La Plata Hosts Bevier in Battle of Conference and District Rivals

The La Plata Bulldogs will host the Bevier Wildcats Wednesday evening in a battle for district seeding. Both teams are hovering around the .500 mark and are in Class 1 District 13. La Plata coach Matt Safley says a win here could make a big difference.

The seed meeting is Saturday. La Plata hasn’t lost to Bevier in the spring season since 2013, but Bevier did beat the Bulldogs this past fall 11-3. Safley discusses the keys to reversing that result.

Bevier is seeking its first winning spring season since going 11-2 in 2017. The Wildcats went 8-3 in the fall. Coach Jed Cook says they’re playing with renewed confidence.

Cook adds the keys to success are pretty straightforward.

Pregame coverage from La Plata will begin at 4:45 on KTCM 97.3 and Colin Schowe will have the play-by-play.
