Wildcats begin playoffs with victory

The Littlefield Wildcats won the Bi- District trophy after their 44-36 win against Brownfield Thursday night on Lowrey Field in Lubbock. They were all expressing their joy at getting to advance in the playoffs. The Wildcats will play the winner of Eastland versus Brady, next week.
Littlefield won their fifth straight game with a 44-36 victory versus Brownfield, in the first round of the playoffs. The first quarter started off rather slowly, offensively, as both teams punted twice, and the game was scoreless at the end of the first quarter. The Wildcats pinned Brownfield back at their own twoyard-line, but that did not faze the Cubs’ offense.

Now that colder weather is causing trees to drop their leaves, these three workers were raking, mowing and vacuuming leaves on the north yard of the Police Department building (formerly the City Hall), Thursday morning. Someone will probably have to do it again, since there are still many leaves on these trees that haven’t turned loose.
