PAMPA-After a rough outing in Perryton on Saturday, there was plenty of curiosity in wondering how the Borger Bulldogs would respond when they took the field in Pampa on Tuesday to take on the District 1-3A leading Harvesters.
Fortunately it looks as if Saturdayâs loss lit a fire under the Bulldogs. The team put together a game that included good pitching, solid defense and hot bats to leave Harvester Field with a 13-5 win to end the first round of district play with a 2-1 record and going to 11-10-1 overall for the season.
