Cowboys Fight Hard But Come Up Short
Under near perfect weather Saturday afternoon, the Cowboys
came up short in their home opener against the Texas Lutheran
Bulldogs. The final score was 37-14 but it was a closer game

Cowboy mistakes. So unfortunately, the Cowboys played hard
but they lost where it counts the most, on the
But remember, "Cowboys Find a Way" and this Saturday September
20th, the Cowboys travel to Plainview Texas for a 2:00 PM tilt
against the Wayland Baptist Pioneers. There will be a large
contingent of Pioneers at the game so we need the Cowboy faithful
to turn out en masse to support the team.
The Developmental Squad made their Shelton Stadium debut
Monday night with an 18-7 victory over the Wayland Baptist
Pioneers. Hopefully the results are an omen for this
weekend. There was a great crowd on hand for the game and we
as fans need to keep up this pace because our younger players need
our support as well. Next Monday, September 22nd, the
Developmental Squad will travel to Belton Texas to take on our arch
nemesis, the Mary Hardin Baylor Crusaders. The game will be
at Crusader Stadium on the UMHB campus and kickoff will be at 6:00
PM. This is another game in the Central Texas area so for the
fans on the eastern side of the state, this is another easy travel
game so please make plans to attend.
