Moberly Opens Conference Play Hosting Kirksville

Moberly begins NCMC play Friday when it hosts Kirksville. The Lady Spartans are coming off a third place finish in the Fatima Comet Classic last week. Coach Tony Vestal thought it was a productive week.

Kirksville ended Moberly’s last season with a 42-39 win in the district semifinals after splitting the regular season games. Coach Nick Totta’s Lady Tigers have started this season 1-2.

The 1-1 Moberly boys defeated Oak Grove 53-29 last week for coach Brett Boyer’s first career win. Boyer is excited to lead the Spartans against rival Kirksville for the first time.

The Tigers are 2-1 and coach Tyler Martin says it’s been an up-and-down start to the season.

You can hear Kirksville at Moberly on 99.9 The Captain with pregame starting around 6:15. Austin Ward will have the call.
