(Boys) Randall 3 Borger 1
Going into last night the Borger Bulldogs were hoping to leave Kimbrough Memorial Stadium with a win or a tie in order to take a one point or half a point lead over Dumas and Canyon for the fourth playoff spot in District 5-4A.
Unfortunately, the Randall Raiders ruined those plans by getting the 3-1 win over the Bulldogs to send their record to 3-7-1 in district play, 6-11-1 overall, while keeping their district point total at 3.5.
The Raiders struck early when Hutton Sharp scored the first goal in the game in the 10th minute to take a 0-1 lead.

However over the past week, the Dumas Demons have decided to make the race a three team battle, thanks to defeating Canyon on Saturday, leading to a three-way tie for the fourth spot with each team currently holding 3.5 points in the district standings.
