Clifton takes aim at district foes

By Brett Voss

Now it’s time to move on to the next season, as high school football coaches around the state call it. But most importantly, this is the one that counts. And when District 10-3A, Division II opens this Friday night, the Clifton Cubs will face the best the league has to offer right out of the gate. But then again, everything came together for the Cubs in their final non-district game two weeks ago. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Although Clifton (2-3) does not enter district with a winning record, they have a winning attitude after blanking perennial powerhouse Bosqueville, 15-0, Sept. 25.

Bosque County teams eye district

By Brett Voss

Bosque County teams continue to look strong and playoff worthy as teams behind to look ahead to district competition. While Meridian remained undefeated as only area team to play a district game last week, all eight county teams will move into league play during the next two weeks. Last season, only two county teams posted winning records and only one qualified for the postseason. As the 2015 season hit midseason, four teams have posted winning records while five appear poised to make legitimate runs at playoff berths.
