In the early days of the Borger Lady Bulldog Soccer program, finding consistent success on the field was something that the team struggled with, including coming up short in finding a way to get into post-season play.
Fortunately, things have changed over the past several years, as the Lady Bulldogs will take part in the 4A playoffs for the fourth year in a row when they take on the Abilene Wylie Lady Bulldogs in the Region I Area Round on Monday afternoon in Wichita Falls.
Friday afternoon Midland College left Borger taking both games in their series with the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen 9-5 and 11-3.
The Lady Plainsmen played host to Odessa College today.
