The Milbank Area Bulldogs are pumped up for Friday night and hope to down the Aberdeen Roncalli Cavaliers with home field advantage. “It’s always nice to collect a win at AB Campbell Stadium,” stated Bulldog head coach Jeremy Tostenson.
The two teams have battled in heated contests throughout the years and the Bulldogs have often come up short. Milbank Area hopes to change that Friday night and extend its record to 2-0.
Roncalli stands 1-1 heading into the contest. The Cavaliers cruised to a 35-0 win over Redfield-Doland in their opening game of the season before falling 28-6 to St. Thomas More last week. According to Tostenson, Roncalli’s senior quarterback, Braden Sommers, is athletic and makes plays throwing and running.
Tostenson said there are three major goals to help his team come away with a win. “We need to execute our offense. Defensively, we need to keep their quarterback in check and get off the field on third downs.”
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. A tailgate meal of walking tacos begins at 5 p.m. and is sponsored by the Milbank Police Department and the Bulldog Special Olympics. 100% of the proceeds go to fund Special Olympics.
