The Lampasas Badgers won over the favored Canyon Lake Hawks Friday evening! The Badgers are now, clearly, the number two team in the district. Even if Lampasas should lose its last game to Fredericksburg, a playoff berth is already assured.
The Badgers were behind in that Canyon Lake game at the half and the team was going to have to rise up in the second half to overcome a big 27-14 deficit.
Rise up they did, as the Badger defense all but shut down the Hawks, holding them to 80 yards total offense in that second half. The Badger offense took over and scored another 20 points in that second half, while the Hawks couldn’t get across the goal line. It was a glorious victory and now Lampasas, in the number 2 spot in district, wants to hold that position as they face Fredericksburg in Badger Stadium on Friday. It will be the last regular season game and the final district placings determine who, and where, Lampasas will be playing their first playoff game.
