Plan to be at the Redman Friday night by 7:30 to be part of the Bold Gold's welcome home party as they take on the Slaton Tigers for the first home game of the season.
The Lopes go into the pre-district game 1-1 after outlasting Lamesa, 14-7 there last week. (Click here for the Lamesa story.)
Slaton enters week 2 also with a 1-1 record after dropping a game to Abernathy last Friday, 42-13.
The Junior High (7th and 8th grade teams) play their first games of the season Thursday at home. The seventh grade begins at 5:00 p.m. and the eighth grade team follows. The eighth graders come off of an undefeated, 7-0, district championship season.
The Junior Varsity (1-1) travel to Slaton on Thursday for a 6:00 p.m. kick-off.
Expect the Slaton varsity team to feature a spread passing game on offense and a four front, three linebacker defense.
Hope to see you at the game Friday. But if you can't be there, listen online to Post Sports Radio for live play-by-play. The pre-game starts at 7:10 with the kick-off at 7:30 p.m.
