Oh, what the difference a year makes. Last year, the Pirates were the up-and-coming team, while the Broken Bow Savages were the established team. The Pirates traveled over the mountain to Broken Bow with one goal, to defeat the Savages and gain the fourth playoff slot. A good effort was not enough as the Pirates lost and saw their playoff dreams and aspiration go down the tubes.
