Through three periods, the Borger Bulldogs had control of their game with the Clarendon Broncos in the semifinals of the Amarillo River Road Tournament.

The Bulldogs held a 45-37 lead going into the final period. But the Bulldogs went six minutes in the fourth period without scoring a basket and giving Clarendon the opportunity for the comeback.

Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards said the live and dry pine trees can be a fire hazard if not handled properly.
Special fire safety precautions need to be taken when keeping a live tree in the house. A burning tree can rapidly fill a room with fire and deadly gases.
