After Tuesday afternoon, players and fans of the Borger Lady Bulldog and Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagle softball teams probably would call it a toss up between which is worse: playing in the freezing cold or playing in 50 mph winds that constantly is throwing layers of infield dirt onto anyone and anything in its path.
That was the condition the two teams battled through yesterday afternoon in their non-district game where the Lady Bulldogs came away with the 7-0 win in Fritch.

DUMAS-For their first year participating in high school soccer at the varsity level, it is hard not to be somewhat impressed with fact that the Dumas Demons are flirting with a .500 record and can clinch a playoff spot with a Canyon loss or tie to Pampa on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately that shot at a District 5-4A playoff berth will come at the expense of ending the Borger Bulldogs season on Friday night, as the Demons were able to come away with the 3-1 victory at Demon Stadium.
Friday afternoon old district foes tangled at Huber Park with the Lubbock Estacado Matadors in town to take on the Borger Bulldogs in non-district baseball action.
The Matadors have been one of the better 3A baseball programs in West Texas over the past couple of years and would be a good challenge for the Bulldogs as they get closer to District 1-3A play.
Fridayâ€™s contest would be a tight one with neither team pulling away to more than a one run lead. However the Matadors would get the one run they needed in the top of the eighth inning to leave Borger with the 6-5 win.
