On Tuesday night, the Borger Lady Bulldogs won their 2011-12 home opener against the White Deer Lady Bucks 58-42 at Tex Hanna Gym.
The game featured some sloppy play that is expected arly in the season, including a lot of turnovers and cold shooting. But the young Lady Bulldogs showed that this team potentially will be a fun one to watch all season, due to solid play on both ends of the court.
In the second half, the Lady Bulldogs came out playing more aggressive on both ends of the court.

PETA asked the tiny Texas Panhandle town of Turkey on Monday to change its name to Tofurky for Thanksgiving.
PETA made its pitch to â€śpromote compassion,â€ť it said in its letter, offering to provide a â€śdelicious, healthy vegan holiday feastâ€ť for the town in exchange for the name change.
The people in the community has made their voices heard by saying "thanks but no thanks."
But what do you think? Should the town of Turkey accept PETA's offer?
Let us know what you think by voting on our weekly poll.
