken Bow have worked so hard on for the past several years.â€ť
