WOODROW-A slow start and turnovers proved to maKe the difference in an otherwise evenly fought contest between the Borger Bulldogs and Monahans Lobos on Friday night.
Two Lobo touchdowns in the first quarter and three Bulldog turnovers, which killed promising drives, allowed Monahans to get the 21-7 win at Lubbock Cooper Pirate Stadium, to improve to 5-1 while Borger drops to 2-4.
On the opening kickoff, the Lobos took the ball 52 yards to set up their first drive at the Bulldogs 32 yard line.
On Friday night, the Sanford-Fritch Eagles played tough and moved the ball up and down Eagle Field to beat the Floydada Whirlwinds 47-19.
The West Texas Comanches improved their season record to 5-1 with a 42-7 win over the Claude Mustangs. Claude had only lost once until last night, but the Comanches left little doubt that they were in charge of the game. The Mustangs have a huge line but WT had an answer for that with the likes of big Ty Lay, Austin Ivy, Dylan Ewing, and Shane Keasler. The Comanche offense again put up big numbers behind their offensive line with 541 total offensive yards, 441 were on the ground.
