Bold Gold Look for 2nd District Win

JV & JH games are scattered

Published Oct. 18, 2012 @ 1:16 a.m.

The Antelopes varsity football team will have their work cut out for them this week as they face a new District 2-2A, Division II challenger.  The Bold Gold hope to take the sting out of the Tulia Hornets high scoring offense.

Post with a 1-0 district record faces a team that was picked to finish last behind the Lopes according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine.  As things look going into Week 7 of the season, both teams are playoff contenders. 

Tulia (0-1) suffered a close loss to Abernathy last week, 14-7, it's lowest scoring game of the season by far.  The Hornets have the district's top offense averaging 35 points a game using the passing spread formation.  Post is coming off it's highest scoring game of the season, 48, against Roosevelt.  The Lopes average 32.5 a game mostly using a ground attack. 

On defense Tulia gives up 28 points while Post allows only 23 a game.
Thursday evening the JV Lopes will travel to Littlefield for a 5:00 p.m. game since Tulia does not have a JV squad this week.  The junior high teams are spread out with the "Fun Bunch" B-team playing at 5:00 p.m. in Hamlin and the 7th and 8th grade teams are at Tulia with the first game to start at 5:00 p.m.

Other district action includes Abernathy (1-0) at Floydada (1-0) and Olton (0-1) will host Roosevelt (0-1).

The weather forecast for Friday night calls for clear and calm conditions with a kickoff temp at about 70 degrees.
