Friday evening, the Borger Bulldogs running game and smothering defense had its way against the Perryton Rangers, resulting in a 32-14 win at Bulldog Stadium.
Borger senior Ty Brown used 36 carries to rush for 304 yards and four touchdowns, while the Rangers were held to just 160 yards of total offense.
The win allows the Bulldogs to finish District 1-3A play with a 3-0 record and gives the team a 10-1 district mark in three seasons Rusty Purser has been head coach. The Bulldogs have also won their third straight District 1-3A title.
It was simple last night for West Texas High. Win the ball game and earn the third place playoff sport in what is probably the toughest 1A District in the state, or lose and start basketball season. The Stratford Elks have been to the state playoffs since 1998, including some recent runner up finishes and a couple of State Titles. If memory serves me, the last time the Tribe has won against the Elks, was 2001. The Comanches handled their business 16-7. So, â€śHow about them Comanches?â€ť
