Varsity Mules Advance To Region
Wednesday, November 25, 2015
The Mules took the best the Breckenridge Buckaroos had to give for just over one half of football Friday night. But the Mules took advantage of four Buckaroo fumbles in the second half to win the Area Championship Friday night in Big Spring’s Memorial Stadium 31-20.

“It was hard tonight,” said Mule coach David Wood. “We did not have our best game and could have just hung it up when we got behind 20-8 to start the second half. But our kids just continued to fight and finally things began to go our way.”

“We felt like they were wearing down in the second half and that is unusual in the playoffs. Our running game began to gain yards and our defense just made stop and stop to keep them from scoring. Our defense then forced turnover after turnover that gave us opportunities to score.”

“Our kids have heart.”

Wednesday, November 25, 2015
Changing sports is more difficult than many fans may think.

The seventh grade Mules just completed an undefeated football season then worked out a few days before playing their first basketball game of the season.

Joe Gutierrez seemed to change his uniform a bit quicker than some of his teammates as he lead the Mules with 27 points.

Fourteen of those points were in the third period.
