Childress Falls To Muleshoe, 44-14
Thursday, October 30, 2014
The Mule defense smothered the running game of Childress and held the Bobcats to just nine yards on 19 rushes.

Two Mule miscues allowed Childress to hang close in the first half. But the Mules came out firing on all cylinders in the second half to defeat Childress 44-14.

“The long ride did not hurt us tonight,” said Mule coach David Wood. “Childress was not the longest trip for us this year and I believe that made a big difference. It was good night for us.”
