Graford Lady Rabbits win District 11-A opener over Bryson, 55-17


GRAFORD – Graford opened with a 19-1 run and never looked back as the Lady Rabbits ran past the Bryson Cowgirls, 55-17, here Friday night in the District 11 (Division II) opener for both teams.

The win evens the Lady Rabbits’ overall record to 10-10.

“I was pleased with the win on Friday,” Lady Rabbits head coach Jarod Westmoreland said. “We still have a few defensive things we need to work on, and offensively, we need to shoot a little better.

Three Lady Rabbits – Tyler Wimberly, Ashly Rogers and Sydney Wimberly – almost each recorded double doubles.

Tyler Wimberly scored 13 points with six steals; Rogers added 13 points while pulling down five rebounds; and Sydney Wimberly scored 12 points and registered seven steals.

In the third period, Graford went on an 11-4 run to take a 46-15 lead into the fourth quarter.

GORDON – Jayde Price scored 30 points and pulled down 15 rebounds to lead the No. 7 Strawn Lady Hounds to a 64-27 win over the Gordon Lady Longhorns here Friday night in a District 17 (Division II) contest.

  • FB Gordon at Strawn b8.jpg FWIW: Good, clean hate – Ranking the area's best rivalry games of the 2014 football season


    Football season is fast approaching and with it those glorious games between teams that love to hate each other, which we call rivalries.

    I'm speaking, of course, about sports hate – the only beautiful kind. It's the stuff built on history and tradition that inspires simply the fiercest and most entertaining games of every season.

    Palo Pinto County and the surrounding area have no shortage of fierce football rivalries.

    The University Interscholastic League's realignment often causes new rivalries to be born and old ones to be rekindled. But which rivalries are the area's very best for 2014? The one's you circle your calendar for and make sure you don't miss.

    I can think of at least 10.

    So, for what it's worth, here's my list of the area's best, can't-miss football rivalries of the upcoming 2014 season.
