The top ranked Western Dubuque Bobcat football team has been gearing up this week to play the North Scott Lancers for the fourth time in two season when they meet tonight in the Class 3-A quarterfinal game at Buchman Field in Epworth. Western Dubuque head coach Justin Penner says the contest has developed into quite a rivalry. Last season, the Bobcats lost to the Lancers in the regular season and then avenged the loss in the quarterfinals of the playoffs to get to the semi-finals and eventually state championship game. This season so far, the Bobcats beat the Lancers in their regular season. Kickoff will be at 7 o’clock…the winner advance to the 3-A state semi’s at the UNI-Dome next Thursday.
