 The Lampasas Badgers will head for Canyon Lake this evening for a 7pm game. The early game, says Coach Troy Rogers, shorts the team on a little practice time, but they'll be ready to go this evening in their first road game. Canyon Lake has some big and tall size boys up front. It is a Slot-T offensive team and seem to depend on running the ball.
