Pender (17-2) hosts Lyons-Decatur Northeast (4-14) in the first round of the East Husker Conference Tournament Friday night.

The Cougars won 37-30 at home over Madison Tuesday night in action aired on 107.9 the Bull.

The Pendragons beat LDNE in Lyons 65-13 on January 5th.

I look for Pender to win in similar fashion Friday night.

I look for the Pendragons to be one of the main contenders in this conference tournament.

I fully expect Pender to be playing next Saturday at Midland whether that’s for the Championship or 3rd place.

The Pendragons are a very good team that should be feared by the rest of the field.

Friday night’s game is scheduled to tip-off at 7:30 p.m.
