Littlefield Lady Cats crush Tulia, 68-35

By JOE GONZALES
 
Tulia started Friday night’s game against the Lady Cats stalling on offense in hopes of slowing down the pace of the game and Littlefield. Unfortunately for them, their stall tactic didn’t work out. Tulia fell behind 18-0 early on, and the Lady Cats cruised to the 68-35 win. “Looking a the match-up, I honestly think they (Tulia) knew if they didn’t try to keep it a low scoring game they had much of chance,” said Littlefield Head Coach Kendall Webb. The Lady Cats had three players finish in double figures.
