Previous NBC seasons

Logan View pulls away

Oct. 23- Eli Vosler scored on a 11-yard run three minutes into the second quarter. His PAT kick then made it 7-6 North Bend. A goal-line stand by NBC as the half expired assured NBC of its first halftime lead of the season. The Raiders regained the lead with a 4th-and-goal pass from the nine-yard line to make it 12-7 game with 6:33 left in the third. On its next possession, LV hit a 51-yard scoring pass to take the wind out of the Tigers' sail. Logan View tacked on a couple of fourth quarter TDs for a 32-7 win. North Bend ends the 2009 season with a 1-7 record. Logan View improved to 2-6.


NBC seizes late victory

Press play for video highlights

Oct. 16- West Point-Beemer outplayed NBC for most of the first half, but thanks to an Eddie Ruskamp 1-yard touchdown on a quarterback draw the Tigers trailed just 7-6 at halftime. The Cadets started the second half by returning the opening kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown to take a 13-6 lead. With 6:38 left in the game and West Point still leading by seven, NBC took over at its own 21-yard line. After a couple of pass completions, Eli Vosler broke a 34-yard run to the Cadet 16-yard line. On 4th-and-one, Vosler ran the ball in for a touchdown from six yards out, making the score 13-12 with 2:51 left. Coach Tony Allgood elected to go for two, and again Vosler bulled his way into the end zone for the conversion and a 14-13 lead that would hold up for NBC's first win of the season.

Tekamah spoils NBC Homecoming

Oct. 9- The North Bend offense showed as much spark as it has all season, but the Tigers were still denied the end zone in losing to Tekamah-Herman on a cold but calm Homecoming night. The Tiger defense played well especially in the first half when they held T-H to three points on two trips to the end zone.

Eagles fly past NBC

Oct. 2- Make it three straight games in the rain for North Bend. The Tigers suffered their third shutout of the season in a 21-0 in Arlington's homecoming game. NBC felt better about its performance this week though.

Gators slip by Tigers

Sept. 25- In a second straight rainy game, North Bend fell to Wisner-Pilger 36-6. NBC came out with good fire and looked outstanding during its first couple of defensive possessions, but the offense continued to sputter. Trailing 16-0 in the third period, Connor Emanuel scored NBC's first offensive touchdown of the year on a two-yard plunge. Emanuel was playing his first game at running back after being moved from quarterback. Freshman Eddie Ruskamp got the start at quarterback. In the end a couple of interceptions and two or three blocked punts helped Wisner-Pilger to its first win of the year by a score of 36-6.

Schuyler pounds NBC

Sept. 11- Just as in the previous two weeks, NBC's opponent had three touchdowns in the first quarter. The Tiger defense made Schuyler work at times, but NBC's offense could not get anything going all night long.

Wayne bedevils Tigers

Sept. 4- Wayne scored three touchdowns in its first 11 plays to jump out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. North Bend's deepest penetration was to the Wayne 31 yard line, where they turned it over on downs. The highlight of the game for NBC was a 60-yard punt by Eli Vosler in the first quarter.

Braves too much in opener

Aug. 28- Battle Creek scored 26 points before North Bend recorded its initial first down midway through the second quarter. The lone bright spot for the Tigers was sophomore Kale Wietfeld's slithering 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Wietfeld's romp made the score 20-7 and gave NBC a little confidence and helped stem what looked like a runaway for Battle Creek. The two teams remained scoreless for nearly two quarters before the Braves scored the lone second half touchdown with 9:34 to go in the fourth quarter to make the final score 32-7.

Schedule flip-flops for '09

North Bend's football schedule for the 2009 season will be the same as last season, except the home and away games will be flipped. With the NSAA's two-year scheduling, the Tigers' district will also remain the same: Wisner-Pilger, Arlington, Tekamah-Herman, West Point-Beemer and Logan View.

The 2009 season will also mark the return of Tony Allgood to the sidelines. After seven years coaching at Grand Island Northwest, Allgood will be back as NBC's head football coach this fall, a position he held for 10 before leaving for Grand Island. In his first go-around at North Bend, he compiled seven winning seasons and a 55-34 overall record.

The Tigers' will have a lot of shoes to fill after the graduation of a large and talented senior class this spring. NBC will have the advantage of playing in what last season was one of the weakest districts in the state. Only North Bend, at 5-4, posting a winning record last season of all the teams in the district.

Once again, North Bend will be playing Battle Creek in zero week, meaning they will start the season a week earlier than most teams. The early game results in a bye week later in the season, giving the Tigers a free weekend after the Schuyler game and heading into district play.
