Tonight the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen and Lady Plainsmen host Midland College in their final home games for the 2011-12 season. The womenâ€™s game will tip off at 5:45 p.m. followed by the men at around 7:30 p.m.
Despite winning their first two tournament games by a combined score of 31-0, the Borger Lady Bulldogs knew they would face a tough challenge in the championship game of the Sanford-Fritch â€śDucks on the Pondâ€ť Softball Tournament against district foes Dalhart.
The Lady Bulldogs didnâ€™t keep the Lady Wolves scoreless, but the team continued to have hot bats at the plate by winning the tournament title with a 19-10 win.
The game was a close battle until the Lady Bulldogs found their groove at the plate and started pulling away at the end of the game.
The Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen softball team had a busy weekend competing in eight games over three days at the Murray State Festival in Tishomingo, Okla.
Over the three days, the Lady Plainsmen posted a 3-5 record.
