Friday Night Lights shut down Buffs again

STANTON – Friday night lights is starting to take on an entirely new meaning as Mother Nature is wowing football crowds with lightning shows reminiscent of April thunderstorms. The dazzling streaks of light caused several game cancellations and numerous more delays with some schools wrapping up ball games close to midnight. Stanton was one of the unlucky few that were forced to cancel its game, but not just any game, homecoming. The entire town was excited about Friday’s annual homecoming competition but it will be written in history as neither a win nor a loss but cancelled due to weather.

Grady Wildcats fall to Highland Hornets in classic six man football battle

GRADY – The night sky at the corner of Highways 176 and 829 was lit up with the bright stadium lights from M.W. Tunnell Field at Grady High School.
