PINE BLUFFS, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After two straight weeks where Wyoming News Now’s Friday Night Frenzy Game of the Week showcased 4A squads, Week 2 will feature a 1A 9-Man game.

#1 Niobrara County (Lusk) travels to #4 Pine Bluffs for what may be the first real test for both teams.

Last week, PB dominated Riverside 30-0 and Lusk did not play, winning via a St. Stephens forfeit.

Both teams made it into the 2020 State Playoffs. The Tigers went all the way to the title game before losing to Southeast 47-28 and the Hornets were a first-round out, losing to Shoshoni 48-6.

Pine Bluffs Football Head Coach Will Gray said his squad is tacking better this year.

“You know our 0 Week scrimmage we tackled really well and then last week, Week 1, we finally tacked for the first time in two years,” said Gray. “Standing on the sideline, you could hear pads popping and the kids were just… they were enjoying being physical.”

The Pine Bluffs-Niobrara County game will be one of four games highlighted on this week’s Friday Night Frenzy. The show begins after news and weather in Friday night’s 10 p.m. Wyoming News Now broadcast.
