So much has happened, such as surprising teams, fantastic finishes and the opening of Class 4A Southwest League play last week that was quite an appetizer for the rest of the league openers.
The Eagles will host a 20-team field in the Boulder City Invitational, a week after ranking as the highest valley finisher in the Durango Fall Classic.
Several games around the valley were decided in the final minutes Friday, which made for an exciting night,
The Patriots led 12-0 in the first half and twice after halftime but couldn’t hold on in a 36-33 loss to Libery (Arizona) at home Friday night.
The Chargers’ defense has been the catalyst of the team’s 3-1 start, and it will face a Spring Valley team in the Southwest League opener that has struggled offensively.
The Aggies finally prevailed 38-32 Friday night by scoring on their overtime drive, then stopping the potent Longhorns’ passing attack on fourth down.
