The first of two Lamar county showdowns takes place this Friday, Oct. 26, 2018 between the Chisum Mustangs and Prairiland Patriots at 7:30 p.m.
Prairiland is hopeful and eager as they search for their first district win this season, however they come into the game as the underdogs as Chisum sits in second place in district with a record of 3-1. Prairiland has had a tough season seeing one win, but a disappointing season can be lifted by giving a cross-town rival a run for their money. More than once an underdog has surprised an overly-confident team and this could be witnessed at Friday nights at the game.
The rivalry has gone back and forth, but Chisum has won the past two years with both games ending in a shutout. In 2016 Chisum beat Prairiland 7-0, and then again in 2017 with a score of 24-0. Prairilands last victory in this match-up came in 2015. This Friday night game could go either way and will be one to watch.
