    Broken Bow actually put on a show in the Class C dual championship final this past weekend, but not with out facing some adversity at first.

    The Indians actually had to forfeit their first match, giving up six points to start the final.

    "You get one big win and we just keep carrying that on. Gave up bonus points early but we got them back and fought back as a team," said Spencer Gaffney.

    After taking a quick lead back, suddenly Broken Bow found itself down to Aquinas Catholic of David City. but players refused to give up.

    "We kind of knew going in there they would be tough, but we knew if we just got on a roll and started getting some pins we could come back and be fine with them. I just think once someone gets a pin everyone gets excited. Everyone gets fired up, starts freaking out and then it just momentum builds and you can't stop it," said Cole Ulmer.

    The Indians entered the weekends tournament as the top seed in class C, now thats in the rearview mirror with a look ahead to states.

    "Came up short last year, came in second. Ultimately looking for a team title and just looking out for my team. Not looking out for myself to get a state title individually but I want my team to succeed," said Gaffney.

    Districts are this weekend and obviously the Indians will be looking to send off as many people as possible on that trip to Omaha.
