The Borger Bulldogs welcomed the Caprock Longhorns to town with an upset on their minds. Caprock has won the last two meetings between these teams, last year winning 63-49. They put up 70 points last week against Snyder, so the Bulldogs knew coming into the contest that they would have their work cut out for them this week. And boy did they go to work. Between the two teams, 97 points would be scored and 921 yards of offense would be accumulated. Sadly, the Bulldogs came up just three points short to 4A Caprock at Bulldog Stadium.
