Pleasanton playing for first state title in school history

PLEASANTON, Neb. (KSNB) - The Pleasanton football team has had quite the season to remember. But they aren't done just yet.

Pleasanton players get announced before their semifinal match up against Overton.

The Bulldogs (10-2) will be playing in the Class D-2 State Championship game tomorrow against top seed Humphrey St. Francis (12-0) at 2:45 p.m.

The Bulldogs entered the playoffs as a seven seed, but after their round two victory over second seeded Kenesaw, they proved it was time to throw seeding out the window.

Now the Bulldogs are just one win away from their first state title in school history, and the team couldn't be prouder to represent their school and community.

"It would just be fabulous. It would be great to give back to the community. These kids deserve it, and we're just going to go down and play our hearts out and let the chips fall where they may," said Pleasanton football coach Ricci Westland. "If we did come home with that title, not just for Pleasanton but for the community surrounding area here, it would just be great."

"I mean they were excited for us making semifinals and to make it they are just jumping with joy," said senior Jakson Keaschall. "So to win it all, I don't know what this town would do it would be pretty crazy."
