It was a long-standing rivalry game in Dyersville Friday night, with Beckman hosting Western Dubuque. And Western Dubuque came away with the win for the second year in a row under the direction of second-year head coach Justin Penner. The Bobcats beat the Blazers 22-12.
Penner was impressed with the way his young team played.
After a loss to the West Delaware Hawks in week one of the season, the Bobcats are 1-1 heading into district action. They’ll start off districts with a home game against Maquoketa on Friday night.
