The Bulldogs went in to win the West Texas Championship and
did so due to the fact that "Bus'" toe out-kicked the Loboes'
against the wind and held the Loboes at bay till the windstorm
was in their direction. There were many exciting plays through-
out the game with passes, runs, and kicks. The Loboes tried
field goals many times but were not true to the aim and failed.
Then in the last quarter the Bulldogs put the ball on their
thirty-yard line, held the Loboes for four downs, made a field
goal, and the game was
Ranger Bulldogs--21 Wichita Falls---0
Ranger Bulldogs---7 Oak Cliff -----25
