Five more weeks for regular season football and it should shape up to be a good ending.

 

After a miserable loss to Shallowater in week 5, the Cubs traveled to San Angelo last Thursday to take on Lake View and Brownfield traveled back home with a win and to double their wins from last season. Progress? I think so! Coach Toliver has gotten the Cubs in position to have a winning season and perhaps a good playoff run. Tomorrow night the Cubs take on a familiar foe of Seminole. The Indians not only stayed in Class 4A, but they also moved up to Division I for football. The Indians are 3-2 and did not get to play against Levelland last week because of the weather. With Seminole’s week of rest and size, they just might have what it takes to win. However, Brownfield is wanting to get one more win in before they have their bye. Seminole will edge out Brownfield.

Denver City put up some points last Friday night against Reagan County 49-6, and they did that on the road. The Mustangs come in 3-3 for tomorrow nights game against Crane. The Golden Cranes had a slow start to the season going 0-2, however, Crane has won four straight games and is now 4-2. Denver City is going to need to stick to the game plan if they want to see a victory tomorrow night. With the inconsistency that DC has displayed this season, not sure how they would be able to handle a hot Crane.

Greenwood is coming off a three-game winning streak and looks as if it won’t stop. Sitting at the top with Monahans in district at 2-0, Greenwood will host Pecos who comes over to JM King Memorial Stadium with a 1-5 record and has been outscored 199-44 during their five-game losing streak. Greenwood is looking extend their winning streak to four games and will do so handily.

Plains took a well-rounded loss last week to the #5 Clarendon Broncos 47-0. It could have been worse than this. The Cowboys have had two wins this season and are looking to get to 3-3 after tomorrow nights district opener against Springlake-Earth. This is a very winnable game for the Cowboys, all they need to do is stick to the plan and have no turnovers. Also, two things that might help the Cowboys is that they have played some tough competition and the game is at home. For Plains in this game, the silver lining will be that they don’t have to travel after a loss.

Seagraves took some time off last Friday and perhaps regrouped and maybe healed a little bit before district begins. The Eagle travel up to 4-1 Farwell whose only loss came to Friona who is a 4-1 Class 3A Div. II school. As a side note, Friona is probably in the hardest 3A Div. II district in the state. I digress, Seagraves is looking to go to the playoffs and Farwell wants another district title. Both teams are no stranger to the playoffs and this game will surely set the pace of how important it be when they play Bovina.

Tahoka also took some time off last Friday night and boy did they need one after their three-game skid. Of course, Tahoka’s three straight losses came from Brownfield, Littlefield, and the #6 2A Div. I Sundown Roughnecks. So honestly, the Bulldogs don’t have anything to be ashamed of. Well, tomorrow evening Tahoka should get back to their winning ways when they travel about 19 miles to their newfound inner-county rival of New Home. The Leopards elected to go 11-man from 6-man the next two years because they feel that their enrollment on the next UIL Realignment will bring them up anyway. New Home has a lot to learn in 11-man football simply because they are 0-5 and have been outscored 223-32. The Bulldogs should get their first district win and begin their hunt for a district title.

Meadow has a bye this week.

Ropes might have been a bit lucky last week when the weather canceled the game with Ira. The Eagles share a district where the total combined win/loss record is 7-20. To be quite honest with you, many thought this would be a strong district. Ropes will travel over to Morton tomorrow night who is 0-6 on the season. The Indians come down officially to Class 1A and six-man football, and after their outlaw season last year many had high hopes for Morton. Ropes will get the district opener win.

Wellman-Union had an opportunity last week to go 3-3 against Loop however the weather decided against that. The Wildcats get to host Whiteface tomorrow evening for their district opener. Both teams have two losses apiece. They both have played similar teams such as Sands and Witharral. WU lost to both and the Antelopes lost to just Witharral and beat Sand by one point. This game is kind of coin toss, so with that, I’m going with Whiteface.
