Wildcats to open with familiar foe

There shouldn’t be too many surprises Friday night when the Hartington-Newcastle Wildcats travel to Emerson to take on the Emerson-Hubbard Pirates.

This will be the 14th meeting between the two teams in the past 20 years.

Each team has won seven games in the series with Hartington taking the last four in a row. Even though the two teams are dead even in the wins department, the Pirates hold an advantage in the scoring department, scoring 260 points in the series, while the Wildcats have only put up 242 against the Pirates.
