MABEN â€“ There won't be much need for scouting the next opponent for the East Webster Wolverines.
As members of Class 2A, Region 2, the Wolverines and rival Eupora Eagles met twice during the regular season.
East Webster won an 8-2 decision at home and also defeated the Eagles in Eupora, but the result was much closer at 7-5.
The two teams will meet at least two more times and possibly three over the next few days and there will be much more at stake than just bragging rights.
The Class 2A North championship is on the line as the Wolverines host the Eagles tonight at 7 p.m., then the series shifts to Eupora Friday at 1 p.m., and if needed, the third game will be back at Cumberland Saturday at 6 p.m.
East Webster coach Wes Johnson had a feeling that the two programs would cross paths again this season.
"We knew early in the season when we played them that they were a good team," Johnson said. "It seems to me that they have really put things together here lately. I have the most respect for their program. I told coach (Brad) Mitchell about three weeks ago that we'd see them again and it's coming to be."
