Buffs scrimmage Lamesa in final tune-up

STANTON – The contagious effects of enthusiasm and excitement overflowed from the players on the field and invigorated the fans in the stands as the Stanton Buffaloes meet the Lames Golden Tornadoes for the second scrimmage of the season at Buffalo Stadium in Stanton last Thursday evening.

Both teams looked well prepared for the scrimmage as both managed spectacular plays on offense and defense. The Buffs first string and second string found the endzone once apiece and while Lamesa moved the ball well at times, was not able to break the plane during their series’ of plays.

Once the live quarter took over, Stanton seemed jittery and didn’t execute as well on either offense or defense allowing Lamesa to bust a play open for the only score of the period.

No excuses; it’s time to get this thing going again

STANTON – Every mention of the Stanton football team is usually followed by the mention of last year’s 0-9 season, a record that some media express as unlucky circumstances because of injuries and inexperience. These excuses are not traits displayed by the mighty and proud Stanton Buffaloes or their team leader, Coach John Peterson.

Not once all last season did the coaches or team use excuses of injuries or inexperience as an excuse for a loss. In fact the coaches post game explanations were “we did not play good enough for four quarters” on that night to win the game.
