On the road in the playoffs and facing a higher ranked team. It’s a familiar scenario for the Bear River football program. It’s also a situation they’ve fared well in.

The Bruins have played four postseason games at their opponents’ place since 2015, and in each instance came away with an upset victory.

Bear River will try to make it five straight when they travel to Hilmar to face the No. 2 seeded Yellowjackets (9-1) tonight in the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section D6 playoffs.

Game starts at 7 tonight. Get live coverage here:
