The Brownfield Cubs are now one game better than last season sitting at 3-1 with a huge shutout win over the Mules 39-0. After the loss to Slaton in week two, the Cubs have made the necessary adjustments to put some wins on their record. In most programs week five is considered mid-season and we already know who will most likely have a winning record. As for the Cubs, well one thing is certain, they are not afraid to play teams who most people expect to win, and win big. That is the case this Friday night when the Cubs meet up with the #10 Shallowater Mustangs at Cub Stadium. These two teams are familiar with each other, however, they have not met up since 2015 and both teams have new coaches. The Cubs are going to need a solid offensive and defensive and a turnover-free game in order to stay up with the Mustangs. The Mustangs will go home 5-0.

Denver City took another hit Friday night and is 2-2 on the season after a 20-14 loss to Idalou. The Mustangs will host tomorrow night a 2-2 Seminole team that has some similarities. They are both 2-2 and have played two of the same teams which are Pecos and Idalou. DC dropped both games to 27-26 to Pecos and 20-14 to Idalou, while Seminole blew out Pecos 47-6 and lost to Idalou 21-12. Seminole went up in a division this past realignment and DC went down in a class, so typically by size, the favorite in this match-up would be Seminole. With both schools being arch rivals, this game will be played with a lot of heart on both ends. This is a home game for the Mustangs and that will help them edge out the Indians.

Greenwood finally received a win after two dreadful weeks of losses, both coming from a hot Hereford team and #10 3A Shallowater. Greenwood took it upon themselves to get back to their winning way Friday night against Seminole posting a 28-21 win. Tomorrow night begins district play for District 1-4A Div.II. The Rangers will take on a 0-4 Sweetwater team at home. Sweetwater graduated over 20 players from last season and only two returned and they have a freshman quarterback. They are hungry for a win, and Greenwood might become that first win. The Rangers just need to focus on the game they’re in and execute their plays and they’ll be fine.

Plains took the week off last week and it’s a good thing because tomorrow they get to travel 255 miles to Cross Plains. The Cowboys are 2-1 already and their spirits are up. They’re looking to make an impact in district play and this is how it can be done. The Buffaloes are 3-1 and in recent years have become a playoff team. So the Cowboys have an opportunity to make this long trip into something good. Since Plains has to travel so long, they’ll have a long ride home with a 2-2 record.

Seagraves is really struggling this season. Being 1-3 on the season was not the expectation for the Eagles. However, this week they will take on Van Horn at home. With an appetite to win a game, this will happen tomorrow night. Seagraves has some work to do, and they will get some good practice in this game before heading into their bye week to rest and make some major adjustments. Seagraves will win at home.

Tahoka lost another game to a 3A Division I team last Friday night. Littlefield needed a win, and they bullied the Bulldogs with an eight-point win 41-33. Tahoka has placed themselves in a great position before district play. Opening the season with 126 points and losing to two 3A-Div. I teams by a total of 19 points. Needless to say, the Bulldogs have nothing to be ashamed about. Tomorrow night the Bulldogs get another challenge before district hosting #9 Sundown. The Roughnecks are 3-1 thus far and are looking for a major playoff run in 2A-Div. I, at least regionally. Tahoka will have their hands full Friday night.

Meadow has become 0-4 for the first time in years! Klondike put 45 point mercy rule on them Friday night sending them packing and realizing that this is a rebuilding year. Good news for the Broncos, its another week and they get to play their fifth in a row out of town game against Hart. This game will go to the end of the fourth quarter, or it should. Hart posts a 2-2 record with wins over Lazzbuddie and Kress and losses from Motley County and Amherst. Meadow and Hart do not have any common opponents this season so far, so it’s somewhat hard to choose this one. Well, Meadow is used to traveling and they want a win so bad that they can taste it. They will travel back home with their heads up and 1-4.

Ropes took a good trip to play on artificial turf against the Cardinals of Hermleigh and like Meadow, their district foe, lost 51-28. The Eagles will make the correct adjustments because that is what Coach Jackson does. They travel again with going to Spur. The Bulldogs are 3-1 and being at home is always nice, especially in the Snake Pit. This will be a good game, but Spur will be 4-1.

Wellman-Union began their game last week on all cylinders then came the second quarter. The Wildcats took a 52-20 loss, however, the silver lining is that the 45 point mercy rule was not employed and something to note is that all five teams in District 5-1A Div. I lost. This week WU will see a 0-4 Sands team. Something kind of like Meadow, 0-4 for the Mustangs has not been seen in a long time. I predicted that the Wildcats would go 2-8 this season, however, the ever-evolving of this season, I’m going to change my mind. WU will be 3-2 at the end of the game.
