Grady falls to Borden County

October 30, 2010

GAIL — Borden County defeated Grady this week, but the Wildcats will be the Coyotes' biggest cheerleaders next week.

Stanton clinches playoff spot, Forsan falls to 1-4 in district play

October 29, 2010

STANTON — With a playoff spot on the line, the Stanton Buffaloes took care of business.

Stanton's 42-20 win over Forsan Friday in Stanton clinched a playoff spot for head coach John Peterson's squad. The Buffs earned the last spot right behind Idalou and Coahoma (those two teams play for a possible share of the district title next week). Stanton will finish up at Anson in Week 10.

“This is one of the goals we've had all year,” Peterson said. “Of course, we want to finish it out with another victory against Anson. This puts us in the playoffs, now we'll finish out the season next week.”
